i feel like it’s about time i did a blog on this seeing that people are always asking me about it. I have been homeschooling my 8year old son since May 2019 and people love to ask why and what you do..
learning starts at 9:30am….August we are only doing math,english,history and reading because of it being school 6 week holiday. Back to normal september.
The main subjects we do are math and english. The school liam used to go to told me that he was unteachable so they just left liam to his own (playing lego). I have had to start from age 3+ and now he is on +5 math and english. He is also using readingeggs ,mathseeds and just started on IXL on english. We do this every monday to friday morning to 12pm.
His reading is getting better…from when we started. We go the the library two times a month.
We go on a trip out once a month.
Does art and craft with his nan.
For computer science he using edplace and reading (I’m reading) Horrible Science.
Liam was told he could not do history in school because he could not read or write (by a teacher). I have got him into the tv show Horrible Histories and also the books. Starting in september liam will be learning about egypt (for a month).
geography – he has learned about water and where it starts and ends (from the moors to the reservoir), earthquakes and next month volcanos.
every month Liam picks his own subject. last month it was Tanks
and next month its age on games/films and copyright.
STUFF I GET ASKED ABOUT ALOT…
- do you need a Degree to teach – no
- does he still see people and go outside – yes
- is homeschooling hard – yes but seeing him learning makes you proud.
- do you have to pay for everything – yes.
- can you still work and homeschool – yes.
- does he have to do his gcse – only if you want to. He can do them in collage.
- why do you homeschool- he was getting badly bullied and school was not sticking to the EHCP Education, Health and Care Plan. Main reason why >> https://keys1988.com/2019/05/25/big-update-on-liam/
I just spent maybe a hour in tears. I don’t want to tell people why but sometimes i feel like why the hell do i try my best. This year has been a hard one and i kind of want it to just end. My birthday is on the 15th and i just want it to pass (working on that day).
feel sick as a dog….
After fighting for a month I won my ebay case and got my money off that woman who would not pay me because the google mini was late.
Thank you for contacting eBay customer support for the item “Google Home Mini” (item number 273903524950) that you have sold to the buyer “poolemad”. My name is Shilpa and I am pleased to assist you in this case.
Kera, I have gone through the case details and I can see that buyer has received the item. In this situation, I have closed the case in your favour and your funds will be released within 24-48 hours in your PayPal account.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation in this matter. I trust my communication was clear and I was able to resolve your concern up to your satisfaction level. Thank you for choosing eBay.
I just want to say sorry for not blogging a lot on here. I really
don’t have a clue what to put in here seeing that there is not alot going on in
my life right now.
If i’m honest with you sexy people…This year has been a hell of a ride.
I do notice that a lot of people from the uk like to come onto this page (just to be nosey lol). I have a funny feeling it’s got something to do with me home-schooling Liam (what is going well).
Just be careful on ebay. I sold a Google Mini to a woman from huddersfield and because it came a day late she wants her money back and she has reported me to ebay after admitting to getting it a day late (meaning she has the Google Mini).
I did send her a email to even say it was going to be late because i’ve been abit busy but got nothing back.
I told her that because she has the item i am not giving back her money or if she wants her money just send me back my Google mini i sold. Taken the ebay app off my phone so i don’t see her emails and just gonna use the site to buy..
This is the first time since ever starting on ebay (started around 2014) that I have had this prob. i mostly get lovely comments and thank you but only because it was late.
WHAT I LEARNED – pay for tracking because you never know who your selling to.
i think i need to give people a update on what is going on right now. well first i have some really good news.
i had a meeting with the homeschool and SEND officers. There happy with everything we are doing and even the homeschool officer took down the name’s of the websites i use to give to other parents. We also found out that liam is on HIGH priority on his EHCP (education health and care plan). The SEND officer was shocked that liam has not been tested for autism, ADHD and sensitivity but like i said i have been fighting for years but NHS just won’t help us. I’m still fighting to get liam into a special needs school but because the rule’s are getting harder to get into them schools there is a 100% liam will not get into one.
oh and the boy who went for my son’s face has been removed from the school.
Well I can finally say that Liam is no longer part of his old school. I got the email on Monday after I had to contact the school by email to see if they had signed him off.
But its not all good news. Liam is
having problems with anxiety. We had one attack last Monday what ended up with
him hitting himself and today we had a day of him digging his nails into his
legs. I went to the doctors last week but they were no help. I do have a number
I found off the NHS website so going to give them a buzz. I’m trying very hard
not to put to much stress on him but I also no that he thinks he’s dumb (what
