6 Years of Homeschooling

Finally, we started another homeschool year! My eldest Gabi is now on his 7th Grade and my #LittleManGael is officially homeschooling too as a Preschooler!

I'm the type of person who prefers to have everything mapped out on paper from the beginning whenever we start our homeschooling.  I like planning and organizing and I don't like to do things on the fly. Although through the years, I learned also to be flexible, to give room for adjustments and changes along the way and when necessary. So, after preparing all the materials, books and prereading, we're off to a new start!

3D Origami by Gabi

Since there is no gadget time for my boys, both of them made use of their time to create. Gabi recently learned about 3D origami and he is just unstoppable.

SketchUp by Gabi

SketchUp is a premier 3D design software where you can make 3D drawings. This is one of the life skills we have scheduled for Gabi once a week. There is no particular task, he can just play around with it and the idea is just to create anything as his output.
