MODULE 1 – Quick Overview (Section 3 – Socialization)
Providing Opportunities for Kids to Safely Socialize
This is what Howard County Homeschooling is known for. Social events include themed holiday parties, field trips, and community social events.
GROUP FIELD TRIPS – We sometimes charter buses for long distance destinations to Annapolis, Baltimore and the District of Columbia. We visit historic locations, museums and local college campuses. A list of field trips and social events can be found on our Meetup social calendar.
IN-PERSON CLASSES – We’ve made the necessary changes to keep our students and teachers safe. Weather permitting, most classes are held outdoors and are kept small with a maximum of 8-12 students. Masks are required in the building and outside when social distancing cannot be maintained. This gives students a chance to meet on a weekly basis in a safe environment to learn and build rapport with classmates. Students meet for real-world and hands-on application of lessons and coursework. We schedule various field trips to bring studies to life – Charlotte Mason style.
