  11. Homeschool Friday: Columbia Women

    To honor Women’s History Month, students will become familiar with several important women in Columbia’s history. From the founding of Columbia through modern times, women have had a significant impact on local history. We will learn about the important women who have lived and worked in Columbia. From Mary Boykin Chestnut to Dr. Matilda Arabelle Evans, we will explore the history of Columbia’s women. All homeschool students are invited to participate in Historic Columbia’s Homeschool Friday programs on the first Friday of the month. Each month’s program is from 10 - 11:30 a.m. and includes hands-on activities while students learn and explore different themes and historic sites with Historic Columbia. Homeschool Friday programs are designed for students of elementary and middle school age levels. Homeschool Friday is open to families and homeschool groups of less than 10 students. For larger groups, we recommend arranging a separate visit to explore that month's topic. Program participants should gather in the Gift Shop at Robert Mills on the day of the program unless otherwise noted. The cost is per student, with an accompanying adult free. Homeschool Fridays are $5 for members, $6 for non-members and $8 for both members and non-members at the door.

  15. Starting Homeschool this Year

    Hi Kim, Abeka and BJU Press (texts or their academies) would be your curriculum. You can choose any curriculum/resources you'd like, but you still need to register with an Option 3 association when your children turn 5 on or before Sept 1. (Or you could sign a kindergarten waiver at your local school district and not have to register until they turn 6 on or before Sept 1.) You can still learn with them all you'd like until then, but you won't have to document or register with an association yet. (And I wouldn't recommend either Abeka or BJU for children that young.) For more Beginning Homeschooling info, see: http://www.carolinahomeschooler.com/homeschool-faqs/beginning-homeschooling/ My main FAQ page is here: http://www.carolinahomeschooler.com/homeschool-faqs/ Read through those links and you'll get a better idea of what to do when the time comes. For now, I'd encourage lots of time outside at parks, zoos, children's museums, EdVenture (Columbia), Discovery Place (Charlotte), read-alouds, library visits, etc. Warmly, Dianna
  16. I’m so overwhelmed at choices. I have two toddlers aged 3 and 4 that will be starting homeschooling this year! I want to go with Option 3 for homeschooling in SC. I can’t decide between Abeka or BJU Press. Are those approved associations by South Carolina? Which ones would you prefer? I want something that’s planned out for me until they get a little older and get into the swing of homeschooling. Please help.

By learning specifics of the Civil Rights pioneers who called Columbia home, students will glean new knowledge of the origins and events of the movement. The cost is per student, with an accompanying adult free. Homeschool Fridays are $5 for members, $6 for non-members and $8 for both members and non-members at the door.

  24. Hi! I am a working mom with a 13 yo daughter that, for a few reasons, needed to leave private Christian school and do online school at home (NOT disciplinary or grade issues etc). I’m starting a new job next week and I’m faced with not having a place for my daughter to stay during the day as she doesn’t like to stay alone and I don’t want her to either. She does well in school and is a sweet, well-behaved and respectful girl. I thought maybe a homeschool family would be interested in having her join them and I could pay a bit for her care? Or perhaps someone has another idea? Any ideas appreciated! Thanks and blessings!! Amy
  25. Spartanburg, SC

    Hi ladies! I am a mom looking for options!! My daughter was in private Christian school for several years and for a few reasons I chose to move her this year. We tried another Christian school and it didn’t work out, so we are doing online school. The problem is I work full time. She used to stay w a grandparent in Gaffney while I worked there but now I’m changing jobs and will be working in Spartanburg. I need an option for my daughter during the day. She’s a super sweet girl and she mostly does well in school. If anyone has ideas, please let me know!! Thanks and blessings!! Amy
  26. Looking for friends Landrum area

    Hi Liz! I wish you were in Spartanburg! My daughter is 13 and doing online school currently. She desperately needs a friend!! Unfortunately I work full time. I am trying to figure out options for her during the day while I work. If you’re still looking for friends, maybe we could connect on a weekend? Amy
