Homeschool Day 7:
Bye-bye science curriculum. You came highly recommended by moms who enjoyed great success with your detailed diagrams and fully stocked supply kit. I looked forward to seeing the same results with my son and fantasized about exciting experiments that would help us unlock the mysteries of the universe.
I just forgot to factor in one important thing: I'm terrible at science. I took both chemistry and physics in summer school so that I (and my parents) could avoid spending an entire school year in misery.
I realized yesterday that we were headed for disaster when I noted how many times I said (out loud), "Huh. Well, that doesn't make sense." Not a good way to get your child excited about the subject matter.
My sister gave me some of her old homeschool supplies that included a science curriculum that might be a better fit for us. I'm looking forward to giving it a try.
Hopefully it will make sense.
