So, what do you do with an advanced reader?My oldest is eight, and I recently realized that he reads at about a high school level. While I'm delighted on one level, I'm realizing that this creates a new problem. How much should I monitor his reading?...more
On occasion, I've been drawn into discussions with people who are not involved with homeschooling. If they do not understand how homeschooling works, I attempt to answer their questions cordially. It seems, however, that some assume my children never leave the house or see the world....more
"The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart, a good conscience and a sincere faith." 1 Timothy 1:5 (ESV)As I start this blog I have to keep reminding myself that the main goal I have in even doing this is serving the LORD. If it does not serve Him then why do I even bother....more
Charles Dickens and his enduringly popular tales really remind me of Christmastime and have become a part of our homeschooling schedule, for this time of year. The obvious connection here would be with Dickens’ story, A Christmas Carol. This year another movie adaptation of the story has been released, by Disney – the story lives on and is relevant for people in our modern age, just as it was for people during the Victorian Era.
When I sat down to try and develop my son's curriculum this year I was stumped. I knew I couldn't afford to my a "curriculum in a box" so I needed to be creative! I mean just last week I ... maybe, last month... Oh, I've got it! About two months ago... Okay, so I'm not creative. Sue me or send HELP, either way.
This is my first attempt at blogging so forgive my newbieness.
I am the proud mother of three children ages 8,6, and 4. The oldest is a boy and the other two girls.
I wanted to share my homeschooling journey which seems to differ from so many out there. The choice to homeschool was not an easy one for me. I was a mom who was working mom, with little desire to not follow the traditional send your kids off in the morning and help with homework in the afternoon. That was until I understood what that meant for my kids.
These projects can be seen at my homeschool blog: http://4kiddosathome.blogspot.com, but I thought I would post it here too, for your enjoyment! :)
This is a project I decided to conduct:
so here i am on the phone with this woman i have met once - thanx to my son needing to socialize, he's homeschooled....this is our 3rd conversation, phone, and i just can not say anything - SWEAR TO YOU - this entire conversation has consisted of 'uh, huh', 'wow', 'um hmm', for an hour now....i begged my son to call his friend (the mom is who i'm talking to) to tell him one simple ass thing - but no, now i'm stuck on the phone - I literally now her entire family heritage, right now she is discussing her grandfathers scotish ancestors....are you friggin kidding me???
