First day of "formal" home schooling starts today.
So today the public schools in Michigan start, and so we will start my 5 year old on her school work today, too!
I have had a hard time feeling at peace about either option, full day kindergarten or home school. The only half day K option in our area is at a local private school. But I know the teacher for K-2 grade and I just get the most awful vibe from her. So that is out.
I looked into sending Scarlett to the public school for art, music, gym and computers. One school is maxed out at 29 kids in each class, and I just don't feel comfortable sending her there. I checked with another school, and they have much smaller class sizes. 20-25 kids in each class. They said they will be happy to have her for the specials, as long as they don't get full up this week. And a woman that I know from play groups is now teaching Kindy there! So I requested she be in her room. She is also doing dance and girl scouts.
So that is where we are at, and I actually somewhat feel at peace about this. I think I am just nervous about teaching her everything she needs to learn this year.
Anybody else get nervous when they started home schooling?
