I have two 7th graders AND it will be my first year homeschooling! I am wondering if it might be a good way to ease into this? Thank you for any help/advice!

Pros:  no planning needed, kids can do as much as they want that day, it gets into details on how to do things or what they are teaching, all computers, no extra work needed, normally doesnt take that long to finish, you have a parent's section they can not get into where you can see what is being done, possible grading, and you can set their schedules (what they learn certain days of the week, if you want to skip an entire lesson or even add a lesson)

Cons:  ALOT OF READING, if you computer goes out, what will you teach with????

 

OVERALL:  I love SOS and would recommend it to anyone.  We used it last yr and it was amazing.  The cost isnt nearly as bad as some full curriculums.  this yr we just decided to do unit studies.  we are teaching 4 kids 4 different ages, so this works for us!  GOOD LUCK and have fun with it.

as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD
