This Homeschooling Life #1

Hello! I’m here with the first post in our new linky today. This Homeschooling Life is a collaborative idea to show you a glimpse into our day to day life. With four kiddos at home 24/7 it can get pretty hectic. We took the summer ‘off’ – I did a little less than usual work and the kiddos didn’t have any groups or their usual ‘school work’ that they do at home. This past week was our first of getting back into our usual rhythms after a few weeks of long, lazy summer days. I don’t define us as any one ‘type’ of homeschoolers – we just do what works for us as a family as well as each individual child.

I’m planning a post separate to this linky soon as to curriculums/books/topics etc.. but here are a few snapshots from this past week. Our day’s can vary wildly, but days at home usually follow more or less the same-ish rhythm… mornings the girls have daily journals that they write/draw in – these aren’t for me to see/check {unless they ask me to} but just as a space for them to record our days or write stories or anything they like. We usually spend an hour or so working on some Maths and English. Then while Vega has his morning nap, the little two and I will work on a project – we’re doing some Earth Science right now as well as a Stone Age history topic. Lola will work through her own courses and ask for help if she needs it.

Afternoons are for crafts, trips to the park, library visits or watching the odd documentary on Netflix. We go to a couple of regular homeschool groups as well as organising playdates with otehr families and take lots of trips out – such as to the museums in Liverpool.
