I am pulling my dd7 out of school after next week when she finishes first grade. I have been obsessively reading lots of different hs books and building up an outline of what I want to do. I bought SOTW and already read one chapter with her and got half a dozen books from the library that relate. I settled on a math program but haven't purchased yet and am considering what I want for Reading/Writing/Spelling if anything.
I am so excited about homeschool, I want to start right away but part of me thinks I should just wait until September so I can make a big deal about "starting school". Since I didn't hs this past year, we are a year "behind" for the Story of the World which is supposed to be done over 4 years so I'm gonna jump start this for sure but not sure about everything else? What types of schedules work for folks? Do you take the summer off?
When you first started, did you begin in Sept?
