I have been surfing the web for hours and now I'm just confused. Dd is going to start kindy next year. This year she went to preschool where they used Abeka but I don't plan on keeping up with that curriculum. She's just beginning to read and loves to write. I know many don't do much for kindy level but I'm looking for phonics, writing, reading of course, and maybe even some very light grammar.
My 8 yr old is homeschooled and has been since halfway through kindy but we floundered around trying to find a language arts program that "fit."
Things I used with ds that I'm not interested in trying with dd: Sing, Spell, Read, and Write, Explode the Code, K12 LA.
Out of those I actually liked k12 the best but we were drowning in worksheets and it was pretty expensive. I do like that it follows the Core Knowledge Series. We follow the series for history and science using the Baltimore Curriculum Projects free plans.
I like the idea of Moving Beyond the Page but that's an entire curriculum and I only need language arts. We're really happy with what we use in other subjects (BCP for history and science, MUS for math).
I would prefer to keep it secular or mostly secular. I don't mind a few inferences here and there however.
Any ideas? I know I can put together a bunch of various things but I would love for it to be all in one kit like k12 is.
