extendedforecast Posted August 27, 2012 Share Posted August 27, 2012 (edited) Today was their first day of school in three years. We decided to put them in school because they wanted to go, the schools we now live near are excellent, and I was suffering from overload with homeschooling three kids, including a very difficult child. I'm looking forward to having more time to spend with my little ones, as I have always felt guilty that they didn't get nearly as much attention as I was able to give my older three. So who afterschools their older ones? I have a 4th, 6th, and 8th graders. They want me to continue teaching them, so I'm thinking of what I want to do with each child. My oldest would like to continue with grammar and Latin. She also wants to provide her with interesting history books. The next oldest needs major spelling help. I've tried several spelling programs over the years, but nothing has helped her. Along with that, I think I'm going to teach her Latin and provide science opportunities. Maybe I'll throw in some grammar every now and then. My fourth grader will do Math, handwriting, grammar, and lots of reading and read alouds. Of course I'll be rotating the subjects daily so as not to overwhelm them. I just hope I don't get lazy and drop after schooling altogether. That's my biggest fear right now.
