We’re just beginning our tenth year of “homeschooling,” but since we’re on a boat, “boatschooling” seems like a more appropriate term. Here’s a little info to answer a few common questions.
Some of our current curriculum includes:
A Reason for Handwriting
Sonlight for Literature and History
The Story of the World history program
God’s Design for Science (from Answers in Genesis)
Biology 101 / Chemistry 101 / Physics 101 (Answers in Genesis)
Apologia Marine Biology
Abeka Grammar and Composition
Lift Up Your Eyes on High: Understanding the Stars
Excellence in Literature
Spanish and other languages through Duolingo. We actually had to set boundaries on their language studies. They are required to study a certain number of Spanish lessons first before they can work on a language of their choice in their free time. French, Japanese, Italian and Irish (and a little German) are all in use on the boat. Some days can actually get pretty confusing!
Other subjects/interests include art, AWANA, writing, and Junior Ranger books from National Parks.
We also enjoy “worldschooling” – studying about where we are, where we’re going, what’s going on around us, and what the kids are interested in.
