Homeschool: Shifting Thinking

From schedules to curriculum, outdoor play to field trips. . . Homeschooling has taught us to think about things differently!

One of the very first things we did was to take time off from learning.

We just played. Explored more.

This helped us shift to thinking about how homeschool would look different than traditional school.

We started school later than everyone, and we ended up unintentionally taking a month break. . . at the beginning of the year. We continued school throughout most of the next year, as a year-round school year. At most, each kid spent 2-3 hrs of intentional learning each day.

Our first year was definitely anything but traditional.

How did homeschooling look different than you expected?
