We have been homeschooling for seven years now. It’s crazy to think that it has been that long. Over the years I have been a stay at home mom, worked outside of the home, and worked from home. My husband recently changed jobs and our whole schedule shifted. I still work from home and now he works erratic shifts based on what is needed. Sometimes that can be stressful but we are settling into a new routine. I want to share some tips for making homeschool work with your work schedule. It is completely possible to homeschool and work.
We recently started a series of unit studies focused on the History behind the popular show Hamilton. My 10 year old asked me to help her understand how things actually happened in History. This week we are focusing on the iconic song “My Shot” from the show. R can pretty much recite every lyric from this song and loves it!

Do you have a distracted learner? If you do, you know it for sure. It’s the child that notices everything but what they are supposed to be learning about. You know who I am talking about. It’s the kid that will sound out “C-A- oh look there’s a cat on this page.” I am not talking about a.d.d. or anything along those lines. Instead, I am talking about the busy child who is always looking anywhere but where you need them to. I have one and I would love to share 5 ways to engage a distracted learner.
