I (Wendy) tell parents that there is no silver bullet in home schooling. Every school is unique, and that is what home schooling should be. Be creative to come up with solutions that work for you and your family. We like to share what works best for us, but when we see families try to copy us exactly, it never works out nicely. Please, be creative and enjoy the freedom in your home school!
Chris is the English teacher. He brings Lydia, Isaiah, Micah, Noah and Tabitha to the office twice a week for grammar, handwriting, reading and writing. Cynthia and I keep Keilah, Hannah and Joshua to do basic reading. On the days when I have all of them, we read literature and tie unit studies to them. We also enjoy science projects. Chris brings Cynthia, Lydia and Isaiah to debate club on Thursday nights. We attend PE+ (a phy ed class) every week, and our local home-school group of families often do field trips.
