Curriculum suggestions, all subjects (also thinking of Calvert)
I am thinking of using Calvert for my daughters, but am also considering other curriculums and mixing and matching.
My eldest is almost 8 and in 2nd grade. In public school she is doing well in math and science but struggling with phonics and spelling. She does okay with reading and comprehension at home, but struggles with it at school because she cannot take her time and gets nervous, I think if she stays in public school she is in danger of failing on these subjects, but I feel she will be able to "catch up" if she can learn at home.
My youngest school age child is 6 and in kindergarten (her birthday is in October, so she missed the cut off for k last year), but above grade level in all areas, especially in math, I worked with her on k subjects at home last year. I am thinking of moving her up to 1st grade level.
Does anyone have experience with Calvert? What is their math like? Would you do the Calvert math option or the math in focus option?
If you do not use Calvert, What would be your curriculum suggestions?
