homeschooling

A New Year… A New Focus

You know what.. homeschooling an elementary-aged boy is hard. Really hard. He loves to play, super busy all of the time, and really, in his mind, has no time to sit down and learn alphabet sounds…
I’ve got to change up what I consider “school”. School for him must be play. I can’t sit him down with worksheets (my daughters loved LOVED worksheets); he needs school disguised as play. I’m now shopping at places I, until now, did not appreciate, places like Timberdoodle’s and Queen’s Homeschool Copywork books. I now search websites for phonics and math card games…oh, the humanity. I am determined that he will be a highly educated young man; I just shudder at the lengths I will travel to see it happen.
