I shared a post recently about some of the mistakes I made when I started homeschooling. I made the mistake of avoiding interest-led learning in favor of a specific curriculum course and a strict schedule. One of my amazing readers commented and asked me for more tips on encouraging interest-led learning. I decided it would be a fun time to write a post in case she isn’t the only one struggling with how to include interest-led learning. If you don’t homeschool, don’t look away just yet. Interest-led learning is great for all kids.
Can you believe we are already coming to the end of the official school year? While we homeschool year round we still have to do a homeschool evaluation every year.

I also wanted to share some of what you can expect.

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.
