I'm trying to figure out the right materials for us. I will be homeschooling my 3 and 5 year old sons, and I have an infant also. I find that I do need a daily curriculum/plan to follow to keep us going and motivated. I like what I've read/seen of both these programs.
For Earthschooling, I've heard that it is a great resource with lots of information and activities, but no daily plans. Also, I have a preschooler and a kindergartener, so the levels would be different. Also, it is more Waldorf-inspired than strictly waldorf, which may work well for us as my kindergartener really loves academic stuff (and has begun reading on his own), and so I'm open to going with the flow of what he's ready to learn and do.
Little Acorn Learning we've gotten before a few times. I like the daily plans (that I do end up changing to fit our lives a bit) to get us on the right track and the fact that it can be used for multiple ages.
Has anyone used these programs together and how did it work for you?
I LOVE Little Acorn. Now its been years since I bought earth schooling's kindy program but there were no academics in the one I had so I don't think you would need different levels for your prek/kindy kids.
if you want something more structured for you but light for the kids and a bit more academic focused you might look at oak meadow. It would introduce numbers 1-10 and capital letters but still very waldorf-y paced.
