HI! I am just starting the adventure and am SO EXCITED! I have wanted to homeschool since I had my first child 20+ years ago. Here I am starting over again with a 3 and 5 year old. I am a member of several groups online but CHICKEN people are the BEST! I wanted a place we could share ideas, curricula thoughts. PLEASE keep this FRIENDLY and no fussing please we all have the same goal with homeschooling even if we all do it a little different. Let me start by telling what I have been thinking about with mine. Really I started schooling my 5 year old before he could talk. He learned to count really early. Talked early and has not stopped LOL. He is a great reader already. We worked on the basics and he filled in the blanks. He may read on a fourth grade level. Reads everything..... So I am hoping my choice of Robinson Curricula will work well with him. I am not exclusively going to use that through the early years of school but seems like a really good idea. I would like to supplement some science earlier than they do and still not sold on Saxon Math.... but might try it. I have looked into other maths but they all seem to have some love hate relationships..... so trial and error might be the way to go with the math. I want to let the kids lead us with what they want to learn about too. I think that will make school more like an adventure. Please share websites you find useful, ideas, and what you are doing that WORKS for you and why? So many chicken people I meet are homeschooling and I have not found a thread on here for the PARENTS so lets start one!
