RootAnn Posted November 13, 2012 Share Posted November 13, 2012 An acquaintance of my dh pulled him aside to ask questions about homeschooling. This acquaintance is strongly considering homeschooling his son (6th grade) after the holiday break due to some (non-academic) things going on with his current school. Dh offered to have them over to talk about HSing, including curriculum. :blink: I think I can handle helping them figure out math & language arts, but I want some input on science/social studies because they might put him back in next year or the year after. (I'm assuming they won't want to do a 4 yr history or science rotation.) Our state requires math/LA/science/social studies when they fill out paperwork to pull him from public school, so they need to have something to start with. I've been able to figure out that they'll want something secular. I've done some poking around & came up with: Science Essentials Grades 5-6 (Used to be Complete Book of Science Grades 5-6) Steck-Vaughn Science Grade 6 Spectrum Science Grade 6 Anyone have experience with these & want to chime in on what the pros/cons are? Or offer up another suggestion? I have NO idea what to offer for "social studies" and whether they'll want some geography/map skills to go along with it. Ideas? Are there good "text" / "workbook" ideas like the science ones, above? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
