Shanna Posted November 15, 2011 Share Posted November 15, 2011 I'm in the newbie stages of planning curriculum for next year. I lean towards Classical and Waldorf, which sometimes don't play nicely together. Case in point: I'm interested in the RightStart Math curriculum for my energetic son, and borrowed the Level A from a friend to see what I thought. The curriculum looks GREAT, but I was shocked by how deep into mathematics the curriculum goes for a 5-year old. I had in mind that, for Kindergarten, we'd do the Oak Meadows curriculum and just generally get into the rhythms of HSing, getting familiar with letters and numbers. When I saw the RS Level A, it's what I would have pictured for 1st grade. However, being highly-educated and married to a highly-educated man, I'm embarrassed to say that my pride is rebelling at having my 1st grader do "Kindergarten" math. I've gone off on a rabbit trail - my point was to get opinions about the RightStart Level A, especially knowing what my relaxed goals are for that year. My friend who lent me the curriculum said that everything in Level A is covered in Level B, albeit faster. A big part of the reason we have decided to HS was to get away from these ideas of "behind" and "ahead", and I'm allowing myself to get drawn into them anyway..... Comments? Sage advice?
