For those that have withdrawn their munchkins mid year, what did you use to finish off that school year? I understand deschooling, but did you buy any specific books to finish at least math? any other advice on mid year withdrawals? thanks ladies :-)

We were going to homeschool the following year, but my daughter had issues that made us think we needed to pull her right away.    We did suddenly and popped her on Time4Learning.com.    It wasn't great, but we just did that and library trips and such.    Slowly added in some other projects for fun and eventually a better math.

I pulled one out of a brick and mortar PS one December.  I purchased a bunch of addition and subtraction, time and money workbooks to finish out the year in math.  Other than that we just read a lot of books.  Each week we would read a short story, a poem, and either a history story or science book and at least 2 periodicals (highlights, Cricket, National Geographic kids, Humpty Dumpty, something along those lines).  Then I pulled 2 out of K12 in February.  I bought curriculum a tiny bit above grade level and started them off without deschooling because we were homeschooling already.

I did Life of Fred, read books, did science.  I felt a lot of pressure right away to get it "right."  And now I'm realizing that "right" is very subjective and different for everyone.  And possibly I'm not doing it right.  :)

I pulled my older daughter (6th grade ) out in September.  Her last ps day was Thursday.  I let her relax on Friday, then began with regular textbooks on Monday.  Most of those were used from Amazon, and a few from Rainbow.  We worked with the ones that came then added the others as they arrived.

I think it depends on the age/grade.   Even if you do not want to go in for every subject, I would recommend  keeping up on reading, writing and math.

Some type of schedule  (daily routine) would probably be good for you and the child/children.

Hope it goes well.

I never pulled my kids out mid year. However, I know that Math Mammoth and Singapore have their curriculums divided by semesters (A and B). So you might want to look into that for math.
