Well we have officially finished our second term of homeschooling this year.
And I must say we are all enjoying the school year more than we have any other year. We are using Charlotte Mason's methods of teaching and that is a huge blessing. The children are learning so much in History and I am enjoying that we are all together in History. We are doing 106 Days of Creation Study and the little people who are in that are having such a fun time.
I also stumbled upon an amazing blog for resources for the little people. She has a series called A B C Read to me and it is amazing for the little people. It is notebooking which we have never done before but I am enjoying it immensely and so are the little ones. You can read about it over at Walking by the Way.
With doing the 6 weeks on and 1 week off I finally have the time to keep up with the house. Following my homekeeping notebook helps also. But I have a week off of lessons to catch up on anything that has fallen by the way side. Also I can take the time to print up what I need for next terms lessons. I have oodles of printing to do to keep the toddlers busy, but it has been so worth it. The 4 year old knows all his letter sounds. Not sure if I am going to start reading instruction or not but it is good to know that he has the sounds down for when we do. I am still looking for some good preschool math introduction. I love our Saxon kindergarten program but not sure if I want to start that yet or not. The ones I have started in Saxon that early are really ahead on their math.
So how do you run your homeschool? What do you do to stay organized?
