Edited to add, I am going to put this on WFMW so that I will have a few more homeschooling mama's stop by. As for my WFMW I do really love the CLASS system especially for people who were like me. As a stay at home mom with no teaching experience, I was afraid of putting together my own curriculum, I was worried about scoring and keeping records and CLASS did all of that for me. It is a great method to use to ease into homeschooling!
Okay, I know that I am terribly behind but this is how I roll. I am a homeschooling mama who LOVES summer. I live for the first time I can go outside barefooted and that first dip in the pool. I am ba humbug about fall/winter and sitting in front of a fire with hot chocolate. I like to get out and do!
So, I haven't even started to think about starting school yet. My typical year we start no later than the 1st of October. We go 5 days a week full speed ahead until Christmas break. Then we cut back to 4 plus about an hour on Fridays until mid-May. I have used the CLASS curriculum for all 3 years I have home-schooled. I like it because it holds me accountable, they score the kids tests and keep all of the records for me. The only thing I have an issue with is the Math curriculum. We have tried both the MCP math and Saxon with Karlee and neither one has worked very well.
I am wondering what curriculum you use? Do you use a certain system? I am open to changing things up a bit this year. I am especially going to need help teaching Math in the high school years.
I would love any and all suggestions!
