Homeschool Co-ops range from non-existent, to secretive, to big everyday events.
Homeschool Co-ops can be where a few moms get together with kids and do a book club, or science class once a month or so.
They may even offer
- speakers occasionally
- possibly even a show and tell type day
- a moms night out
- weekly or daily classes
- theme/ holiday parties
Other times co-ops are self pay, where everyone pays their own way or contributes their own talents, etc.
Some co-ops are even a mix of both of these types.
Co-ops for me have never came looking for me, I have always had to go “hunting” for them. A good place to look is for a Yahoo Group or HSLDA website.
Co-ops are often volunteer ran. So be sure you volunteer your share. I have seen many co-ops fall apart because the same moms did everything. They get burned out and begin to feel unappreciated.
This year I will be teaching my very first co-op class using The Art of Argument. I am nervous and excited!
