momto3boys Posted February 15, 2012 Share Posted February 15, 2012 My older boys are 3 and 5 and we had been planning on pulling them from their preschool/preK in late April when we move and HSing on a trial basis for a while. I had been happily researching curricula and buying what I could used and generally preparing myself. However DH tonight announced he wants to pull them out in two weeks! Lately the quality of the schooling has been in a steady decline and it would save us a lot of $$ to pull them early. So.....I need to order the rest of my curricula now. (DH wants them "schooled," no taking a break, etc, part of the compromise for us to HS on a trial basis.) I have purchased the entire Miquon set and the SM 1A & 1B texts for my DS5 who is advanced in math. I know I need the SM HIG and workbooks. I'm trying to decide on which manipulatives to order:obviously cuisenaire rods and tracks but what about: Geometric solids, bucket scales, Multilink cubes, Bear counters, Hundreds chart....I plan on getting my DS3 SM Essential Math A more for him to have his own work than really trying to get him through a curriculum...is that a good plan or is there a better very basic math program? I want him to have his own "books" to work on at his pace like his brother. I also have OPGTR but haven't done much with it yet. My kids also do Reading Eggs and Starfall on the computers. My older son is a beginning reader, he loves reading eggs which we just started last week. We have BOB books and do read alouds also. DS3 knows 90% of his letters and phonics but is not ready to go further right now-would it be worth it to get him the first ETC books (Get Ready, Get Set, and Go for the Code)? Sorry so long winded, just trying to figure everything out so I can order what we need without being wasteful. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
