5th grade(11 years old) and 8th grade (13 years old) two preschoolers usually work with the 5th and 8th grade.
Do you want history or social studies?
I personally think that there's a bit too much of an age gap between all your children to, at this point, be combining subjects; your 8th grader needs to be prepping for high school but your fifth grader won't have the stamina to keep up with a program suitable for your 8th grader - and preschoolers certainly won't be able to keep up.
If you're looking for history, what is your sequence?
Your 8th grader could do Oak Meadow Civics fairly independently; then you could work with your fifth grader through Story of the World (and your preschoolers would just float in and out listening and gaining exposure just by "being there").
I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we have traditional gender roles, we're Catholic, I'm Libertarian, he's Republican, we're both conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol). Aimee
