Thank you. I definitely think I am going to go back to my original plan. DD hates to write, so that probably explains why she like worksheets and workbooks.......because it's mostly fill in and not alot of writing for her. We still haven't done much writing yet this year, because I am taking baby steps. I don't want to scare her off completely! :D So, for now we are working on strengthening her vocabulary and grammar, and just started writing sentences.
OK.......I just started homeschooling my 7th grade DD who had been in public school since Kindergarten. I had these visions of a very relaxed process, although I guess in my mind I didn't really call it that. I just knew we were going to do alot of reading and discussing and spending quality time together. Well, what's happened is that somehow workbooks and worksheets have taken over. I originally wasn't going to have much of this type of stuff, maybe just a few minimal things. But DD likes worksheets & workbooks and likes to get "grades" since she's so used to that.........and sin
