Comments on: Our Home School Plan http://hornes.org/2008/08/our-home-school-plan/ Tue, 22 Jul 2014 20:14:12 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.1 By: Shannon http://hornes.org/2008/08/our-home-school-plan/#comment-1969 Tue, 27 Jan 2009 17:02:17 +0000 http://www.hornes.org/2008/08/our-home-school-plan/#comment-1969 Hi Tricia. My husband Giovanni works with your husband. We’ve been thinking (and thinking and thinking and PRAYING) about homeschooling our two girls next year. I’ve been combing through curriculum choices, and my hubby sent a link to this very helpful page. Thank you for posting this…information directly from hs-ing parents is so valuable. I hope your choices are working well for your family.

I like the curriculum offered by Sonlight, but I’m conflicted with wanting to stay on the classical route (my girls go to Coram Deo now). My thought is to use Sonlight’s core curriculum and add classical components (Latin and logic for now). Do you enjoy Latin Primer? Sorry for the long post, and thank you again!

And it is also fun to find another kindred “researcher”! :-) It took me over twenty minutes to comment as I had to look up all your links in the adjacent blogs. Seriously, I love to plumb the depths of things I’m looking into.

Our oldest Cayley is now 11, so we’ve had five-plus years w/home education. My first few years could be described as curriculum-focused and doing as many activites as our budget allowed. The last few years have been a new focus on choosing things, not if we have the money, but if we have the time, wanting to, as homeschoolers, actually be home and focus on discipling ohildren in the Lord. We have esteemed a classical education since the late 90s, and it is a thrill and potential depressor to pore through the Veritas Press catalogue’s superior (and pricey) materials. Our oldest studied Latin from 2nd-5th grade. We’ve moved recently and will have to restart somewhere else. But my heart embraces the more laid-back but self-motivated Robinson Curriculum and Thomas Jefferson Education method (both like classical, as your research may have found, in that there’s an emphasis on reading great literture and history by which one becomes educated in a way largely lost to government education.)

Homeschooling chat is always an hours-long discussion w/me, so I’ll close. ;-)

God’s grace and blessing on your getting established,
Molly

Just looking at that curriculum list makes me eager with giddiness to do something like this myself and, AT THE SAME TIME, completely overwhelmed and sweaty.

Well, if anyone is capable of this list, it’s Horne Elementary. :) Go ((insert mascot name here))!! I look forward to hearing all about the progress!
