On Homeschooling Fears and Tears
So, we're ready to make our foray into homeschooling this September. But I have to admit, I am not only excited, but slightly terrified. Will I be a halfway decent teacher to my child? Will I be doing it right? How am I supposed to go about this?
We've decided to go with a secular curriculum since my husband and myself our both atheists, we want our child to be able to decide religion, deities and such when he comes of age to be able to do that. It's a correspondence course, meaning that he does the work, and we send it back to them for grading.
In fact, it is the same homeschool curriculum I used when I was homeschooled as a child. Kinda crazy, right? But I'm quite nervous about the whole thing. Will I have the patience for it? I feel like homeschooling him will give me purpose, one that I never had before. Now I am responsible for my child's education.
Right now, we've been working on workbooks and such over the summer in order to get him ready for kindergarten (I can't believe my baby is going to be five - but that's an entirely new blog post.) We have this huge thick folder of work that he has been doing. I guess I'm just nervous he will be behind and it will be my fault somehow. But I also know that is what the curriculums are there for, to help out.
But, my whole point of this blog post is to ask YOU, THE READER, what are your favorite homeschool blogs? I want to do all of the research that I can before September rolls around!
