Re: ?? Annotating Fiction

Carrie, regarding the annotating, my dd is going to be in 10th this upcoming school year and is doing the WH literature. Is there a list of those things you just mentioned in the previous thread? A list of possibilities to underline? It seems your list here went into a bit more detail than in the gu...

Re: WG Freak Out

Even though we're doing MtMM (with extensions instead of Storytime) and WG lit for 9th grade, DD14 has pretty much stopped her outside reading as well. The thoughts here really have helped me relax a bit. It makes sense! She read a LOT during her summer vacation. Also, I'll be sure to tell her that ...

Re: Teacher's Book for WG BJU Literature?

We're doing this course right now with our 9th grader. I find the TM invaluable. It would be very difficult for me to pull out everything we need to discuss without the book. On the days when we discuss, I usually read her the questions and we try to answer the questions without looking at the TM to...

Re: HOD Highschool = Prestigious Private School

That is great! And I agree that HOD is thought-provoking and deep. When I needed something different than what we had been using for years, I looked through samples and such, and I wondered if HOD was either of these things. The guide is laid out so simply. I even asked if people thought it was thou...

Re: Rev2Rev - need help w/our 9th grade plans

I had several thoughts as I was reading through your post. If anything, I have a few questions that might help make decisions as well. We will be using MtMM for 9th grade next year, so some decisions will be similar, and I want to tag along on this post to read what others have to say. History: I re...

Re: A little confused about Exploration Education in Rev to

Correct me if I'm wrong, as I need to know too, but I read the Rev to Rev science as 3 days for standard and 5 days for advanced.

Re: Reading Struggles

My dd (now 9) struggles with reading. She is just now moving into the emergent readers slowly, and I've found more readers to put between the Bible reader to give her a break, as the Bible reader we have is challenging. Anyway, I've tried so many different things for this little gal. We started with...

Re: Decided to combine 2 kids - what does your day look like

I have my oldest girls in RtR right now (12 and 11). I will say that I've changed the history section books, but work in the left side assignments with the books I already had from another program and do it HOD-style. We do all of the right side. For what it's worth, we're doing Rev to Rev completel...

Re: I would love to know more about HOD Science

I have just started HOD this year as well with our 11 and 12yo girls. We have used several other sciences, including Apologia, Real Science 4 Kids, and Sonlight science. We are in Res to Ref science now, and my girls have never enjoyed science more, they have never asked more questions, they have ne...

Re: MtMM and Literature for 9th grade

Thanks for the followup! My DD that will use this for 9th grade is dyslexic, and while she reads on grade level, she has to work extra hard to do so. Until this year, I have read all her history, science, and a read aloud to her, while she read mainly historical fiction novels to herself with questi...

Re: MtMM and Literature for 9th grade

So with extensions it is worth 1 credit for literature, as well as 1 credit for history?

Re: MTMM for partial high school credit - our scenerio

Carrie, my state requires 3 lab sciences. Does this lineup you've suggested take care of 3 lab sciences?
