ivey_family Posted July 4, 2012 Share Posted July 4, 2012 My boys are 16 months apart. By the time they reach 7th and 8th grades, I'd really like them to be working very closely together on content subjects. One of my big goals is Omnibus starting around 7th grade, but I really don't want to teach the same stuff two years in a row, and have to do double the content myself, (if that makes sense?) Has anyone been able to eventually synch up two kids who are fairly close in age? How do you structure the earlier years to get them there - extra content with the oldest to delay the history loop a year? Pushing the younger one along a little more quickly? When would you expect them to really be getting closer together in thinking skills and abilities? Any thoughts and practical tips would be helpful! Another area I'm interested in synching up long term is writing. I'd like to use CW after the FLL sequence. Any reason NOT to start them in CW at the same time around 2nd and 3rd grades? Please know, this is merely a goal I'm exploring, and not in any way set in stone. If my kids can't hack it, we'll adapt and do what's best for them as any parent would. :) Regards, C.
