  1. Hello Ladies, I'm wondering about the outlining in Heart of Dakota. I know there isn't a lot required. It's taught in Rod and Staff, but I don't see it being applied. Am I missing something? Does it come later in the High School guides? If not, how have you been able to incorporate it into your students day? Thanks :)
  2. We are currently using MFW. It's going "OK". It's getting done, but that's about it. I'm looking at switching (to something - doesn't have to be HOD...but HOD is sticking out to me right now, along with TOG), and here are some reasons why: My senior is finishing up WHL - should be done in Dec. He has done AHL and now WHL. From the very beginning (and I'm still there), I have felt absolutely lost when it comes to the parent conferences. I think this is a "user" issue because other parents don't seem to have this issue. I have no idea what to discuss or how because I don't have time to read thr
  3. This was my 2nd week with using 6 HOD Guides although I only blogged about 5. I thought those of you interested in HOD might like to take a peek. http://training6hearts4him.blogspot.com/2014/09/heart-of-dakota-homeschool-2nd-week.html
  4. Anything? DD will be 4 in September. She knows a lot of the preschool stuff already but isn't ready for K stuff yet maturity and attention span wise. She knows all the capital and lowercase letters and their primary sounds, can count to about 16 (rote and objects), can add objects, knows colors, shapes, can sort by size and weight, has an extensive vocabulary, decent fine motor skills, can write her name,... I like the organized layout of LHTH but I don't want her to be bored with "school". I want this to be a good "intro to school year" that's fun... but I'd like to know she was g
  5. Has anyone used MOH Vol. 1 as the reader for CtC? I love HOD and have access to a free guide. I don't like how CtC does not incorporate civilizations outside of Egypt, Greece, and Rome very much. Ok, I will admit it. I really want to use the notebook!:drool: I think the science looks well done, as well. Oh, and I can use MOH for activity ideas for my first grader. :bigear:
  6. Our new year starts soon and I am seeking guidance. I was all ready to use Memoria Press complete curriculum, until I went over our various options with dh today. His vote is for Heart of Dakota because it is all planned out and it appears the children will be doing a variety of activities throughout their days and the year. It looks like a great program, but I am so hesitant as I wonder if the program will be a challenge to adapt. Here are my questions: 1. Is providential history a main theme throughout the various levels? If yes, would it be possible to avoid that content? 2. If th
  7. Hello :) DD will be 8 yrs old. She is a very advanced reader & we have been using Beyond this year for Bible, History, Poetry & Storytime. We found lots of Beyond quite basic and simple for her - I made her write up an answer each day for Bible questions and added in loads of books. She reads at a level and pace of like a Famous Five Book a day! Bigger looks like there are loads of good reading books and I have looked at SL Core D and will take books from there and add in too, just to keep up with her reading. I would like more writing activities to go with the storytime
  8. I haven't seen either of these in person. I'm trying to find a curriculum that is not too time-intensive for a 2.5 - 3 year old (starting this fall/winter). I really would like something more scheduled. It appears that HOD Little Hands to Heaven seems to be the most scheduled out of the three. However, I do enjoy reading to my kids and we enjoy lots of good books. I've not used HOD, Sonlight, or FIAR before so all are new. Looking for Pros/Cons of each and which is most recommended for a 2.5/3 year old?
  9. My daughter did IEW Bible Theme book in a co-op this year and learned a lot. In the past she really struggled with writing but she had a breakthrough year. Next year she is not participating in this co-op and her homeschool program, Heart of Dakota is scheduling in Essentials in Writing: Grade 10 for the area of composition. (I linked to HOD's discussion on this program choice) I am really torn if I should have her do this program or have her continue with IEW. If we decide to go with IEW, I wouldn't have a clue what I should get for her because I didn't teach it to her. Any advice?
  10. I've posted on here before and finally decided to try Bigger with my just turned 8 yr old (2nd grade) and LHFHG with my K'er. Much of Little Hearts is too easy for my 5 yr old ... so, I've been using the right side of Beyond and the left side of LHFHG for her and Bigger straight through for my 8 yr old. My 8 yr old is struggling with the amount of writing involved in all the notebooking. He has just learned to read (1st grade level) and is still slower to write ... he doesn't enjoy writing, either. He prefers oral narrations and read-alouds. He learns with this method ... he also loves ma
  11. I'm considering purchasing the HOD Bigger program and wondering what extra items will need to be purchased? I saw mention of a globe and index cards and binders? Is there a list in the curriculum they provide so I can be prepared in advance? Reading between the lines this means I bought it last night and want to go shopping for all the extras today while hubby watches football LOL. Any assistance in fueling my need for instant gratification would be much appreciated!
