Georgia Homeschooling Information & Updates
Most of us have been in the books again for a few weeks. For some, the homeschool year has started out great. Kids like what they are learning, and it has been smooth sailing. For others, it may be going rough. Kids hate the curriculum, mom hates the curriculum, and no one is learning anything. So, what do you do when the curriculum isn’t working?
When you first tell people you are homeschooling you are likely to get a ton of feedback about the things they are missing out on. However, what people tend to not talk about are the things a child gains from homeschooling.
As my oldest enters middle school I am realizing the importance of teaching her good study habits. So far this has consisted of telling her to “go study for your test”. That is the same thing I was told as a child. It didn’t work out to well for me…. AND based on her last history grade it’s not working out that great for her either.
How is your school year going? Are you on task? A little behind? Or ahead of schedule? If you are behind, or not sure where you are then you may be contemplating taking a short Holiday break, or not taking one at all.
As parents, we want to teach our children the importance of serving others. Giving back to our community is important, and we want our children to realize how valuable it is to volunteer. The two greatest things we can teach our children is to love and to serve. Both of these can be done by volunteering as a family.
