We are an eclectic home school family who use mainly the KONOS curriculum. We supplement with American Dream Reading, Explode the Code, Math-U-See, and various other independent books and materials.
Our typical yearly schedule:
Fall–One complete KONOS unit
December–Christmas unit study
January–Misc. child-interest-based unit
Spring–One complete KONOS unit
Winter/Early Spring 2009: Trust
Late Spring 2009: Patience
- Plant Growth/Gardening
Summer–Misc. child-interest-based unit(s)
We love to school with others in our area. We belong to an association with which we publish a child-written magazine, perform in talent shows, network with other relaxed home schoolers, and host art shows. We also have a few families we like to get together with on a regular basis–to craft with, hike with, and play with.
We live on a river that feeds into the Chesapeake Bay and love the ducks in our front yard, the geese flying overhead, and the herons that like to sun on the pier out back. We also have several active robins’ nests in our deck every year. We have plenty of science class right out back.
We hope you enjoy a peek into our home school home life.
