So, I totally jumped the gun last week and forgot that this series was coming up and posted Choosing Your Curriculum last week.
One great thing about Homeschooling Year Round that was briefly mentioned in my last two posts is that you don’t have to be a SLAVE to your curriculum. There is more Flexibility and Less Stress when you have a year round schedule.
For my own sanity, I need somewhat of an outline, but I find that with a year round schedule I can allow for them to explore areas that interest them more, and fly through topics that don’t.
As previously mentioned, I can allowed for a bit more of an unschooling, relaxed approach, because I don’t feel tied down to the time line.
THIS is the type of stuff that can happen when you let go and aren’t a slave to your curriculum!
I’m not perfect at it, but I have learned to let go a lot more! It’s amazing what can happen, when you allow it too. Honestly, our best homeschool days have been the days I let go, and let learning happen more naturally!
