I’ve been homeschooling preschool since my son showed interest in learning. Heck! I started reading to him when he was in my belly. But, for some reason, the thought of homeschooling kindergarten (coming up for my son and me in the fall) is a little scary.
To be candid, it’s because I’m putting the pressure of a traditional school schedule on myself.
I end up with the question like, “How am I suppose to fit that in our everyday life?” Especially with two other little ones and a dog. That’s going to be so difficult.
But, it doesn’t have to be that way. I can embrace a lifestyle of learning. Where my family can use everyday experiences as learning opportunities. We can learn during the day, at night, on weekends and even holidays!
We can learn math while baking or grocery shopping at farmer’s market. We can learn science while outside or on a trip to the beach. Learning can be plugged into our already busy lives giving my kiddos natural opportunities to grow.
Of course we will use curriculums. Of course we will be meeting our state’s requirements. But, I can release the fear of fitting a classroom setting into our lifestyle.
And that’s the beauty of homeschool.
