About the author

Then I became an accidental homeschooler, totally thrown into it in a manner I did not expect and had to hit the ground running fast a couple of months into her school year. I used different curriculums from different companies for the subjects, because I wanted to pick and choose what I felt best met her needs in each area. And I bought this to make sure I could fill in the gaps and reinforce certain key topics. So I used this for supplemental reading for her, and I myself read through the pages. I think it does a great job of touching the bases of the topics needed to be covered for that year, and I imagine that something like this could be used as a base on which you could build your overall teaching efforts off of. I don't think this alone is completely enough to account for an entire year worth of education or activities, but it can definitely help fill in a lot of pieces if you're not sure what to cover on your own if you need it to.
