Homeschooling

IMG_4399This year we are homeschooling both kids. We have decided to try BJU Press Homeschooling, everything is laid out, lesson plans, hands on experiments, a lot of involvement and I needed some guidance, so I also get my consultant with Homeworks by Precept all year! Such a blessing.

 

 

 

Our daughter has started 7th Grade, we have a middle schooler! Where has the time IMG_4470gone!?  She is really enjoying this school year, understanding a lot, learning those study skills, and of course life skills while being home. We are proud of her, she has really came back out of her shell since being homeschooled! We love seeing her personality shine more. She has 5 subjects this school year: Literature, Writing & Grammar, Math, Science and World History. We decided against Bible this year due to her amount of work and huge adjustment to 7th Grade material.

Our son has started 2nd Grade, he has around 6 subjects: Spelling, Math, History/Science (we alternate these subjects after every chapter), Reading, Handwriting, and English. We started out listening to videos with Distance Learning Online with him but we have figured out to transition to Parent-Led, which goes so much smoother for both of us.

 

 

Here’s to new beginnings, new friends, new field trips, new faces, one day at a time.

*Blows the dust off*

Ya’ll, I am excited to come back. I am sure the friends I have met on here have all took many breaks as well. I know I sure did. Life has been extra busy, and I have enjoyed being able to let go and breathe.

This year, we have started in August with homeschooling our oldest. It was time. I have always been on the fence, and now I can finally say we made the best decision. She is almost a 12 year old, yep, we have TWEEN.

She has been bullied for two years, and I am sure she thought she was doing the right thing everyday for those two years. I can honestly say she tried every method to feel like she did the right thing, but her spirit was broken. She no longer enjoyed the things she use to, and now.. Now, she is back. She is smiling, she is becoming herself again.

We are using All-In-One Homeschool, Easy Peasy, we are enjoying it. I am able to lay out her subjects in Google Classroom, and help her remotely if needed. She can also ask questions in Google Classroom, so I am able to help her, and she doesn’t feel like she doesn’t know the answer.

Over the last few years we have discovered her ADHD, she is hyperactive, but inattentive. She struggles with staying focused, losing papers, so now I have a system in place where she has visual reminders her of what is suppose to happen and when. She is not 100% online, I do make her write. I also have notebook that incorporate her will to learn. It has the same questions as her Google Classroom, but this is so she can easily follow along.

She is was also diagnosed with High Functioning Autism. She doesn’t understand social cues, sarcasm, or other “hidden agendas”. Just have to be blunt with her for her to understand or follow anything. You have to set timers for chores, and redirect constantly, but we all are learning here.

In the upcoming days or weeks I will sharing with you what we read, where we go, what we do. I have a love to share memories, and encourage others to do what you think is best for your family. So, I hope to meet other homeschoolers in the vast of the universe, and build my “friends” again. I truly missed keeping everyone up to date.
