    Default Oak Meadow 6th or 7th grade

    Has anyone used Oak Meadow for 6th or 7th grade. I am interested in picking something new for next year but have had a hard time finding reviews on the curriculum. Good or Bad- let me know if you have used.

    Thanks in advance-

    I'm looking at the 6th grade, and probably would have just bought it already, but I was hoping to do US History this year.

    My only experience with Oak Meadow was with 8th grade LA. I switched my daughter to it at Christmas her 8th grade year after a difficult fall (for me: emotionally/personally difficult) where my usual "make it up as I go" LA plan fell apart. My daughter LOVED Oak Meadow, and I would have used their high school products with her if she hadn't decided to return to a more traditional school.

    Oak Meadow us writing heavy, however, and my son (6th grade) is a struggling writer, so I'm conflicted. I'm considering doing 6th grade science and 5th grade language arts and history and APoS pre-algebra. I'm looking for samples first, though.

    I've used Oak Meadow with my son exclusively (after I finally admitted to myself I was going insane trying to piece together something on my own). 4th, 6th, 7th finishing up right now, and 8th waiting in the wings. It is, generally, a writing and reading heavy curriculum. However, it's easily adjusted to suit your child. That lesson asks for a 1-page report, but your child is struggling with writing? Do the research and notes phase like normal, then have them put together a poster or digital presentation to convey the requested information (as an example). And if you're usingit independently, who says you need to make your child do every single assignment? Adjust as needed.

    (Here I would like to point out that I have the 6th grade kit listed for sale in the secular swap forum. Hint hint nudge nudge)
