A Homeschooling Post
Since I'm always writing about homeschooling. I'm choosing next year's books. It gets easier every year since you figure out what you like, but we're adding grammar and Latin next year, so there are some choices to make. What I really want is to sit down and look at some different options, but there aren't any homeschooling stores around. I'm leaning toward Growing with Grammar and Latin for Children. I want a Latin program that doesn't spell everything out for me (since I know enough Latin to be comfortable with teaching my children), but is also engaging for an 8-year-old. And not horribly expensive.
And we'll get more Miquon and Singapore math books and keep marching through Story of the World and start on chemistry. And drop the spelling books. They are torture for older son and younger son spends his days pretending he's in a spelling bee, so they're worthless for him. I'm thinking Spelling Time might be a better choice (and it's easy and free).
You're welcome to make any recommendations you like.
