blessed2fosteradopt Posted February 28, 2008 Share Posted February 28, 2008 Hi: I am new here and thank those who answered my previous post. I am strongly considering HS my son for 5th grade next year. He has gone to private Christian school since K4 and although I really love the school, he has a lot of focus issues and organizational skills. I think he could really thrive at home. He has been using BJU and Saxon 6/5 this year. He is an "okay" reader - he doesn't enjoy reading out loud (we are currently reading The Pilgrim's Progress) and does well on Spelling tests but only because of his rote memory. His writing is always filled with spelling errors. His writing skills seem average from what I can tell for a 4th grader but he really has not had much practice and he does not enjoy putting thought to paper. He struggles with this on tests where he has to come up with a written answer. He does an average job in Social Studies and Science. He is an all around A/B student with a C here and there. He does well in Bible. It is his favorite subject. With that said, can you give me suggestions as to what curricula you think would be good for him and that he would enjoy? Also, I would like something that is easy to teach as we are just embarking on this journey. Blessings, Lisa Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
