I take a very relaxed approach to how we homeschool. I really don’t want to rush anything and squash any natural desire to learn. We have been focusing more on learning through playing rather than using structured activities. Lately though Squeaks has been asking for some activities more than others, so I thought I’d share what homeschool looks like for us these days. Most weeks we only do school maybe two days. Other weeks we do maybe half an hour a day. I leave it up to her and try not to push her to do more than she can focus on. If she starts getting impatient, I know it’s time to stop for the day. It is only preschool after all and she’s only three so there’s no need to push it. I also try to structure most “lessons” around an interest she has. For example, one week I asked her what she wanted to learn about and she said octopuses so we did a lot of ocean themed activities that week. She’s more likely to retain information if she’s interested in the subject.
Aside from the themed activities we do, there are three learning tools that have been consistent hits that I’d like to share. I’ll share each one in it’s own post because each one is so fun and full of great activities.
