  1. You are so helpful.

  2. Nice list Chris.. I tried home schooling my boys last year… er, it was not that successful.. blogging and online activities kept me from continuing our projects and all..

    seeing now how happy they are meeting friends and having new experiences it heir school.. tama na din na di ko tinuloy silang i home school.. I am not against it lalo na kung well disciplined ang nanay na magtuturo.. and un talaga ang kailangan haha..

    tomorrow is Linggo ng Wika celeb, and the boys are participating in their sholl program.. isipin mo kung home schooled pa rin sila hindi nila mararanasan un hehe

    Make or Break

  3. Thank you for this list of homeschooling info, Chris! I am actually beginning to consider the idea for CJ.

    The award you passed to me is up on my blog. Thanks.

  4. ey Chris.. no I did not use any curriculum during those time, I just did my research and made my own.. about.com is very helpful when it comes to homeschooling šŸ™‚

    and no I did not join any groups din hehe.. kaya siguro it was not that fun, as I have said I lack the discipline to teach them šŸ™‚

    Make or Break

    And for when the kids aren't being schooled, here's my TT this week: Thirteen Fun Sites for Totally Wasting Time.

    You guys with kids really needed that, huh? LOL.

    Happy TT!

    wow thank you for sharing this. I am planning to homeschool my kid too. I have an entry for TT! see you…

  10. my son was previously enrolled in a progressive school but we transferred him to a traditional school. i'm thinking of homeschooling him but i am hesitant to do it because he might have a hard time in college.

    Homeschooling is a big decision and an even bigger commitment. Good luck with whatever you decide.

  12. Thanks for sharing this list. My preschoolers are not homeschooled, pero minsan I also check on homeschool activities that would help them to enjoy learning even more!

  13. Thank you very much for including me in your list! I really appreciate it. God bless you!

  14. I love your blog, by the way, nice template.

  15. I have spoken to some friends who send their children to Akademeia in UP Village. They mentioned that it is a good middle ground for those who want to homeschool their children but are not quite ready to pull their children out of a school setting. The class sizes are small and parents are welcome to teach modules, become mentors, or volunteer in other means. My friends' children love it when mommy and daddy are around to share knowledge and talent. Thing is, their curriculum is enhanced. Your child needs to be highly able to succeed in the school environment. Not so much that they have to be driven academically because my friends' kids always have stories about projects and shows and field trips so they seem pretty well-rounded but more that they are open-minded, curious, and willing to learn. Obviously, this is a non-trad school. Anyway, I am considering putting my kids there next year so I thought I'd share.

  16. Hi, I tried to post earlier but when I returned, it wasn't here. I guess I did something wrong. I don't usually post so I'm unfamiliar with these things. I'm sharing because I am considering enrolling my children in Akademeia next school here. My friends have kids there and both parents and kids are happy. According to them, this non-trad school is the best halfway point to homeschooling as parents are allowed to teach modules, volunteer, mentor, etc – which works for me because I am hesitant to completely pull my children out of the school set-up. The school have a enriched curriculum and they do IEPs and curriculum compaction and differentiation. When I talk to their kids, they have lots of stories about field trips, projects, etc and they seem to have a lot of fun. The school has a small population so it is really more of a homeschooling or family environment, which works best for me. Hope this helps.

  17. @ Anya, please leave me a place where i can contact you, like a website or an email address. Thanks!

  18. Chris, sorry, like I said I am unfamiliar with these things. I surf primarily for information and do not really network or blog much. Sorry, I do not have a website but you can email me at anyaledesma@gmail.com. I am thrilled to come across other families who want the same things I do. Hope we find what we are looking for.

  19. Hi Chris! Do you have any contact for Akademeia? I would highly appreciate it since my toddler is insisting that she goes to school!
