Notebooking Pages for Bigger

Post by ekfleet » Tue May 08, 2018 9:15 pm

Good Evening,

I hope its ok to start a new thread regarding the discussion on a previous one about notebooking pages for Bigger?
We are planning to start Bigger in July and I was curious if those would be available for purchase soon?

I think we are looking at mid-June for the pages to be available. :D They are beautiful and include timeline pages to assemble to make a fold out posterboard-sized timeline!! I think both parent and student will enjoy the pages. :D

Blessings,
Carrie

The pages will still work with an older guide of BIgger? I still have the 2007 guide I used with my other 3 children.

Ladies,

When creating the notebook pages for Bigger Hearts, I tried to stay as close as possible to the previous notebook assignments in earlier versions of the Bigger Hearts guides. In the end, I would say that about 75%-80% of the note booking assignments will work quite closely to the way the plans were written in the previous versions of the Bigger Hearts guide. :D The other 20%-25% of the assignments also correspond with the plans in previous versions of the guide, but the student may not know exactly what to do with the page as their part has changed.

There is also a large foldable timeline to assemble at the end of the notebook pages. If you have an earlier version of the Bigger Hearts guide, you can find assembly directions for the Bigger Hearts timeline on Unit 1 - Day 5 in the "Timeline" Box of the sample plans on our website. We have updated those sample pages as of last night, so they show the 2018 version of the plans. :D Link: https://www.heartofdakota.com/pdf/BHFHG ... s-2018.pdf

I hope this helps! Of course, if you have a previous version of the guide it still works as written without the new pages. Happy notebooking! :D

Blessings,
Carrie

Hello,
When looking at the new guide pages, I see that the grammar box looks different too. Rather than saying Rod and Staff p. 1-2 for example it now says something about levels and units. Have the assignments changed? Also, if we just bought the guide for this past year, do you think it is necessary to upgrade in order to get the notebooking instructions or will there be a supplement we could purchase with ONLY the day 5 updated notebook and timelines? I am trying to decide to just stay as is or if it worth it to upgrade since I still have three boys to go!! Thanks,
Michelle

Michelle,

The reason the grammar box looks different is that we have added the additional option of doing Rod and Staff English 3. So now the grammar box shows both English 2 and English 3 as options. You just choose one option. :D If you are using English 2,the lessons in your Bigger Hearts guide will be the same as those scheduled in the new guide. :D

As far as the notebooking pages go, you are able to use your current guide as written. If you did choose to go that route, you will be doing Bigger Hearts the way I did it with all of my boys! We enjoyed Bigger Hearts that way very much!! :D

If you do choose to purchase the notebooking pages, you would be able to do about 75-80% of the pages with no changes. You can also refer to the link I linked above to assemble your timeline. Either way, I think you will have a wonderful journey through Bigger Hearts.

We do not have a update you can purchase for the guide. As we update all of our various guides, it would be incredibly confusing and time-consuming to create and print individual updates every time we update a guide! This is our first major revision to Bigger Hearts since it was written many years ago. :D

Blessings,
Carrie
