Homeschooling Totally Different This Year


This year as you may all know, I have fallen in love with The Thinking Tree Journals and Dyslexia Games.

Brent 8th, Ethan 7th, and Lance 5th will use the journals this year. All a little differently and I’ll blog our Thinking Tree journey :)
Homeschooling The Thinking Tree Way
As the year progresses and we use different journals the way we use them will change.

Currently all three kiddos are completing 10 pages a day (4 hours of work) but many of the newer journals (60 Day Journals) suggest 5-6 pages (2 hours of work), meaning I’ll start adding some of the school books that I purchased this year.

I’ll switch things up! My gears are still turning and I’m trying to figure out how to fit more structure in our “fun-schooling” days and keep it delight-directed too! 
I can’t wait for Lance to get started with this book! (it’s not in the picture above)

And for Brent I still need to purchase one of the journals that Sarah recently made for 6th-8th grades. These books have copywork provided for the child and pages for them to choose their own copywork.
6th-7th
There’s also research pages and lots of fun pages that are not in the younger journals. I can’t wait to have Brent and soon Ethan use them.

I might mix and match our journals too! Meaning with Ethan, he will work in his Fun-Schooling journal a few days a week and use another journal for 3 days a week!

So stay tuned to see how we homeschool The Thinking Tree Way which should be interesting considering how I’m a school-at-home type of homeschooler.

I’m really excited to have some Delight-Directed Homeschooling going on here at Homeschooling6!

  4. You're welcome. It's a new way of schooling for me. You know me, textbookish type homeschooling mom :) I'm enjoying the change, and later I'll figure out how to add our Master Books curricula in.
