This is a High School art video that our teen really liked, because it briefly teaches a bit about artists and their art, then suggests an activity to understand the art (such as work by DaVinci, Rembrandt, and Monet) more deeply. It's from a company called https://www.thinxcool.com/. It on their homepage, and here's a YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSJnGpFHJFo&t=25s
Does anyone know what happened to the Homeschool Reviews site? I used it for many years...and then one day it was just gone. There’s an error msg that the Server Cannot Be Found. It was a great group of folks and a wealth of info.
I've been doing lots of research, trying to figure out if this is what's best for my family and now I'm feeling like my daughter will think I stole her childhood.
Let me add that I've spent some time reading threads on the r/homeschoolrecovery page and even though it seems like most are dealing with issues I will never subject my daughter to (not socializing or trying to find a tribe, being super religious and teaching from that standpoint, not listening to my child if she wants to go to school and not putting in the effort to learn something fully before I teach her, etc) it's hard not to doubt myself, my abilities and my hope to homeschool.
We live in a state with lax HS laws (Texas) but in a city where I have lots of resources and support. My daughter is 2 in a few months and I've already attempted to reach out and join groups to set us up for the future, even if just to gather info and resources from HS families in our area. We also do all the things they suggest for young kiddos (playdates, library story time, outdoor time, just tons of play, etc).
I'm rambling but for parents who have done this, was it worth it? Are your kids better for it? Would you change anything? Thoughts, advice for a first time? I only have 1 daughter but hope to have another. Thanks, guys.
TLDR: I'm a mom to a young child (2) and in the beginning stages of researching HS. Spent some time on the r/homeschoolrecovery thread and got a little freaked out. Is this really worth it? Do our kids do better with us than regular school? Tips, advice for a newb?
Hello, I'm very new to this sub. My sister is considering withdrawing her son from school and homeschooling him instead. She's asked me to help out, and we've taken a look at some schools (k12 Discovery, Keystone, Bridgeway, etc.). He's 7 years old, and we live outside of the U.S.
