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

Homeschooling is good when it comes to faster learning at your child's end. If you are a working mom, you cannot perform your duty as a home tutor for your child. My best advice is, better get a private tutor. Just make sure to choose carefully the tutor you are about to select. An updated tutor with the current curriculum is good to have. Also make sure that a tutor can communicate well to your child.
