Quit homeschool this year...thinking might go back to it next year....advice?
We started homeschooling my oldest last spring....did the last part of 1st grade at home and then started 2nd grade. I also have a 5 year old (who is just now starting to do some K work) and a 1 year old. We had also just relocated to a new area, moved twice between apartment and house and yes....I bought the WRONG curriculum for my kid and me. So we quit and I put my son back in public school. He is doing well, and his teacher says he's brilliant, but they move soooo slow for him. And well, there's some rif raff I'd prefer to keep him away from.
So we are thinking of doing homeschool next year and giving it a more well prepared, whole hearted go at it. Life is much more settled sine moving and my youngest is a little easier to deal wtih as she gets older.
How do I use the time between now and summer to prepare? We used Bob Jones curriculum videos and my son hated it. He likes workbooks and me to explain things. I'm thinking either A.C.E or Alpha Omega Lifepacs might do well for him and give us time to explore extra science things he's interested in.
Any suggestiosn on those curriculums or how to prepare for next year?
