Since I have decided to home school Bubba I know there a lot of things I will get to learn about as well with him. Not only will I get to learn about new things but also refresh my skills that I have not used in a long time. It is so easy to forget how to do some simple things when you don't use the skills in your everyday routine. Like last year for example I was helping one of Bubba's friends with their homework because the mom was unsure of what to do or how to help the child.
I would have to say that one thing I am really looking forward to is learning more about other countries and their holidays. For example we may be studying eypt holidays for one of his lessons in social studies. I love learning about other countries and their customs and holidays. I find it very interesting to see how our customs and holidays differ from other countries. I love to find ways to incorporate other countries customs and holidays into my family's daily calendar when we are talking about them. Like one major holiday that we do celebrate from another country every year and talk about is Cinco de Mayo.
Does your family study other countries customs and holidays? If so do you try to find a way to work some of their customs into your daily routine when talking to your children about the holidays?
