If you could would your day go?

the link above has a listof different ways to homeschool

For my son we mixed it up. We had groups of homeschoolers that we met up with, 2 days a week, and thats where we did the montessori/waldorf approach to learning

the other two days were more structured. Working on fine motor skills, and language arts, as well as basic math is something important to me that we do. So for those two days we had a loose schedule where we would do activities together.

his age is 6, so this fall will be second grade

  • mimkjw, you gave me a good laugh this morning.

    OP, this is our first year with home-schooling. We do not have a set schedule, but average about 3 hours a day.

    We are on a waiting list for a co-op.

  • Oh, jeez...
    I'd probably have a daily schedual.
    8am breakfast and dressed
    9am start math
    930am pull hair out
    10am give up on math and try history
    1030 Put kids in time out for fighting
    1045 attempt finishing history
    11am snack and stretch time
    1130 spelling and grammer
    1230 lunch and break for mom to go scream into a pillow
    130 geography time
    2pm another time out...and probably yelling by this point
    215 try again to finish the 5 interupted assignments from the day
    300pm Give up and send the kids outside to play

    5pm...scream at hubby whos just got home about how crazy we were to try this!! LMAO

    My hats OFF to all moms who homeschool. I COMPLETELY agree with it and have more respect than I can express...but I think it would kill me. LMAO

  • oh my, lol you would give your kids a lot of schooling time.

    Realistically most homeschoolers I know max out at 3 hours of curriculum just because it's mostly one on one so easier to teach than say a whole class, and your kid, if given one on one time will excel way faster than you think.

  • I didnt know that. I knew homeschooled children seem to be better educated...and quite frankly, more well rounded, respectful...then the general population of pulic schooled children, but I just assume I wouldnt have the patience for it.

    Plus, DH is against it. We dont see eye to eye on it...because I completely agree with home schooling, just not for us! LOL
