New to this forum... :)
We have recently decided to homeschool our dc2 who is entering 4th grade. We are undecided as to our 7th grader. So I am trying to research some options. I really like the Sonlight curriculum for dc2, that is what I am leaning towards. Middle school seems like a different ballgame though. I am open to other options as well but wondered if you guys had any thoughts about these.
Some background on us...
*We'd like something to give a pretty solid world view, however being a religious (Christian) curriculum is fine.
*I am a teacher (leaving my job) and prefer a curriculum that lays out my targets clearly and does not require gobs of individual planning, but will allow me to have creative freedom as well.
*I may be working part time (2 days each week) and dh is not a teacher, so something that I can adjust on those days would be good.
*I would prefer not to piece together parts of various curriculum.
*I may be able to utilize curriculum from their current schools, however not sure I want to.
*Cost is a big factor. I am leaving my ft (though not well paying) job. We are severely cutting back bills but I am not wanting to try something and have to immediately go back to the drawing board and pay more $.
Can't think of what other information to give. I am enjoying reading through previous threads to see what has worked, get ideas of joys and challenges, and educate myself. I homeschooled for preschool but this seems bigger and scarier!
Thank you for any thoughts, ideas, and information!!!
