Growing up the only homeschoolers I knew were... well, you know, really dorky and socially inept and awkward. Don't pretend you don't know what I'm talking about.
After getting married, I got to be friends with a truly normal lady at church. I was kinda shocked when I found out she had been home-schooled. (Sorry, Amy!) I have met a fair amount of normal homeschooling families since being married, and have started considering it as a viable option for my own kids. (We will most likely do a half day in local schools, and supplement with home-school.)
Fast forward to my current situation: Ladybug is two and a half. I have decided to begin doing some structured "preschool" with her at home three mornings a week. Definitely not anything fancy. Working on numbers and shapes (letters too in the future), fine and gross motor skills, art projects, music and singing. We just started this week, and I feel really good about it, but I have some home-school questions (mostly thinking towards the future):
- How do you design your daily schedule?
- What curriculum/materials do you use or recommend?
- How do you home-school more than one child at a time?
So, there's my backwards Works For Me Wednesday-- can you tell me what works for you???
