homeschool routines

I admit, sometimes it’s difficult to make and stick to homeschool routines in.   In this video I discuss the importance of having some structure even on days when we just don’t feel up to it.

It doesn’t mean we have to be a slave to our schedules- but just have a general idea of what our goals are, and go from there.

Here are a few tips I mentioned in the video:

Spend time alone in prayer

One of the first things that must be a part of my routine daily is spending time alone with God- before I face the family.  Spending time with God is what makes my days go right.

Get organized.

I know it goes without saying, but get things ready for the day in advance.  Organize their school books and supplies.  Have a place designated for your kids can study.

A place for everything and everything in its place.

I love this quote and use it quite often in our home.

Have a daily list for yourself.

My list looks something like this:

  • educating my kids
  • exercise
  • meal-planning for the week
  • relax and catch up on favorite t.v. shows
  • take a walk
  • read a few passages in my Amplified bible
  • catch up on a few library books/ return a few books
  • do my nails

Having my own list of ideas keeps me reminded that I still have a life outside of my kids- a life that makes me happy and joyous just to be me.

Have a list of ideas for your kids to do also

Sometimes kids just need a few ideas to get moving rather than complaining about being bored.

We keep a running list of ideas for my oldest daughter so that in case she falls into an “I’m bored” mentality I can simply point her in the direction of the ideas list, and suddenly there are so many things she can do.

I hope you find these ideas and tips useful.
Enjoy the video!

I’d love to hear your thoughts!
