Unit Studies





Trying so hard to make my first unit study of the life of Sacajawea and her influence on the Lewis and Clark Expedition. never thought it would be so hard and take up so much time. So far I have my geography lessons down, my hx lessons, and art, just trying to figure out how to incorporate math into this little equation here is the trick. Learning to homeschool is a little more complicated than I initially though and I am so worried about not teaching my kids the right things and them falling "behind". Hopefully, this will be successful and I wont have to go to a planned curriculum, that my kids hate :( Back to google to see what I can find that may be helpful. I guess i have to learn that not all studies can be completed by the end of the week and put in this nice little box! Really have to work at unschooling myself first, I think the kids are already there and waiting for me to catch up! Wish me luck!

just checking to see how this all works from my cell phone!

Intro

Ok so I am a little new to this whole blogging world, but lets see how this works out. First off, I am a child of God, a mother of three, and a wife.My kids are: Princess 11, Drizzle Fizzle 4 and Munchkin 15. I have tried homeschooling my kids before and I loved it! Unfortunately, due to personal issues I had to place them back into the public school system so I could work FT. More unfortunate is how much they all hate the public school system and have been begging to be home schooled again. :( So I am going to give it a good ol Irish shot and see if i can manage to pull off homeschooling and working FT...wish me luck I am going to need it!
