The holidays are crazy, crazy with a capital C, to say the least. With so much going on around the house, preparing meals, arranging travel, and planning gift giving, homeschooling tends to get lost in the mix.
The convenience of Time4Learning’s online curriculum allows us to bring the learning on the go. Whether you have travel plans or not Time4Learning is accessible anywhere! Time4Learning also give us the ability to take a break from the computer and allows me to add some creativity into my children’s education for a change while never putting learning on hold! For example, the holidays are a great excuse to bake some warm, delicious treats. Coincidently, baking is much more than having your treats taste good (which is very important) but also allows my kids to learn about:
Math: Need to double a recipe? Have your child double all the measurements within the recipe.
Science: Cause and effect? How in the world, do all these soupy ingredients mixed together, make a solid, crisp delicious cookie? (I’m personally still trying to figure this one out)
Literacy and communication: How not following directions or missing a step can do a total 360 to your baked goods!
There are so many different ways for my children to learn outside of the standard textbooks and curricula all thanks to Time4Learning’s flexible curriculum. With Time4learning, there are no strict schedules, which makes homeschooling possible during the holidays. Ahh!, the beauty of homeschooling, learning anywhere at anytime! When incorporating education into an everyday lifestyle, my children tend to forget they’re actually learning!
Turning your holiday planning into a learning experience will not only have your children acquire new skills but will also give your family the chance to spend the holidays making memories with the ones you love the most!
