It seems this “day in the life” assignment always comes around when I’m in the midst of transition or crisis, but I suppose that’s just what homeschooling is: educating our kids in the middle of Life.
Our family moved to a new house last month. My school room looks like this. Not exactly Pinterest-worthy, yet, is it?
The good news is, despite moving, the flu, the holidays, and another cold amongst us, we’re still plugging away with school.
Our school day is divided into two chunks. We have a morning session that involves me teaching directly. Once their time with me is finished, my kids are free to play for a bit. After lunch, there is a chunk reserved for independent school work.
I’m essentially working with two levels of students: those who can read and those who can’t.
