Wow, seems strange not to have the old posts, but we just have to start a new.

Where are all the home school moms? How is your year going so far?

So far so good, 3 weeks in and going full swing.
We are a little un-usual as we actually have teachers (2) come in and teach the
last 5 left at home.
We have a building (schoolhouse) and the kids leave every morning and come "home"
at noon. Nice break.
Looking forward to the forum and new look.

Glad to see other homeschoolers posting here. I homeschool my DD who is now in 7th Grade. We have really good days and some, well not as good. But, there are not too many of the not so good days. We always find ways to use our Cricut for school. We decorate our bulletin board each month, currently we are decorating notebooks for class here. We have just discovered vinyl and are redecorating DD's room and vinyl is now in our homeschool room as well.

I am a homeschooling mom in Box Elder, South Dakota (right outside Rapid City). I homeschooled my older son (now in college) and am currently homeschooling my younger son who is in 10th grade. We started about 2 weeks ago and so far it is ok. We'll see how is goes when the writing assignments start coming fast and furious. LOL.

Glad to see there is an area for homeschoolers on this mb.

Hello everyone! I home school my DS who has just started 6th grade. We finished up our second week on Friday. So far, so good. We do a combination of virtual school and independent courses using the k12 curriculum. This will be our third year. We love it! Looking forward to getting to know everyone this year. Have a great weekend!

My DS is studying U.S. History last year and this year. We used the Cricut and the My World cartridge to make some artwork for his history notebook. We celebrated Constitution Day on Friday studying about the Constitution, even though he already studied it last year. It was a refresher course. We used the We the People, George Washington, and Capitol Building cuts to decorate his history notebook and journal. It was lots of fun! We plan to use this cart, Locker Talk, and Cursive to decorate more of his notebooks and journals.

I'm homeschooling our youngest again this year who is in 7th grade. We are off to a great start - we never start until after Labor Day. I have homeschooled all three of our children at different times during their school careers. This is our youngest's 6th year of being homeschooled. He enjoys doing research on things that interest him. That is one of the things that I love the most about Homeschooling - the fact that we can go off on a tangent to explore something of interest! We have used 50 States for several different projects! It's such a great cartridge!

Happy to see there are so many of us here...looking for ways to use the Cricut in our homeschools will be fun.

I wish I had the Cricut in those early years...what a great visual aid it would have been.

This is our second year homeschooling and we're loving it! Last year was one of major changes and transition for us, so this year I felt like we got a fresh start. We revamped our organizational system and it's been great (there's a post about it on my blog). Haven't really used the Cricut a whole lot for homeschooling yet, but I can't wait to figure out ways to incorporate it, as I know it can be done!

Wrapping up our 4th week of homeschooling this year. I can't believe we have been doing it for 9 years. This year I am homeschooling my ds - 10th and two dd - 7 and 4. Hope to make some friends on the boards.

Time is flying by...

We had our first field trip of the school year. We went with friends up to Ft McHenry in Baltimore for a private tour with a friend of ours from church. He is a volunteer ranger at the park. It was fabulous...even our two sons got to participate in the flag change.
Here they are unfurling the flag they will hang and the next shot is of the flag flying over the fort.

Our year is going smoothly so far here. This is my second year homeschooling. I have a 1st grader and a kindergartner that I school, as well as a 2 yr old and a 4 month old that we try to keep entertained while we school. We're all enjoying our new school routine. We'll be starting our 5th week on Monday.

So glad to see so many homeschoolers here!

So far, so good. I just found this thread, so wasn't on any of the old ones. Home schooling is down to three kids now (oldest is in college - home school from 6th - 12th grades). Another graduates this year. Two high school age, one middle school. Wow - time is flying.

Very cool field trip listed above - Jeanne Lee - bet it is one they will remember.

What school type stuff does everyone use their cricut for? Other than my adhesive, pens, and papers, my kids haven't used my cricuts (yep - two of them, baby and expression) for much that is actually "school" but use them for signs, banners, and all sorts of 'club type' activities.

Why not get rid of one? Because we often have both going at once when doing the signs and banners for clubs BigGrin BigGrin

We're in upstate NY an ready to start wk 4 of school. We have 4 kids: DD in 9th, DD in 7th, DD in 5th, and DS in 4th this year. We use A Beka online streaming and it has worked very well for us!!

My E gets used for our bulletin board and for lettering on their projects. My middle DD's love to use my bug with PDDU and EDPD, though that's not really school related.

We have a weekly choir/PE time with other HSers in our church so that is a lot of fun. This way they 'learn to socialize.' Cool Does that comment and/or question bother any of the rest of you?? It drives me crazy! Angry Sorry for the soapbox moment... Blushing

I am new to cricut. I have homeschooled my kids their whole life..I have 6th, 5th and 4th. We started three weeks ago and things are going good. We are from Oklahoma. I am a preachers wife and am trying to figure out ways to make money using my cricut (that I got a couple of weeks ago!!) I have found sooo many wonderful ideas from the Cricut Community!!!

Hi April, its nice to meet you!

I know lots of folks here make and sell stuff, but I haven't done it.
(search for it on the Cricut board, hopefully you will find a ton of helpful posts!)

We are in our fifth week and we have a paper to get through from their trip to Ft McHenry last week. Do you all know anything about resistant writers?? Glare
