The Homeschool Mothers’ Journal:
Where I have finally made decisions!
In my life this week: I found out my curves in my spine have increased a bit. And I need to strengthen my core muscles. And the best: I finally got my hubby to be on board with homeschooling!
In our homeschool this week: Well, I have always thought of myself as a homeschooler, but now I finally got my hubby to see my side of the PS vs. HS debate. In other areas- Miss Pooh has really improved her writing numbers. She has also read a couple of the Magic Tree House books. And now that it is official that I will homeschooling her in the fall, I am at odds with what to use for several areas. Know that means? SHOPPING!
Helpful homeschooling advice: don’t copy school at home! I tried that last year with Miss Pooh and it went well sometimes, but I have learned that if she wants to sprawl on the floor that’s fine. If she want to lay upside down on couch to read a book, that is fine too!
Favorite thing this week: getting hubby on board with homeschooling! And figuring out what Miss Pooh wanted to learn about.
Things I am working on: Okay, I think this one will be the longest part. I am working on figuring out what we will be covering in history and science as well as in what order. We love lapbooks, but I don’t want to do a lapbook for everything because one of use might get burned out on them. I have a spelling/vocabulary book that Miss Pooh is working on and will continue in the new school year. So, I am in the process of going through my files and out what I want to do each month in a different folder, so when the time comes I can print out what I need to. I am hoping that this will save me a lot of time. Especially since I will be going to school online at the same time.
Something I have my eye on: I know that it is super expensive, but I have been eyeing the language arts with readers from Sonlight.
