Connect The Thoughts™
is dedicated to creating methods and
complete homeschool and classroom curricula that will
truly make a hands-on, thorough education available.
We offer a secular, religion-friendly core curricula for
Currently we focus on and offer core curricula for home schoolers and schools broken into five groups; pre-literate students and ages 5-6 (STARTER), beginning literacy students and ages 7-8 (ELEMENTARY), literate students ages 9-10 (LOWER SCHOOL), literate students ages 11-up (UPPER SCHOOL); and literate continuing adult education (UPPER SCHOOL).
We do not offer a mathematics program. We feel there are many good math programs out there, and do not see the need to reinvent that wheel. Specifically, we have seen the Saxon Math program work very well for many students, using their levels 5/4; 6/5 and 7/6. We've observed these books (in their home schoolers' editions) teach basic mathematics effectively. We have seen students adept with and interested in mathematics do well with Saxon Algebra 1/2. Additionally, we've had good luck with AGS Publishing's Consumer Mathematics, also well-designed for home schooling.
