In a nutshell I started to homeschool our oldest daughter (6th) grade this year, I have been homeschooling her younger sister for awhile now.
I am soooo struggling with her, she was an honor roll student in public school but does not have basic math concepts down (gee wonder how that happened). So here we are doing 6th grade math and she struggles so much. Her work is sloppy so then she makes mistakes and struggling remembering formulas. She has been allowed to write sloppy so long that it's like pulling teeth to get her to write neat, she thinks I'm nit picking.
Here's my dilemma, some days I am so ready to send her back to school for two reasons:
1. she wants to go and makes sure everyone knows it, about 2 months ago we had a crying fit for two days off and on about school.
2. Math is not a strong subject for me, I have been able to help her with the exception of one lesson plan, I could not. I'm in need of a math program that will walk us both step by step. I use Abeka right now.
