"Not" Back to School Blog Hop ~ Curriculum Week
When I saw a post on facebook about this blog hop, I knew that I wanted to participate, and I figured that this would be a good beginning for my new homeschooling blog.
I school three children ... the oldest is 10 and in the 5th grade ... the middle child is 8 and in the 3rd grade ... the baby is 4 and in kindergarten. This will be the first year that I have homeschooled all three of my children. I like to bring them all together for as many subjects as possible. Of course, this is easier to accomplish with the older two, but even the little one enjoys listening to all of our read-alouds and I am always surprised by what he remembers. For this year, the kids will be using the same history and science curriculum. I will have to tailor the individual assignments and the tests to their grade levels, but we will all cover the material together.
