I’ll be pausing the sibling series for March and instead I will be talking about homeschooling. It’s that time of year when we are figuring out what to do for next year PLUS it really is great for siblings to spend school time together. So it fits. Kinda.
I get a ton of questions, literally a ton, I’ve measured, about what curriculum we use. In case you don’t know, we have homeschooled all of our kids forever, they’ve never gone to school. Three of the kids have graduated and two will be graduating this year. I had 7 in school for a while there, which was not easy. But it is possible and I am still alive to tell you about it. This year I have 6 in school, but after this it’s all downhill. Only 13 more years to go….whoop!
As for curriculum, I’m not a one size fits all kind of girl. Some kids respond to a curriculum then the next kid doesn’t do well with it. So I have used a LOT of different ones over the past 20 years and through March I am going to share some of my favorites.
In keeping with the sibling series, I love to do unit studies! We can all study the same thing together. We sit together, have a discussion about the topic and then I give out assignments based on each child’s ability. It’s such fun to be learning as a family!
I will be sharing some of our favorites, but you can also just search online for free unit studies. We’ve done plenty of free ones including spiders, Texas, hymns and clouds. Just Google it….there’s a lot out there.
I can’t wait!
