To Homeschool or Not?
May 10, 2008 3 Comments
My wife and I have been discussing whether or not to homeschool next year. We have homeschooled our daughters in the past but not the last couple years. Next year we have decided to homeshool again, unless something unforeseen happens between now and then. They will be entering the 6th and 3rd grades.
We have been looking at curriculum again. We really like the Bob Jones homeschool curriculum (that is what we used before) but the video formats didn’t work well with my daughters. We have been considering the Switched On Schoolhouse curriculum. The computer based curriculum should work well with our daughters. We are also looking at some electives for them. We will probably use Spanish as one elective (they have many friends who are Mexican immigrants – the kids speak English and Spanish but most of the parents don’t know much English).
Do you homeschool? If so, what curriculum do you use? What are its strengths and weaknesses? Would you recommend it to others?
