Little Hearts: Difference in updated guide?

Can someone tell me the difference between the 2007 version of Little Hearts and the 2013 guide?
I am so excited to have just gotten my Little Hearts kit in the mail!! But what I want to do is buy a second guide used to cut the spine off of and cut into packets so I can have each unit stapled together and be light and portable. I don't really want to cut up my new one. I found a used one for cheap, but it has a 2007 copyright. Would it be difficult to use all my 2015 materials with this older guide?
Thanks for your help!

The main difference is the h box,. What is written in the 3007 (and earlier) versions goes with a workbook that is no longer available. So Carrie had to totally rewrite that box. She also updated the 1st grade FMS since Rod and Staff came out with another workbook (J).
I think those are the two changes from 2007 to 2013. Earlier editions of the guide I think have a different FMS completely for 1st grade, again something that is out of print. And, one of the storytime books changed early on, for reasons I am not sure of.

This could maybe work then, since i am using LHFHG for Kindergarten, so I don't have to worry about the 1st grade changes. Also, I think there's a file on the FB page that shows the history page changes?

Could Carrie or Julie confirm this info for me, please? :)
Thank you ladies!!

Is the math the same? I don't know what year the K math was changed...

I have the original book (2004) and am switching my 7 year old back down from Beyond to it. I looked at the PDF file for LHFHG and the sample is the same as my book (I was hoping to see the differences). Do I just get the 1st grade workbook suggested now and add it in as best I can? I have all the original books I got way back when I got it so have everything for it except the workbook stuff.

The math activities have changed because the math workbooks they used to use are out of print. The sample on the web is still the old one, I'm pretty sure anyway.

Oh no!! So disappointing! I was looking forward to the math activities. I just realized that the online sample is not the same as what's in the new book. :( I found that on the FB group, someone went through and matched up many of the activities from the old guide to the new math books. Is there any way to get hold of the old activities??

Ummm...why do you want the old activities? Aren't there new activities that match up with the new book? (I have the old book, but we do another math so I do only some of the activities for math)

Also could you pm me the name of that facebook group?

rumkimom--there are some new activities, but many times the math box just says "do such and such page in the math book". I will pm you too!

I would really like to see where someone matched up the math activities for the new math workbooks too. What Facebook group was that in? Thank you.
