After nearly 20 years of homeschooling, this week our family experienced a homeschooling “first”. With the exception of a few PE, art, and music classes with our local homeschool group, none of my children have ever “taken classes” anywhere but at home! All that changed this week!!
Last year, a local homeschool co-op was desperately in need of a “fill-in” teacher for their Classical Track, and Darcy was asked to fill the gap. Being recently graduated, unemployed, and broke, she was eager to accept! She was subsequently invited to teach middle school and high school students this year in the same program. One of the perks of being a teacher in the program is that your children can attend for free. Though Darcy doesn’t have children, she does have a little brother….sooo….
This week, Jimmy started school.
As a 1st Grade Student of the Quaere Verum (Search for Truth) Classical Academy, Jimmy will be spending every Monday attending classes in History, Language, Writing & Grammar, and Literature. He has daily assignments to complete for each class in addition to the Bible, Math, and Science curriculum that I will provide. It’s a completely different approach than this somewhat set-in-her-ways homeschool veteran has ever utilized, but hopefully, this old dog isn’t too old to learn a few new tricks!!
Here’s a look at some of what he will be studying this year:
