More Adventures in Homeschooling

Posted on September 6, 2009. Filed under: Daily life, Homeschool, Karate, kids | Tags: , , , , |

We have been back to school for a full month now, and so far things are going pretty well.  We are learning about the Middle Ages in history, Earth and Space in science, parts of speech and such in grammar, phonics rules in spelling, italic style handwriting (we finished basic italic this past week and are ready to start cursive!), and multiple column addition and subtraction in math.  We are also about to start a very basic introduction to multiplication and division, which is very exciting!  On top of that, coop classes with our homeschool group are starting in a few weeks and I am going to be leading the geography class.  We aren’t sure what Jonathon is going to be taking yet as we are still waiting for the final schedule of classes, but we should know soon, I hope.  Oh, and we are trying to sign up together for a class on basic art techniques at the local technical school.  They have short (usually 6-12 weeks) classes geared for adults who want to continue their education without committing to a degree or certification program, and the professors tend to be pretty flexible, so hopefully they will allow us to take the class together.  Jonathon is still taking karate – he is now a green belt –  and is signed up to start tball in a few weeks.  Needless to say, doing all this in addition to my 2 part time jobs has kept me pretty busy!  But I think we are set up for a good year, and I’m looking forward to learning so many new things together.

Hi! I ran across your blog while randomly surfing through my Facebook friends while procrastinating.. I’m a loooong ago friend of Nathan’s.

I blog, have 2 part-time jobs, and am homeschooling too, although the homeschooling is not very official yet, seeing as how my daughter is just about to turn 3..but that’s one of the things I love about homeschooling – the opportunity to get an early start!

Anyway – I always love to read what other people are doing in the homeschool realm – it’s a great way to get ideas. Thanks for sharing!
