Welcome back for another month of Teaching Together.
Being labeled a home school mom sets you up for A LOT of questions. From my thoughts on learning to read clear up to what we plan to do in the high school years. But my favorite question has to be the “WHY?!” Which usually comes with an “are you crazy” expression on their face. However the most common of all the questions I get asked or emailed about is what curriculum we use.
Here is what we have planned for the 2016/2017 school year!
When it comes to choosing homeschooling curriculum you really have two choices. You can by something all-inclusive *bleck* (can you tell I’m not a fan of this method) or you can piece things together on your own. I have always gone with this second choice and here is why.
It saves money
You have more variety
Its less monotonous
It’s easier to customize your curriculum to the way your child learns.
At the end of it all I am sure that both methods are effective. But, everyone has their opinion so I thought why not share mine. It is my blog after all :P.
I also plan to add in a few electives that will alternate daily.
These will include things like “computer lab” time, art, yoga, and typing.
02:00-02:30 Art/ Creative Play/ Yoga
My goals for our school year are to have way too much fun, finish our books in a timely manner, and hopefully not bomb achievement tests at the end of the year.
That is all.
I kind of am too but where I may thrive on goals, that kind of pressure on a kindergartener just isn’t needed.
This will be my first year of officially schooling two kids.
I’m nervous and excited.
Pray for me friends.
