LisaKinVA Posted September 14, 2012 Share Posted September 14, 2012 I honestly didn't mind that my oldest dd could finish her daily work in a 2 hours or so when she was in the 2nd grade. She's now in the 5th grade. In approximately 2 hours she has completed all of her required work (except for an hour of reading & Latin...which is the one subject she really must work, she's working through Wheelock's with her older brother who is enrolled in Scholar's Online). That 2 hours includes a requirement of about one hour in math daily... She's still finishing up last year's reading, grammar and spelling (behind, due to moving...), and she's been working on a one-year acceleration in those subjects (definitely not challenged, but something I haven't worried too much about, either). However, as she's approaching the middle- and high school years, I think she should start facing a bit more challenging work (not just more, for the sake of doing more) I haven't yet purchased her new reading/spelling/grammar...I was planning on Abeka grade 6 for those, but now I'm wondering if I should up the challenge a bit and see how she does in Abeka 7 for those subjects. She is hard working, diligent, and rises to a challenge. She is tackling the pacing of Wheelock's like a champ. She will be starting BJU Earth/Space Science (with DVD) in another month...I'm certain that will be a challenging program as well. She's flying through LoF Pre-Algebra, and will be starting AoPS pre-Algebra & TT Algebra 1 probably within the next 4-5 months. I think she'd do fine with Abeka 7, it would still be a bit on the "easy" side, and I could bump her up to Voyage with her older brother, vs. working through Town with her younger brother. What do you think? I know Abeka isn't the best...but it works for us for grammar/lit/spelling (at least through 8th grade, after which we switch to BJU for Lit).
