K12 Independent Homeschool Curriculum Review
by Melissa B.
(NE Georgia, USA)
Our family uses K12 Independently. I love it! I have been using K12 homeschool curriculum for 3 yrs. I started my oldest on K12 when he was Kindergarten age and we now are in 2nd grade. When my youngest gets to the Kindergarten level, he too will be started using this curriculum.
K12 is rigorous, challenging, but fun for your child. K12 really gives the child "Core Knowledge" that is needed for education. When we finish with each lesson, there is assessment test after each lesson. Once your child takes the assessment after the lesson, the next day or even at the end of the week, you know whether or not your child really mastered what was really taught by you and the assignments given. If the child did poorly, it tells you what areas the child needs to go back over and get extra practice in.
K12 has been so helpful with my busy schedule. I don't have to worry about coming up with lesson plans for each subject each week, or month, it is provided on the "OLS" (Online Lesson Service). Yes granted, you have to pay for this service for each month, BUT it is well worth it! It is well worth the money, knowing my children will be getting a good base "core knowledge" of education!
K12 is little costly, but what homeschool curriculum isn't? Can you really put a price tag on your child's education? Yes, don't get me wrong… we all love "cheaper the better", but you learn to hunt for bargains on auction sites and there is also a K12 used-curriculum site so you can save money on the books and materials.
Just my two cents, I hope this helps anyone struggling with their current homeschool curriculum they dislike, or would like to try something new for the new school year.
Happy Homeschooling :)
