  1. It absolutely does. Some days I actually wish my kids were less independent. It's bittersweet. I know it's good for them but I miss the younger years. Could you make a grid for them like MFW uses and print that out for them to read like a guide? Then they could be independent with whatever you use. Personally, I would be concerned that HOD might be too much with CC. We've never done CC, though, so i could be wrong.
  2. Are you referring to revtorev? RtR is resurrection to reformation. Just wanted to clarify before answering. We've loved using HOD. I'm really seeing how beneficial the increasing independence is in each guide.
  3. Are these still the editions that are being recommended? It looks like the online class is now using the 9th edition.
  4. We switched after 4th grade and it has gone well. We'll be doing the same with our daughter this coming year. There was an adjustment period though, and for that reason, I'm glad we did it earlier rather than later.
  5. I seem to keep hearing that about the Mr. Pipes book. Thanks. 😌
  6. Which ones would you skip and which would you not want to miss?
  7. After finishing horizons grade 4 math, my children tested into Saxon 7/6. Make sure when you finish horizons 3 you take the Saxon placement test.
  8. Thank you all so much for taking the time to add your input! I don't usually 'like' every single reply in a thread, but in this case every one of your responses were truly helpful. We will be mulling it over and checking into things before making a decision in April.
  9. Does anyone on here have experience with a charter school that pays for your curriculum and extracurricular activities, but you still home school your child... AT HOME? There is a new one starting up in our town and though it sounds like a good idea, we just can't find peace about joining. The pros on our list are more than the cons... still it just feels like a bad idea. I'm hoping to find people that have actually used one of these charter type schools, to tell me what the positives and negatives you found were. Or people who haven't used them, and why.
  10. Thank you all for your time and input. After reading the responses and knowing our son will go on to do more foreign language in the future, I am not going to do anything except keep plugging away at Latin. I'm not concerned at this point with whether or not FFL is worth a half credit, whole credit, or no credit at all. I was just confused as to how to go about awarding credit if it was worth one. It seems that it is pretty much up to the parents discretion as to award or not to award credit as long as it fits into the requirements for their state. I will try to research more on how this works

  12. I was recently informed and then read on the Memoria Press website that First Form Latin is worth 1 high school credit. Our 5th grade son is doing this program this year and we would love for him to be able to obtain this credit officially if possible. How do we go about doing this? Has anyone done it for a child that isn't yet in high school? This question has been posted in the K-8 board as well. I wasn't sure where to ask.
