Today, my 7th grader did his math lesson on a laptop in my parents’ dining room, his spelling on the living room floor, and his history on the couch.
Yesterday, we planned a last-minute field trip to a children’s museum since grandma was available to join us.
Last week, when all the public schools were in session, we took our Spring break because it worked better for our family’s schedule.
A month ago, my 4th grader and I decided to switch to a different math curriculum. We transitioned mid-year to a program that worked better for him.
We’ve got no school desks, no bulletin boards, no interactive smart whiteboard, and no lockers. Some days we start school at 7am and other days at 10am. Our homeschool is a far cry from a public school classroom.
But it wasn’t always so.
