It is that time of the year again. Where we homeschool mommas get excited about buying the new and shiny homeschool curriculum for our homeschoolers.
This year I will be homeschooling a 2nd, 4th, 5th and 10th grader. My highschooler is not included in this blog post and will get a seperate blog post for her curriculum picks for the 2021-2022 homeschool year.
I am simplifying our homeschool this year, I am only focusing on the areas my children need to dominate.
I will be using living books, hands on experiences, field trips, game schooling, online schooling, documentaries and educational videos for the rest of our subjects like, Bible, History, Science, Music, Gym, Health, Geography, Foreign Language and Art.
The areas I feel my homeschoolers need to dominate in are: Reading, Spelling, Math, Writing, and Grammar. These will be our core 5 that we will do 4 times a week.
We will get the other subjects in at least 3 times a week and even utilizing our weekends. They won’t even know their learning because it will be fun learning, and play. We will do hands on activities and educational documentaries, and field trips.
Let’s cut out all the fluff and jump right into it.
