Re: A Great Transition from CTC to RTR !

Thanks, Julie! :D He's really enjoyed the HOD guides that we've done so far, and is really looking forward to the ones to come! :wink: I wanted to share our experience just to testify to the fact that the "jump" from one guide to the next, isn't really a jump at all! Kids are really well prepared fo...

Re: R&S Question

Re: R&S Question

Here's another thought, to make things more confusing! :shock: What do you think about doing half of level 5 for her CTC year (6th grade), working in a lesson on the fifth day of the week when you're able to? Even if you did 1/4 of the book on the fifth days, then do the same thing the next year. So...

Re: CLE LA instead of R&S - miss out??

Hi Tiffanie! :D Glad to hear that you'll soon be enjoying Preparing Hearts! We did that guide last year and had SO much fun with it! :D You're in for a great year! I just want to reassure you that R&S English can be really enjoyable! It might seem dry on the surface, but doing most of the lesson ora...

Re: A Great Transition from CTC to RTR !

I wouldn't recommend skipping any of the guides. The skills built within them build on each other, so skipping a guide would disadvantage your child in the gradual building of skills, as well as missing a big piece of the puzzle. I'd just move along through them taking them in order! :wink: We don't...

Re: A Great Transition from CTC to RTR !

When we began, my son appeared to place in CTC. However, after doing three units in CTC, we realized that he was improperly placed. I emailed Carrie and shared with her how things were going, and she suggested that we drop back down to Preparing Hearts. Wow, that was a really good decision. He did s...

A Great Transition from CTC to RTR !

When we began HOD, my son started out in Preparing Hearts. He did great with the program, and then this year moved into CTC. When we learned that HOD was going to do high school guides, my son did the math and realized that he wouldn't get to do the last high school guide before he graduated. So aft...

Re: Girl and boy, 4 years apart

Gina, welcome to the HOD family! :D Glad to have you here! :D I just wanted to encourage you about choosing Preparing. From what you shared about your daughter, it does sound like a good fit for her and a good place to begin your HOD journey! We began our oldest in Preparing when we first began HOD!...

Re: Paint Supplies for CTC

Re: Sneak Peeks for Revival to Revolution?

Mamas4bugs Thanks for the insight and encouragement about RTR! :D After getting the guide a month or so ago, and getting it all ready and set up for him, I have to admit that I'm pretty excited about it myself. I've been reading all the books and am learning so much and enjoying them immensely! :win...

Re: Sneak Peeks for Revival to Revolution?

Hi Carrie! Well, whatever you changed must have done the trick, because now the link works just fine! I wanted to get back on here and let you know that, but I had a little crisis in the meantime. After I initially posted about having trouble viewing the link, I decided I'd go to the user controls a...
