I am so excited. I had been looking at Answers in Genesis science for my daughter for next year (will be in 1st grade). She absolutely loves science so I am going to give her lots of science..lol.
Anyway, on Facebook someone was selling the entire set of their science curriculum (grades 1-8) for 185.00 (shipping included). This set usually sells for 300.00. I didn't have 185.00 right now, so I asked her if she would be willing to let me make payments every week until paid for and she agreed. I am so very excited that she agreed.
I believe that I can make this science curriculum stretch for around 4-5 years. It is set up that each set of books (total of 4 sets) is a year's worth.
We use Abeka but when I saw these, I knew my daughter would love them. I also am not real crazy about Abeka's science for younger grades.
I also got 2 books for her history: The Presidents book and the States Book. I was planning on teaching her the states and capitals next year anyway and I had also thought about teaching her the presidents. My plan is to do the states and capitals next year and the presidents the following year. We will do 2 states per week (where they are located, the capital, and what the flag looks like). I paid $ 3.50 for both books, this included shipping!
I am just so excited!!! Now, if I can just wait until she officially starts 1st grade before I dig into them...lol.
