|This picture has nothing to do with this post, but I found it on my camera and thought it was funny. Oh and by the way, we love Singapore Math. My oldest is just not a fan of math in general.|
I haven't been posting much about homeschooling lately and I think that is because everything is just kind of chugging along. Nothing overly exciting is happening. I am not stressing out over curriculum or deficiencies in my girls' learning. I don't have anything new to report. We are just happily using what we have found works in our homeschool; Writing Strands, Singapore Math , First Language Lessons , Growing with Grammar, Story of the World , English from the Roots Up , Real Science 4 Kids , Live Mocha, Individual spelling lists, reading good books...
My girls have their daily lists and come to me when they have questions. I spend about an hour and a half every morning fielding questions. With 3, it seems like someone always needs help, but it is manageable. Then I actively teach and lead discussions for another hour and a half. Usually the girls have some work to finish up after lunch and then I have my afternoons to do household stuff while the girls play with the neighborhood kids.
So.. If you are a new homeschooler or thinking about homeschooling, you just need to stick it out for 7 years and it will be great.
