Why I home school…………..
because I get to choose what my boys will study and how they will study it. Now according to the law we have to cover Math, Social Studies, Reading, Language Arts and Science but the great thing is I get to choose how I teach those subjects and what materials I use to teach them. I also am blessed to be able to choose all the other subjects that I want to introduce to my boys. Just one more great reason to Home School!!Example of subjects that we cover: Math Reading Grammer Spelling History: Biblical, Christian Faith/Church, American and World Geography: Basic, Local, U.S. & World Literature: Living Books, biographies, Poetry, Fables Science Art Appreciation Music Appreciation: Hymns, Classical, Folk & Patriotic Songs Art Lessons: Sketching, Clay work, Painting, etc Handicrafts/ Life Skills: Sewing, Farming (well, taking care of chickens and goats), Wood Working, Wilderness Survival, Art, Baking, Gardening, Photography Spanish (we actual have been taking a break and are starting back in Jan 2010) Natural history: Readings, Nature Study, Nature Walks Health and Physical Education
