With the new year came some big changes for our family. We have decided to home school full time now. You may be thinking, I thought you already were home schooling and yes we were but not really. We were actually going to an on-line academy that did all of the home schooling for me. However, once Zoe hit middle school material and she did that a year early, she stopped liking school and wasn’t doing well. She was being tested at the end of every lesson and would often fail a quiz or test. I sat with her and went through her material once and tried to see what was happening and I found that she just wasn’t getting enough instruction. So we decided to find some things that would work better for our family.
We are now using a local tech school called Digipen. The kids love it. They go twice a week and have different teachers for almost every class. Miles has the same math teacher as he does for his electronics class but he loves this guy so it’s great. I love how the classes are set up and the kids are engaged. Plus it takes a load off me so I can get some other work done. Because of this, we’re also going to be writing here on the blog a bit about our home school adventure. I’ll have a little time to write here and there and I’m so happy about that.
We’re also going to be exploring some different curriculums and a lot of STEM products. We already have one on the way that we are going to review. Plus we have some that we purchased over Christmas and received last year and I hope to share all of those with you. I know this is a short post but I wanted to start making sure that I write about my family again. That is what started the blog anyway.
