But what program to use? Religion always gets a little sticky. Our family is LDS/Mormon and sometimes what is taught in a christian program doesn't match up with our beliefs. I suppose every homeschool parent runs into the same problem no matter what their beliefs are. When choosing a program, what it comes down to is how much time you are willing to spend tweaking a program to fit your family.
Christian studies from Memoria Press fits the bill as it is more about becoming familiar with the stories and events rather than spiritual teachings. Since 11yo and I do this program together tutor style, it is easy for me to insert my thoughts during a lesson about differences in interpretation which might pop up.
I think the hardest thing for me to get used to was the illustrations in the Golden Children's Bible. They are so different from the style used in our church.
Suggested schedule from Memoria Press:
Christian Studies I - 3rd grade
Christian Studies II - 4th grade
Christian Studies III - 5th grade
Christian Studies IV (review of I-III) - 6th grade
We are currently coming towards the end of Christian Studies I. We are doing one lesson per week with the goal of finishing I-III before 11yo begins early morning seminary when she is 14.
