Using curriculums to teach your children. A Live chat with Chloe. Series 2: Part 2
I love those moments when I speak to someone who is so different to me, and this chat just goes to show how my pleasure I get! Chloe and I have been Insta friends since 2019, and it was so amazing to sit down and have a chat about how she homeschools, and learn how she does it with 4 children using a curriculum.  I learned SO much! In fact, I even healed and had old stories I've told to myself, about myself, during this conversation! So much laugher, a few sidetracks, and definitely hard to keep to a general timeframe; because learning about how to use a curriculum became a conversation about personality, parenting styles, lifestyle and more.  A brilliant conversation and one to watch regardless if you're just starting out or not! I loved her advice at the end, to anyone who is thinking of homeschooling or pulling their kids from mainstream school:  "Read to your children. Focus on their character, rather than academics, and read to your children." --- You can reach Chloe on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/theoilyhousewife/ or you can email her: theoilyhousewife@gmail.com Her curriculum choices are: English: https://welltrainedmind.com/p/the-complete-writer-writing-with-ease-instructor-text/ Language Arts: https://www.goodandbeautiful.com/pre-k-8-curriculum/language-arts/ Maths: https://www.lifeoffred.uniquemath.com/ History: https://welltrainedmind.com/story-of-the-world/ Science: https://www.apologia.com/ ------ Series 2 is exclusively on YouTube and on the Podcast, so if you're looking for more lived experiences to help you get started on your homeschool journey then keep an eye out. Series 2 will finish early-mid Nov 2021.  If you'd like to check out Series 1: Help!
