There are so many different options that parents have when it comes to formally educating their children. Some options are traditional public schools, private schools, charter schools, and homeschooling. It can become overwhelming at times when trying to find the best option for your children. I have been sending two of my boys to a public charter school for the past 3 years. Just recently my husband and I decided that it is time to change the way that our children are being educated. In our search for a new school, I have given some thought to homeschooling. In my quest to see if a homeschooling option would be fit for us I decided to do summer home school with my kids. Our summer home school session has been a great way for me to see if this option would work for us without having the pressure of a regular academic year. To any parent considering home school, I highly recommend trying it out over the summer! There are lots of great websites with free printable worksheets, lesson plans, and affordable learning programs as well.
