Hello,
I'm Trish, SAHM to 5. Last year I HSed all 4 ( 5th is 10 months). My oldest 2 will be attending the local high school this year, grades 9 and 11. I am very relieved about that. However my girls will be grades 1 and 4. They had decided they wanted to go to school but now we ( them or I) are not sure. I was looking forward to them going for a couple reasons, the pressure would be off me, sometimes I think I'm not a good HSer, I'm slack. We don't have a schedule. The social aspect, even though I do NOT worry about it, they do socialize, school can be fun.
Now I'm not sure, I love having them home, I love the lack of scheduled events. We're thinking about it, however curriculum is a big concern for me. I'm in Canada, curriculum is harder to come by here. I just got this and that. I want a curriculum that is fairly complete and has lesson plans, I'm not good at all about doing lessons. I need it done. Easy. Mostly for the 4th grader.
Any recommendations?

What is your budget? secular or religious (what religion if so)? how long of days do you want? what do you enjoy doing with the kids outside school? Do you want it to correlated to school grade?

Christian Light Publications and Math Mammoth offer Canadian homeschool curriculum, but they're not free. Are you looking for free curriculum?

Tell us more about what you are looking for in a curriculum so we can help. Do you want something that you will have to piece together or do you want it all together in one box? What did you use previously?

Ok it can be religious or not, Christian. I don't want to spend more then 2-3 hrs of sit down work a day. We enjoy nature activities. We are a busy family with competitive sports. I'd love a all in one set, but don't mind mixing and matching if lessons are done. I'm just not creative or have the energy to put anything together.

Look at moving beyond the pages. You may be able to pick an in between level to do it together and still learn a lot.
