Hello, Moms! My name is Ashley. I have a preschooler, who is 4 years old and a public schooled kindergartener. I am currenlty trying to learn as much as I can about homeschooling so I can make a decision as to if  I want to homeschool next year or not.  I do a little bit of preschool homeschooling with my 4 year old, but I need to learn about the real deal! I have no idea where to even start, so I am hoping I can learn from reading this forum.

My name is Shelly. I'm a 20y/o mom of an 11 month old. My brothers and I were homeschooled until 2007. I finished high school and had DD. I decided even before I finished high school that I would homeschool my DD. I am even more sure now about it since she's the brightest kid I've ever met and The System will most definately stifle that. While in The System, I literally felt myself being dumbed down. I can no longer read at a college level and I have a greatly diminished interest in learning.

I'm currently covering basics with my daughter, and she has already shown great interest in reading, pictures, and drawing. I'm very proud of her. I'm trying to start my own business this year so I can work from home to to have the time to teach her.

 Welcome to the group Alie. At those ages learningshould be fun & engaging for them. Sing & dancing, do crafts, play games & cooking are all great ways for them to learn & have fun learning.

Quoting Alie1313:

Hi everyone my name is Alissa and I have a 3 yr old son and a 2 yr old daughter who I would like to educate as much as possible. I have started working with them in 4 languages with numbers and colors and basic words but I don't know what else to be working with them with I try to do the alphabet with my son and he starts yelling "don't say that word" which i don't understand but ok i guess it will come in time.  I want to give them every advantage I can as far as education and i believe much of the public school time is wasted where they could learn form real life as well as books if I tech them. 

A little background on me I am going back to school to finish my AA in Automotive Tech and I will also be pursuing  massage school in the near future.  I am a former truck driver and now stay at home mom. I work 24 hours a week for my mother as her personal care giver helping her clean and shop but recently I feel like I need to incorporate more structure into a school system for the kids and myself to keep us focused because i find there are days that i forget to do their learning activities with them and i feel bad when that happens. I am just guessing at where to begin with teaching them but i am hoping this group gives me a bit more guidance.

 Welcome to the group, my family is also an unschooling/child led learning family.

Quoting learn4ever:

Hello. I am also a unschooling newbie with 3 children, 15, 9, and 4 years old. We have been on this fantastic new path since May of this year and are now looking for some support from new friends. 

My oldest sings and is still involved in choir/theater at the local high school, while my 9 year old loves LEGO's, reading, and playing out his elaborate games/stories. As for my youngest, she seems to be along for the ride, loving every minute of being with her siblings sharing in their fantastic adventures.

We are a family who loves to hang out at the library and take a lot of field trips, and we would love to have some friends to join in the fun!

 Welcome Janeen, feel free to make post & ask all the questions or if you have time reading past post might answer some of your more basic questions.

Quoting Simply_Janeen:

Hi! My name is Janeen and I'm a homeschooling mom to Natalie who is seven and in first grade. I also have an almost two and a half year old and I hope to start homeschooling her soon as well.

I'm looking for information on units. My daughter has been enrolled in Connections Academy since the start of the school year. It's not working out so I'm going to be withdrawing her when the break ends and going on my own. I'm a little nervous but very excited because I'll really have more choices in what she learns. But like I said, I'm looking for lots of ideas and advice. Thanks!
