I have been a homeschooler since January 2013.
My approach is a mixture of curriculum and the interests my children have. If they have a burning question we will add it to the list of things we will learn about.
I have not had any extended formal education.
My oldest has been diagnosed with Asperger's. He is academically advanced and struggles socially. Pulling him out of school has reduced the social stress he was dealing with, and I have been able to reteach him things he had known going into grade 1. Now he's being challenged at his grade level. My second child was struggling but not drawing any attention to himself so he wasn't getting any help and now he's able to get the attention he needs, though not always wants. I also have a preschooler starting to work his way into the mix as well. He is almost 4 and is starting to learn how to read. Finding the right work for them that is not geared towards the classroom environment (we do not have the same access to group work or equipment that a school has) is very time consuming and difficult. I will be writing up some of my children's school work where needed and sharing it on here. All the money made through Tpt will be put back into our schooling experience. I am a good writer and I enjoy a challenge, so if you need any short stories for a reading comprehension please feel free to contact me. I can also do poetry. I have a sample poem and a sample short story available for free, please check them out.
