What is the general census on it? We will be starting next year, I will be teaching two kids a preschooler and a first grader. I have been searching for a full curriculum and daily lesson plans. To at least give us a good start. This will be our first year homeschooling. So we need a good and easy curriculum. TIA

Also we don't mind faith based curriculums, but don't want one that is completely read this scripture or that scripture. We are spritual but not fully organized religion.

We used it for 2nd grade. By the third week my son hated it. He was bored to tears. We use Abeka and he likes it much better.

Is it just not good material? My son is very bright and has ADHD. Routine is great but we need something to challenge him.

The material was fine, in my opinion. He didn't like the science, it was all one topic and he needs variety. He actually did like history, Story of the World, I think. Math and language arts just kind of jumped around. He couldn't get one concept before they moved into something else. I have heard good things, but for us, it just wasn't a good fit. Sometimes it takes awhile to find what works and what doesn't.

I understand. We just want a good base start.

I understand. It took us awhile to figure out what we needed.

It is a tad overwhelming. That's why we are hoping to have our first year a print this daily type thing

It can be so overwhelming. When I received our books from Abeka, I opened the boxes and then closed them back up and asked myself "what did I do?!" Lol. It gets easier.

Lol. Oh my. We are in virtual school right now. It's okay but I want more flexibility in learning and if we need a break not be tied down.

We did the virtual school for the first couple of years. But it was too much. I didn't like the sitting at the computer all day and not being able to work at his pace.
