New to homeschooling... need curriculum advice....

Postby nmmiller79 » Tue Feb 19, 2013 4:26 pm

Hi All,

Well we are new to homeschooling.... I have an almost 8 year old (2nd grade level) and a 10 yr old (4th grade).

We recently removed them from public school and are beginning the homeschooling process. I'm leaning more towards the "unschooling" ways, but I want to make sure they have the basics first.

I can't seem to find my way to the best curriculum to use for the basics for them. Looking mainly at Math and Reading/Spelling/Grammar. The 2nd grader needs help in all of these areas - mostly because she "doesn't like" to do it. Not that she can't. The 4th grader is more advanced (on the last Harry Potter book & was starting Algebra in school). So I need things that will challenge her.

We're moving off grid to a VERY remote location, so my resource opportunities are a little more limited than most. Can anyone suggest what curriculum you think might be best for these areas?

The other areas we are going to attack as we go - as in - if they want to learn about weather - that's what we'll study. The 10 year old loves Ancient Egypt - so we'll probably start there for our History lessons.

Any suggestions are very welcome!

Thanks!
Nicole

I tend to think that less is more, sometimes. I am not too familiar with Risas y Sonrisas program, but I intend to check it out as I am constantly looking for programs and ways to help keep the kids interest in Spanish up.

Postby mathias12 » Fri Feb 06, 2015 11:32 am

i am new to this home schooling thing.
i am a mom of 2 boys 2 years old and almost 1 year old.

how do i sit down with my 2 year old and teach him the basics of the preschool. so that when he go to a preschool then he will be ready?

then after both of my boys are out of preschool i want to homeschool them.
any ideas on what curriculum to use or what i should do at the age that my boys are at?
