Zion, our 12 year old son, is always floating between two grade levels. This year is no different as he is working on both 6th and 7th grade level curricula. This may be the easiest time to have a kid who vacillates between levels because he's a middle schooler. At this point in our homeschooling, he can simply do any curriculum labeled "middle school" or "6th-8th grade."
Our selections include software, texts, and workbooks. Some are repeats of old favorites just leveled up (Teaching Textbooks, Words Roots) and some are new (Editor In Chief, Science Detective). So far, I'm pleased with everything we chose. I've also changed up how I do my lesson plans. I'll be sure to share that soon in another post.
