Hi- I am Amanda- I am new here. Just wondering what everyone uses for homeschool. I have a 7 yr old and a 4 yr old. I use Abeka, Math u see, and nurture minds. Kindof create my own history and science. Still learning. Still figuring out everything.

I use sonlight. But I didn't use there phonics I used teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons. For math I use Horizons and I am really liking it. I may switch sciences next year I am think of using Aplolgy science.

One of the things I am loving about homeschooling is that you will always be still learning and figuring things out.

What fun ages! I love teaching K-2. We pretty much stick to Reading Writing Arithmatic for those grades. By "daily" I mean school days, but often more than that too.

1. Read daily. (search engine: "1000 good books")

2. Sing nursery rhymes daily.

3. Start tracing letters at age 5. Progess to brief passages of copywork at 6. Start spelling (writing road to reading) at age 7.

4. Start identifying sounds of letters at age 4. Use 100 Easy Lessons (only the first 25) at age 5. Use "montessori pink cards" (use search engine) after that. Use readers at age 6.

5. Use Ruth Beechik's math methods until age 6, then use Math U See.

6. No formal science or history until 4th grade. Read books and enjoy nature until then.

I'm using a variety of different things. Our main curriculum is Alpha Omega Lifepacs. I also have items from Abeka and Christian Light. I print a lot of worksheets from online sites. We use the public library a lot too. Also Sam's Club sells great workbooks for younger children (grade pk - 6). My youngest daughter uses Horizon for Math.

We are using Winter's Promise and I think it is kind-of light. I supplement with a lot of other 'things'. We use Math-u-see for Math and Hearts & Hands history kits along with books from the library for history.

We use Abeka's DVD program.  My son, who is also 7, is doing great with it.  I'm amazed at what he is learning.

Right now I'm just using Abeka, my son is only 4 1/2 and he's doing great with it.
