Our third teenager will be homeschooling high school soon and it has me doing a lot of soul-searching! His older brothers will be rising seniors and I don’t want to repeat the mistakes I made with them. While our approach to high school hasn’t changed, I’ve learned some things that will make the journey smoother this time.
Here’s the then and now of how we planned — and our four-year plan for teen #3!
My husband and I are second-generation homeschoolers so we remember what homeschool was like before outsourcing. There were no online classes and co-ops didn’t exist in most places until the end of our high school years. While some curriculums offered VHS classes or grading services, and some kids dual enrolled in community college, none of that was really common.
I know those early homeschool parents would have given their right arms for the resources we have today!
But when is outsourcing a good idea, when is it not, and how on earth do we make it affordable?
Some of my kids easily remember what they learn, while others need a little help, and still others need intensive, daily practice — even for things they learned months ago.
But we’ve found that no matter the extent of the problem, the same principles and activities can help. That’s music to this busy mama’s ears!Read more
While most of the world turned upside down in March, we were headed that way last September. With crises in our immediate and extended family, worsening health in myself and one of our children, an evacuation due to near-riots, and everything else #2020, our homeschool has really suffered.
But math has been one of my main worries.
