Hi! I'm Jillianne. I belong to the Feb 12 PR and I have a 5 year old son in kindergarten. He has ADHD and anxiety and is not doing well in public school. He learned to read when he was 4 and is now onto small chapter books and his school doesn't really have anything to offer in terms of gifted students. When he is finished early they tell him to twirl his thumbs until everyone else finishes So DH and I decided that homeschooling him might be in his best interest until elementary school is out of the way and we can send him to the local charter school. So do you have any suggestions on where I can find an AIO curriculum that wont cost me an arm and a leg? I did find one for free. Easy Peasy homeschooling but it is reliable? i think id prefer workbooks and printable materials instead of setting him up the the computer, though he would enjoy it . Any help would be greatly appreciated! thanks!
Welcome!! There are lots of AIO curriculum options out there... some cost more than others. There are great online or video options, and there are combinations. The first year, it's easy to start with an AIO curriculum to give yourself confidence, but you'll probably find that you replace some or all of it with a hodge-podge of options in the future. The reason is that all kids have strengths and weaknesses, all kids have various interests, and all kids have their own learning style. Worksheets are easy for teachers, but some kids just don't do well with them. They learn what they need to fill in the blanks but can't apply it to life concepts, or whatever. Personally, I love worksheets! That's just my learning style.
Ok... so are you on a tight budget, do you have a preference for Christian or secular, do you have any subjects that are mandated by the state other than reading & math (things like geography or health)?
I'll list a few publishers below so you can start looking through them to get a feel for what you might like:
