It mentions on the web-site the possibility of using the extension package as read-aloud books for younger students. My main qu...

Re: I am thinking of using HOD...

Yes, I think you'll be fine to go ahead with Bigger. You may want to adjust the amounts of writing for him, easing him into things. I still have my dd do Rod and Staff orally.

Re: I am thinking of using HOD...

Thank you ladies! I Love seeing so many in agreement about the same levels for my children.

Re: I love how HOD lays the foundation in...

I came on this board today with my prayers of HOD possibly being our new curriculum for my 8, 6 1/2, and almost 5 year olds. This thread I just stumbled upon has been such a blessing to me as it let me see into the heart and foundation of the HOD curriculum. Thank you ladies! The sincerity on this t...

I am thinking of using HOD and I was wondering if you kind ladies could answer a few questions for me. 1. I am looking for something that is conservative, Bible based, gospel focused, young Earth, and academically appropriate for children who tend to be accelerated learners. Do you think HOD will wo...
