provenance61 Posted September 14, 2012 Share Posted September 14, 2012 We homeschool our son, now in 5th. We planned to do both 3hour kindergarten AND homeschool our daughter, who just turned 5. She has a visual impairment and did two years of inclusion 1/2 day PK before this. (She also did HS co-ops with us though, so she's really been both all along.) This year is just NOT worked out well. She does well in K (only one week so far) but the atmosphere just isn't sitting well with me. At what point do you think it would be okay to pull her and just HS? At first, we were going to pul her after K (she is VERY active and needs lots of redirection). But I just don't see it working well even for 1/2 the year. The school just doesn't want involvement from the parents (other than contributions and reading). It is very corporate. The 3 hour in the morning period also is not enough for me to do all HS with our DS. The amount of time responding to teachers, getting her ready and then calmed down after (she is WILD, we think it is sensory or related to transition) -- is more than the 3 hours she is there. And the main reason for trying kindergarten -- the low vision devices we're trying -- is really not getting much attention at school. At home we could do so much more with her. So, has anyone else had a child in school or in kindergarten, and then decided early to pull and homeschool? Any thoughts would be so much appreciated!
