I’d better just jump right in and write something, or this will forever remain empty!
I’m starting up this blog to keep a record of our new adventure in home education. This week saw the start of Matthew, age 9, staying at home while the majority of Scotland start their new year at a traditional school.
I’ve been keeping a log of what we’ve been up to so I can look at what works & what doesn’t. This week was mostly about seeing what Matthew knows already, and trying to find out how best to structure (or not!) the teaching/learning process.
It’s a very strange feeling to write up what I think will be a workable schedule for the day only to find out that the day doesn’t really work like that. It’s very unlike a cleaning schedule where there is a clear done or not!
There may be more family things added in… not really sure how it will all develop!
