A homeschooling mommie of 3 here! 2nd year with my 7 year old, and she will be in 2nd grade. We just started using real curriculum, so would be interested to know if others use curriculum or just an "eclectic" method.

thanks!

Smile HomeschoolMom of 13 years

I love homeschooling! We have homeschooled for 13 years! Beginning our 14th year and last! We loved it..my children did very well and I am so proud of them. My oldest is now a mom..use to be a missionary overseas after graduating for a few years! My one son graduated last year..and my other son ..this is his last year! My older son is planning on college and the younger maybe technical school. We used about every curriculum out there. Even my children used differerent curriculums for the same grade! It is nice to be able to treat each as an individual. They learned in different ways. My two oldest were the type to read and see. My youngest was a hands-on-learning. So we all did that! If you can do hands on activities instead of just a book to look at, your child will enjoy
what he is learning and really enjoy it. And they won't forget it either. We did special projects as a family too. We started with the larvae and through each cycle til it became a beautiful Monarch butterfy. We watched them make their cocoon around themselves. And then we actually watched them come out of it and full of colors...so you know my children will remember their life cycle! Or learning the fractions by an "apple" pie! I will miss it so much!!!!!!! It really makes me sad!

Smile HomeSat For Highschool

I just wanted to share with you about HomeSat. We liked it. We didn't use it for all subjects. Some years alot..some not. I will say thattheir highschool courses
are great! They specialize in different areas and can teach them some of the harder concepts! Plus alot of the science programs show the experiments and you can just watch if you do not have the items..or do it right with the teacher.
The one who is a teacher of Physical Science keeps the kids laughing! Plus if your child does not understand theycan email their teacher! I taped a few years at a time cause you get alll subjects you want for the base price. I had three vcr's going each and everyday of the week. your child can work at his pace also!
Not a rep or anything like that..just wanted to share it with those here!
Happy Homeschooling! If anyone has a question on homeschooling or books you can email me and will try to help you if you need it!

Default Yes!!

I homeschool my 6 and 4 year old children. I am excited about this new journey as well. This is very new to me... especially since I am a trained and licensed teacher! I have had to unlearn a lot of the thought patterns of a school teacher. And since I don't have regular "assessments and guidelines" to follow it is hard for me to be sure that my child is doing well. But they are articulate, loving literature and enjoy learning... so what else could I ask for at their age, right? I have to keep repeating this to myself over and over .

It is very nice to connect with other homeschool moms and I hope that we can continue supporting one another in this forum

Have a blessed week!!!!

Question Howdy from Michigan

Just wondered if any of you Home schooled families have any suggestions for earning extra money for a 11-12 year old girl. She is currently dog walking. We don't have large church where she can meet prospective babysitting jobs....so we are wondering if there is any good ideas out there that we can tap into?

I'm a HS. My daughter is 6 and this is my 2nd 'official' yr of HSing but I've been doing it since day 1

I'm still trying to find what works best for us. I'm more eclectic than anything but find I still 'need' a more structered style at times. I either find things that are too expensive or not right for us.

I love find HS books/workbooks at garage sells!!!!!

Wow, lots of homeschool moms here! We are going to start our "school year" after labor day. It's a shame here, that the PS kids have to go in the middle of August!! around the 11th I think they have to go back to school!


So those that are schooling upper elementary as I am, ( 9 and 11 year old girls) what cirriculum are you using? Unschooling? formal at homeschooling? Well trained mind?

We are using the Charlotte Mason methods, utilizing an online cirriculum, available at ambleside.org.

It's going to be an exciting year for us, as this is our first year to try this out!

First thing that came to mind was babysitting, then pet sitting. My daughter (the 11 year old) has been doing odd jobs for older people we know. Helping with yard work, or tidying a house, always only for people we know very well.

She also has made some jewelry, and is in the process of buying supplies to make bath salts to sell.

I don't pay her to babysit her sister, there is only 20 months difference in them, but i do let her be "in charge" for short periods, like when I need to run to the store or whatnot.
