Homeschooling is a big responsibility. And much of that responsibility falls on mom’s shoulders. By the end of the school day, we are often weary, beat down, and worn out if we don’t have a homeschooling plan that gives us a routine and structure we can live with day in and day out.
Perhaps we are trying to do too much or we are letting unrealistic expectations rule our lives or we are simply lost in the chaos of a homeschool day that doesn’t fit us or our children well.
Whatever the reason may be, if your homeschool day wears you out, these practical, easy-to-implement ideas will help you build a calm homeschooling atmosphere you and your children will thrive in!
Anchor your homeschool day.
In my free class 4 Steps to a Better Homeschool Day, I talk about Anchors and how they help you build a framework for your school day.
Anchors are simple goalposts that exist in your day and help to anchor the rest of your routine.
For instance, when I call everyone to our homeschool, we ALWAYS do Bible Time first. Likewise, we ALWAYS end Morning Time with a chapter from our current read aloud book. These 2 “anchors” signal the beginning and end to our Morning Time. The latter also serves to signal the beginning to the kids’ independent school subjects – the ones they do on their own via computer, textbook, or living book.
