Homemama2 Posted October 19, 2012 Share Posted October 19, 2012 Looking ahead to next year... I was wondering if I could get some opinions on these two. I think after all of these years of picking all my individual subjects, I want to go with something "pre-planned" for next year. Something where I don't have to spend so much time and energy on planning school and pulling things together and I can just open the book and go. (We're going to most likely be building a house next year and I'll be too busy.) Is TOG a curriculum where I have to plan out a lot and invest a lot of time? I love the looks of what I've seen on-line, but I'm afraid it would be just as time consuming as what I'm doing now (pulling together our own history program using BF, AO, and TQ.) Sonlight looks pretty good (I've looked over my friend's copy). We would be coming from Ambleside Online readings for most subjects, which are pretty challenging... and we would be looking at Core E for 4th and 6th. I guess I'm wondering if it would be challenging enough for 6th grade? I know the age range includes 6th, but my friend used it for 4th and I've bought several curriculums in the past where I didn't agree with the recommended age levels. Is Sonlight pretty accurate on their age ranges? I don't mean so much for the history; I'm meaning for the Language Arts (reading, grammar, writing etc.) Or if there is something else you'd recommend, I'm all ears. :bigear: I do have science purchased, which is why I've kind of eliminated MFW...
