BalanceSeeker Posted July 27, 2008 Share Posted July 27, 2008 I just can't decide on curriculum. I've spent at least 50 hours researching all the options. It is my first year, and I have a 4 yo, 1st grader, and 3rd grader. (3rd grader did 2 years at Classical school already). I like Classical, but I do want a Christian worldview built in, and I want some "heart" in it, if that makes sense. Even the Classical Christian school my daughter went to was rather dry, and lacked some joy - like it was all about the philosophy of Classical and it took away from some of the joy of being a kid, if that makes sense. I'm attracted to Winter Promise, Well-Trained Mind stuff, Sonlight (for it's completeness and Christian viewpoint built-in), and also just doing a mish-mash of things. I think I prefer a curriculum for my first year, except I'm okay with choosing my own math/science/LA. My weaknesses are history and geography, so that's my big concern. Thoughts on WP? Is it really doable for my 4-6-8 year olds to stay with the same spine each and every year? Any other curricula I should look into? My head hurts so bad. I feel so behind, as school should be starting soon and I still have no clue what to do. Christa Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
