March 13, 2009, Newsletter Issue #270: Staggered Homeschool Curriculum

Tip of the Week

It's easier to find a homeschool curriculum for your child when he or she is working at the same grade level across all subjects, but what happens when that child is flourishing in math and science, but struggling with history and language?

The last thing you want to do is hold back learning in subjects where your child excels to play catch up in others. Those subjects your child is advanced in are most likely the ones he or she loves. If you do a bit of online research, you'll find there are curriculum sources that will provide staggered grade levels for this exact purpose. It's worth the research.

Thanks so much for reading the the Homeschool Tips Newsletter.

The new 2006-2007 Sonlight catalog is hot off the presses! In addition to new educational resources, we've also made some significant improvements to our curriculum, such as expanded flexibility in Reader choices for Levels K through 2.

The catalog also provides several articles with helpful homeschool tips. For example, check out the "Top Ten Goals" article (pp. 146-147) which can help you think through your personal philosophy when it comes to homeschooling. And "Why we use certain books that some homeschoolers won't touch" (pp. 144-145), that gets into some pretty important issues about the content of books. And you won’t want to miss “27 Reasons NOT to Buy Sonlight”—a perennial favorite (beginning on page 148).
