Integrated Lesson Planning

 Hello, 3-digit temperatures!

Summer is a designated sports fest season for my kids, but they will also be occupied with projects such as growing vegetables, making a butterfly garden, and raising butterflies and lady bugs. My two older children will handle the family’s food budget for the month of July and the two weeks of August. There is another TERRIFIC undertaking they will do in July, but I will tell about it in a future blog. I have no doubt my incoming 6th and 7th graders will have a blast with it!

Meanwhile, here’s a question: does more than one child to homeschool preventing you from choosing home schooling? Home schooling children of varying age groups (not to mention different personalities and interests) is always a challenge. I have four students aged, 12, 11, 6, and 4. Oh, yeah the four-year-old will not let it if she is ignored!

Albeit occasional snags, home schooling has worked out well with my family. The following PDF link summarizes my family’s home school lesson planning strategy.
