Re: Assessment for Kids

If you think your child has gaps in math or grammar, you might want to use some placement tests to spot those. Many curriculums have placement tests, and most are free.

Re: Summer...are you taking a break?

We are continuing through the summer, but on a slower schedule. We are aiming for 2 days of the guide to be done each physical week. Some weeks, like this week, we won't get that much in. But it means we can take more time off when places aren't as crowded! Plus my kids tend to get bored if we take ...

Re: State history

The curriculum HOD uses in MtMM could easily be done in 5th or 6th grades. Depending on what guide you are in at that point, you could either swap it out with another box or just do it on top of the guide. It is only one day per unit, so it isn't a big item. If you have a child in RtR, you could swi...

Another "School Year" Started

We started school up again after 3 weeks of only doing math and dictation on Monday. I now have four gudies going almost fully! My oldest is starting WG. We are doing it mostly as written, with three substitutions (math, foreign language, and Bible). Some things she is grumbling about, but so far ha...

Re: Please help! I need help with curriculum placement for my 3 children.

I am not sure on placement for then. Have you gone and actually looked at the placement chart with fresh eyes to see where you think they place? As for the hymns study, you could easily have them all participate in that together. It is only a few minutes a day, so you could do that around a meal or ...

Re: Subjects Covered

I agree that Preparing definely covers all but government, economics, health, and PE explicitly. Government and economics I think are mentioned some in history, and they are explicitly covered in Rev2Rev and MtMM. If you want to make sure you check all of the boxes, you could spend a day going over ...

Re: Science for 6th Grader

Welcome! You will probably get more replies if you ask this question on the main board. But the extensions for Preparing are just history. They aren't science. So, for an advanced 6th grader, I would definitely do something else. I am assuming you want to keep your kids combined for history. If that...

Re: Spring Sale

We were so thankful for the sale and the option to update our Bigger and Preparing guides! The sale saved our family about $200! I ordered almost everything for WG (using a different math and foreign language), most of the consumables for Rev2Rev for the middle two, and then the Bigger and Preparing...

Re: What do I do if we missed a year?

I would only skip a guide if the guide gets VERY easy and your child places a guide ahead in the placement chart. It is easy to use MtMM for high school. The biggest challenge is adding economics in at some point. The science your can use as written and count it as an elective science or switch it o...

Re: Several ?'s about Grammar and Placement

One thing to consider is if you can work on some of the weak areas in the next few months. Likely your oldest could work on writing and possibly place 1-2 guides higher. I know many families jump into Dithor at the 6/7/8 level with no previous literary analysis. So I wouldn't any away from Rev2Rev o...

Re: College & Career Planning Curriculum

I don't think it is covered. And honestly, it is best for much of that not to be in the guides. First, there are students who aren't college bound or who start with community college (and therefore don't need the tests, etc). Second, testing and scholarships can change dates, and things aren't alway...

Re: New to HOD

We have used our own math and sometimes something different for writing and Bible, and I have find HOD to still be worth it. We have used it since 2013. My oldest did almost everything in the early guides. But I had to skip some things with my middle two to keep sanity! If it rant for the youngest, ...

A follow-up question: Is the second half of Rod & Staff English 7 completed in World History?
Yes. Then Level 8 is split over the last two guides.
