I know what I am doing for math, ancient history, english and spelling next year. (At least I am pretty confident on those) That just leaves science, geography, social studies, american history and handwriting. I am starting early on research so I can buy bits and pieces at a time and not worry about going broke buying curriculum. DS will be in 3rd grade and we went pretty lite on most of those this year. My only real requirement is no religious curriculum. I am mostly wondering about Science, American History and Handwriting. If you have recommendations for the other two I am all ears, but they are lower on my list of priorities right now.
Anyone use R.E.A.L. science? I thought it looked pretty interesting, but not sure how much extra stuff we would need to buy to go with it.
What about Handwriting Without Tears? I wouldn't mind having him start cursive, as he started learning in PreK and still remembers some of it.
Any ideas or recommendations would be appreciated!
