Hi everyone
The spring break is over now for our children but the schools are closed indefinitely in my area due to coronavirus.
I’ve heard the schools are planning to provide some support for our children but I’ve decided to start home-schooling my youngest daughter (grade 5) already.
My oldest daughter is in grade 12. She is pretty much graduated she said.
Well, we’ll see about that LOL but I’m not so worried about her because she is capable of studying on her own. She is taking a gap year next year so it is kind of like starting that a little early.
For my youngest daughter, we discussed about what I want her to study, what she wants to learn and also how she wants to do it.
We have...

  • Reading
  • Math (Nintendo DS, IXL)
  • English (IXL)
  • PE
  • Guitar
  • French
  • Art (Drawing, MediBang, Animation)
  • Writing (Diary)
  • Cleaning

For reading, I gathered some books that my oldest daughter read when she was around grade 5. The difficult things here is that my youngest daughter will not agree with anything that her big sister liked...like Harry Potter books... :(

For math, we both agreed to use IXL and Nintendo DS game soft.
These are both great tools.

For English, I can’t help very much because my first language is Japanese but my daughter tried English language arts on IXL and she liked it.
So, well see how this goes. We’ll get help from Dad as well.

Dad is going to be the PE teacher haha...I can only take a walk with her here and there but he can take her for a bike ride and play soccer etc.

Guitar! I’m glad my daughter added this to the list. I can only teach the basic chords and simple songs but it’ll be fun.

French...well, I don’t speak French...neither does my husband but both of my children are in French immersion. I’m hoping that my oldest daughter can help with this by chitchatting and writing a dairy with her.

Art! My oldest daughter is an artist and she tutors weekly. Well, she is out of her tutoring job now so I thought it is a good idea to keep her busy as well hehe.
My youngest daughter wants to learn how to draw with MediBang (digital drawing app) and also how to create simple animation.

For writing, keeping a diary in English and French for now.

CLEANING!!! This is the most important part of the learning!
Hopefully she can keep up with her daily chores.

Well, she doesn’t need to do all of these every day.
The goal is for her to self start and self study. She will be choosing what she wants to do every day, writing them down and circle them when she is done to earn points.
Although, some subjects haven’t been taught at school yet. I’ll have to find the good approach to teach her.

I just realized that I forgot to add cooking and science experiment to the list.
Well, she is already doing some experiments on her own and making huge mess. I might need to re-think about that but that would be fun to do as well.
Just don’t leave your children with water and cornstarch mixture like I did xD
It’s super safe but super messy xD
Wish me luck!

皆さん、こんにちは。
子供たちの春休みは終わりましたが、コロナの影響で私たちの住んでいる地域の学校は引き続きお休みです。
学校側では何かのサポートを予定しているみたいなのですが、まだ少し先のことになりそうなので、5年生の次女ちゃん用にホームスクールを始めることにしました。
長女ちゃんは高校3年生で、本人いわく、すでに卒業は決まっているとかで、本当に大丈夫なのか分かりませんが、勉強は自分でする子なので大丈夫だということにしておきます。
来年はギャップイヤーを取る予定なので、それがちょっと早く始まったと思えば少し気分が落ち着きます。
けれど彼女のバイト先もコロナの影響でお店を閉めているので、外出も自粛しないとですし、毎日退屈なんですよね。
次女ちゃんとは話し合っていろいろと試してみることにしました。
-読書
-算数(ニンテンドーDS、IXL)
-英語(IXL)
-体育
-ギター
-フランス語
-アート(お絵描き、MediBang、アニメーション)
-日記
-掃除

読書は、長女ちゃんが5年生くらいの時に読んでいた本をかき集めてみました。面倒なことに次女ちゃんは、長女ちゃんが熱中していたものを嫌います。ハリーポッターとか良いなと思うのですが、見向きもしません。

