    Default A Questionnaire, Just for Fun!

    We all homeschool differently. Please tell us about YOU! You can copy and paste the questions in a new post, or hit Reply with Quote. This isn't any kind of a formal poll from Time4Learning . . . just a way for the community to get to know each other!

    How many children will you be homeschooling for the 2015-2016 school year?

    What are their ages?

    How many of them use Time4Learning?

    How long have you been using Time4Learning?

    Do you use the program in sequence, or do you pick and choose lessons?

    Is Time4Learning your core curriculum, or do you use it to supplement another program?

    Do you have a school routine, or does your schedule differ each day?

    How often do you print reports?

    What do you use for spelling?

    Do you teach handwriting?

    What kinds of things do your kids do for P.E.?

    All of them.

    How long have you been using Time4Learning?
    This is our first year.

    We are using math in sequence. Other subjects are pick and choose.

    This is our core curriculum, but we will be using lots of supplementary material, field trips, etc.

    Do you have a school routine, or does your schedule differ each day?
    We are new to homeschooling, so we're still feeling things out. We have agreed to try starting at 8 am each day so that we have the bulk of our day free for experiential learning and play.

    Spelling City

    We belong to the YMCA and intend to use it for exercise classes and cardio equipment. We also have a pool and live in Texas, so for most of the year, we can swim. One of my daughters does gymnastics and another does dance.
