Ok, my dd is 8. We used AO Year 1 (partly) and a similar CM curriculum from Higher Up and Further In Year 1 (partly). We began HIFI Year 2 in September and completed term 1, we have switched gears and she's doing Rod and Staff Year 2 right now due to a difficult toddler. We are eager to get back to our CM studies, but I'm struggling with whether to return to HIFI Year 2 or jump ship and follow the SCM guide. HIFI has been a great resource for learning about CM, but the load is HEAVY! Many of the books are very difficult (Pilgrim's Progress, Shakespeare, etc.), the additional reading is too difficult for her on her own. The SCM looks more manageable and I love the guides that are available and the idea of combining kids. I have a 5 yr old ds and a 1.5 yr old dd and we are hoping for one more blessing.
I guess my question is what module of SCM should I choose? We've begun Middle Ages (briefly) thus far, though I'm not necessarily opposed to repeating some things. The SCM literature selections look more doable, too.
I appreciate your responses.
