Finding the Balance of Mom Involvement

Recommended Posts

I'm really stuck on finding the right history and science for my 4th and 6th grader next year (I usually school them together). I will also have my first high schooler in the fall along with a 2nd grader, a Ker, a 3yo, and an infant. So, I need something pretty independent, but something where I still have some involvement. I find that they learn more when I am part of the lessons and they enjoy it more. But, I don't have the time to read aloud for hours a day or to lead super-involved labs. But I would still like science with labs.


Any science and history suggestions that might work?

Apologia young explorers series is a bit time intensive but you don't always have to do it together. Or, you can schedule large chunks twice a week when the babies are napping.


Another option is Story of the Worlrd which provides an excellent t overview and fodder for discussion. There's also the CD you can perhaps listen to while nursing the baby, and then if you had to manage your 3 year old you could whisper to her while the CD reads story of the World aloud.


Just some ideas. I'm no expert as I have only two close in age.
