I’d love to know more about Euka too and if it might suit my 14 year old ASD daughter
I’m homeschooling but organise my own curriculum.I have a friend who uses Euka for her year 6 son.
It’s been recently revamped to mostly online I hear and used to come with mathsletics and Skype membership
If it’s still like the older program which was printable, you could purchase a term to trial it or a year. It had subject areas work for the school week with some sample assessment work. A lot of new homeschool families start with this. I am pretty eclectic snd I adapt things as my kids and family needs change.
During cov d lockdown I did more traditional book work than ever before just to cover and tick some boxes for registration.
Before that I mostly focused on phonics and literacy to get my girls literate with some numeracy. For the most part after that I would join in a lot of local homeschool groups activities, some are great at orgdniting excursions, sports activities or meet ups. I’d also look out for what free and on offer in the local community even during school holidays or special weeks like youth week we just had free skateboard lessons at the park recently which saved money and can count that as sports skills etc. libraries are great resources too. For history we visited a lot of historical houses like rouse hill and even during covid did a lot of online geography and history tours.
A good online resource you can follow is out school. It’s a USA based company I think but it also has specific online classes on many different topics which you can do as they’re usually recorded.
Also there’s a homeschool educational resource fb page that often gets deals for subscriptions of various things which can allow access for a much cheaper rate than buying as one family.
I use mystery science,
English stars (though that’s not cheap but it covers everything well)
Can use maths online as a support. I sometimes get together with a friend and Team up to do some of those interactive activities and we share subscription costs too.
My kids liked night zoo keeper which motivated th to want to write.
There’s heaps out there and it’s just a matter of giving thing a a try.
The other day miss 12 decided to write a letter to a friend and created an acrostic poem, did a table comparing what common interest they each shared and then also began writing the letter. I didn’t have to make to do this so I sneaked a photo or two to go into her evidence for registration. She did do this though during our formal learning tome but because I could see it was learning too I didn’t stop her and showed flexibility there.
Hope that helps! Make sure to check out local fb homeschool groups in your area snd things like science week etc units offer excursions some free some not but it all helps make it much more enjoyable!
I haven’t but I wish you luck with it . It’s so hard to find the right fit with schools . Interested to see others feedback on this
I think K R is homeschooling now. I’m not sure of the program she’s using though
