I am trying to finish our homeschooling year for my 6 yr old daughter and 8 yr old son. We have been using A Beka workbooks for Arithmetic, and Language and Science and Bob Jones for Spelling and History. I am behind schedule for this school year and just plain "burned-out". I don't know whether or not we should stop now for the summer and finish our grade levels next school year or try to homeschool thru the summer to be able to start our next grade level on time or frankly just give up.
I've tried both approaches to homeschooling -regimented and less regimented. When I try to relax and be a little less regimented I feel so unorganized. I'm so worried that one or both of my children are going to miss something important. This is why we're behind. I'll be really regimented for a few weeks, then we get burnt out and grumpy so I'll loosen up our schoolwork, only to find my self even more frustrated b/c I feel like they're behind.
Please someone tell me that I'm over thinking this. I guess I just honestly don't know what style of homeschooling works best for us. I need Help, Encouragement, SOMETHING, PLEASE!!!
This one of my favourite "how to homeschool" books; We have read this over and over, discussed it as a support group; It is well loved, dog-eared and highlighted!
