It seems a lot of my home school friends are needing encouragement. I know I need it a lot myself. Right now local public schools are getting out for Spring Breaks and kids are all over the place. It maybe hard to get our kids to sit still and do work so they can get some free time as well.
Before you get to overwhelmed stop! Remember all the reasons why you started homeschooling in the first place. We can go at our own pace. If your child needs to go outside and run all day till he falls over, let him. Maybe yell out some random Spring facts so they have something to think about. However when they come in all tired start talking. Talking to each other is one of the best ways to promote learning and a love for it. Ask your child what kind of new things they seen popping up outside. A new flower? How about we look that flower up and see what it is called? Oh you saw a snake go across the road, let's look him up too.
There is always a way to turn things into learning. Just be open to it and let your child lead you with their intrests. It will save lots of stress on everyone.
Or you may have a day like this...
