Guest Sportygal_22 Posted August 17, 2012 Share Posted August 17, 2012 I'm am just coming into homeschool. I've got an almost 8yo, a 6yo, a 5yo, and almost 3 yo boys. I've been reading a lot and trying to come up with curriculum for my boys. I feel like I like the ideas in the WTM, but in all honesty I don't know what else is out there. My problem is everything seems so dry, I'm trying to foster continual excitement about learning, but how can I do that with material that seems boring? Am I looking in the right areas? I like the WTM b/c it gives me an idea of how to do things and I need that. So far with the suggestions in the WTM I have come up with this 8 yo (grade 2) - spelling power, rod and staff English, zaner-blowser handwriting, wwe, Saxon math, story of the world Any suggestions for more exciting material? Not sure what to do. I think science and art could help with some excitement, I just haven't figured out what yet. I know not every subject is always going to be exciting, but I dont want to have to fight the kids ALL the time. Sorry for the novel, just hoping for some help. Thanks for your time.