  12. I am breaking up my questions from my previous post Overview of World History + Geography... I like Heart of Dakota's Preparing Hearts but the ages of my kids aren't in their "range". It will be for a 2nd grader 7/8 year old, 1st grader 6/7 year old, and then 4K. Has anyone used PHFHG specifically for the history/bible? Would it be worth it with the ages or would it be too much? Has anyone had experience using the guide they want for the history readings not using the age/skills range? I don't expect to use the whole guide but wonder if it would be nice to use for the
  13. My DD is 5 yr old and finished our "K" curriculum in November and we are starting our new year now ... we started with LHFHG yesterday and I'm very pleased with the layout and love how it tells what to do, etc. It is perfect for us. The left side of the page is perfect for my 5 yr old ... absolutely perfect. The right side is way way too easy. She begs to do more work. I pulled out Beyond and started using the right side of Beyond mixed with the left side of Little Hearts for her. She does the spelling list 1, the emerging reading, the Singapore Math 1 ... and it all seems sort of easy f
  14. I made these Godly character traits cards to correlate with our HOD units. Each week in HOD Bigger Hearts we cover one trait, and have a Proverbs memory verse. Even if you don't use HOD, you may find a use for these. Thought I'd share :) http://www.monarchroom.com/2012/08/heart-of-dakota-character-cards-bigger.html
  15. I highlighted my questions in purple to make skimming easier, in hope for a response. Does BP Yr 2 collate Bible readings with history, or is it beyond Bible times chronologically by then? I already own SOTW 2, various encyclopedias & time line reference books rec'd in WTM logic stage, the History Lives Chronicles series (Peril & Peace, Monks & Mystics...), Trial & Triumph, VP cards, K12 HO, and Streams of Civilization (but only vol. 1 - haven't looked to see if that goes into Middle Ages). Obviously I wouldn't use all of these things at once; I'd have to choose. I
  16. I blogged about our first WWTB writing assignment today as we wrapped up the unit as well as the first several watercolor paintings! I know many like to see a little sample to see what's to come :) http://www.thomasschooldays.blogspot.com
  17. I have a question.:001_smile: If I was to use Bigger as my program but include the Read Alouds from Beyond, has anyone done that b4? We are not American, but after seeing the programs I am really keen and excited about learning about American history. - has anyone taken a list from the REad Aloud books/main history texts in Beyond and worked out where in Bigger they would fit into timeline wise? I have no clue looking at the names as we know NOTHING about American famous people from history nor what time periods they would fit into, but perhaps someone how is familiar with the people
  18. We are doing HOD’s Beyond this year and would like to do Bigger next year. I like almost everything about the program except the science. My daughters frequently look at me and ask “Is that it?†I feel the same way. We do not like God’s Wonderful Works. If I don’t like the science in Beyond will I like Bigger any better? Is the science section meatier in the Bigger guide? Are the science books any better?
  19. HI there, I listed these questions on HOD's message board but also wanted to ask them here. I have a few questions about Bigger Hearts.... We are considering this program. 1) Does everyone get their kids to do cursive? If so, when do you know it is the right time to move ahead and start? If you don't, do you ever intend to or not? 2) Does HOD in its future courses do Art from a Christian perspective or is it always tied in with history? 3) How does geography progress into the courses. I see it is touched upon in Bigger...I just wondered if anymore time is given to say s
  20. Hi there HOD users, Just figuring this out: 1. The Books listed in the Emerging Readers lists and the DIPTHR books are independent reading and the book list (like the Classic lists/girls interest) are they read alouds? 2. When they say Read Aloud - is this the parent reading aloud to the child, or the child reading aloud to the parent? 3. Also is the independent readers ever reading aloud to the parent? Thanks :001_smile: Sherid
  21. A few weeks or a month ago, I commented on a HOD thread that I didn't really care for the programs before Beyond (I had owned the guide at one time but didn't use it). Well, I'm here to update you all. I'll be starting Little Hearts on Monday with Lance :tongue_smilie:. I'm finding for my little guy that although Beyond was okay in the history and science department, his writing is not. He hasn't done any of the copywork so far. My main concern was having him start Bigger next school year and it being too difficult and frustrating for him. Now that I have the guide in front of me (agai
  22. I feel like the bulk of the program (besides doing 3 Rs ofcourse) is the activity box and we are not crazy about the activities in the younger guides. In other words the left side of the guide reading is very minimal (short) and then you have the activities. From bigger on up do the activities get better? If you weren't crazy about the activities in the lower guides did you change them or add different ones inorder to stay with HOD?
  23. I'm looking for the teacher's guide and any books that go with this. You can email me at populatingdakota@hotmail.com Thanks! Susanna
  24. I am on page 28 of the majorly long thread of 27 Reasons Not to Buy HOD. So, who is using it? I do have a few questions. I'm looking at this for next school year. As much as I don't want to use two guides, it looks like that's what I'll be doing (if I go this route):tongue_smilie:. Annette, Caleb and Brent in Ctc and Ethan and Lance in Bigger. Two guides seem overwhelming to me (I know some use 2 or 3 guides). Here are my concerns; I'll have two history periods going at once as well as Bible. I'm not sure if I can manage that. Especially with my two middle boys who are not
  25. From looking at the website, I am very interested in this for my 6th grader next year. Would you care to share your experiences with me? I haven't quite figured out yet what is included in the program and what I would still need to buy for? Thanks:001_smile:
