As a trained teacher, I definitely value education. I send my children to public school, but I also consider myself to be a homeschooler. I have a schedule that I follow with them to fill in gaps that I see in their school's curriculum, and I work ahead with them and supplement in areas that interest them.
In future posts, I'll discuss in more detail things that have worked well for us and some of my favorite books and projects. We touch on all areas with our homeschooling and I think it has been such a benefit to my children and myself. My children actually look forward to our work together and it has led to some of our best memories and our favorite times together. Working on academics with your children can be so much fun!
I have already seen the benefits in my daughter's school career as she has excelled academically. I am also seeing those seeds take root in my son and know that he will do even better as we continue to build more on his core skills.
If there are any specific areas you would like to hear about, please let me know in the comments. I am looking forward to sharing our journey with you on future WFMW posts.
