I was reading on our local ICAN forum board yesterday about what kids had to say about homeschooling, and it made me want to ask my kids what they really think about homeschooling. Haden seemed pretty intrigued with the idea of being interviewed for my blog, and even more amused that I typed as he spoke and wrote all of his words down. 🙂
Me: What is your favorite part about homeschooling? What do you like about it?
Haden: I love school. I like that we hang decorations. I like that I can give you letters and I get to wear my new clothes. I love playing outside, and pretending I’m going grocery shopping and being an explorer when it is a sunny day and not muddy. I like that I don’t have to go to public school.
Me: What don’t you like about the idea of public school?
Haden: That you have to stay there a looong time, and when you get home it is like dinner time.
Me: What is you least favorite part about homeschooling? What don’t you like?
Haden: I don’t like when I have to do a lot, and I didn’t like that game where I had to stop and go. (It was a game like Red Light, Green Light, but using it as a word game. He was not a fan. LOL)
Me: What is your favorite subject to do? Why?
Haden: I really like doing handwriting. Cause I just love writing. I like to write letters and I’m going be a letterman when I grow up. I will write letters to all the people I know – like Ashley, Tyler and Laura and Wendy and Dickie.
I had hoped to ask more questions, like “What has been your favorite project so far?” and “What would you like to learn more about?” Haden called our interview to an end though. He said the rain was getting to him and making him grumpy, and that he needed a break! 😛
I tried to get Addison involved in the conversation, so when I asked her what she liked about homeschooling, this is how the conversation went…
Addison: Uuuummm…. Gigi’s House!
Me: You don’t do school at Gigi’s house, but I guess you could. What else do you like?
Addison: Cinderella! Me watch Cinderella! Please!!!
Me: You want to watch Cinderella?
So, there you have it! That is why my kids like homeschooling!
