My mom started school for the year on Monday (she's in 8th grade now!) and a lot of you had some questions about her being homeschooled, so I'm here today to fill you in! My mom is homeschooled and so are two of her brothers (who are 15 and 8 years old) and her sister's first year of school is next year. She is 5 now. Oh, and my momma is 13. My mom's third brother (who is 11 years old) goes to public school at an elementary school.
I was asked how many hours my mom does school. She has no set amount of hours, it's just however long it takes for her to finish her work for the day. When it comes to different subjects, in our house it runs just like how it does in a school where you have all your subjects every day. Well, let me rephrase that...this year we're trying something different! This school year what my family is trying is where every day you have a different subject. For example, on Monday my mom did a week's worth of science, and yesterday she did a week's worth of math. This week she also has history, literature, and art, which will be the same every week.
My mom really enjoys being homeschooled and being home, along with having lots of extra time. Sometimes she'll even go ahead and do a couple day's worth of work when she's feeling restless. Then she has the rest of the day to hang out with her best friend! (That's me!) She has also been liking this "subject a day thing" and has enjoyed the week so far.
Bow wow, I wish I could go to doggy school!
P.S. The Pawlympics have been progressing very well so far! Today we have a couple of fun events I hope you can watch...maybe some of you are pawticipating, too!
