Some Tips

Here are some homeschooling tips I found at http://www.homeschool-living.com/Homeschool-Ideas-Everyday.html.  Hopefully I’ll be able to find a good one for the boys during one of our “what do we do today” moments.

The following are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Keep a camera close by. Take lots of pictures. These are the moments of which memories are made.
  • Mix it up. Children love surprises. A variety of activities keeps their interest.
  • Be prepared. Select 7-10 . Then you’ll have choices. One may be appealing/appropriate for one time, another at another time. Include some that would engage your preschool homeschool children and others for your high schoolers. (I usually sat down every two weeks or so to pick them.)
  • Post the ideas in a convenient place.
  • Have a project spot. Look over a list. Gather or purchase any materials you need.
  • A special treat: Check out this site for fun monthly and holiday Word Search Puzzles.
  • Stay flexible.
  • Check out this interesting source for lapbooks! Creating lapbooks is a hands-on method ideal for learning, teaching and reinforcing material. It can also be used for making memory books about our children and their learning adventures.
