Re: Annotation

We aren't in the financial position to purchase a second copy of the books, so we chose not to have our son annotate directly in the books to allow them to be re-used with our younger daughter. I think sticky notes work well, as the child is still interacting with the text and still has notes of his...

Re: Calculator for Algebra 1

A scientific calculator would be fine for Algebra 1. (We didn't start using a graphing calculator until Pre-Calculus.)

Re: Assessment for Kids

We started testing using the CAT-E, but found the results didn't give us much detail. We then switched to the IOWA and found the results to be much more thorough and very helpful. You can see an example of the IOWA test results here: https://www.setontesting.com/wpsetontesting/wp-content/uploads/202...

Re: We hope the board is fixed now!

The board is working fine for me, and some issues I had using the website are all resolved now, except the website is very slow. Whenever I click on a link, I have to wait quite awhile before the new page will load.

Re: New Website Coming...

Wow!!! I LOVE the new website! I especially enjoyed reading the "About Us" page and seeing all of the pictures of your family. :)

The website is extremely well-done and easy to use. Thank you for all of the hard work that went into designing it!

I can't imagine homescshooling without HOD!!

Re: Several ?'s about Grammar and Placement

Doing a different level of grammar (or even a separate grammar program altogether) would not be a problem, as the plans for R&S English are not connected with the history, science, math, etc. My son has been several years ahead of the guides in English, and it's not been an issue for us. The only ti...

Re: New to HOD

We used our own math for the younger and middle guides, and my son has been several levels ahead in English, so we really haven't followed those parts of the guides, but the using the guides for history/Bible/geography (and electives) has been MORE than worth it, in my opinion. With my son, I had ho...

Re: 2nd Purchase of Teacher's Guide - Discount?

Just a little note to mention that you can reuse the guides for subsequent children, using a different check-off system for each one. For instance, for my son, I put a check in each box when the box was completed. Down the road, when my daughter used the same guide, I put her initial in each complet...

Re: World Geography English 1 vs Fund Lit & Engl/Comp

I'm pretty sure both options are the same; it's just a matter of how you want to list it on your child's transcript. Some prefer to list just one credit of English (which includes both English/Composition & Literature), whereas others prefer to break the two areas apart into two 1/2 credit courses, ...

Re: CTC after PHFHG?

I agree with Rice! :-) Preparing is a one-year overview of world history. After that, world history is again studied chronologically, but spread over four years to allow for much more depth. I believe a combination of the resources used in CTC and the way history is studied in a more detailed manner...

Re: Interest in Reviving the Board?

Oh, yes!!! It would be great to see the board revived. I've been a part of the board for over almost 11 years, ever since we began HOD with my little boy in Beyond Little Hearts. He is now finishing up his high school journey, with HOD still being a wonderful part of that journey. I have been tremen...

Re: Struggling Learner Getting Further and Further Behind

How does your son do when material is read to him, rather than him reading it himself? If he does much better with comprehension with materials read to him, then I'm wondering if you could move from having him read the CTC material himself, to listening to it read aloud. If he has dyslexia, it is no...

Re: NBing pages & new guides: moving forward

With the current guide, students make their own notebooks, using a 3-ring binder. All of the instructions are in the guide and are easy for the students to follow. HTH :)

I have received all the materials needed to implement what we discussed. Now that I am looking at the details, if I have Ruth do the extensions in MTMM, what incentives does she have to read those books? The teacher's guide has activities for the basic books but no activities for the extension book...
