Dianne-TX Posted June 15, 2009 Share Posted June 15, 2009 I tend to be in the "relaxed" camp and focus on the basics. (math, copywork, narration, reading practice) I'm fairly confident in what we do for our education. Of course, there's Bible and scripture memory and character training and a lot of read alouds, too. We do the extra subjects (science mainly) by using library books, nature study, field trips, etc. I often think, though, am I going to "regret" or in some way "miss" something with ds now that he'll need later? Am I being naive now and one day it's all going to hit and I'm going to realize that I shouldn't have been confident in what we do? What is too relaxed and that I won't be able to get back later? KWIM? I've always heard that 4th grade becomes more serious and is the transitional stage. Am I still okay with relaxed at 8 1/2? What is something you wish you could go back and change that you see now would have helped in later years? Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
