Re: Preschool Ideas?

I would never use an actual curriculum for preschool, personally. Learning through play, at that age(though truth be told, it can be done at any age, and we apply it often) is more important than...

Re: 2014-2015 planning thread

All of our...

Re: How to homeschool..

In our area, the kids aren't allowed to participate in school events, because they are homeschooled, however I do not believe that is the norm in most places. In fact, I think most places, even those...

Re: Conferences

No we don't do conferences or anything like that. Even if there were some near me, I probably still wouldn't. They just don't appeal to me in the least, lol.

Re: Lets get this board hoping:) field trips/programming in summer?

We don't really do field trips, limited means and no transportation pretty much kills that opportunity before it even gets a foot in the door, lol. We do a lot of things outdoors, and if the...

Re: How did you decide to homeschool? How did you know you could do it!?

You never truly know you're ready for something until you actually do it, to be honest. It is easy to worry about all the what ifs and such. What is really difficult, is letting go of those fears. ...

Re: How to prepare myself for homeschooling my children?

To be honest, I really don't believe you can do a whole lot of preparatory work before you have children. Sure you can research what your state, or country, requires of you. You can look into the...

Re: Who uses packaged programs?

We used primarily online resources. Our local library isn't within walking distance, so it's not a resource we use. I do have a few textbooks my aunt found randomly when cleaning out a house some...

Re: Challege of homeschooling......meal prep

One of my kids' favorite dishes came about because of having some leftovers and no time, or money, to go to the grocery store. I have changed it to use, well, really, any kind of leftovers. But ours...

Re: Who uses packaged programs?

We don't use a pre-packaged anything, as I find nearly all are far too expensive and always need tweaking. I'm a bit of a stickler for value, so if I were going to go for something pre-packaged I...

Re: Discipline

I've never really wanted a specific space. Personally...
