Now that the 100th day of school has come and gone how is it going? Are you happy with your curriculum? Do you want to ditch it and try something else? Tweek it a bit? There is no "perfect" curriculum out there. That is what is so wondeful about homeschooling. You can fit it to how your child learns best and at his or her own pace. Sometimes you will find that your child will be in different levels in various subjects and thats ok. Most important is to find out what kind of learner he or she is. Then build from that. My son is a visual, auditory and kinthesic learner. So he learns by watching, hearing and touching. Hands on activites are a must. Learning CDs/cassetts are another thing that helps him learn. With my daughter I am still trying to figure out how she learns best. She loves to draw so lots of that is going on in between lessons. Here are a few books and websites that have helped me.
