I have tossed and turned a lot thus far. We have used the same things since we started our school year but I have had a hard time keeping our focus the way I had it laid out. This has lead to lots of spits and sputters and stops and stalls. I have struggled to keep any kind of momentum going. Thanks to some recent discussions on the Well-Trained Mind forums, I have decided that I needed to quit fighting what I felt was the right direction for us.
I'm going to allow the Core Knowledge Sequence to be our guiding light. Thanks to the What Your x Grader Needs to Know books this is really easily done. I will still be using the Intellego Unit Studies, but they will now become something I turn to looking for extras to go with our NTK books. I am using lots of Let's Read and Find Out and Magic School Bus books for adding to science and a variety of books for social studies. BrainpopJR and Magic School Bus videos are also a regular here and we will add in other videos that I find fit in well with our studies.
We have begun making pages to put together a journal that is inspired by Waldorf's main lesson book.
