My oldest daughter will be going into 6th grade next year. We planned on homeschooling her starting next year, but with the way school was going for her, we pulled her out in the middle of the year.
B/c of this the only curriculum that I could use was Lifepac. I think that it's a wonderful curric. She seems to flourish getting done and having a sense of accomplishment with every unit (workbook) she finishes. There are a few things that I wish were a little different...I wish that it came in an easier translation, ie NIV, NKJV. I don't have a problem at all with KJV, it's just harder for her to comprehend that text. It doesn't keep her attention very well...which is something that we struggle with for everyday things, but I would like something that would help keep her focused!
Any ideas? I really like Switched On Schoolhouse, but don't know if I like the idea of being at the coumputer in front a screen all day...I don't know........
