Re: Preparing Hearts Good Fit for my 10 Year Old?

R & S English, in general, is considered at least a year advanced. Diagramming begins in R & S English 3. R & S English 4 begins t...

There are multiple levels of math, grammar, spelling, and reading available, so you can customize it to fit your son well. If your son is averaging writing 1-3 sentences in one setting, with guiding questions...

Re: Been using HOD for years, now at a loss

Thanks Julie for taking the time for such an in depth response. I appreciate the support you all offer. My main issue is she doesn't seem to what she has just read/been read to. I don't ask for a full narration, but when I ask her if she knows what the story is about....she isn't able to tell me. I...

Re: Advice for using World History

Hi Ladies, I really want to use the HS World History program next fall with my 10th grade daughter Liberty. I used it in the past (leaving out the living library) with another daughter and it was a lot. I don't think she ever finished a unit in a week. She did not finish the guide by the end of tha...

Re: Thoughts on My Book House?

We bought the My Bookhouse set and enjoyed the first several books in the set! We only made it through the younger part of the set, as our children preferred reading individual chapter books by the time they were older. I don't remember anything questionable, but it is easy to preview and skip any s...
