In your Home and Homeschool
Happy Friday! We have been decluttering in the Master Bedroom this week. You deserve a peaceful place to rest. I hope you are pleased with the progress you made this week. Email a picture of your progress to me at Tami@TamiFox.com.
The boys and I are wrapping up our fourth week of this homeschool year. We have had fun, and we have learned new skills.
We are working with a different style of doing our school work using an App on a tablet. We have enjoyed the change, and as the teacher, I like how I review their daily work and check grades. Everything is done within the app. I have a subscription fee for it, but it is worth it for me.
What are you using this year for your homeschool?
Over the years, I have used the unit study method, and I have had years we used just textbooks. Some years we used a mix of DVD’s and books. I love the variety and freedom I have to choose what works for my family. We are not a one size fits all type of family, and I love that I can choose curriculum based on our needs.
What are you doing for supplemental activities this year?
On social media, I have enjoyed seeing the different ways my homeschool friends have started their school year and the activities they are enjoying. I am a part of a homeschool group and a homeschool field trip group. Both of these groups plan monthly events, and it gives me some variety in my school week to have a field trip planned.
If you have not started your school year, don’t worry about those of us who started earlier. Each of us has our own rhythms and ways of doing things. I like having some flexible time in the fall when the weather is cooler to take off a day here and there. I also like being finished with my school year before the end of May. But I have had years where it was better to start my homeschool year after Labor Day.
Enjoy your weekend and do something as a family.
