We are with a charter. So far we use story of the world (love!) Singapore math, and classical conversations foundations guide, as well as van cleave science experiment books. I also have an eclectic reader for the first grader, but just use the book we have for reading, and i have a cursive book for my boys.
So, our main method is classical, but I think that I do a lot of child led learning as well.
So, what Im wondering is should i get a curriculum spelling and writing as well? I dont want to use only workbooks (the only workbook really is the math and cursive), but maybe i should get some sort of spelling book, although eclectic reader has spelling words. I dont push writing either. I want him to master reading before we focus on writing. When he is in 4th grade is when Im thinking of starting IEW. Are there any curriculum out there that helps prep him for that? What about for my kindergartener? Is there any good curriculum to help with reading? With my oldest I just made my own curriculum (games, puzzles, reading and using the whiteboard)
