Re: Using HOD in Florida? Re: laws and records

Tamara, Florida is fairly simple. You file a notice of intent, one time when you begin homeschooling. Then, you need to keep a portfolio but it does not need to be everything....our homeschool group leaders recommend, even plead if they are the ones doing the evaluations , that we NOT keeping everyt...

Re: Advice on where to re-start....

I ended up going with Beyond, and will continue to use ARFH for handwriting until we finish our current book. Very excited about getting back to HOD! Decisions about dd will come later since she's not quite finished with her current curr. Thanks so much for all of the suggestions! :)

Re: Advice on where to re-start....

Great idea, Julie! That's probably what we will do. I don't think I'm comfortable dropping it completely, but half-speed should work well. He'll like that, I know. :) Plus, it will be easier for me to complete the boxes with him since his LA box will only take slightly more time instead of a full le...

Re: Advice on where to re-start....

Thanks, Carrie, for popping in to help me. :wink: Beginning in Bigger ... with my 12 and 8 yo is not an option. My daughter has already completed that program and I decided previously not to repeat it with her, esp. since she's already done most of Preparing ...as well. My daughter places in CTC. .....

Re: Advice on where to re-start....

W2W, yes I have considered that! Actually, I have both Bigger and CTC in my shopping cart right now, just so I could see how much it would cost to get both new. :lol: I'm not sure I can pay the money right now for both. I would likely start my son first because he is the one who has barely experienc...

Advice on where to re-start....

Hello, all. I have used HOD various years, but have not gotten through a full year in quite a while without switching to something else, then regretting it. :roll: That's a problem with me though, not HOD. I miss HOD, but I know I can only handle using one guide right now. That was the reason I was ...

Choosing books for your children to read

Hi everyone! It's been quite a while since I've visited here. I am not currently using HOD, though I plan to in another year or so with my 2.5 yo. I was hoping it would still be okay to pose a question here. I have had great experiences with the godly advice given here and I know of no other christi...

Re: Kinda OT: I need help getting baby to sleep to do school!!!!

I have not read all of the comments here so keep that in mind. Hopefully I'm not just repeating what others have said. We have always used the book On Becoming Babywise to help get our babies on a schedule and sleeping through the night. You do have to make it work for your family, not being legalis...

Re: R&S 3 Who vs Whom

I definitely use the TM! Though I feel I have a great command of the English language, write well, spell well, and know when to use who, whom, etc. I am NOT good at explaining the why of it. So, the TM helps a LOT. I think the pp's explained it very well. :o

Re: Questioning separate guides too (but didn't want to hi-jack

I'm now wondering if Beyond. .. might be a good idea after all. Thanks for the reminder, 8arrows. We only covered about 6 units, and he actually asked me when we were going to "read those books again" a couple of weeks ago. It's really been me that can't seem to get it together! Beyond ... worked we...

Re: Hooray!!! Got my box and a ? for you ladies. :o)

Many people use the next guide, Beyond. ...., for first grade and are very happy with that. LHFHG (as well as the other guides) are great preparation for the next guide in line. However, I think that Beyond .... is a better 2nd grade curriculum. My daughter just didn't seem to 'get' the story time o...

Re: A Couple of questions

I agree with the others, I would choose ONE and stick with it if at all possible! We have also used both of those, due to switching back and forth. I don't recommend it. Though we use a different program from either of those mentioned, I can see with my 3rd child that he is 'getting' things at this ...
