As faeriemom said, we started Calvert kindergarten in May, as a way to make sure ds is ready for first grade Calvert by early winter.
Overall I am happy with this course. It is not religious, and the material is easy to understand. Some of you are saying you have 4.5 year olds, and I do not think that is too young for Calvert Kindergarten. Ds turned 6 in April, and the kindergarten level is almost too easy. I still think it is a great review even for a 6 year old, and I think it will make first grade much easier.
So far we are on lesson 24 out of 160 lessons. The lessons are what you make of them. I have tried to do EVERYTHING they suggest, but be warned, they have LOTS of extra curricular suggestions, and we are starting to skip the one's that are just too time consuming or boring. Also, because ds is older, I am just now starting to combine 2 lessons into one, to keep this more challenging. I will stop if it seems like too much. But really, this is not difficult material, it just a matter of how much time you spend on each topic.
Good luck, and have fun!
