Well old lessons need to be re-learned sometimes. I went with a curriculum this fall out of fear (custody case).
It wasn't great. For Ko-Ko it just doesn't sink in doing worksheets.
So we are back to our old ways (still using curriculum for math).
Right now we are reading "Shannen's dream for a school". A true story about the kids in Attawapiskat (northern Ontario). We are doing vocabulary and spelling from words in the book. Chosen when she asks what they mean. Geography and geology based on the book. Plus the book is about currant history and politics. What more could you ask for? Art, well she has made some lovely protest signs just like the kids in the book.
So glad to be back at it our way. And I totally recommend this book.
You can also learn about the Shannen's Dream foundation and watch you tube videos of the kids speaking so google away "Shannen's Deam".
