As you may know, our family is taking this year to tour the US in our 5th wheel. The second most asked question we get is…’What about school?’ We are blessed to be in a school district that has an online school and they are willing to work with our unique family situation! So we get to Live the Adventure and our kids still get teachers and coursework all via the web. I don’t have to come up with curriculum and the boys can keep up for when they come back next year. How cool is that?
Since it is a new experience for us and the school, it took a little longer to get them set up officially for school. So….we started our own little 2 hour school day to get us through the first 3 days.
Here is what it looked like:
9am: PE …bike riding
Playing catch and playground
10:30am: Driver’s Ed. for our oldest
Math Review for the other two
11am: done for the day.
Not very much, but it eased us into a school routine. They now have access to their online classes and are working on assignments. Time will tell how many hours a day they need. To start they worked 3 hours a day for 4 days and they are farther than they would be back at school! They are loving it so far.
What do you do for school? How did the first week go?
Have a great day,
