I've done a lot of homeschooling with dd for pre-k and kindy but it's all been put together stuff out of books and off the internet. I am currently pregnant with twins which is obviously going to cut into a lot of my time. So, I want to get a curriculum.
I have been debating between these two for a very long time. Calvert is very structured. It's helpful for me because everything is really spelled out for the teacher. It seems this would make it easier for DH to just jump right in on days I'm not able to do as much with her. The downside is it does seem kind of stuffy (aka boring) for dd. She's really great and cooperative about her work but I also don't want to bore her just out of convenience. Also, Calvert is quite pricy.
The second is Moving Beyond the Page. It's less expensive and has a lot of fun projects and such. I'm sure dd would enjoy it and I like that there is a lot of creativity involved. However, it isn't really a comprehensive curriculum (no reading or math instruction). DD is reading very well already so that's not too much of a concern and there is math they recommend but of course it's extra.
I've always had a bit of a struggle with my homeschooling style. I'm neither unschool or really structured. Academics are very important but I feel like they can be taught in an order that's flexible for us.
So, if you've read my whole saga .... First, I thank you and second could you please give me your thoughts and advice.
