my daughter to booorrreeeddd with Horizons phonics and reading and with their math as while at the kindergarten level.  I'm looking for something supplement or replace it for the last part of the year.  She needs something more hands on and less worksheet based. 

She enjoys manipulatives, music, apps, writing, and art.  Ideas please.

I looked into math u see,ixl, for math but that sure what to do for phonics and reading.  Also looked into starfall but i don't really want a all computer based curriculum.  FYI we have a mac so somethings are compatiable :(

Thanks in advance! God Bless :D

RRC has several different things for LA...don't know if your looking for something in game-form or not.

For math, have you checked out the living math site? They have so many great titles to consider to help teach math concepts.

We are using all about spelling for spelling/phonics and really like it. Very hands on.

We also just switched to life of Fred math. We were going to use it as a stand alone math, but I don't think it's enough so far so we will keep doing Saxon even though it bores us to death. Saxon is very hands on though, and uses manipulatives a lot.

 what about some lap books, file folders, unit studies and here

for math, have her do it on the chalk board, or on a large piece of paper(she can write it upside down, sideways, etc no one way to do it) answer outloud, time it with a prize at the end,

reading- take turns reading with her, find some books she likes, you can make some booklets for her to read and let her do the drawings, again go to the library see what they have in reading materical for her age

phonics- flashcards(you can make them), make the phonics into games,  or art projects

There is a lot of background noise in this video, but this home school mom  gives you the information you are asking for

Ring Around The Phonics (language arts curriculum disguised as a game)

Living math has been a wonderful resource for us too. My daughter's love of math has soared.
