We started homeschooling two weeks ago (long back story - plus where we live school is in session till July 18th) We are starting with basics Math, Reading, Spelling and handwriting.
She was in first grade but had fallen behind in Math - so I thought - she has been flying through Math U See Alpha usually we spend no more than two days on a lesson, a few has only been on day. She does the lesson and systematic review worksheets. Should we just continue at this pace to make sure there are no gaps? I could break it up into smaller lessons and spread out the lessons - right now she spends 30-40 mins on math depending on if she watched the video. Should we consider skipping to beta?
I would also appreciate any feedback regarding her reading. We are doing AAR2 because she hasn’t been taught the phonics rules. The problem is she reads at a 3/4 grade level according to some testing we did mid-year. She can easily read all the words presented to her but she is learning the phonics rules. But again she can - because of her actual reading leave she works through the activities pretty quickly.
This summer my plan is to work on basics and get her in a rhythm of working with me. We live outside the US so if I am going to get new curriculum I need to get it when we go this summer. So I feel some pressure of purchasing some good fits.
Thank you in advance
