Please help! My frustration is running high . I was almost finished with planning our school year (using the wonderful planner and after viewing the DVDs - Thanks SCM!!) when upon closer inspection of the science I had planned for dd starting high school I found the program a little too intense for a first year high school course. We have been doing science as a family, but, due to CFS and other health issues I have decided that science can be mother-guided/independent this year. Because of the lack of formal science I was planning on using Apologia Physical Science to ease her into high school. I have our science scheduled 4xweek for 30minutes but I have no clue if this is enough for this science course. We school using 12 week terms if that helps.
We are not new to HS...just trying to simplify and follow my heart that I am truly a CM type mom! You all are great. I read the posts regularly and your encouragement is priceless! I have learned so much and thank God that I have found this site...Thanks to all who post and to the SCM team!!!
I have a tendency to try to schedule too much...do too much, etc. I have tried so many things and spent a lot of money all to come back to the more gentle approach - then I question my self again I am a slow learner...
Any help would be greatly appreciated...we are to start Aug. 31st and I would dearly love to be ready!
