First year homeschooling my boys?
He also participated in the Kraft Great Kids Reading Program via our neighborhood library, along with numerous other activities. We had a fun homeschooling year and plan to have an even more fun one this year.
For the 5yo we got very basic books, and he plays a lot at www.starfall.com a phonics site.
We like to go to the park to do school work and to get siblings out of the eldest hair. We do field trips as often as possible. And we don’t allow everything school to take over our lives. By that I mean if it doesn’t all get done everyday we don’t stress out over it. You have to keep it relaxed and fun by doing what your kids enjoy.
We call housework life skills and sorting dishes or cooking math. We call doing laundry math science and reading (sorting, chemical reactions, and reading wash tags)! You just have to figure out what works for you and how to keep it fun while keeping up with your home. That has been the biggest challenge for me.
Home schooling can work for some. The student needs to be self disciplined enough to do the work and care. Generally less work is involved with an online charter school than in a regular public school. You are also able to work at your own pace. k12 will customize your curriculum and make sure you are where you need to be.
This is the school my other children are now attending,
Depending on where you live they may be a help, if not, there are online charter schools all over.
They will provide you with the computer, printer, supplies and books that you need as well as teachers and academic advisors. This is the same as a public school but ONLINE at home. They will also help you with any state required testing that you may need. There are teachers to help you as well by email and phone,
If you choose not to use a virtual school , yes you can still purchase k12 products. http://v7.k12.com/independence.html……
