In your home and homeschool
Have you been having some fun in your homeschool this year? Hands on learning and field trips can help you inject some fun into your learning.
Some of you are happy when you plan lessons and check off boxes. Educating your children is more than that. Educating your children should include giving them a love for learning. A love for learning does not just come from checking off boxes.
My young adult children still enjoy learning. By using hands on learning in our homeschool, my children have learned science and history and truly enjoy those subjects.
Use dramatization, projects, music, reading, and experiments to make it fun to learn concepts. Drawing and art mediums help your children process information on a deep level. By using the creative side of the brain for art, they are allowing the other side of their brain to absorb the math lesson they learned earlier in the day.
Choosing a field trip once a month to go along with your science or history topic will bring these subjects to life. It does not have to be a big field trip. We have enjoyed quiet field trips to the local science center to observe the animals in the aquarium.
This fall I have two field trips planned that will enhance our study of colonial history. What do you do to bring fun into your homeschool?
Today’s Zone Mission is to declutter under the kitchen sink and check supplies.
Your Home Blessing for today is to declutter paper and magazines.
My menu plan for Thursday is chicken and a salad.
Have a great day!
