On today’s episode of The Imperfectly Happy Homeschooler I am discussing how coops and classes and enrich your homeschool experience.
When I first started homeschooling there wasn’t much out there, to get any cooperative learning into our homeschool. I don’t know that would have taken advantage of it then either; I had some very narrow views of homeschooling in the beginning!
Over the years my kids have participated in Speech & Debate classes, writing classes, Spanish classes and drama classes. They have also been a part of history, science and creative writing coops. These coops and classes have been a blessing to my kids. They gave them an opportunity for group learning activities and learning subjects from someone with more expertise than mom could give them.
The classes gave me…dare I admit it…A BREAK! I know it is not very PHM (Perfect Homeschool Mom) of me but sometimes a break is nice.
I am giving tips on joining and organizing, even teaching, coops and classes. So come by and listen in – Incorporating Coops & Classes in Your Homeschooling.
