Commence the Terrifying New School Year {I think}

Commence the Terrifying New School Year {I think}

I begin homeschooling our youngest in a few weeks.

Confession: I am TERRIFIED of teaching my son!

He is a sweet little guy, but he is not near as interested in school and learning as his older sister was when I taught her. My daughter would BEG me to teach her more than I had planned each day. We finished an entire year of work in less than 3 months and I spent the remainder of the school year “supplementing”. My dear, sweet son on the other hand, answers questions wrong {on purpose} and will redirect the questions and say things like, “Hmm…Mom, why don’t you do it?” {insert sigh of defeat}.

I am so afraid I will not be the teacher he needs or that I will not reach him and his learning style.

What if I am not preparing him well enough for the future!?

Right now I am creating new resources for our classroom. As I create worksheets and supplemental activities for him, I will be blogging about them {and our many adventures} and posting them here.

As a former classroom teacher, I am keenly aware of what needs to be used in the classroom. As a homeschool teacher and parent, I realize that there are different needs when you only have one learner in the classroom. Therefore, the resources I create will be usable both in the classroom and in a homeschool setting. Additionally, these resources are also good for supplemental activities for parents wanting to give their children an extra boost.

Here is a free sample from the Back-to-School Color by number and letter sheets.

Coloring is one of my favorite activities. And these worksheets are both fun and educational! Win-Win, right!? They are great for Back-to-School and involve students coloring using a key. The coloring sheets use both upper and lowercase letters and numbers 1-9. I have a

    This is exactly why I don’t homeschoolm own students. I sadly have more patience in the classroom, and I know it. It is so hard to get my son to buckle down and focus.

      Yes, Amy, I am really anxious about what this year will look like. I think I will have to be a lot more patient and adapt more than I’ve ever had to do in the past.
      I’ll keep you posted, though! 😉

We'd love to hear your thoughts!
