I had high hopes of combing my kids next yesr, but I am not sure it would be best for them...easier on me, maybe...and easier on my tight budget. If I DO combine them, I have NO idea with what curriculum. I have a DS who will be 5 in July. He is a grade+ ahead in LA and Math, but still on par eveywhere else. In general, he is a bright kid. He isn't overly fond of read-alouds but LOVES workbooks. He could do without arts and crafts but loves building things, putting things together, etc... DD is 11 months younger. She will be 4 in June. She is just starting to blend letters into words, but in all honesty, she is going to do better with a phonics/sight word combo. She is counting and understands one to one correspondance. She HATES workbooks. She hides under the bed when I pull out Rod and Staff ABC books. She loves read-alouds and narrates them back very well for her age. She loves crafts and activities,
What would you do? I want them to both be well rounded, so in that respect combining them in everything but math and LA seems wise...but I just don't know.
