  • Still unsure....

    Hi, I am a single-again mom of two boys, ages 3 and 5. They both have ADHD, the 5yo has bipolar disorder, and the 3yo has global developmental delays. I see SO many positive things about homeschooling, and now that I am planning to stay home for a while, it seems like a good time to do it. However, I...

  • Re: Homeschooling for Pre-K

    Hi there, It is important when children are so young to encourage their creativity, imagination and curiosity. You might want to read a post that I just wrote on 5/1 re: early childhood. It's contents are geared toward questions re: homeschooling using a Waldorf/Steiner theory. If you read under...

    Hi Tracy, Thanks for posting your questions re: your 5 yr. old. I wanted to take this moment to talk a bit about the 3 stages of childhood and how that plays out in homeschooling. In my former life (before homeschooling) I was a teacher in a Waldorf school and earned a dual degree in Human Dev. and Family...

  • How long?

    Hi everyone. I was just wondering, if you use a "school structured" approach to homeschooling, how long are your scheduled lessons? I ask because I decided to use a fairly "school-like" timetable for my 14 year old daughter, Liana, as she has been in public school for 10 years, and...

  • Re: How young can a child be???

    You have such good ideas. Thank you. My boy really loves music and rhythm. He's constantly humming paterns and beats. We got him a drum set and he loves it. He even makes up songs using our names... abbi (daddy), mommy, and his baby brother Judah. You've inspired me to incorporate the A is for...

    Thank you so much for the suggestion. I don't know why I didn't think of that. I like to take him out because there are so many chances to learn and teach but I just recently had a second baby and we've all been couped up in the house for the past two months. Now we'll make the library...

    Hi! Lucky you to have a bright, healthy little guy to explore life with! I suspect it is not very important to HIM to be able to recite the entire alphabet clearly nor to particularly identify all his numbers and letters. You might want to go to the State education department for your state (online)and...

  • Re: New Year's Changes

    we do tend to become more focused now , after a holiday break, its time to settle in and get cozy. We will play more board games and do more family read alouds, we are also teaching my oldest daughter to bake so there will be lots of that going on. She got an apron,chef hat, and cookbooks for Christmas...
