For medical reasons, I'm pulling my oldest daughter out of her school. Her health issues make her miss 2-3 days a week of school.
Education has always been one of my top concerns with ny kids and I think I've over reasearche'd homeschool at this point, because boy am I overwhelmed, with no idea what to do.
She'll be going into first grade next year. I wanted to find a curriculum for all subjects until I get my footing, but I'm noticing she knows most first grade curriculum I've found. But then I worry, second grade would be too far of a jump for her. So I'm not sure if I should get the first grade, knowing we'll be reviewing most of the material, just to make sure she's prepared, or go ahead with the second? Cost is a factor in that decision I'll admit, because I'm a single mom (though her sister is 15 months younger than her and I figure I can reuse the curriculum).
I've been looking at building my own curriculum and have been going over her projects/report cards from school to get any idea of what should be taught next. But at the same time, I'm not sure what the text steps typically are in each subject.
Any help for me? I obviously have no idea what I'm doing! lol.
