The 2012-2013 Homeschool Year Begins
I began by creating a binder using www.fivejs.com free printables to plan our school year out and to create our schedule. We do use more of an unschooling approach allowing the kidlets to learn through everyday living.
Home Ec and Life Skills such as cooking, cleaning, and hygiene are going to be some of our big points this year to focus on. With Elijah being Autistic, I think this is important for him. We will also concentrate on phonics, arts and crafts, animal science (including dinosaurs), math (counting, time, measurements, etc) and physical education.
Elijah is pretty excited to begin ‘schooling’ now so he chose to make corndog muffins for lunch today. A great idea that we found on pintrest this morning.
