So a lot of you have asked about home schooling. How will that work? Who is the teacher? When do the boys work?
Here are the basics:
The boys work when they can. Unless we have something special going on – i.e. diving all day or traveling all night, the boys hit the big three subjects everyday. Reading. Writing. Math.
I have chosen a variety of books for them to read from classics to Pulitzer Prize winners. Bryce can read a book in a few hours (When he wants to) and Colin takes about a day to get through a book of his own choice. I’m stretching them on this subject because they can handle it….
The are both working on essays and blog posts as well as writings for the blog set up. So far we don’t have anything published, but we are getting there.
We bought Colin the standard Saxon PreAlgebra book – or as it is called in the homeschooling network Algebra 1/2. We are plowing through that as well as working online.
Bryce is keeping his skills sharp working through Algebra books and a Geometry review book.
