One of the things I liked about being home schooled was the flexibility. For example, we could take it easy in the mornings, without having to rush to school. We could also start our school day whenever we wanted to. Another good thing is that if we were working on something, and the timer went off but we wanted to keep working on the activity, then we could just keep working.
I also feel like I got to know my family a bit more, because we were always spending time together, being home schooled by my mom, with Alex. I liked this.
Another thing I liked was actually learning something new, because at school in Canada, I felt like I got taught the same stuff every year. Also, once I learned something and understood it, I had to keep learning it because other kids in my class still didn't understand. But this year it's different because there are only two of us, and Alex and I are pretty much around the same level, so when we're done with something, we can actually move on to the next topic. We don't feel like we're learning the same things over and over again.
Some things I didn't like about being home schooled were that I didn't know what was going on at my school back in Canada. I felt like I was missing out on all the news! I also missed my friends from school a lot. Skyping with some of my friends and reading their blog comments helped a little bit, but it's not the same.
Overall, home schooling in Argentina this year was fun, and I liked it a lot. But there were also some disadvantages. It's hard to decide if those disadvantages outweigh the benefits.
P.S. I had lots of ideas about this topic, but I'm a bit of a lazy writer -- Mom helped me organize my thinking and get it all down on paper!
