I really love their website but even in the few short days that we have been homeschooling I can see some adjustments that need to be made for us.
We don't use the History portion as we are focusing on European history while we are still in Germany. Science is ok and they seem to like that...but I wish that it were easier to see what materials will be needed for the experiments before we start the lesson. I wasn't able to have them do the lesson today because I didn't have everything. They really like the Language Arts and the LA Extensions which is good but the Math, which they originally liked they are now not so in to. It is dragging for them.
When we signed up I had no idea about anything for homeschooling and signed up for Time4Learning as a core curriculum. I am thinking about using it just as a supplement now. Would it make sense to buy some of the Comprehensive Curriculum workbooks at our bookstore here to see if they like the workbook version better before investing in a more expensive curriculum?
I am amazed at how different my boys learn from eachother and am learning what works and what doesn't right now. I think by having an ecclectic approach to learning it will be easier to change things up when I notice something isn't working for one of them.
Anyone use a variety of curriculum or teaching styles? Is it harder to keep records that way?
