In Reply to: 4 yr old which curriculum? posted by Micah on March 7, 2011 at 12:09 pm:

I have used Heart of Dakota with my gifted 4 year old and she loves it. They have a chart to place your child at the correct level and you can try the first week of lessons from downloading off their website to see if it will work for your family. I have used the first 4 levels and really like it as have my children. YOu can modify any subject you want or substitute and it has the plans all laid out for you. I've also used the Rusty and Rosy software program from the Waterford Research Institue and my daughter loved it. She jumped from pre-k to 1st grade level within months and is reading now at the age of 4 almost 5. It is an excellent program. I've used alpha-omega (Horizons, Lifepacs and SOS) and I definitely like the Heart of Dakota better. You need to decide what fits your child and your style best though. Different things are important to each family. Even though I like Heart of Dakota best I do have one child that likes the LIfepacs better as she loves workbooks and can't get enough of them. She hates art and hands on activities and finds them a waste of time. My son doesn't understand her at all. I have 5 children and I've had them all doing different curriculum at times to match what they each needed. Try to find out what will best meet your child's needs.
