When you are the homeschool community, you find others who are like you. You find families, that may have different viewpoints, but the end goal is to provide a great education for our children. I was so happy to find that when meeting the author of Home School Farm, Amy Doeun from Crazy Boy Farm. I can't wait to tell you all about this book!
Now, I call this a book, but Amy didn't just write a book, she wrote a year-round unit study of types. She takes us month by month on living on a farm and includes monthly and seasonal activities that will bring learning into real life.
After a brief introduction, Amy starts off with January and the excitement that the month holds. We continue through the months with some fun breaks for different topics throughout. Each month includes a little introduction and then it hops into the study for the month. Amy covers every subject even down to some fun activities to keep the kids interested in what they are they doing.
There are 6 different mini topics that pop up through the year, these are; Budgets, Loss/Death, Abundance, Throwback Farming, Passion and Seasons. While these are not like the monthly sections that include Unit Studies with all the subjects broken down, they give you some great ideas for each topic and tell why they are important within the family and home. I have really enjoyed these breaks and each one applied to my life in some way or another.
Amy has taken the ho hum of farm life and shown what you can do for homeschooling and family learning by expanding on what you are already learning. She gives you ideas and resources so that you can expand on. I personally remember learning half of these lessons while working on my family farm. I have been super excited to start my children in on the learning and this book makes it possible for me to do so without a lot of extra planning!
