Real Life Homeschool: What Do the Children Have to Say


Real Life Homeschool Blog Hop












Welcome to Day 4 and 5 of the Real Life Homeschool Blog Hop with the Schoolhouse Review Crew!  The plan was to share interviews with the children yesterday and today. However, yesterday we had unexpected company, so I didn’t get a chance to post before leaving for Chuck E. Cheese. 





I asked some other homeschool moms what they thought would be some fun questions to ask the children. I had a wonderful response and wasn’t able to use all of the questions. Here is what the children had to say. I had to include Hannah and Harold, but be warned, some answers are a bit…well…unique.





Interview with Tabitha (age 8):





What is your favorite thing about homeschooling?





That we don’t have to start as early, because I don’t usually get enough sleep.





What is your least favorite thing about homeschooling?





Workboxes.





Why?





Because they are boring.





How would you like me to make them more fun?





At the end of workbox number 4 we could have a craft that goes with the lesson of the Bible notebooks. 





Our schedule just changed recently, what do you like about this new schedule?





It helps me get a little more sleep because we get to bed earlier. Cause we wake up earlier and the earlier we get up, the tireder we’ll be at night. 





What did you like about the old schedule?





That we could start our workboxes in the afternoon and not have too much stress.





What is your favorite thing to do when it is not lesson time?





Play video games. 





Do you have a favorite video game?





Yes, Super Mario 64.





What do you think you are learning while you do this?





 That video games are awesome.  Dad makes it look so easy, but Bowser is really hard to defeat.





What would our day look like if you planned it?





We’d wake up at 8:30, we’d come downstairs after getting dressed. Get our socks and shoes on. Eat breakfast. Clean off the table. Sit down at the table for school. 





School time:





Pray


Pledge of Allegiance


Pledge to the Bible

There’s nothing much that I don’t like. Math is what I don’t like the most. I like math, but not as much as all the others.





What do you think they do in public school?





I think they do a lot of writing. I think they have to buy lunch sometimes if they forget theirs. Sometimes in their lessons I think they do something with science and math.  I’m glad that we’re homeschooled because I don’t want to get up that early.





Why do you think we homeschool?





Because at public school people don’t really trust in God. And because you don’t want us too stressed and there’s a lot of writing and if we have to write we won’t have much time to spend with you during the day.
