Homeschool Holiday Ideas

Homeschooling is a family journey , you can always add more quality time to learn with your kids no matter what time of the year it is. Ensure that you aren’t just handing them textbooks and lesson plans, experience homeschooling with your kids more this year! Here we have provided links to holiday trivia, themes, educational projects just for kids and so much more… You will find information on the history of Valentine’s Day, arts and craft ideas for Christmas, helpful ideas on starting your own family traditions the children will not only remember but pass along to their own children. One homeschooling mom, after reviewing this course-of-study decided that her family would simply do a unit study on bears throughout the holiday season — they plan to do nothing more than hibernate. Whether you’re homeschooling through Christmas or taking a break, some last-minute homeschool Christmas ideas can save the day in a busy holiday season.

We’ve taken all that is mundane and exciting about the holidays and created a course-of-study that will not only satisfy national curriculum standards (so you can relax), but will also let you enjoy this magical time of year with your family. To help alleviate the stress of trying to do it all, and to give you a sense of academic accomplishment, I offer a “Holiday Curriculum.” Slightly tongue-in-cheek, it was developed with the help of other homeschooling parents who give themselves permission to abandon traditional course work at this time of year, for a holiday home study program. Some great ideas for winter homeschooling fun are; winter sports, board games , indoor P.E., movie vs. literature studies and arts and crafts.

dental theme activities and printables round up by welcome to from homeschool theme ideas,

So, no matter what state you are homeschooling in and not matter what style of teaching you have, creating a course of study helps you see all that you plan to do for the year in a quick snapshot. Ideas, inspiration, and activities for homeschooling preschool, kindergarten, and elementary kids in language arts, math, science, foreign language, physical education, and all the rest of the subjects. I plan our more challenging homeschool subjects around these two short bursts of concentrated tot activities. A nice tall shelf from IKEA might look aesthetically pleasing in your homeschool space, but it might not be the best place to store school activities for a tot who can barely reach the second shelf without having to climb on it. While there isn’t a one-size-fits-all, perfect plan when it comes to organizing the chaos of tot supplies, there are several options that will work for a variety of different homeschooling spaces.

By creating a MASTER list, you will be saving yourself much-needed brain cells on a harried homeschool day when you need a quick tot activity on demand. Social Studies – includes reading about different cultures, countries, customs, holidays, our community, etc (relating to the theme if possible) Sometimes we do hands on craft activities such as building model houses of straw and sticks, making a teepee, and visiting museums. Once you have a master list of ideas created, tuck it away with the rest of your school plans and refer to it often.

Take some time to make a list of the tot activities you already have at your disposal such as puzzles, board books, and blocks. Here are five tips to help you get started with establishing a meaningful Tot Time for the upcoming homeschool year. It’s fun trying to think of ideas to tie various subjects into our theme for our unit study.

Having all my subjects listed out helps me to see what I subjects are being covered in our unit study. — The best way I plan out the curriculum we will use in our homeschool year is by creating a Course of Study.” One of the questions I usually get asked when I discuss homeschooling is, How do you know that you aren’t missing something as you teach?” My answer, Good planning helps!”

I’m glad that I was able to take a realistic look at my time obligations, and my homeschool’s needs last year, as well as my own creative needs, and make the changes I needed to align them all into a life that once again feels productive and fulfilling. Last year, when I switched my old homeschool blog to My Sweet Homeschool”, I was ready to get more consistent and more serious about my blog and what I felt I had to offer the homeschool community I switched everything to WordPress, had a plan, was full of great ideas… I was ready… but my homeschool was not. These activities, printables, and ideas will help them countdown the days til Christmas in a fun and meaningful way.
