This needs to be a place where HSI members can feel safe to ask questions related to curriculum choices...regardless if you are using secular or non-secular choices! This is NOT a place...

    Sorry I didn't mean to hurt your feelings. I am sure your son is a brilliant child! These forums seem so impersonal and sometimes you forget someone is on the other end of a message. I got a meany after me too :) I was severely misunderstood or mis-spoken. Oh well that's the brakes...sorry. Try...

  • Re: Considering homeschool for 1st grader

    Calvert is a strong choice if you want an all-in-one package. You can buy their math curriculum separately, and the folks I know who use it really like it. I use a mishmash of things: Singapore for Math, Junior Great Books series (http://store.greatbooks.org/index.php?cPath=1) for Language arts, "Brighter...

  • Re: secular curriculum

    Didn't say there wasn't room for God- Just would like to teach my son about God, the bible and different Religions -at that- seperately from Grammar, Math, History and so on. In all the Christian based on- line homeschools that I saw so far, had quotes from the bible, sentences about God, and...
