One of the challenges I have faced with the home school process is what to teach and what curriculum works best. I am such a product of public school that for now I am aiming for the more traditional approach much like my daughter would learn in a public classroom. This idea has proved to be more challenging than I thought in gathering materials to accomplish the goals without spending a lot of money. As I research, study, read blogs and other home school helps I am slowly coming up with a plan. So far I have only settled on a science curriculum. Thankfully the university library nearby has textbooks used by the local school system that can be checked out by homeschooling families. These textbooks are what we are using as I decide on a program and purchase the necessary materials. With time maybe I can post my choices for my daughter's school and what schedule works best for us. I was hoping to plan a 4 day schedule and am still working out the details.
My prayer is that with time we will be on a regular schedule, learning the things a fifth grader needs to know and experiencing life in a wonderful and special way.
May your day be filled with joy and quiet, peaceful thoughts.
