Our son is now five years old and is officially starting Kindergarten.
We have been homeschooling rather informally for about two years but we were looking for something a little more structured now that it was time for our son to officially start schooling.
When hubby mentioned we were using K12.com a few people expressed interest in knowing more about it so we decided to share our experience.
Signing up was a very simple process and required the completion of a few forms and provision of a few documents. The staff was very helpful in assisting us to complete our documents making the process very easy and stress free.
Once approved we quickly received our first emails with a short list of school supplies, a survey and our boxes full of books for each subject.
If you are following the Mensa Excellence in Reading Challenge, like we did, you will find many of these books familiar. We were also familiar with Writing Without Tears and have used some of their lower level books and their Apps. It also includes an All About Me workbook, a couple of guide books and an activity books.
It includes Snap Cubes, 2-D Shapes and Tessellations, along with a workbook and a hard cover book.
The History box includes two History books, several reading books and a map of the US/World.
This box includes several books we were also familiar with, two Student Guides, a Magnet and a inflatable globe.
|They called this the Keeper Box and we are expected to use the items from Kinder to 2nd grade|
This box includes a Acrylic Mirror, a Thermometer, a Magnifying Glass and a Cylinder.
This one includes a Dry Board Eraser, Black Dry Erase Marker, Blue Dry Erase Marker, Magnetic Board, Small Dry Erase Board, Phonics Binder, Basic Magnetic Pages w/Tiles and a Folding Magnetic Board.
The Phonics box includes several workbooks, some practice books and some sight words.
The music set includes a book, tambourine and some rhythm sticks.
The Art box includes a couple of books, some student pages and paintbrushes, oil pastels, clay, and a paint set.
I was also highly interested in having Spanish Class, but the classes they offer are not recommended until 3rd grade due to the fact that they are completely online and require a higher reading level. It would require an additional fee. I am still debating if we will go through with the official language class or just continue to practice his Spanish family style until he is in 3rd grade.
Our son was so excited he already started playing with with some of the boxes.
