Homeschool Mid-Year + Homeschool Spring Break

Spring has Sprung!

Remember that you can begin homeschooling at any time during the year. You can begin homeschooling during the middle of the year, during the middle of a week, or even during the middle of a school day!

Some states might require a "Notice of Intent to Homeschool" within 30 days of withdrawing your child from school, or within a similar time-frame. To check on your state's requirements, contact your State Homeschool Association. They'll have all the information you need on homeschooling in your state.

Spring break can be a good time to begin homeschooling, too. It allows children time to relax and decompress, as you make plans to pursue fun, educational activities for the weeks ahead. Summertime is another good time to ease into homeschooling your child.

Remember that homeschooling is not "school at home." Rather, it's a natural part of living and learning each day, and there's no limit to the fun, learning activities that are available to you and your family!

For learning ideas, crafts, and activities this Spring, see our "Today's Lesson" or our "Unit Studies" page on our homeschool website at www.EverythingHomeschooling.com.

Happy homeschooling!

Make a Globe, Learn about Olympics and Learn about Your World

Become more familiar with your world by making a globe and locating Sochi, the setting for the Winter Olympics, on your globe. Make a balloon globe and label Sochi on the globe. Then label your state and town on the balloon globe, and determine the distance between your hometown and Sochi.

To make a balloon globe -- or a papier mache globe -- follow the easy instructions on our "Today's Lesson" at www.EverythingHomeschooling.com.

For daily lessons all year, see the "Weekly Lessons" on our site at www.EverythingHomeschooling.com.

For hands-on activities, see the "Hands-On Experiments" on our site at www.EverythingHomeschooling.com.

Remember: "I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand." - Confucius

Happy homeschooling!

Create a Snow Globe and Learn History

Make your own snow globe and learn the history of snow globes.

You’ll also learn about early 19th century France, the Paris Expo of 1878, the Eiffel Tower, the French Revolution, the first snow globes in America, and more.

When children are involved in hands-on projects, they learn so much more and retain what they learn for much longer, too.

See our “Today’s Lesson” at www.EverythingHomeschooling.com and have fun learning this winter!

Happy homeschooling and enjoy the Christmas season!
