I didnt see an intro page so I picked here-hope that is right. My name is Kristen and I am a mom to 6 and I am pulling DS out of 5th grade. We switched schools last year, under redistricting, and have been miserable.
I also have a 9th grade boy who loves HS and is fine where he is, a 4th and Kdg who will finish up the year, and a 3 yo and 15 month old. I taught 1st and 4th grade in the public setting for 6 years and hold a masters in ed. so the teaching part is not what scares me. Being thorough with an wide open plate does-KWIM?
Here is my plan for the remainder of the year if you want to give me your thoughts:
Saxon 65 math(tested him yesterday)
saxon reading/language 5
A beka history 4(using this level b/c it will be more what he does in 6th and 5th was not at all what they are using)
Science will be using a variety of literature to hit on topics to incorporate reading(his nemesis) and writing.
Wordly wise and a spelling book I got(although he is an amazing speller)
he plays travel soccer and is finishing Weblos 2 and rolling to Boy Scouts this month. I will also be getting him together with the local group for a weekly PE class when it warms up. I do live in VA(Fauquier county) and will be using the HEAV.org site as well as joining HSLDA.
I am more stressed about next year and making sure that I cover all bases with my younger kids. They will transition into middle school in 6th grade as I really like our middle school and HS. (isn't it usually the opposite?)
