I’ve just got a couple of shares for you this week.
I know that sometimes it is difficult to keep homeschooling on track during this time of year. There is so much hustle, bustle, and activity that homeschooling seems to be somewhat of a burden. If you find yourself having your homeschool compete with the festivities maybe try some of the reading suggestions from this blog post. Included are great book lists for little kids, middle kids, and high school kids. Reading is a great way to keep the learning going without depending on your everyday homeschool curriculum!
For those of you looking for something for your high school students to do (that you can do with them!) consider checking out Ten Creative Ways to Celebrate the Holiday Season with Your Teen list. And don’t let the title fool you, some of those things would be fun to adapt and do with your younger children, too!
Finally, an interesting factoid. Tuesday, December 16, is the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. Consider introducing this event and its historic significance to your homeschool this week. There is a great review of The Revolutionary War Adventure by Susan Kilbride. This book is designed for 4th through 8th graders.
Between now and the end of the year I will try to post some other resources to help you keep the learning going without taking the fun out of the holidays that occur between now and New Year’s Eve. Can you believe the year is almost over!?
