Since we took Joey out of public school in March it’s been a learning process and a big transition away from what was a demanding routine for him at his school. He had completely checked out with all the constant testing, and prepping for testing.
I wrote an earlier blog about pulling Joey out of school and my thoughts on tests you can find here( testing & homeschooling). Joey has a mild form of ADHD and would just tune out when his class worked constantly on learning the test. He even got to the point of just bubbling in answers without even reading the questions.
This was so shocking for me, as his mom because he wasn’t misbehaving in class, he was well liked by his teacher and peers, he just couldn’t focus or see the point of all the tests. How could I blame him…?
One of the things Joey has really taken an interest in is his drawings. He will listen to music and draw for hours at a time or build huge lego fortresses.
I told him to pick out his favorite drawings and I would include them in a post to highlight his work. I hope you like them…
His inspiration was his small animated globe that sits on his desk in his room.
I’ve been pretty impressed with his interest in drawing, and especially his ability to focus on it! Thanks for reading our homeschooling update and checking out his art…
