The boys and I have been SO excited to get back to homeschooling.
I kid you not...... In the middle of their Christmas hols the boys sighed and said ,"I wish homeschool was starting now!" ...... " Check at these cool books, this year is gonna be awesome!"
The day went well, except for few hiccups with the computers and mother's lack of sufficient planning! (I think one can never do enough planning!.... or am I crazy.)
Here's a very brief summery of what we are doing this year.....
Devotions .... The Names of Jesus / New Testament Matthew-Acts
Hist/Geog .... The Eastern Hemisphere... China/Japan/Australia/New Zealand/India/Russia/Asia/Africa/Pacific Islands/Middle East/Mongolia/Korea/Antarctica
Maths .... Singapore and Horizons
Language Arts ..... Sonlight Curriculum (Language Arts 4 and Lit 130)
We decided not to do Science this year as my boys are streaks ahead in this subject. I felt it would be beneficial for them to focus on other subjects that could do with a little more attention!
Afrikaans .... our country's second language. I have employed an Afrikaans lady to come and teach the boys.(I can speak and understand the language, but have NO confidence to teach it!!!!)
Electives ... Typing Instructor Deluxe , Professor Teaches Web Pages & Graphics.
So that's us sorted for the year!.... hopefully .... I am quite aware that it will probably change some way or the other!!
