See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Hi there. My name is Dawn, and I've just joined this group. I have a 4-1/2 year old (& a 13mo old), and we are moving to Angola, Africa in approximately 1 month, and plan to stay about 2 years. There are only 2 schools there taught in English, and they are extremely expensive (around $20k/yr), so I am thinking I need to homeschool ds so that he will be ready for 1st or 2nd grade when we return to the US. I am terrified of homeschooling bc I'm very undisciplined (although I went to college for 13 years). I am assuming I can get some materials/curricula online, but feel I should gather whatever concrete materials I can before we leave. What would you do if you were me? Just getting book rec's for how to determine learning style etc. made my eyes glaze over and I started to panic.... Thanks so much for any advice!
