  1. How can they not teach grammar in school? How will they manage in college if they don't have basic grammar? I have heard this a few times now and am shocked every time. Thank you for the help. I have never heard of Analytical Grammar and will check it out.
  2. I would REALLY like to start him in 9th grade this fall. That is my goal. Thank you so much for your help. edit* I still can't manage to get my replies under the intended response. I thought it was the quote option but clearly I am doing something wrong. My apologies.
  3. Can anyone suggest a program that will help me get my son up to 9th grade level with grammar? I unschooled in the past and am trying to catch him up to 9th grade to either enter high school or use a comprehensive homeschool Curriculum. He is a strong reader and speller however his grammar and writing skills need work. I would like to find something akin to the Learn Math Fast program but for English grammar. Thank you to everyone that has helped me with all of my questions and issues. I wish I could jump back to 1st grade. I would have done things so differently! Thank you again. Heather
  4. Thank you for your help everyone. I think I am freaking out over this for little reason. Also, is there no way to reply to responses directly? I feel like I am probably just overlooking the reply in the comments. So thank you each for your help.
  5. I am not 100% clear on my states credit policy. I was just reading more about that earlier. I had not planned on him wanting to change to a traditional school. I am thrilled he does but not sure how that will work. How do I test his reading and math levels? His reading is absolutely fine and most likely well above his age and would be grade. In math he is somewhat behind I would think. He can manage everything up to decimals and that's where we stopped at the end of 2020. Can you suggest any ways I can create an organized plan for his Curriculum since he is all over the place in levels? I have tried countless times over the last year to create a customized curriculum for him but failed. I tried online programs like IXL but more time was wasted trying to get him where he needed to be than actually learning. Thank you so much for your input.
  6. Hi, This is my first post and I apologize in advance if I break any rules. I don't use forums often and am a bit new to all the in's and out's of message boards. I will ask my question and if I am in the wrong place just let me know and I will figure out where I need to be. Thanks. I have a 14 year old son that has been in homeschool since kindergarten. I need to start over with the methods I am currently using in homeschool and have no idea how to do so. I have been "unschooling" rather than using curriculum or planned lessons. I received some horrible advice and listened to it for literally YEARS before realizing that it was not in the best interest of my sons future. I wasted the entirety of last year trying to start over with little to show for it. Can anyone give me any advice on how to start from scratch with a 14yr old? I am so overwhelmed that I really have zero clue how to proceed. There are so many holes in his learning that its almost like I literally taught him nothing. I basically have to pack in 8 years of school into one so that I can get him back on track as he wants to go to public school when he turns 16 in order to see what high school is like and graduate from a brick and mortar school. If this post is confusing I apologize. I am a mess and can't manage to think straight. Thanks for any advice or help that you can give me.
