There are so many reasons to be thankful for homeschooling, yet after some hard homeschool days it’s difficult to remember them! It’s important that we never forget the blessings that homeschooling brings to our lives!
You can teach your children how they learn best.
Whether your kids like textbooks, hands-on learning, unit studies or literature; you can use whatever homeschooling method that works best for your children in your homeschool!
You can homeschool at your own pace.
As long as you are moving forward you are never behind. You do not have to feel pressured to keep up with anyone else, much less everyone.
You can set your own homeschool hours.
If you’re not a morning person and your kids love to sleep in, afternoon homeschooling may be the answer for your family!
You can take days off when you need to.
Everyone needs a break sometimes and homeschooling allows you the opportunity to take the breaks when you need them without having to worry about playing catch up.
You can snuggle your little blessings while teaching.
You can never get enough snuggles, gather your little blessings and snuggle on the couch while learning about the history of the world, astronomy or go on an adventure through literature!
You can homeschool year round.
There are 365 days in the year, you can choose which ones to use in your homeschool! Summertime learning can be lots of fun and vacation destinations can be less expensive in the wintertime!
You choose what to teach and decide when to teach it.
Ask your kids what they want to learn about and start there, you don’t have to teach in any particular order as a homeschooler.
You can go on field trips on quiet, less crowded days.
Taking trips to the zoo or museum is much more enjoyable when the school isn’t visiting. Planning your trips during the quiet season makes learning and exploring more fun!
You don’t have to use textbooks to teach.
Not all kids love textbooks and they aren’t the only resource for homeschooling anymore. Lapbooks, living books, unit studies and more are great options for your homeschool!
You can drink coffee while teaching your children.
This is a must in my home. I always have coffee in hand while teaching my kids, it’s a staple in my homeschool.
