Last year for kinder we only did math and phonics and now in 1st grade she has a few more subjects we have to cover by law, however she would rather be playing outside and is fighting me kicking and screaming. She says school is stupid and she is refusing to do it

This is where, having had my kids in the public school to begin with, I have an advantage. Because my kids know what it is like to sit in a classroom for 7 hours a day/5 days a week/9 months a year, they have a appreciation for homeschooling. They know that no matter what I have them do, it is still better than that classroom and they still have so much more play time then they ever did before. Not only were they in that classroom for 7 hours a day, but when they got home they still couldn't play because they had 2 or 3 hours of homework to do. There are times that I wish I had started them out homeschooling, but then I remember that having had them in school has given them a better appreciation and more tolerance for homeschooling.
I wish there were some way that you could help her to understand how much more playtime she has BECAUSE she is homeschooled. Good luck! I hope she adjusts to her new schedule soon.

Ditto Shery..Noah knows 2-3 hours a day is nothing... so he never has issues with the amount of work. I am only doing core subjects though until the weather turns cus well..i want to be outside..LOL

I'm sorry you're having a rough time right now, but hopefully you can get it worked out. I'm sure you will.

I have actually laid out a timeline for Talen to show him just how much free time he has compared to ps. It really seemed to help.

I'm sorry ya'll are having such a rough time. I can sympathize. I just went through a rough spell myself. It will probably take a little time for her to get back into the school day routine anyway after having the summer break. Maybe you could ease in slowly. Use the first few weeks as introduction weeks and start out with just math & phonics, slowly adding in 1 or 2 new subjects per week until you're in a full routine. That's what we did last year & this year. It makes it much easier than slamming them with 6+ subjects right away.

to you both!
What state are you in? Ok so tell us exactly what subjects are you doing and what that looks like and lets see if we can ajust some things. Also does she have to be classed as grade 1 just yet? or can you 'hold back' a year?
I know you were adding in history, how did SOTW go?

well it turned out to only be 2 1/2 hours of work and that was with breaks in between the subjects She also did 30 min of reading YAY!! Once she "got over it" she did really good and she was looking through the SOTW stuff with me and we did horses in science so she's more excited now We live in WI.

Oh that's good. So was the kicking and screaming just from the idea of doing school, not actualy from doing it?
Looks like WI is an easy state, so I wouldn't worry if you don't always do all those subjects. Social studies, science and health can be seen to be coverd by simply living life if needed.
