My kids love building miniature houses. I think most children their age share this same interest. Colorful Lego castles, cardboard Victorian mansions, popsicle stick cabins–our living room floor has seen them all.
Homeschooling families have something in common with these structures my children like to build–both are diverse and unique.
If you’ve been homeschooling for a while or have just started looking into it you might be familiar with the following scenario: We start reading about the crafts, Latin studies, Shakespeare play, acre garden or cool science experiments that other families do and we rush out to do the same thing.
We want to build a homeschool environment that looks just like another family’s. But what we really need to build is our own creation.
Can I encourage you to do something before you start paying for phonics curriculum, pottery lessons and Lego robotics?
