See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
We use CAVA for my 5 and 6 year olds and I straight homeschool my 2 and 3 year old. But this post is for my 6 year old.
We have to let the teacher test my 6 year old to see if she can move up to 2nd grade math. We finished K12's first grade curriculum in 4 months last year. So I am asking that you lady's pray or send well wishes that she is feeling great and able to concentrate when the teacher tests her. If not she is going to be so disappointed. She really wants to move on in math. It is literally all she has talked about all summer. She was so excited but when we switched schools they said they had to test her and she got really mad and disappointed.
I have to talk to the teacher because a lot of the rules I am reading, like only using k12 materials and having to each on only school days was not on our paper work last year at the smaller school. If that is the case then I am saving up for the curriculum I want next year. Unfortunately it isnt cheap, though I know I could probably do it cheaper, I am afraid to leave already built curriculum. I want Sonlight for most things but Saxon for math. I am still going to teach my own way though.
The teachers probably not going to like it but our life is a school room for the most part. We watch documentaries and the babies watch Nick Jr., sometimes PBS. We learn about our pets and how they would be or were in the past in the wild. We talk about and research things we see on walks and trips. We go to mueseums and aquariums and different places. Everything we do is about enriching our knoweledge and having fun together at the same time. So I know we cant stick to one curriculum.
