We are two days into our new school curriculum and it is going great! When I say that our curriculum is eclectic, it is not an exaggeration. We have put together a curriculum that looks chaotic, but instead it works very well for us. And our kids are loving it! They are actually having fun, which is a huge step for us, especially our oldest, who absolutely hates school. Here is a sample of our daily schedule:
10am- Math (www.allinonehomeschool.com) We use 1st grade math for our 5 year old and Pre Algebra for our 13 year old.
11:15- History (www.allinonehomeschool.com) We do this subject together. We are studying Geography
11:45- Science (www.allinonehomeschool.com) We also do this subject together. We are studying Zoology
12:15- Spelling (www.spellingcity.com) They each work on their spelling words independently
1:30- Phys Ed (either Yoga or Zumba together as a group)We pick videos from Youtube.
2:00- Reading. 13 year old is really struggling in this class so we spend 15 minutes each day with him reading me a story. While he is reading to me, 5 year old plays on http://www.starfall.com. The last 15 minutes of class, our 13yo plays on http://www.learn4good.com while our 5yo reads to me from (www.allinonehomeschool.com) We use Getting Ready 2, but only for the reading.
This is just our starting off point. I am sure along the way, we will find other things to add/delete or change. In the meantime, we our having fun learning 🙂
