During the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday seasons, everyone is busy, and homeschool families are no exception. Since we're in charge of our own schedules, we do have the freedom to just carry on with the same school routines we have the rest of the year, or take an extended break and set schoolwork aside during the holidays. But most families are looking for a balance, a way to enjoy lots of special events and activities while making the schooldays count.
My own family does take plenty of time off this time of year, but unless we are traveling, I leave our basic school routine alone. It's not fool-proof by any means, but I plan ahead for a slowdown during the holidays, so that when we get back to the books in January, we're usually not far off the pace. The total number of days that we can count as school is lower in December, but we do try to make those days count!
Join me over at The Homeschool Post for some ideas on how to combine and balance homeschooling and family time during the holidays.