算数はニンテンドーDSのゲームソフトと、IXLというオンラインのプログラムを使うことにしました。

英語は私には教えられないのですが、IXLの英語を試してみたら面白いというので、これで行きます。パパにもお願いします。

体育はたんに身体を動かす時間ですが、パパにお願いしました。私は散歩くらいしか出来ませんが、パパならサッカーやサイクリングくらいなら出来るでしょう。

ギター!!!次女ちゃんがギターをやりたいと言ってくれて、とても嬉しい私です。
簡単なコードと簡単な曲しか教えられませんが、楽しくなると思います。

フランス語。。。私も主人もフランス語は話せないのですが、娘たちはフレンチイマージョンの学校に通っているので、授業をフランス語で受けています。
これは長女ちゃんにお願いして、お喋りと日記付けでもと思っています。

アート!長女ちゃんは普段、アートの家庭教師をしているのですが、コロナの影響でこれもお休み。丁度良いので次女ちゃんをお願いすることにしました。
次女ちゃんは MediBang(デジタルのお絵描きアプリ)の使い方と簡単なアニメーションを習いたいと言っています。

日記。。。英語で書くのも良いですね。

掃除!掃除!!!これ、一番大切です、笑
言われなくても出来る様になると良いです。

これを毎日全部やれと言うわけではありません。目標はセルフスタート、セルフスタディ。
毎日リストの中からいくつか選んで書き出し、それを自分で実行してやり遂げられるよう。。。頑張ってもらいたい。。。
まだ習っていないこともあるので、その辺は工夫して教えないとですが、私も頑張ります。

あ、そういばクッキングがリストに入っていないですね。サイエンスも。。。
まあ、次女ちゃんはすでに何かの実験を始めては家中散らかしているので、これはどうしようかなぁ〜
水とコーンスターチの実験はお気をつけくださいね。
とっても安全ですが、とっても散らかります、笑

i enjoyed reading your experience. we have same situation here except my girl is 10 y.o and we have much smaller subjects list .

CLEANING!!! This is the most important part of the learning!

cool. is it really on the school list, or are you joking?.. I wish my girl has more serious attiture to wards this! heh...
no drawing, no arts, no music lessons in her curriculum. 'the sighseeing' - a silly substitute to 'History' (mixed with Biology?!.. and god knows what else).

Russian language, English language and Reading. and no PE > thats all :/

My youngest daughter is 10 years old as well!
I learned to clean at school when I was a child (in Japan) I just added cleaning to the list hoping she can get around to it...at least her own mess.
I'm happy if she can do half of what we planned xD

if she can do hard

oh. did you mean, half?..

Half yes half xD

My oldest daughter is in grade 12. She is pretty much graduated she said.

does 'grade' mean 'class'?.. is 12 the final one, and why she's taking a gap next year?

Grade 12 is the last grade in high school. She is 17 years old.
She wants to take a year off before attending college so she can work, save money and travel. Although, it might be hard even to work with coronavirus situation right now :(

aaa! totally understand now. its a super great (and very wise) idea. I did it myself (not willingly). I had to work before I could enter a college for 2 years, and when I started studies -- I eventually noticed my brains/mind 'matured a bit more' than my classmates had it, just coming there from their scool classes. and I felt that made some difference. going to college not right after the school, makes you more oriented, more well-knowing what do you want to get , from the life, makes some of life's marks more visible.

good morning!

I totally agree with you. Gap year is something I wish I had when I was that age. We don't have such things in Japan. I was too immature to figure thing out back then :(

Wonderful plan, with Mom to oversee that it works..😊🙀

Thank you!
It is hard though...not having friends around...I'm happy if she can do half of what we planned.

素晴らしい!ホームスクーリングアイディアですね!!ぜんぶ楽しそう〜。
ニンテンドーの算数とか体育とか、おとなもやってみたくなります。これならきっと娘さん達もたのしんでくれますよ〜^_^
掃除、、、。確かに大切です。気合いが入りますよね!必要なものまで断捨離してしまわないように気をつけてます。笑

なんでもゲーム感覚で覚えるのが楽しいですよね。
勉強なんてイヤダぁ~と言われないように工夫するのは大変です。
あはは、、、私も物を片付けるのは得意なのですが、後で見つからなくて困ります^^;
