Homeschooling Moms Homeschooling Moms

Using the same curriculum for a different child?

We are new to the homeschooling world (starting this fall) ill have one in 2nd grade and one in kindergarten (also a 2 year old) I'm wondering if I could save their curriculum (copy the pages instead of writing in the books) and use the 2nd graders books for the kindergarten when she gets to 2nd grade? Does that make any sense?!? LOL
Thanks!

You could.

It may or may not work. If your younger child is a completely different learner than your 2nd grader, you may have went to the trouble for nothing.

But if it works, it could pay off big time :)

I just didn't know if the books change yearly? Yes, I would make sure it's something she's ready for :)

Both my girls have the same learning style so I will be using the same material. I am trying to go the rout of work sheets instead of work books. For some reason my girls have started to complain about the work books but not the work sheets...weird.

What do you mean "change yearly"? Like, new editions made yearly? If so, that sometimes happens, but when it does, the changes are often small.

And I didn't necessarily mean that she may not be ready for it, I meant that she may have a different learning style (i.e. "visual" -vs- "auditory" -vs- "kinesthetic", etc).

 I plan on doing that with my younger 2.  They are both fairly kinesthetic learners, so I won't lose much.  My oldest is more visual than the other 2, so his stuff doesn't translate well to them.  He actually likes worksheets.  The other two are all about bouncing, hopping, running, etc.

I am doing that with my kiddos.. I ripped the pages out of our horizons math book, put them all in a binder and slip the page into a page protector for them to do the page with a dry erase marker

 hi cowgirl, i use the same books for my kids, year after year, just sometimes you have to teach it to them differently! depending on what kind of learner they are!

That was my plan! Lol

Thank you everyone! Yes, I didn't know if they came out with new books every year and if they did, didn't know how much of it changed. (Like I have the third edition from BJU, didn't know if next year there'd be a fourth etc)
