Boatschooling

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:

Singapore Math

A Reason for Handwriting

Sonlight for Literature and History

The Story of the World history program

Spelling Power

God’s Design for Science (from Answers in Genesis)

Biology 101 / Chemistry 101 / Physics 101 (Answers in Genesis)

Operation World

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.
