I ran into a snag this past month regarding home school. The program I am using, The Weaver, was moving on to a new unit, and I was not even a little bit prepared for the projects involved. The unit was on family. You were to create a memory book, talk to your relatives with a list of questions to ask regarding their life, and lots of pictures were needed.
I love the idea of a memory book, but the time involved in creating the book was beyond what I could handle. My solution to the problem, which was not what I would recommend, was to bury my head for a few weeks and pray it would go away. Obviously that was a silly plan, but one I run to time and time again when life gets hard.
Then one fine day I decided that as J’s teacher I would toss the unit and begin with a new one. One I knew we could enjoy together, a unit about transportation. What do boys love? Cars, trains, airplanes, and everything in between that makes noise and moves. This lesson is igniting my love for homeschooling and J didn’t know there was a problem to begin with.
This week we’ve been studying the call and move of Abram and his family, and how people move around today. Even as I write this post he and his sister are flying paper airplanes around the house that their father has made. Ah the benefits of home school, and they just keep coming.
