Home school Mother’s Journal

 

In our homeschool this week…

Eric will be the only one working on lessons this month. He had the first 2 weeks of June off. He will start his lessons again next week.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…

We didn’t have any homeschool groups or scouts this week. Last week we met a new homeschool friend and we lost a great homeschool friend as their family got ready to start a new chapter in life by moving out of state.

My favorite thing this week was…

It was quiet. Eric was very well behaved. I got lots of work done on the kids lessons and got plenty of one on one time with Eric.

What’s working/not working for us…

Going to attempt a new schedule for the kids. Its called focus weeks. One week we focus on History, Geography, Literature and the next week its Science, Math, Latin & Spanish. The boys will do 2 weeks worth of each subject on their focus weeks. The homeschool families  that have tried this have said it is a huge success and everyone had lots of less stress and more time to explore each topic.
