After years of reading on these forums, I made an account just so I could ask this question!
My kids are in kindergarten and 2nd grade at the local public elementary. I'm generally very happy with the school, but they're in the process of implementing Common Core and I'm not thrilled with that. My older daughter is quite advanced with her reading, yet she received "2"s on her recent report card because that's all the further they were expected to be at this point in the year. A "2" was the highest grade the teacher could give. So her report card does not reflect her actual knowledge or ability and, since she has to move at the same pace as everyone else, she's getting bored in class.
I'm considering homeschooling, but the 2nd grader loves being in the school choir and the kindergartener just blooms socially when she's able to work in groups... so here's my question...
Has anyone successfully done a public school/home school hybrid? I feel like it might work out well if the kids were home with me part of the week so that they could work at their own academic pace and then at school part of the week so that they could participate in the programs that they love and have different interactions with other kids and adults. Is this even possible?
Thanks in advance!
