Molly started homeschooling two weeks ago. We decided that since we didn’t know when we were going to be heading out on this adventure, that we would just start homeschooling for first grade even if we were still here because we didn’t want to interrupt her schedule when it was actually time to go. We’ve already had a few days of on the road homeschool while we were out boat searching. That was interesting! (You’ll see that in our next post/video!)
We decided to go with the A Beka homeschool program because 1) It’s a complete program, that walks you through everything. Since I’ve never had this experience before, we thought that would be best. 2) It’s all completely on paper. Since we will not have reliable internet on this trip, online school was just not an option. 3) My friend (who homeschooled her son) gave me almost EVERYTHING that I needed for first grade! All I needed to do was purchase the workbooks. How exciting is that! (Thanks Phoenix!)
I spent months preparing, preparing all the lesson plans, coming up with art projects, coming up with some extra fun worksheets and projects, and teaching myself how to teach Molly. That part was really fun and I hope that it continues to be this much fun!
Stay tuned for our next post about how we go to Maryland as the boat search continues!
