We just finished our third year of homeschool. Woo Hoo! I, like Kristie, am starting my planning for next school year this week. I have a question for anyone who can answer me. I am switching to Saxon Math for the first time. I bought Saxon 6/5 at a fair a few weeks ago (dirt cheap 🙂 ) for my will-be-fifth graders. Since then I have discovered that many people use the next grade up in Saxon (so the boys would use 7/6). Is this true? Or is that just for the overachieving types…which we are not 🙂 . I looked through the text book, and it does seem like a lot of review as opposed to new concepts, but I don’t know how much they will learn “new” from this point until they hit algebra. Does anyone have experience with Saxon? Will they be underchallenged? I am thinking about moving Izzy (the will-be-fourth grader) up with the boys in Math next year and this might make that transition easier. What do you think?
