With this school year quickly coming to an end, many homeschoolers are in the process of planning exciting new learning experiences and educational activities for next year!

So it seems like a great time to show you guys some of the learning activities that we have used in Bethany’s special needs homeschooling program!

Special Needs Homeschooling Curriculum 3

 

Just because I am no longer legally required to homeschool Bethany and even thought we had a high school graduation party for her last summer,  doesn’t mean her educational experiences are over.

It just means that now I have the freedom to plan learning activities and experiences that are truly enjoyable for her, suit her needs, and are meaningful and relevant to her life!

I love not having to worry about how many hours she spends doing required academics or sending in progress reports of the goals she’s been working on!!

It’s kind of awesome!!

Bethany currently functions at the preschool-Kindergarten grade level.

She’s still learning simple one digit addition and subtraction problems and attempting to blend letter sounds into simple CVC words like cat, dog, pot, etc…

She also forgets what she has learned quite easily, so I’m constantly looking for fresh new special needs homeschooling curriculum ideas and activities to present the same concepts to her over and over again without boring her!

While I have given up trying to teach her concepts like how to count change or tell time, I do believe that I will never stop trying to teach her how to read!

Reading is so important and enjoyable to her father and me that we hope someday she’ll be able to enjoy reading as well!

And now, without further adieu, below is…

    How wonderful not to have to send in reports any more. Although in England we don’t need to do anything at all in terms of formal reporting, we are now reaching an age with my oldest three that they are needing to jump through a few hoops in order to reach their goals. So for the first time ever I am needing to plan their education in order to pass exams and be accepted to universities. It’s kind of scary, but exciting at the same time (iykwim). I love all the resources you have chosen. I hope you and Bethany have a wonderful time this year without any constrictions!

      I think it’s very important that we teach our kids everything they need to know for important tests like these or we are doing them a great disservice. Even though I preferred unschooling, I always made sure my kids would be able to pass the required Math and Language Arts tests every year!
