Flip to Fun-Schooling for High School using the Thinking Tree!!!

I'm so excited my daughter Annette is flipping to Fun-Schooling using the Thinking Tree journals and books.

She has picked some of the more supplemental journals to use with Heart of Dakota. Right now she's still finishing some subjects from Hearts Through Him High School: World History. Once done which she estimates around CHRISTmas time she'll move onto U.S. History 1 also from Heart of Dakota.

Annette has picked out several but for this post I'll concentrate with the one she's using most right now. Once she starts U.S. History 1 she might not use the 10 Subject Portfolio very much. The reason she picked it for now is she LOVES the history pages. We are praying that Sarah will create the History Handbook and Portfolio which will be similar to the Science Handbook and Portfolio by the time she starts U.S. History 1.

What she is doing is loosely using the Heart of Dakota schedule. She reads the through People, Places, & Events World History text and because Annette is a what I call "digger" because she loves to dig deeper in her studies she reads from, From Adam to Us or the Mystery of History series. Now my younger boys, they (at their ages now, 16, 15, 13, & 12) just read the text, hurry and write something and move on (sad I know, sniff, sniff).

In fact I originally purchased the Portfolios for my boys but because they are "hurry-ers" ~ meaning they just want to get it done they work better using the Curriculum Journals.

Hey, that picture of the lady below looks familiar, bwahahaha. Funny. I looked at it and thought, hey, that looks like Hillary Clinton. I think it's great that Annette was listening to what Mrs. Hillary, President Obama, and President Elect Donald Trump were saying after the election and recorded it in her portfolio.

Annette loves the Who? What? When? Where? pages and has almost completed all the History pages in this portfolio so she may use the pages from the Business & Technology section or another section within the portfolio to complete the rest of her World History studies.

 She is also using the Literature section. Sometimes she'll do a character study or a character comparison. Other times she'll write a written narration. Then again she'll answer questions from her Heart of Dakota program but answer in written format instead of directly answering the question.

 I love how she has really made this work for her. She takes her time writing and illustrating what she has learned.

This is one way we are using the Thinking Tree's 10 Subject Portfolio with a high schooler. The 10 Subject Portfolio was originally created for the younger students (but all ages/grades can use it). Annette chose this one over the 12 Subject Portfolio because she noticed it has more History pages.

  1. Great post! I wish I could get this opportunity. I love all the resources and tips you have shared. I would love to implement this but unfortunately my son is enrolled with an online high school. Everything is online there and support staff is also available to help him. I and my wife have nothing to do. Thanks!
