Another school year is ending

Published May 22, 2018 by lynn k scott

My daughter is very much looking forward to next Friday; when her 6th year of school officially ends.  As a homeschooling mom, while she gets to enjoy a couple months off from academics, I am not so lucky.

Ok, it’s not that bad.  Today, I began my curriculum search.  I’m a “book geek”.  I enjoy reviewing the different options and what might suit my daughter best.  I typically order from one Christian site.  I add everything I want to my cart, then compare the books on Ebay and Amazon.  After all, no need to overspend, right?

When all is said and done, I’ll typically spend between $200-$300 for all her school books.  It may seem like a lot to some, however, when you factor in the public “school list” of all the supplies they ask the parents to provide, school shopping, etc., I definitely save more by homeschooling.

I’ve already purchased her spelling and first set of math booklets (they are workbooks that the student moves through at their pace).  I selected her science, grammar and language art books today.  We will finish the second half of her history at the start of 7th grade and then I’ll figure out what we will do for the rest of the year.  There are so many options.  I have 8th grade history already selected.  If you homeschool, I highly recommend Notgrass for history.

I have to purchase her books early, so I can start reviewing them and planning out the upcoming lessons.  I know many parents like to take each day as it comes, but I am a working mom, so planning out the coursework helps me accomplish her studies and my work.

I am grateful and blessed to be able to home educate.  With all my medical issues that we faced this year, my daughter would have missed a lot of school.  I was able to teach from my hospital bed and while I was recovering.  I am so glad we returned to homeschooling.  I know we were led to do this.  It has brought us closer together and we’re constantly reinforcing our faith through her lessons.
