Kubes' Homeschool Haven
Our warmest greetings!
We're glad you stopped by.
"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it"
"And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart; And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up" Deuteronomy 6:6,7
We are the "HsKubes" family. Although there were many reasons we decided to homeschool, the above verses are what started us on our journey. God commands us to train and diligently teach our children. In Psalm 127:3&4, God tells us that our children are an heritage of the LORD, the fruit of the womb is His reward, and they are arrows in our hands. We believe the best way to answer God's call, to diligently train and teach them, is to be at home with them.
We are currently in our 9th year of home educating our wonderful gifts! Our eldest daughter, Ally, is fourteen and at an 11th grade level, our son, Will, is nine and at a 4th grade level, Beth is five and Carolynne is three.
Both are learning naturally
and developing a love for learning. *‹*

Our Typical Homeschool Day
There really isn't a 'typical' day in our home. Each day can prove to be different than the last.
We hold a flexible routine
but below is the framework of our days:
6am to 7:30 ~ Mom rises, coffee & quiet time.
Children slowly arise from their slumber
8am to 9am ~ Eat breakfast, dress, & household duties
Children also have quiet time.
9am to 10am ~ Proverbs time - we read the chapter of the day and illustrate a verse for our Proverbs notebook.
We also have a snack & free time.
10am to noon ~ school subject time.
The children work on what they can alone
and Mom guides, instructs, or reads aloud as needed.We do not necessarily do every subject every day.We tend to alter days and subjects.
Noon to 1pm ~ Lunch and play time!
1pm to 2pm ~ Read aloud 'school work' with Mom.
This could be in Science, History, etc...
2pm to 4pm ~ Enrichment time where the children
can read, have creative play, write,
do a craft, listen to books on tape,
pursue a hobby, educational games, etc...
4pm to 4:30pm ~ Read aloud with Mom
5pm to 5:30pm ~ Clean up for Daddy time & supper prep.
5:30pm to 7:45pm ~ Daddy home! Flexible till bedtime beginnings.
Bedtimes: Lil' girls - 7:45pm
Young lad - 8pm to 8:30pm
Young lady - 9:00pm
Do not be a slave to a schedule.
Be sure to spend quality time with your children
and truly enjoy them.
They are, after all, rewards to us from the Lord!
Let's see them as such *‹*
I would like to recommend some reading materials that have been very encouraging to me as a homeschooling mother. Whether you are new to homeschooling or a homeschooling veteran, you will find wonderful encouragement in these books.
