I will be the first person to acknowledge that I'm not an expert at education.  However, I have been in academia my entire life, and have taught at every level (including kindergarten, 3rd, 6th, 7th, 8th, 10th, & 11th grades, undergrad, and graduate courses- I even have some experience with academics in prison), and now I'm teaching my own littles at home.  My focus is more than just basic morality & earthly success.  Those things just aren't enough. Instead, my main focus is spiritual depth & God's purpose (2 Peter 1:12-15).  I use education as a medium to teach the most important things (characteristics I focus on) .  I don't have one philosophy for teaching.  I have many.  I use what works since each child is different. I want to share with you some of what I have been doing in our home classroom, and hopefully you can incorporate some of these activities into your own home classroom.
