Just writing that title makes me feel a bit uneasy.
Well, it's that time of the year once again when I shutter to think about next year all the while not being done with this year. I need a break to rest my mind! But, I am forced to think about it-homeschool circles and friends are all talking about it and reading about it.
I need to seriously examine what worked this year and what did not.
I need to figure out if I am going to stay with my current curriculum/books that we used this year or change completely over to something different, something new.
All these questions and thoughts are not simple!
I could just say... "Well, my kids are passing their CAT tests each year and thats good so if it's not broken, why fix it?" I could say that, right? They are learning but I can't agree that is enough.
That is not being a proactive and pro-thinking teacher...right???
I not only want my children to learn but to LOVE LEARNING.
Each year is different. Each child is different. Each child is going into a different school year.
So, things ARE different so I have to adapt.
More to come on this.....
God bless, Mary
