Re: Please pray for my family!

Praying for you since I read this last night and will continue to do so every time God places thoughts of you in my mind. I am so sorry that you and your family have to endure this. I pray that the power of God would give you strength to carry on, that you feel the comfort of our Lord and Savior sur...

Re: Switching Curriculum in November & Phonics Question

I switched in February of 2013. I had previously used another curriculum the year before with my older two. My youngest was beginning kinder, and if she wasn't so adamant about starting, I might have waited since kinder is not required. I could of used what was being offered for kinder from the othe...

Re: Week in Review: August 4-8

This was our first week back and it went so wonderfully beyond my imagination. My son, who rarely has anything good to say about school, actually said it felt good to get back to the business of learning. It makes him feel professional. My children were complaining about the books I selected for DIT...

Re: How to Use DITHOR With a Dyslexic

Hi, my dd10 has a reading disability and it's look to be dyslexia, but we haven't had her tested specifically for it. We started Bigger in the Feb. with the intention of doing Right Brain Phonics by Diana Craft and the Emergent reader for my younger two. When she saw what my other two were reading f...

My Non-Readers are reading!

Back in November I put to paper this prayer request: Have all my children reading chapter books by the end of the year. I am not going to lie. I knew exactly where my kids where in their reading and I thought it was a long shot. When we made the change to HOD in February. My children rarely read on ...

Re: Can I get any tips on "Vocabulary" in Bigger?

I can completely relate. We just started HOD Bigger in Feb. My dd10 disliked vocabulary day and made a big scene every time that day came along. So I sat down with her and discussed the things she liked about school and didn't according to a article I read on hiphomeschoolmom.com. She likes everythi...

Re: 1A or 1B? dd 10 learning issues with math

The best advice that I've been given, is to sit with him and help him with whatever it is he needs help with. It's amazing how this works. I think kids naturally want to be independent. When they completely understand and feel confident in what they are doing, they will tell you to go away and that...

1A or 1B? dd 10 learning issues with math

Just wondering what you would do... My dd scored an 86 on the 1A Singapore Placement Test. I know it said if they scored 80% or better they could move onto the next level, but it also said if they got most of certain type of problem wrong to consider doing that level anyway. She missed the subtracti...
