i am new to spark and the team. my name is nichole and i am currently homeschooling 4 kids ages 6, 5, 3, & 11. we do a kind of unschooling styled, year round homeschool. We study 6 wks on 1 week off with season breaks throughout the year....mainly around holidays, summer, fam vacations, and any other thing we want to do! ;)
Although we learn all things needed for State tests and then some. I simply let kids decide what they want to learn, when and how. We love hands on activities such as our garden and experiments. I enjoy it since i am a spontanious type that goes with the flow. So without any really set curriculum we can watch youtube vids all day, animal planet or visit the planetarium anyday.
Hope i can make some friends, share some tips and learn some new things from everyone.
