I have a question I'm hoping you all can help with. I've been homeschooling my son since preschool and he's now a kindergartener. We've been doing a more unstructured "unschooling" approach, but lately I'm feeling like he needs something more structured. I'm leaning toward purchasing a curriculum that we can use at our own pace, as opposed to one of the online schools that assigns you a teacher. I do realize there's lots of good stuff out there for free, but frankly I don't have time to sort through it all and put things together given the constraints on my time (I also have twin toddlers at home).
So I'm wondering if anyone has purchased a curriculum they really liked for gifted students? I have looked at the websites so far for K12, Clonlara, and Laurel Springs. My main concern is finding something that will allow him to work at a different pace for different subjects (for example, he's an excellent reader, but has very little exposure to social studies).
He's 5 and loves to play (as it should be at that age), so I want something that will challenge him, be exciting and hands-on, and not be too "schoolish" (I'd like to keep the worksheets, tests, etc. to a minimum).
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
