Well- alot of changes this week. My eldest is now 14 and entering her first year of highschool.
She had been homeschooled- unschooled in fact up until Grade 8 when she wanted to try school. We were fortunate to have an excellent teacher and she had a good year. My thoughts were to help her integrate into the school system if that was her choice . She started a mainstream high school this week and so far is enjoying it. I have not met her teachers yet.
Also with the new school year brings more structure for my still homeschooled son. For various reasons I have chosen a more structured approach for him and we are back to doing more “regular” lessons.
Using Singapore Match Curriculum
For math we follow the Singapore Math curriculum and I have really liked it. It is broken down into manageable parts and easy to follow.
Its also affordable. A whole year 4 books costs about 40.00.
This year we are will continue with a homeschool drama group, learning co-op and gym program.
