Re: Pros and cons of combining in the higher guides (CTC and

When I first brought my kids home, I put all 3 of them in BHFHG. Honestly, the main reason was that we just couldn't afford another set of curriculum. I bought most of BHFHG used, too. At the time, my kids were in 1st, 4th, and 5th. The following year, they were all combined in PHFHG. Looking back, ...

Re: 4 y/o beginig writing what do I do?

Why don't you just find a workbook or print pages off of dashed letters/words that she can trace? Don't make her do them, but just set one out every now and then and explain that you trace over the letter/word.

Re: Scheduling help - 2 in RTR; 1 in Bigger

A lot of Res to Ref is independent work, so I wouldn't think they would need you a whole lot. Your child in Bigger will require more of your time, of course. In the beginning, your olders will need instruction, but only until they get into the routine of Res to Ref. I have two in it and they barely ...

My daughter will be a 9th grader doing MtMM. Where can I learn more about the Chemistry DVDs and the Carbon Chemistry that was mentioned? What company puts that out?

Re: CTC year at a glance?

Could you combine them in science perhaps? You wouldn't want to combine them in much else, or it would be a repeat for next year for the youngest. Why can't you combine them for whichever guide you already have? Tell me more about their ages/levels.

Re: Advice on High school science for my daughter

Tammy, thanks so much for responding. I think I will ditch general science and stick with HOD's choice for Res to Ref.

Re: Advice on High school science for my daughter

Are you saying that I shouldn't skip CtC for her? Without modifying it to death, how would it be enough for a 7th grader?

Re: Help with Placement Please!

Tammy, thanks so much for you insight into Apologia v. HoD science. I love, love, love Apologia's elementary science and wondered if I wanted to stick with it or just do what HoD suggests for science. Thanks to you, I think I'll choose HoD's suggestions.
