Hey ladies. Question for you all:
I was wondering how or if you differentiate between half or full days? I know homeschool often takes less time than conventional school. How do you decide I'd you did a full day or half day of work? Hours, subjects covered, material mastered? Or do you not differentiate at all?
I consider it a full day when we've completed all subjects that I have picked out for the year excluding science and history which are on alternate days. Definetly not a full day like ps. Homework is done after I've gone through what needs to be taught by me then I let him have independent study time. Works for us. Half day is just doing math and english.
Our boxed curric is 2 hours for my K student and 2 1/2 for my 1st grader. I have coaxed my K student into doing 3 hours worth of work 4 days a week. I am trying to nudge her along as she is bored with a few of her classes.
I look around at my house. If my house is a mess it is because we had a very full day. There is nothing like an erupted science experiment in my kitchen sink. LOL We are learning every day. We also homeschool year round so I don't give it really that much thought. We are mostly child led so learning is an everyday thing for us.
