The Work of Childhood

Our journey through homeschooling preschool and beyond...discovering the joys of learning along the way!

What do you think are the greatest advantages of homeschooling?

What advice would you give to a mom who is considering homeschooling her child?

What's one homeschooling challenge you've faced, and what solutions did you find?

What's a good way to motivate and support children who are struggling to learn a certain school subject?


My go-to solution is to mix things up!! Sometimes it's just a matter of presenting the information in a new and maybe even FUN way and that's all it takes for it to click for them! I have a different learning style than my son, and so I often have to think outside the box when it comes to teaching him! Turn a simple spelling test into a game, do copywork or handwriting on a dry erase board instead of paper...simple LITTLE things can make a HUGE difference in their young minds!
