Encouraging Christian Families
It is great to read this, Bethany.I love the feeling of crossing off everything on the schedule...It doens't happen all that often but when it does it is grand!
What does a FULL day look like? Does that mean 9am-3pm lessons? Our little guys are still able to complete their lessons in an hour or so and my oldest, is able to complete hers in 2+ hours. But then I incorporate science, geography, etc throughout the day. I definitely do not have check lists....just makes me an anxious mommy.
Mama in Uganda,By "full" day, I mean that we covered all the intended subjects. There are some secondary subjects that I teach only every other day (like geography, science, etc). We do morning devotions after breakfast and we try to start school by 10. The day I wrote this original post, we had lunch at 12 and finished up school by 2.Today was a shorter day, done at 12:30. It depends on what lessons are being taught (and how tired I am). To my non-home-schooling readers, it is not unusual for home schoolers to finish their lessons in only a few hours. We do not have a classroom of 20 some children all working at different paces. Bethany
