Summer Homeschool

I have always wanted to homeschool because of the chaos that I went through while attending public schools. Though I had no clue where to begin, how to get the materials needed for homeschooling, or if I was smart enough to teach them what they need to know in order to pass state exams...

Last year I decided to at least try helping our youngest son learn some math concepts with the use of toys before he started kindergarten, and it worked out pretty well. So now I want to try homeschooling over the summer, with all of my children...

I have found some great sites online that offer free resources for homeschoolers to go with a ton of worksheets and reading books which the kids brought home from school. Not to mention some awesome videos I found on youtube.

I am still in the beginning stages. I need to set up a schedule and try to make this as fun as possible. After all, this is still summer vacation. So if anyone has any advice I am willing to listen emoticon :smile:

Good for you. You will find it to be a wonderful and rich experience for both you and your children.

I loved our family's home schooling experience. We incorporated a lot of travel into our curriculum, since my husband often had contracts in other states. We also took field trips closer to home. There was not much on the internet back in the 1980's when we had our home school, and very few materials home schoolers enjoy today had been written yet back then.

Sounds like a lot off fun and aggravation all in one ☺
11 years ago there was very little information on homeshooling, and what was there required fees. Now there all sorts of free resources and I have collected a lot, though I am still afraid of moving forward.

Consider it the beginning of a great adventure, which it is. It grows on you as you gain confidence.
