The new school year means Co-op! Like last year both Honey (6) and Biggun (14) will be taking co-op. If you are not familiar with what a co-op is let me explain. Co-op is when parents (or adults) get together and teach a group of kids, that may or may not be their own children. Example Honey can take a class called Magnets for Kids and this class might include all the different ways magnets work in the world. A very hands on kind of class. Or Biggun could take a class on Teen Business. Teaching him how to create his own business and thrive with it.
Last year Biggun took a class about sign language, both first and second semester. It amazes me what all they learn in co-op. He was surprised when he took a literature class, based on the book Boys of Grit, and he actually liked it. Being that he is not a big reader I was very happy with the outcome of the class.
I am willing to do what ever I have to do to have my kids go to co-op. It is a great way for them to socialize and learn about things that I am not able to teach or they would learn better from someone else. All the while I still am able to teach my children the way God has lead me to.
Love the freedom of homeschooling.
