Hi, all. My son turns 5 next week, and we're starting K this fall. We've been doing Logic of English Foundations for PreK. We finished A and we've just begun B - (I suspect we'll be moving slower through B, but that's a whole 'nother topic ). I am not fond of the font used in LoE and I much prefer the font (both manuscript and cursive) in Pentime. It's something I've always planned to use in the future. I'm just curious if Pentime 1 is appropriate for K? From what I can see on the samples, it appears to be, but the samples online are limited. Would appreciate your feedback. FYI - he loves to write/draw etc.
Also, I'm not ready to begin the history cycle, but would like to introduce some basic 'social studies' in K. I am looking at BJU Heritage Studies 1. Although my son's reading is coming along fairly well, I'd probably do most of it orally. I'm a nurse and DH is a firefighter, plus he's been in a little preschool for the past couple years, so we've exhausted 'community helpers' to death. Do you think BJU's HS 1 would work for a K'er?
I'd love to hear your thoughts on these programs for K. DS will be about 5.5 years old when we'd start. Thank you!
