Dads and homeschooling

posted in Uncategorized |

As I’ve already mentioned we’re  starting homeschool kindergarten in January with Precious. We’re starting out using Five in a Row   which is a literature based unit study curriculum. Our first unit is on Katy and the Big Snow, which is a story about a snow plow that helps save her town.

Part of the story includes the use of North, South, East, West . My husband loves using Google Earth, as well as maps in general. He’s keen to be involved in our homeschool so I’ve asked him to teach a lesson on using maps, introducing the idea of cardinal directions.

Last night he came home from a trip to Walgreens with the Orajel I requested but he also bought a compass! It’s a little handheld compass which only cost $3. He was so proud of himself because he knew our daughter would just love it.

And this is why it’s important for me (and other homeschool moms) to keep Dad informed about what’s going on. They have a lot to offer as teachers, too, if we just keep them aware of what the plans are.

There is currently one response to “Dads and homeschooling”

Why not let us know what you think by adding your own comment! Your opinion is as valid as anyone elses, so come on... let us know what you think.
