Homeschool Curriculum

Okay, all you homeschool Moms.

I am NOT going to homeschool.

It would NEVER work in my household.

BUT.... This summer I'd like to work with the girls on a couple of things.

Both of them could use some handwriting help. And math would be good, too.

Do you have any suggestions for curriculum that's worked great at your house? The girls are 6 and 8 now -- going into 1st and 3rd.

Thanks!

I fired up my Google-fu and found this:

D'Lyn,

Handwriting: we use A Reason for Handwriting, which uses scripture for copy work. You could look at the website to see what they do for book A (which would be 1st), and just pick your own scriptures and have her/them copy them. I have a lined dry erase board that I use to write the copy work for her to see how to write the letters.

Math: You can use any math practice book you can find in your teacher supply store. I like Spectrum for practice. Sam's Club also has some neat books that are for specific grade levels that cover everything-I do like those.

Here's a couple of sites you might find helpful for grade level skills:

www.kidzone.ws
www.learningpage.com (you have to register here, but it's free)

If you need more, let me know.
