Every Day is Different

Written By: Wislaine

Every day isn’t created the same when homeschooling. Some days you will find yourself overwhelmed from the days before. You may have created a schedule your always readjusting, adding and removing lessons based on your children needs. It doesn’t mean your not teaching. Your just going with the flow. You know what works best for your family.

In my house I have a scientist, mathematician, dancer, artist, chef, athlete, stunt man and more. They are my children. They love to learn. The way they learn is different and I can adjust and readjust based on their needs. They have no limit. My daughter doesn’t have to wait to be in the six grade to show interest in six grade work. If she is interested in a new subject or harder work I can accommodate her without asking for permission. I don’t unschool my children but some days my children makes special requests.

Children are sponges and this is why everyday isn’t made equal in my household. They do learn everyday. Bible study is mandatory everyday in my home. Some days we may add an extra 30- 60 minutes to a subject that intrigues them. My son has ADHD and his learning style is completely different from my daughters. He gets more frequent breaks to burn energy. He usually love reading at night time. Sometimes he will beg me to keep learning and I keep teaching. Some days he want computer work. Everyday is different and the they do learn all required and needed subjects.

Sometimes I may school them 6 times a week. On holidays I may have my children complete math, reading and watch educational videos or documentaries. For instance, on President Day they watched videos about the presidents and my daughter read a book about the presidents.
