Yikes!!! Curriculum Changeby Just Faith Life Team on 12/07/12
Today Sweet Pea came to me and said, "Mom, I am just not learning anything." What does a mother say to that? I was shocked and speechless.
When we first began homeschooling we decided to go with the Alpha Omega curriculum. Eventually we found LIFEPAC worked better for the younger two and Switched on Schoolhouse worked best for the older two. At first we found the computer program, Switched on Schoolhouse intimidating. This program lasted only 15 days before we quit. Yes, I QUIT! Crazy, I know, but after all the kids had gone through with public school I didn't want to discourage them. I decided that I needed to focus on their weakest subject, reading. We included some math and spelling but we focused on reading and comprehension.
Recently I had the kids tested on their reading levels and was surprised to find out we were making wonderful progress. As you may already know it is difficult to judge their progress when you are with them every day but their test confirmed tremendous advancement. I was one very proud mama!
After Sweet Pea's comments I was shocked but we decided to try Alpha Omega again. So we have officially started back with Switched on Schoolhouse. The girls love it. They actually wanted to stay up late and keep working. We picked up right where we left off and I was amazed at how eager they were to just sit, read and do quizzes on things that they had learned months ago. I am happy to find they are passing all their quizzes!!
