I've been thinking about next year for my daughter's 8th grade and my sons prek. I'm horrible with piecing together things and keeping up the scheduling my daughter needs. My son should be pretty easy, but my daughter, she is tough. The first four years we started homeschooling we used a package curriculum, my daughter loved it. She loved the schedule and knowing when and what she will be doing. Well during the fourth grade year the curriculum let me down, let her down, and we started looking for pieces that we could do to make our curriculum. Well fifth grade didn't go well, sixth grade was better, but still not working. Again this year for seventh grade, things work but things don't.
Sonlight History - Sort of works
Sonlight readers with Lightning literature - Sort of works, maybe a little too much reading.
Mr Q's Advanced Chemistry - Did not work out
Great Science Adventures: Discovering Atoms, Molecules, and Matter - Works wonderfully
Essentials in Writing grade 7 - Sort of workds
Life of Fred Pre Algebra 1 and 2 with Lial's PreAlgebra - Did not work
Saxon 8/7 - Works wonderfully
Winston Grammar - Works
All About Spelling - Works
I'm just afraid to do this all over again next year and I have no idea what I would put in for History, Literature and composition, and Science. Then having to schedule it out. Then adding in my son's stuff.
I've looked at different things Calvert, Sonlight again (used secular), or Oakmeadow, just to make things more simple for me. I just don't know anymore.
