My "Dream Home school day"-new hs mom of 4!:-)
This will be my first year home schooling. Even though I'm certified to teach, this will still be a great challenge for me! But for me, as a Christian, I know if I keep in touch with Jesus, He'll lead me.
Well, I tend to be a perfectionist so
this is my "dream hs day"
9am devotions; Read Bible and/or missionary story book and no one moves for a half hour! Then we sing and all my kids actually participate, including my 14 yo ADD son-and they enjoy learning hymns!
9;45 or so, some how I am able to take turns giving assignments to my two oldest while my younger ones wait patiently. Then we take turns doing reading, Writing and 'rithmetic. Maybe we'll do some lessons outdoors so my youngest ADD and oldest ADD can move while they learn! I really still am not sure how I'm going to do this but I've done lots of pre-testing and have written the lesson plans for day one.
12:00 or around there, break for lunch. Yeah!
1:00 do chores so we can have recess! Great incentive right?
2:00 or so History, or Science lesson ala "Charlotte Mason" approach; I read them a little at a time, while they narrate back to me what we learned.
OR depending on the day, go for a Nature Walk and draw pictures in Nature Journal, or sit at table and paint, draw, etc. to our heart's content!Like I friend I met here said, I think I'll do like Laura Ingalls and just be one lesson ahead of my students. I just hate erasing lesson plans in my little hs lesson plan book don't you?
So, those are my plans. To be honest, I've already been sneaking in hs lessons and my kids don't even know it! haha!
HAVE A GREAT DAY!
