I have two higher grade students - 8th and 9th graders.
My children had their last day at public school on Oct. 29th and we "officially" became a homeschooling family on Nov. 2nd. On that day we went to the "Teacher Store" and I bought a bunch of workbooks that were related to the subjects they had been studying in school.
So far things are going well. I have a few concerns, of course, but I think we can work through it all.
I was wondering...
In Michigan we have to include reading, spelling, math, science, history, civics, literature, writing, and English grammar. I bought them both books related to their grades for Algebra, grammar, science, and history.
How much time do you make your children "focus on schoolwork"? Michigan is a no-ask, no-tell state but I still would like to record what we're studying and when. Any suggestions on that?
What websites do you use to fill in all the blanks? Looking to see how we can make sure we cover all that we have to.
Thanks so much!!
Proud mother of four great kids!
