Hi everyone, I am new to the group *waves* Anyway, I have a question or two if you wouldn't mind answering :)
My son is 3, and I am wanting to homeschool. I don't like the public school system and the private school here is not the best either. So anyways, I have NO IDEA where to start! I know it is still early, but was wondering, what kinda of cirruclum do you use? I am actually looking for the best cheapest one. I have looked at several and they are all pretty darn high (I know I am not going to find it very cheap). I think that is all for now. TIA for answering! :)
Learn what the laws for your stare are first, then learn your child'slearning style both of those will determine what is going to work for him & you. You should be able to find a free curriculum at least for the elementary years!
I don't use one so I am no help on what is good or not!
I use a bunch of different things from various sources. I originally wanted to go with a boxed set but this way is working out better for us. You may need to try a few things before you figure out what works best. Good luck!
I love sing spell read and write for the early years (k,1,2). If you find curriculum swaps and talk to them sometimes they take regular books as well. I had a few things and picked up everything but the workbooks for free. The work books come out to 50 dollars at rainbow resource and I get them this week.
We have a 2 1/2 year old and almost four year old, so right now we're just doing a little circle time (we use the nursery rhyme cd's from Starfall.com for movement and counting songs, then read stories and play with blocks and things). And we have a weekly schedule for crafts/baking, etc.
This fall when DS is four we're going to start using Waldorf Essentials.
edit: sorry, posted too soon, here are some of my favorite sites if you're looking at curriculums :)
