I chose to remove the binding from my Beyond guide this year. This is totally unnecessary. The teacher guide is great as is. I am running two HOD guides this year, however, and think it's easier to manage both guides if they are all in one place. I shared how I do this by removing parts of the guide and placing it in my teacher binder. Last year I chose to spiral bind my book. I still like that option if you are only running one guide.
Beyond doesn't require much organization, but I have added a few things. On the right: I made scripture memory sheets that I printed 2 to a page, so that I could put them in a small Better Binder. Last year I used separate composition books for grammar, and spelling. This year I bought a 5 subject composition book, so that I could include all subjects. The sections in the composition book will be: grammar, writing, spelling, narration, and math (Life of Fred.)
It worked well for us to have almost everything we needed for the year in one place. I've organized the student binder much the same as last year. At the beginning of each week I take out the pages that will be used and put them all on a clip board. These binders are too big to work out of, but they make a nice place to store everything in one place.
The first section has history notebooking pages that I found on the HOD Yahoo group. They can also be found on the HOD Beyond Facebook page.
Next I added the science explorations pages I also found in the same place as the sheets above.
Silas will continue poetry copywork as he did last year in Bigger. I love the illustrations both boys did or each poem :)
We worked on cursive last year in Bigger. I made these NIV Bible verse copywork pages, so he could continue in that skill.
The next section is our timeline.
I included a printable helps section as well. I have made a lot of sweet HOD friends along the way. One of them shared some of her had work for Beyond with me. I am so thankful!
I printed and laminated the How to Narrate student list from the appendix of Bigger last year. I can't remember if this is in the Beyond guide or not.
I made a book of poetry for Silas, so that he would have his own copy. I removed the poetry section from the guide to put in my teacher binder, so that I have a copy as well.
That about covers it! I will be working on a post for Creation to Christ as well. Please let me know if I can help in any way :)
