I am so picky about curriculum too! Last year, DS6 was in public virtual charter school for Kindergarten. The staff pushed us toward "complete" curriculum. I despise complete curriculum and we barely used any of it. He did great with Kumon workbooks because each one focuses on a specific skill. I'm very careful to not let him get ahead of grade level in reading, writing, and math because I want him back in public school ASAP.No I just hate it and want to trash half of it and come up with other ideas we are ahead in some areas though! I’m really picky…. I prefer to come up with my own curriculum, but that got a lot harder having 3 kids than it was with one!
We are currently using the same math curriculum as the elementary school uses - Eureka, plus Kumon, plus Math Seeds online program. He is using Reading Eggs and Fast Phonics, Kumon, and sometimes IXL.
I have the problem of finding more good material than a kid can use.
