Yes...I agree with do need a individual classes they can show their stuff in! lol.

I think that as homeschoolers, we need to stop comparing our methods and children's grade level to the school system. No system is perfect...even the best schools are not we need to teach our individual children. No homeschooling kid should ever flunk a class. Why? Because we don't have to move on...we don't have to worry about the year ending. We are not on the same schedule or have the same goals as the school system. If you read the curriculum going from grade level to grade level, you will notice that much is the same. So, I don't think it would be unusual for kids of different ages to be on the same page.

My daughter is great in math but struggled with long division. Had she been in school, she would have had poor grades and probably never mastered it. However, since she is homeschooled, it allowed me and her the freedom to have it taught at her pace. She has now mastered it. On her own accord, she is starting 6th grade math over again, just to prepare for 7th grade next year. She wanted to be sure that she had everything down. She will be, on her own accord, working through summer on math. Is she perfect and wonderful? Yes. LOL. But this decision came from knowing she is not confined to a grade or class...she learns to master material and not pass a course. Let's teach our children to master material. Even if it does take a bit longer..or goes a bit faster...or puts them in a weird grade level. No levels in homeschooling...just learning.

I have a 10 and 12 year old. They share history and science...always have..I made sure of that. It makes my life easier! lol. I do not share math...even if they were in the same grade I would not. Not that I see anything wrong with it...but they learn differently and need something a bit different. Also, I didn't want the issue of one thinking the other was behind. That happened when I allowed them to share spelling and my younger one thought it was strange that his older sister and him had the same spelling.

Fractions are a tough thing for kids. Funny...because it really is easy. Have you tried Life of Fred? I loved it. I have heard good things about Teaching Textbooks also...but I haven't used it. My daughter is working on Alpha Omega math now and loves it. I don't care for it...but it really works for her. Oh and math u see is great for fractions.

I am working with the Keys to Fractions with two of my kids. They road block last year and this year. I am hoping to get them over the hump. How many of you have two kids doing the same grade. My 10 year old and 13 year old are doing the same math. She is fast he is slow. She thinks it is terrible that he is behind. and gives me grief. What about the rest of you?
