I think I always knew I would start out homeschooling little Z. It just seem to make sense. I talked about it, told people about it and then the day came and guess what!? I hadn't done anything about it. NOT ONE THING. Typical Missy. Or as Z calls me,"Last minute Missy."
So I quickly joined an awesome homeschool group that meets once a month at our church. I also joined another group where once a month we go somewhere like hiking or a walk in the woods. It was a start.
I quickly found (after digging through a ton of bins in the basement) our very first homeschool bin. I struck paydirt. Everything I needed for this year. After two weeks though I realised that I didn't quite have everything.
You see, I didn't teach my kids to read. When I started to homeschool the girls they could already read. So after playing around with a few different things I knew I couldn't teach Dane to read without some serious guidence. I knew I couldn't afford Hooked on Phonics and I sooooo wanted to. I finally decided to go with Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons . (purchased off of EBAY for $3.00) Today we started lesson 1. Either we'll learn to read or die trying.
