New at home schooling but it is better for our family than the other secular choices.
Here is link to construction fall which is a bit difficult for the younger crowd;when my boys wer about 7/9 they had a blast with it and so did I !!
Many other games suitable for the youngest using color matching rather than math facts.
Cool I must go show my wife!
lol Becareful , I played as much as my kids!!
My wife has been a teacher for over thirty years here in California. She would highly recommend homeschooling over a public schools..
Are you homeschooling? I have the same feelings as your wife..... always have. I am only now able to homeschool.
I am guessing she does not like Common Core???? or is it bigger than that???
Mass only recently switched to common core. THe princliple is to cover a few topics in greater depth rather than touch a dozens in the previous years. Mass had refused to join in on the common core band wagon but finally caved.
IMO public school could be greatly improved if the teachers included the parents in the teaching process in a more formal way. Just told to help get homework done and keep the little ones reading is not enough. Fortunately I could wing it as I have some training in clicker training and training horses and training dogs and training seals. Training kids? I"ve been winging it!!! No classes or weekend clinics in that subject.
I just found this forum and thought I'd stop by to say Hello and show my support. My wife and I have home schooled our four children since day one. They are now 10, 11, 13, and 14. I was in charge of the morning session when they were little, but since my wife retired she pretty much does everything and I help with "motivation." We did it on our own using various curriculum instead of just one. Then my wife joined a home school co-op, Classical Conversations, and it has really enhanced the experience and given the children some classroom exposure and exposure to specialized instruction and labs one day a week. Homeschooling continues to benefit our family in ways we never even considered at the start.
