It’s always fun to have a stickybeak into other people’s homeschools, right?
Here’s what we’re doing as of February 2017. Now, this is not ALL we do – this is just the more traditionally academic parts. We also do a lot of sewing, craft, and clothing design (in the last few weeks there’s been a flurry of corset and hoop skirt making), cooking, strange physical things (currently, pogo stick challenges) and all sorts of other spontaneous activities.
This video, however, gives you a great overview of what a very eclectic homeschool with five children can look like. We draw a lot of inspiration from unschooling, classical education, and project-based homeschooling, but ultimately add in bits and pieces from every style.
I can’t find a modern equivalent of our op-shop Cambridge Latin books, sorry.
Superpowers of the Ancient World MOOC (I called it History of Ancient Civilisation, oops!)
Barrie Literacy Skills | Liz Barnes (National Library of Australia record)
Mrs Pepperpot to the Rescue | Alf Proysen (modern version, the hilarious politically incorrect stuff has probably been edited)
Phew! That’s actually quite a lot!
Please remember that that is for five different children. You can use less and still provide a wonderful education. If you’re just starting out, don’t aim for this in your first week! Remember, we’ve been doing this for about ten years now. Start slowly and build your way up.
Finally, if you have any questions at all about any of our resources, please feel free to ask them in the comments. I’m always happy to talk about resources.
