The same old thing day in and day out can really get boring. Do you ever feel like you're stuck in a rut with your homeschool schedule? Well, don't feel obligated... just out of that rut and try something different.
A literature based approach to learning, can be your answer. Sometimes when we get stuck and just feel like our schedule has become our taskmaster - we'll just break it! Take a time off - and switch to literature based learning. You have tons of options, but a couple more popular are doing a literature unit using a theme... or just reading a series of related books on a topic. If you were studying american history - and wanted a break - switch to reading a series of American History biographies.
This type of learning will usually get your students refreshed and back to peak performance... Don't let the doldrums rob you of your love of learning!
