    Default Next year...

    Has anyone starting thinking about what they will be using for next year? If they are planning to homeschool again or not?

    We are going back to mainstream public school.

    This year has been really hard on my family (especially with extended family creating outside stress for me-- unrelated to school) and, though we have made leaps and bounds with Jacob's academic skills, he and I do not work well together.

    It's been a positive experience overall, I think. I am glad to have tried it and have much more respect for those who are disciplined enough to have more success than I at it.

    Aww, I am sorry that everything did not work out. I am sure it will go well in Public school as well.

    We are homeschooling again. I will be using mostly Abeka with a few other things supplemented in.

    Hi Nell! I'm sorry you've been having a rough time. I know you have your work cut out for you.

    I understand the part where you say "he and I do not work well together". That was true with my son too. But we did work well on many other things, just not on a regular schedule of academic things. He was self motivated though, so things worked out.

    I've been researching a little bit. So far I know I'm using Life with Fred for Math, and supplementing with drills and computer games. For handwriting I think I'll stick with Abeka. Someone passed on a cursive writing tablet, it's halfway used up but it gave us a chance to test it out and Jacob loves it. We also plan on reading as much as possible!As far as everything else, no idea!

    Because we have been moving so slowly this year, and we are working with grade one books anyhow, we still have a very large portion of math and english books left. I will be adding in some other things, DH wants to teach him circuitry and we are going to start teaching guitar, going to have to find something to do for PE also. I am switching up science (I told DH we shouldn't have bought the books online) because the science books we had this year seemed so skimpy, we only do it three time a week, and DS watches so many science shows he already knows whats in the book.
    I am also thinking about joining a co-op, but haven't decided yet....

    Sounds like a good plan.

    I think you read my mind! I homeschooled our daughter this year for the first time, she is in first grade... things went okay, but I really felt like I didn't do a good enough job, or just wasn't as into it as other moms in my homeschool group. I was pg for most of the yr and not a HUGE fan of our curriculum... but my biggest struggle next year is my son. He will start kgarten and is VERY hyper, loud and doesn't really follow my directions well but listens to his preschool teachers just fine. So I can't help but wonder if I'm not the best teacher for him. I'm so sick and torn over what to do next year. Sorry don't want to hijack your post..
