I just quickly added some of our Homeschool Resource web pages, in case anyone is interested in what we do. Here are the basics:
The Weaver: Unit Studies
1-2-3 Read! Phonics
Penmanship to Praise
Flip Flop French
With my music performance/education background, I will be giving my kids music lessons in their early years - if they show specific interest/talent in a particular area, we will work out lessons at that point.
We use NotebookingPages.com for their free pages.
I occasionally go to TheLearningPage.com for their basic unit studies and monthly free workbook pages (the kids really enjoy doing these pages while I am cooking dinner) - you have to be a member, but it's totally free.
I get CurrClick's weekly freebie sent to my inbox - if I think I might EVER use it, I download it and save it in my homeschool files for later use. That is where I got Level 1 of Flip Flop French. We just wanted to do ANYTHING but Spanish - I must be rebelling, it seems Spanish is *everywhere* so we just wanted to go a different direction. Maybe living right next to Canada will help in this area later. We'll see....
Phys.Ed. is outside. It's the beach. It's pick-up games at church. You know, just fun playing. We have no plans to put our kids in organized sports - yet.... We'll cross that bridge in the future, that *expensive* bridge..... I've been talking to other "larger" families to see how they handle sports, seeing as how we simply can't afford the money, nor the time, to have everyone in a sport every season, every year. Just don't discuss this with my father, seriously (luv ya dad!).
There's a few other good sites, such as HomeSchoolReviews. Just checking out some of the reviews give me a good idea about certain curriculums I've heard about. Good site.
Ok, enough. We'll talk more homeschool as the summer progresses towards fall....exciting!!
