our life, and dh's and my responsibilties have changed drastically lately and i feel like my dd's (5 and 3) are getting lost in the shuffle. and it seems it will be like this for the next year or so. i am attacking this on many fronts (trying to find extra childcare, re-establish a daily rhythm, etc) but i am also considering some kind of very basic, minimal curriculum. maybe to start in the fall. i just feel like we need - something, mostly for my older dd of course. i am now in school full time (online, but part of the reason things have gotten crazy) and i've done a lot of learning about how the ages 6-10 are a time when children really have a desire to be productive and industrious and I see these leanings in my dd and feel i am having trouble leading her to success. anyhow, i am indeed an unschooler, but thought i might need a bit of support so i can do what's best for my girls. i am posting here specifically because i'd like to hear what people of a similar philosophy might have tried/considered/used.
has anyone seen the "what your x-grader needs to know" books? maybe something as simple as that, but looking for other ideas too.
thanks for considering!
