A lot of the time, the kids read and talk. Anthony draws and both and he and Jonathon write.
Nine times out of ten, we listen to music. Lately, its been Gregorian Chant, Carly Simon (You’re So Vain!), Blink 182 and The Divinyls. I know, a weird mix.
We start our journeys with prayer.
We go through stages of listening to books on CD in the car – last year it was The Series of Unfortunate Events, the Narnia series, a Harry Potter and another book by Eion Colfer.
Sometimes, I ask for a bit of silence in the car – impossible to imagine, huh?
But yesterday’s carschooling made me smile. We drove 45 minutes to my work meeting. Then the 45 minutes drive to homeschool Group Learning. We dropped off and picked up Jonathon from work.
Part of the work journey involved carschooling – yep, set by me.The kids did a medieval Crossword puzzle, that another mum had sent and asked children to finish before Group Learning that afternoon. Then Alexander read from “Understanding the Scriptures”, his religion book. He complained about the style but I said he should focus instead on the content! lol!
