Input please on Homeschooling programs
Hi to all the homeschooling moms and dads out there! I want to start homeschooling my 4.5 year old (and 2 year old also). I am rather scatterbrained and am going to need some sort of program to keep us on track. What programs have y’all tried with preschoolers and elementary schoolers? What works best for you and your littles?
I struggle with providing structure and daily schedules for myself and the girls, even with just keeping up on the most basic mommy chores. Any tips and advice? Dad is here, but pretty much views all kid, household, livestock, and gardening tasks as my responsibility (his is to providence an income).
We are country folk, it is 40 miles to town, church and shopping. We have a mini-farm that we plan on expanding a bit more each year; on a 50 acre property with woods, wooded mountainside, swampy areas, creek and field space.
I am currently looking at My Father’s World as a possibility. It combines elements of a classical program with Charlotte Mason’s ideas and uses unit study. I like how it integrates Christian values into the daily learning. I am just starting to explore what is out there though and would appreciate input from some people with experience in homeschooling.
