I pulled my 6th grader from PS a few weeks ago. Since then she has just been foing Math on T4L and reading a few good books. I am wanting to gather some good info on HS for next year. I was thinking of doing a few unit studies, she is interested in learning about the Holocaust and wants to read The Diary of Anne Frank and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. Thinking of using those for history, vocabulary abd maybe even learning a bit of both the German and Hebrew languages and the cultures etc. I am kind of stuck for Math with her, she is very behind and is a 100% visual learner. T4L is good but I do not feel it will cover enough and may be a bit on the immature level for her. She is still stuck on many basics like multiplication and division, but gets many algebaic concepts. I would like to keep her in the 6th grade Math even though she is technically going into 7th grade. Also, looking for some good Science, mostly interested in Astronomy and Biology.
