For those of you that don't already know we are homeschoolers. This time of year everyone is talking about back to school. Homeschoolers are talking about school rooms, curriculum choices, and a host of other discussions.

So, in keeping with that I thought I would share a little bit about what we do and why.

This year we chose a different curriculum thanks to a close friend. We are doing KONOS! There are also 2 other families from our church using this curriculum. The 3 of us get together once a week. We all started up 2 weeks ago. I have found this curriculum to be very freeing. KONOS is a unit study for those of you that are wondering.

Now, while KONOS is awesome it does not cover phonics or math. So, we do those subjects first thing in the morning and Konos in the afternoon. For math we are using Saxon math. Phonics is covered in Sing,Spell,Read, Write. Also for my older son I am using I simply plug in the Konos vocabulary words and off he goes.

The afternoon is filled with Konos activites.

Of course we also do chores throughout the day. Laundry is an all day affair.

Morning school takes place at the dining room table for all of the kids with my oldest switching to the computer for spelling. Konos activities are all over the house, yard, and other places. Most of them are right in our own living room!

So, there you have it. What we use and where we school. So much fun and excitement!

So, what are you using this year? Or, are you sending your kiddos off to school?
