Since this is our first year using a child led homeschooling method, I’m both excited and nervous. I want to ensure that we have a balanced education while allowing each of my children to choose the topics/subjects they want to learn about.
Math and English are the two subjects that we will not be changing because I believe that what we’ve been using works well and without a good foundation in them, children will struggle to succeed in life.
Later this year, my middle school health curriculum will be on Schoolhouse Teachers, I am excited to be sharing it there and my kids are excited to be taking advantage of a lot of their classes for our upcoming year!
