I am recently considering homeschooling my 10 yr old daughter. She is having a very rough time keeping up in school. She's in 5th grade currently but i'm actually questioning if she really even passed 4th. With the grades that came home last yr I really don't see how it's possible. But, they say she did.
My dd has tourettes and is also being evaluated for ADD. I feel like she needs more one on one than the school can provide and I also know that she struggles with reading comprehension. She is a very hands on learner and does much better when touching and seeing rather than reading.
So my questions are:
If I pull her out now can I just have her take it easy for a bit and ease into her. Give her time to "unschool" . I'm thinking things like cooking would be a nice start - using fractions, doubling recipes (multiplying fractions). Or do I have to get her on a strict schedule and curriclum right away?
I'm in NJ and from what I see there really aren't too many strict curriculum guidelines.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
