Starting homeschooling in the middle of a school year?
My dd is 13 and in 8th grade and she is really fed up with public school. She was homeschooled in 4th and 5th grade, but then I had to put her back in public school bc I am a single mom and I no longer had a job where I could stay home and teach her and she was not old enough to stay home alone. 6th grade was okay, 7th not as good but tolerable, but this year she just hates school. She hates the other kids who are noisy and always getting into trouble, the cursing, the material that is too easy for her, the teachers who are so impatient with students, just everything.
I had asked her in the past if she wanted to go back to homeschooling and at that time she said no. She was excited about going to high school, and all that goes with it, but now she says she wants to do homeschooling again. I'm thinking of k-12 curriculum but I can't sign her up for that until fall. They apparently won't accept students mid year. So I am thinking of trying to get some homeschool books and just letting her do a potpurri of curriculum materials until the school year ends.
So my questions are 1) Is it a problem to take a student out of public school in the middle of the school year? Will they give me a hard time about that?
2) What curriculum do you all suggest? I have used Abeka for math before and I like it but I don't know if I want to use it for the other subjects. I don't necessarily need all the subjects that they list in their kit either. Math, language arts, science, and social studies are most important. She has already studied PE and health this year. Art and music are not that important right now, I don't think. Bible she gets at church, and I've never found a Bible curriculum that we both like anyway. And foreign language she can do next year. So any recommendations? It doesn't have to be all from the same company. Thanks so much!
