Re: Placement help for 6, 5 and 3 year old.

My suggestion is to do LHFHG with the two older kiddos, using the K options for the younger kiddo and the 1st grade options for the older kiddo. I think this could simplify your life teaching them both. The youngest could do Little Hands to Heaven at a relaxed pace if you wanted, or just tag along f...

Re: Placement help for my soon to be 1st and 3rd grader

One solution could be to combine them in Beyond. They could do Bible, Science, and History together. You could get the Bigger guide as well and use the language arts and math from there to add challenge for your older daughter. You could also start having your older daughter do simple notebooking pa...

Re: Placement help for my upcoming 8th & 9th graders

Considering everything you said, it sounds like MTMM would be the best choice. Your child who will be a 9th grader can do the extensions to beef it up and make it suitable for high school while your child who will be in 8th grade would do the program as is, without extensions. This means your older ...

Re: LHFHG for an older student

I know you already own Little Hearts and Bigger Hearts-but have you considered trying Beyond to combine the almost 6 year old and 9 year old? It would depend on if the younger child could handle Beyond. I don't think Little Hearts would offer enough challenge for a 9 year old, but Beyond could be tw...

Re: Can we talk learning styles?

I like HOD for that same reason, it works for all different learning styles, giving children practice in all modalities. I think it is good to be aware of your children's learning styles (and your own learning and teaching styles!), but I agree children should also practice using them all. I also th...

Oh, I see-that makes your concern clearer. Hopefully someone who has used/is using the guide can shed light on that for you!

Re: WG literature questions

I haven't done this guide yet, but I don't think it would make a difference to use the boy's set. I've read several of those myself, and I'm not a boy :)

Bigger Hearts Four Days a Week?

I'm thinking a little ahead, but I was wondering if anyone has done Bigger Hearts successfully in four days a week instead of five. I know you could just have a rotating day one, which would lengthen the school year. But I am thinking about making 5 days fit into 4. I have various reasons for wantin...

Re: What to do with a younger child who is an advanced reade

You could also add the Rod and Staff English book 2 for your 8 year old. It's scheduled one lesson per day in Bigger, but using it for him while he does Beyond can give him more of a challenge if you think he needs it.

Re: What to do with a younger child who is an advanced reade

Beyond does offer the option of using Drawn into the Heart of Reading for the independent reader, level 2/3, for your 8 year old. I don't think the children need any other independent work at that age, even if they are good readers. Even the Bigger Hearts guide does not have independent work section...

Re: Preparing or Creation to Christ

Before the high school guides were ever written, several people used the upper guides for beginning high school and adjusted when necessary to meet their state's guidelines for each grade. Just go in order, Preparing, CTC, RTR, Rev to Rev, MTMM, and then continue with the first high school guide. I'...

Re: 10 yr old boy not ready for CtC

He is currently 10? I would lean toward waiting another year before doing CTC, but I'm not sure what you could do for this year since he already did Preparing. Perhaps taking CTC at half speed to spread it out over 2 school years, while also working to strengthen his reading or help him get better a...

Re: MTMM science Exploration Education

Exploration Education is for Rev to Rev, but in answer to your question, you only need an additional Student Logbook for a second student.

Re: Requesting help for high school placement

It's good to put them right where they place in most cases. For your 10th grader, starting with World History means she will also get American History again for 11th and 12th. Maybe consider doing World Geography for 10th so that next year would be World History, and she will only have to repeat par...

Re: Cost

Have you asked DH why the cost seems excessive to him now as opposed to before? It might help you to know what is going on in his mind as you consider options together. I've been homeschooling for the better part of 25 years, and $765 for two children is really a great value! I've spent more than th...
