Christmas homeschooling: I remember the homeschooling years when I’ve been so stressed out by the Christmas season that we put away all school work for the entire month of December…and into January. Christmas homeschooling can be a tricky thing because there’s SO much fun happening in December that you don’t want to miss a thing.
But Christmas break can almost be like a mini summer break where everyone takes weeks to get back into school mode and they all forget what their 8-facts are. I’ve decided there can be a happy medium. There is a way you can happily balance Christmas and homeschooling. You don’t have to throw out the fun of the season just to stick to the more strict homeschool regiment. And you don’t need to throw out the school books in exchange for the Nutcracker and baking your great-grandma’s famous sugar cookies.
You can have both a meaningful AND educational Christmas season.
This post will give you ideas for every school subject and how to make it meaningful AND full of holiday spirit.
Christmas Homeschooling: Making it Meaningful
Every year, my biggest goal of the advent season is just to make it meaningful.
I don’t want to buy a bunch of garbage to stock the shelves of Goodwill in June.
I don’t want to drag my kids around to a bunch of activities just because it’s “the best” for some one else’s family.
And I certainly don’t want to feel like I’ve been hit by a train on January 1st because I could’t say NO to what wasn’t meaningful to our family….
