Need Homeschool Ideas for Teaching Multiple Students
Homeschool Ideas Needed
Do you teach multiple children? Please share your homeschool ideas for teaching multiple grades at once!
I've tried plenty of homeschool curriculum types and have found we actually operate better and learn more with textbook type curricula, and lots of living books related to what we're studying.
I'm not going to feel bad about my choices anymore, because it works for us! So far, it's okay, because only one child is really at proper school age, so the others listen in. I print a coloring page or activity for the little ones to do when we do history, science etc, but work using the text as a spine.
But when they're bigger, and you use traditional curricula, how do you do teach three children, three different books for each subject?
I know unit studies are on option, but we're tried that and I'm exhausted. I need a spine to work with. Should I continue just using the older child's texts, as I have been, and adding little grade appropriate activities for the younger ones, or how do other parents who use BJU or Abeka or CLP manage to juggle multiple children?
