Re: Questions about BHFHG

I will say that of all the curriculum and "stuff" we have used over the years, HOD is the stuff they remember. One of my boys asked me something about a bird the other day, and I KNOW we covered it (because I cut out all the little flaps for his lapbook, by golly! we covered it!!) but he had absolut...

Re: What Bible version do you use with the lesson?

My boys all have their own Bibles-they are the Adventure Bible and the Adventure Bible for young readers and they are NIV and NIrV. My personal favorite translation is my RSV, but that's from when I was in grade school *coughcough* so it's kinda old. :lol: I do like my Harper-Collins NRSV with the a...

Re: Combining 1st and 4th grader?

Welcome to the Boards! :-)
I am doing Bigger with my 8 and 10 year olds, but using the extension pack for the 10 year old. Carrie has some wonderful words of wisdom for you on combining and/or placement in the programs.

Re: Really need some advice!

I think whatever you decide is going to be fine. :-) Sometimes I need to hear that myself! :-) I am doing Bigger with my 4th and 3rd grader. The 4th grader is a bit above grade level in almost everything; so he gets the extension pack. The 3rd grader is a bit behind in everything, so he gets it as w...

Re: Our first day with HOD!

Awesome!!! I have to laugh when my bigger boys (especially the 6 foot tall 15 year old) enjoy the rhymes and actions as much as the younger ones! :-) It just proves to me that HOD has a pretty broad appeal. <3

Re: Need Your Wisdom!

Narration is something that we don't work as hard on as I think we should, so I can relate! I will ask the boys what they read, or what I just read to them, and they will say, "oh, something about a guy who likes birds and stuff." from our John Audubon book. I like Carrie's advice; just thought I'd ...

Re: where to start in the Emerging Reader Schedule

I'm not sure what the "right" answer is :lol: but we skipped the Beginner's Bible. My son didn't care for it; he just got his "real" bible at church and thought it was too babyish now. :roll: :lol: (he's in 3rd grade) We used some other beginning reader book we had around here until it was time to s...

OT-Just sharing some praise!

Lots of things have been going on in my house-but a few answered prayer/praise things I wanted to share! First of all, my 2 year old had two seizures a couple weeks ago-scary stuff! He had all kinds of testing and it appears to be all is normal! praise the Lord! So they call it a childhood seizure d...

Re: How does the dc in HOD learn their spelling rules?

I think my boys have learned it better since they have to sort out the "rules" for themselves-as someone else already mentioned. I would also put in a plug for dictation-my high schooler is doing a dictation based spelling curriculum, and I've seen him learn so much from that. Seeing his success act...
