Pcmcvey posted a topic in Talk about homeschooling...My daughter is using the accredited Abeka Academy program this year for 4th grade. With having 2 toddlers also we thought this would be a great way to help me split my time better. We researched this program out before hand, I thought pretty extensively, but after the 1st quarter now I'm having 2nd thoughts. I love the program and the work she is doing. The past years I've wondered if I was challenging her enough and I definitely do not worry about that this year! She is really being forced to use her noggin. My hang up is that while I love the videos, so that I'm not teaching which allows me to focus on my 3 and 1 yr olds, it doesn't feel like home school anymore. Since I'm not teaching her, I am not sitting with her through each subject and now I feel out of the loop. I get way behind in grading her work. The pace that the videos go is extremely quick. There have been days when we needed to stop and take extra time on certain material or a certain subject and she gets behind. Now tonight I was looking at our calendar on the abeka account and we are 2 weeks behind. I feel like we are drowning. I would like to make it through the rest of the school year and we are going to switch to a 10 month calendar which will stretch the year out until mid June (which helps). Does anyone else use or has used this in the past and can offer any advice or tips on getting through? For a multitude of reasons we aren't doing any support groups other than this at the moment. I just need an outside perspective. Thanks!
