Extra curricular activities....socializing activities....etc?

Posted by   + Show Post

What extra curricular activities aside from the basic subjects will your kids participate in this year? Also what type of socialization do they get?




I plan on have my kids do PE every day. We have a basket ball goal set up which they LOVE to play with. They also have bikes. My boys will also play soccer starting in August. Then my oldest wants to try basket ball this winter. Our homeschool group also meets once a week for PE. I also am thinking about teaching them music. Especially since my oldest son LOVES music and wants to play the guitar and the violin. (I wonder how hard it would be for me (someone without experience) to teach them how to play. I figured I could start by teaching them how to read music...which I learned in school. And then I could get a started book for the instraments the choose. Guess we shall see how that goes LOL. My aunt also will give my kids riding lessons once a week. And I am hoping art lessons once a week. I myself will have art with them once a week as well! 

As far as socializing goes I feel confident they will get plenty. They will attend Sunday school and Church every Sunday. Starting in Sept they will also attend the Awana program every Sunday afternoon. Then they will have their sports etc. We also are joining a homeschool group. We go to church with many of the family's so we already know them well. They meet once a week. And they have field trips once or twice a month. My oldest son also will start music therapy in the coming weeks to work with him on some of the issues he struggles with. So overall I think they will get plenty of interaction...what do you think LOL

 you could learn how to play the guitar together(thats how i taught my kids), also check at your church someone there might be interested to show him or the others how to play an instrument( my kids learned violin, mandolin, piano, drums, bass from members of our church! )
