The following is a post by Kari Patterson of Sacred Mundane.
One simple schedule-switch worked wonders for us.
One of the main reasons we homeschool is to have the freedom and flexibility to “go with” what life brings and what needs and situations present themselves, so we’re far from rigid. But though it’s fluid, we definitely have our daily routine, and I love it.
Except when I don’t love it because I hate it.
I mean this: For me there was this particular time of day I hated. Almost always. The time when we transitioned from our morning routine (chores, breakfast, etc. ) into formal learning, namely MATH. It seemed that every book I read said, “Do math first thing in the morning, when children’s minds are fresh.”
Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, right?
