doing what Jackie does

I decided to create a blog for our homeschooling experiences.

We’re unorthodox in our method of learning, since we’re not using standard curriculum.

We use Unit Studies, which allows me to teach my three children, (kindergarten, first grade and ninth grade), the same topic, at the same time, just adjusted to their learning level and style. This also allows me to cover many subjects, like Language, History, Science and Music.

Just this past week, we studied Rock & Roll History. We listened to LOTS of music, danced to the Twist, and rocked to KISS! We got to the Rap of the 1980s, but ran out of time before we could get into Arena rock, Hair Bands, and Pop Rock. My children are VERY familiar with that kind of music, because that is MY music!!

your thoughts?
