Working Life Around Homeschool?
Working Life Around Homeschool or Homeschool Around Life?
When I first began homeschooling I thought we needed a textbook for every subject. I thought we either needed to be working life around homeschool or homeschool around life. I soon learned that doesn’t have to be the case and I’m learning more and more as the years go by and as my experience increases. Yes, while I feel we need curriculum as a spine, there are thing texts and tests don’t and can’t teach.
Here’s what our 4th-grade curriculum looked like last year. It will look different this year as I’m learning more, and there are more changes taking place in our family.
Lifeschooling is a new concept to me, even though I’ve already been doing it, unofficially. And, odds are, you have been too in some way. What is Lifeschooling?
Life happens! School should be able to fall in line with what’s happening around you, not you conforming to school. There are so many missed opportunities for learning when you overlook the real-life experiences your child has the opportunity to participate in daily. And, they miss opportunities to grow as people.
We need to be able to help our children find out who they are as well as what they want to do with their lives while fostering our relationships with them, and helping them build a strong relationship with Christ.
The free Lifeschooling Conference begins this morning, July 11, 2019 and runs through Saturday, July 13, 2019. If you miss it, there are still lots of great articles from their website to help you begin Lifeschooling, but definitely get on their email list so you don’t miss out on the next event.
This conference is free. No travel expenses, No food expenses. All you need is an internet connection and you’re set.
