my daughter is 10 and in 4th grade. next year, for 5th grade, she is considering public school for the first time. i feel like she will be okay both socially and academically. *i* have a little anxiety of course, but i would never let her see this. i really want to support this decision, should she choose to pursue public school. my question is, what should i be focusing on now to make sure she is ready for 5th grade.i want this transition to be as seamless as possible. my son will definitely continue to homeschool. my daughter has the option to try this and return to homeschooling as well. we only asked that she try it through at least christmas break (does that sound reasonable??).
thanks for your insight, words of wisdom, and thoughts. especially if you have BTDT.
