Well, I have another question that maybe some people who use K12 can help with. I realized they have more than sample lessons on their website, I can actually download curriculum outlines! I wish I had noticed it before
My son took the LA placement test and placed into K, not Grade one. He does not read yet, though he can sound out simple cvc words, if they aren't real words (like some of them on the placement test) he is lost. This prompted me to look at the scope and sequence on the K12 website when I realized it was there. In K they are starting on, oh, I forget the term- digraphs? When they have "ck" and "sh" type blends. He didn't do this in K in ps. He knows all the letters, their sounds, etc, just not the blends. Then I looked at K science and history and they seem more, well, put together than he had in ps. I mean, they are talking about locating australia on a map, etc and I don't think he ever did that in K.
He's only 6. I am seriously thinking about ordering him the K curriculum for k12. It seems so much more complete then he got in school. He graduated K just fine, though. So should I put him in K for LA and do grade one for everything else? Or is the grade one curriculum going to require knowledge of writing and reading that he doesn't have yet and touch on things that happened during the K curriculum that he didn't cover in his ps education?
And-- do you think I could make double copies of everything and have my daughter do some of this stuff for K (esp the phonics), as well, but not paying for the K12 lesson plans? So then I can kind of see how she learns and does, etc?
I really want to go ahead and purchase it this week. I don't know how long it will take to get to me and I want to start the 15th of Aug.
