Making my homeschool more efficient
After the birth of my fifth child, I have been trying to streamline my homeschool to make it more efficient. Since I love the chronological method of teaching history, and since almost every other subject can be tied to history quite easily, I've discovered that except for independent skill practice in the 3 R's, I can pare my homeschool down to basically one large lesson each day if I integrate my subjects with history as my spine. Not only is this much easier scheduling wise, but I believe it aids in retention and learning as more connections are made. Definitely a more holistic way to learn! Hopefully, I will start posting my daily lessons online so keep posted!
