Boyd Family Homeschool

Homeschooling many children on different levels can be a challenge. I have heard more than once, "how do you do it all?" It's called Multilevel teaching! I hope to inspire "Moms of Many" with my thoughts, ideas, trials and errors, plus discuss books, and curriculum that work for homeschooling larger families.

Location: Alabama, United States

I am the wife of a wonderful man, and a stay-at-home homeschooling Mom to 6 bright children so far. We have an awesome time with our homeschooling, and I hope I am leading my children into a love of and lifetime of learning through good books. I am also the Editor/Publisher of a Homeschool Support Group Newsletter, and a Homeschool Co-op Teacher. I teach both preschoolers, and journalism students. My journalism students put out a monthly newspaper called The Crusader.

10:00 am History

10:00am-History is next. With somewhat of a classical and Charlotte Mason flair!

We are using Story of the World Volume 1 and 2 this year. I bought the CD’s for the children to listen to, and then they move on to their activities. Hunter and Logan work together on their map work and coloring sheet, and then move on to a project. The girls do the same. One week we had an archaelogy dig that I set up in the backyard. Another week we mummified a chicken! We also read from the Kingfisher History Encyclopedia, and various other books that pertain to what we are studying.

Noah is painting or playing with playdough, while Emma is sitting on the blanket with the toys. This is the time when I get to sit down and play with my two little one!

Next year for history we will be using the Beautiful Feet set for American History. I am really looking forward to that!

Happy Homeschooling!
