Do you have any fun and interesting ways to get your students excited about the new school year?
As a family, we try to schedule a FUN field trip before we dive into our coursework. Also, our local home school support group hosts a ‘Back to School’ picnic mid-August. We enjoy a picnic-style dinner and games for the kids. This is a great way to reconnect with other home schoolers before you get knee-deep into your academics.
On a more academic note, we begin our first day of school with only 2 subjects. Then each day I add another subject. We will have a full course load by the end of the second week. This helps both the students and teacher acclimate into the school year less stressfully.
