Last August we embarked on a new homeschooling journey. For our first 2 years of homeschooling we used a curriculum called K12. But then we heard of this amazing group of homeschoolers in our area that meets weekly – and they were doing a curriculum called Classical Conversations . After looking over the curriculum – we were excited to join!
Every Tuesday for 24 weeks my children attended this class from 9am-12pm. All of the mothers attend and stay with their children. Some of the subjects we covered in class were history, geography, latin, math, grammar, anatomy, geomotry, music, art, and science.
Each week all the students did a 2 minute presentation on an assigned topic.
When class ended at noon the children went to play on some indoor slides (inside the church where we meet) for 30 minutes.
Then we went to the cafeteria for lunch!
We also used the “Rod and the Staff” English, Grammar, Phonics and Handwriting curriculum and Saxon Math Workbooks.
Last spring I did a 5 part video series with some of our thoughts on homeschooling.
Part 3 – Our Daily Homeschool Schedule and Curriculum - we have changed curriculums this year – the updated video below explains it all!
Since the video from Part 3 has changed, I thought I’d make an updated video about our homeschool changes this year (including some samples of what Classical Conversations School work looks like) and the one change we plan to make for next school year.

Tomorrow I’ll share pictures of us doing school at home. If you homeschooled this year – how did it go? Is there anything you loved and would like to recommend? Share it with us!
