Guest suebells Posted August 15, 2012 Share Posted August 15, 2012 Hi all !! It is our first year homeschooling and I am very excited. We have a son who is 9 and will be going into the fourth grade. He was with Connections Academy and it was awful. I purchased some things today and I would love to hear opinions if it is enough. The only purchase I am really dissatisfied with was Horizons Math 4. I don't think the TM is going to be enough for what we need. I was on the fence for Saxon 5/4 so I guess I will exchange for it. Anyway, I bought First Language Lessons level 4 ,Wordly Wise 3000,Easy Grammar,and Apologia Zoology 2 with notebook. So I lack history but I am leaning towards BJU Heritage Studies.The reviews seem very positive for it and they are holding text/TM/notebook/test pack at Bob Jones for me from the "bent and dent" section for 30% off. Once I add the history and pick up the Saxon do you believe that will be sufficient? I am a bit overwhelmed and would appreciate any advice. Gabriel is very good in language arts and science. He is grade level with math but still struggles at times. He loves the Discovery Streaming online but I don't think we can afford that. I feel like I am missing something big. I was told I needed BJU reading program as well but if so, I will have to save for it and make do in the meantime. I know that I must sound scattered brained but I truly have read a zillion reviews until I just picked the items out today and I'm still a bit nauseated over thinking I screwed up. Sorry to ramble. Thanks so much for any help. I can't wait to learn from everyone and hopefully meet some friends as well. Blessings, Suzy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
