lotsofpumpkins Posted March 16, 2012 Share Posted March 16, 2012 This year I'm running 3 HOD guides, and I need to simplify next year. I'll have my 2nd, 4th, and 5th graders together for Bible/science/history. I was planning on letting my younger dc (will be PreK and K) tag along for those subjects. The K'er will have his 3R's covered, and the PreK'er will have R&S ABC workbooks (she LOVES "doing school"!). But then I wonder if they'll actually get anything out of tagging along with the olders. I'm thinking about FIAR or something like that, but then I'm getting back into being un-simplified. I'm also thinking about just scheduling some time to read books to the younger dc each day (to make sure it gets done), without a specific "program". I'm thinking about this a lot because my 3yo (4 in Sept) is not content to just play or color during school anymore. She requests school constantly. She works in her workbooks and plays with math manipulatives, but I'm wondering if she'll ever be content unless we have something scheduled and predictable. We are using HOD's Little Hands this year, and I'm not enjoying it as much as I hoped I would. I've looked at MFW K for 5 years now (ever since my oldest was 5) but never bought it. From what I hear, it could be really fun for the 3yo and 5yo. Anyway, I'm just wondering how other large families handle the preschool/K years. I know of one IRL who does not do ANYTHING except LeapFrog DVD's until they start 1st grade. I would like to do something, I'm just not sure what.
