Homeschooling

We have previously used A Beka, Bob Jones, and free websites to homeschool our Chickadees and this year we will be trying something different.

For bible we, as a family, plan on reading the whole bible in one year.
A Beka for arithmetic and language, separate grades.
My Fathers World unit studies for all other subjects, all together.

This year (2017-2018) we have children in Kindergarten, 2nd, 3rd, 6th, and 8th grade.

Our educational philosophy is very traditional.
The traditional approach to homeschooling parallels a typical classroom.
Grade level textbooks, workbooks, and teacher’s manuals are used.
Tests, grades, and schedules are a normal part of traditional schooling.
Many families using this approach will have a mini-classroom set up in their home.
Check out our classrooms that we've had in some of the places we've lived.. here and here.

Most homeschooling families will suggest that before you decide which home school curriculum to use with your children, that you first find out which home school philosophy best fits your family.

Take this quiz to see which educational philosophies best match your family:

Here is a list that briefly describes each philosophy and gives you links to curriculum's and more information:
