One of the biggest benefits to homeschooling is flexibility. It’s been raining for a week and today it is finally sunny? Let’s do school at the park! Too many reading worksheets? Try narration for reading comprehension. Want to attend a concert on a Wednesday night? No problem, switch Thursday’s school for Saturday…or double up assignments on Wednesday and Friday. I LOVE this part of homeschooling. This week has seen several instances of flexibility in homeschooling. Here are a few:
Concrete work on a Friday morning? Buddy got to go along with his dad and start learning an important lifeskill.
Instead of filling out another worksheet, my kids acted out The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe’s first couple of chapters. Not only did I know what Boo remembered from her reading…I also was very entertained.
And Music class was never this much fun when I was in school……
