Though I've been long interested in hs-ing, I wound up sending ds1 to public school until this year (4th grade) as he was having a lot of trouble paying attention in class and actually learning things (he was diagnosed with ADD last summer). I decided to use K12 as a starting point but am about done with it -- too much work.
My tentative plan for the rest of the school year is to continue doing the fun stuff we've already lined up -- homeschool co-op once a week, hs gym at the Y, various classes at the museums, parks, etc. -- and at home just work on reading.
What are some great first steps to take here? I want to do more reading myself to figure out what direction we are going in .... I would love to hear suggestions for books and links that will help me, and any kind of basic information you think might be helpful for both of us starting out. Thank you!
