Maybe I just bore easily… but I love change! I love change in my life, in my home, and definitely in my homeschool! Don’t you just feel great when you change around your living room furniture? I sure do – it’s like its all new… well, couldn’t the same apply to your homeschool? I think so!
When you feel like you’re getting into a rut with homeschooling, throw the kids a curve ball. Keeping them guessing keeps the interest up. Are you already getting bored with the new school schedule? We have been schooling for over a month now, and yes there are days when it already gets a bit boring. When you’re feeling that is the case, think of something “out of the box.” To really switch things up. Go outside and apply what you are learning in science, or watch a really cool video about what you are learning in history. Just a little deviation from the norm can make things feel fresh again!
Don’t feel stuck… that’s one of the faux pas of new homeschoolers. They often feel bound by traditional school thinking to follow the schedule day in and day out. Don’t! You are no longer bound by tradition… you have been set free… you are a homeschooler. Shake it up, twist it around, make homeschooling fit your needs. You’ll be amazed at how much better they learn and how much more they will retain when the education they receive meets their individual needs!
