We are a young homeschooling family and have only recently started to explore formal curriculum. In the early years we find that focusing on a healthy and enriching home environment along with the patience to let little ones explore at their own pace is more than optimal.
- my son turned seven and was actively seeking out more stimulation,
- New York State Laws require that we begin turning in our plans and reporting on progress, and
- I started a new job working from home.
The combination of of these changes led us to seek out curriculum tools to help us cover the basics. We started out simple: math and reading.
