I am wondering about top recommendations for Language Arts & Math curriculum. Where is the best place to get information about quality programs? What suggestions do you have or what programs have worked with your kids?
I am in the 4th year of homeschooled my daughter. My husband is a public school teacher (I am not). He and I researched math curriculum independantly and both came up with Singapore as what we thought was the best. We used it a few years for early elmentary.
We switched to Teaching Textbooks Math curriculum later because my daughter liked to try to "argue" with me over math concepts when I was teaching her new concepts - she is very strong willed and thinks she knows more then she does. Math is not a strong point for me since I have disgraphia (number dyslexia). (Though math is a subject in which my husband is very strong; he is currently seeking a second subject teaching certification in math).
Our daughter has been doing very well with teaching textbooks this year. Math lessons are a much more composed time in our house now.
I know other homeschoolers that are very happy with Horizon Math as well.
