My son is starting pre-k officially this coming fall. I'm not overly worried about his pre-k curriculum as we do a little bit of this and that now and will continue this but:
I would love ideas on curriculum for reading and history that are hyper child friendly. He understands structured learning but chooses not to participate in anything that requires him to sit for more than 30 seconds. I don't want him sitting for long periods, hence the homeschooling, but for at least reading he needs to be able to sit and take directions so he can work on things like letters, handwritting, and of course reading.
My dd uses McRuffy and it works very well for her. The lessons are short, sweet, and to the point. I also have manipulatives that she can use for hands on, flash cards, games, etc
Any ideas on how to start incorperating sit down lessons that he'll actually participate in? I'd like to start working with his sitting down and listening over the next year so when we have to buckle down in the fall of 2014 he'll be ready to do so for at least one subject. Some of this will come with time but some of this will need to come from my teaching style and the curriculum I use for him.
Ideas and curriculum are much appreciated! TIA!
