Homeschool Tidbits: A Photo-journey (SY 2013-2014)

I love taking photos of RD’s daily activities. I love to document whatever he’s doing so I can also showcase some of them during his portfolio review. When we first started, he would get annoyed at my having to take pictures, but became used to it as time went on. Here are a collection of pictures I’ve taken over the past few months we’ve had homeschool this year. Enjoy!

  1. Hello! I’m a Japanese mother of four children, aged 3, 5, 7, and 9 yo. So glad to find your blog(thought homeschool is not popular in the Philippines). We’re transferring to Negros next month, and looking for homeschool groups or meet-ups when considering homeschooling option. Where are you located? Are you close? or do you happen to know any groups around the area?

    • Hi. I don’t know if there are any homeschool groups or institutions in Negros, but I come from the island of Mindanao, and am connected with The Master’s Academy Homeschool in Manila. This is the link to their website – http://www.tmahomeschool.org. There are other homeschool institutions here in the Philippines, most of which are located in Manila. I think you’ll find them on Google. Just type “homeschool Philippines” and you’ll get a lot of websites of these schools. Hope I’ve helped you! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hello! I’m a mom of 2 kids, 9 and (almost) 11, and living in Bukidnon as well. I’m looking for a homeschool group, too, in the area of Manolo Fortich. Would you know of any? I homeschool independently, but am aware of TMA. We buy materials from there, and my husband and I actually used to attend CCF Manila. We met there and used to serve in the Youth and Singles’ ministries. That’s also where we got married! ;-0). Since TMA doesn’t have a satellite, support or outreach office in nearby CDO, and VCF/VCIS does, we’re thinking of maybe going to VCIS instead, in a year or two — the Lord willing. Any thoughts on this? Also, can you recommend a place/s where we could take our kids on a field trip within the vicinity of Manolo (aside from Dahilayan and Mangima)? I noticed your husband has an outdoor blog as well. Has he been to Sumalsag cave in Sumilao? If he has, would he recommend it to kids? Would love to hear from you. Be blessed! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Hi JD. It’s so nice to hear from you. It’s also good to know we are sister in Christ. ๐Ÿ™‚ We’ve heard about Sumalsag Cave but have never gone there. Now that you mention it, we’re seriously thinking of going hehe. I’m sorry I don’t know of any sites in Manolo that are conducive to field trips for kids. I heard, though, that there is a historical site there which is a Stone Marker of Yoshito’s Grave. One which I would like to visit with my son. I still need to do some research before we visit it so my son has a background on what it’s about.

      I had posted an article here about field trips, and they don’t necessarily mean going to tourist or historical sites. Going to the bank and letting your kids deposit or withdraw money on their own or going to a grocery store and making them help with adding up how much everything costs, or visiting a new barangay they’ve never been to are in themselves, field trips. Here is a link to that article: https://filhomeschooler.com/2012/10/12/fieldtrips/. Hope it helps! We have a page on Facebook called TMA Homeschoolers In Mindanao. Feel free to leave me a note there if you need more information. God bless!
