Here at Timberdoodle we were so excited to get this letter from one of our long-time customers who has been working with Living Hope International in Zambia. With her permission we are delighted to share with you how she has used Timberdoodle materials in this exciting venture!
I’m new to your company, and am transitioning from a very unstructured unschooling approach to something more structured. I have an 11-year-old son who is very bright, catches on quickly to things, reads voraciously, but has been unschooled. I’m looking at your complete curriculum packages, and am thinking I might choose the 5th grade package for him . . . but I’m not sure exactly how to make the decision.
I’m wondering, though, about what feels to me like an increasing number of DVD/computer-style resources that “replace” parental involvement (like Sequential Spelling). Yes, homeschooling parents are busy, but isn’t spending time with your kids as they learn a major part of the whole point? What is your perspective on this?
