The 1st time around (2 years ago) I enjoyed it about 85-90% of the time. Elena was in 1st grade and excelled in her studies. This meant that when she did struggle it was due to boredom. You see, once she got through all subjects other than Math she would get unmotivated. I tried several methods to make Math more interesting, but completing her math work was a NIGHTMARE. Math was the last subject we completed that year. It was like pulling teeth to get it done. I tried starting the day with it, doing it last, eliminating as much paperwork as possible, but no matter what she just hated when we had to cover this particular part of the school day. Needless, to say she LOVES not homeschooling. Math is still a struggle for her, but she is an excellent student and being in a classroom setting really works so well for her!
Oh Memories! Elena's 2013-2014 School Year....
Allee is in PRE-K. I started homeschooling her for this year. Most of my approach is "Fun & Play". It's great because on a weekly basis we focus on a letter, bible verse, book, shape, color and number. I don't do "lessons/activities" that last more than 15 minutes and we take breaks in between. It's been lovely. I don't think I would want to home school further than Kindergarten, but for now it's been great. I am enjoying it 100% so far, but we'll see what I think at the end of the school year.
Pre-K Allee's 2016-2017 School Year
Anyhow, it's been great. I definitely am taking things one year at a time, but am enjoying PRE-K a lot more than I expected!!
I know this isn't a long post, just wanted to get my thoughts out while I had a free moment. Allee needs to get up from her nap and I need to make dinner. Hoping you are all well.
