New month, the new semester and my inbox contain questions of How to get back on track or How do you even start teaching your kids at home? I’ve written a few posts about this, and most are over on Sandbox to Socrates as it has the bigger audience of homeschoolers.
I purchased grade level sets for most of my main curriculum for the last two school years. This year I’m mostly on my own.

We may even take two years to get through them. I haven’t quite decided yet.
