Re: Starting home schooling after a bad start to the school year at public school
I got this Saxon set from christian book distributors. Not that it will help you right now, but they run 40% off in the spring (for future reference if it works for you).

The library didn't have as much as I had hoped. They had a learning resource person who is an ex-teacher as well and she suggested a book called "write ahead" which I have never heard of. When I looked at the time4learning site, my dd said it was the same as compass odyssey, which she has the password for from ps.
As for the grammar, we just use the free handbook. We're going through it pretty quickly, so I will supplement with this free Kindle book. I plan to introduce diagramming at that point.
