For the Parents Worrying About Homeschooling...

I want to talk to you, the parents homeschooling – those of you printing worksheet after worksheet.

Getting a text from “Mrs Hoohar” asking where your submitted work is?

Children learn- NONE STOP, trust me! The second I said SHIT my one year old was bellowing it out for the neighbours to hear.

But importantly learning isn’t always sitting, it isn’t always sheets of letters and numbers ITS NOT DOING TIMES TABLES ALL DAY.

So if you’re feeling guilty, here’s something to take your guilt away.

Go for a walk, play a game of eye spy, talk about the seasons-have a race!

Google what your area looked like years ago! Show them pictures.

So far you’ve had a lesson in letters, geography, p.e & history!

Get them to count out the biscuits for their snack plate. Eat 2 yourself and ask how many are left. There’s maths!

Get them to do the washing up? Bake a cake? Measure the quantities. Home economics.

Read a book at bedtime, they’re still learning. Literacy!

But don’t feel like you have to do it all, put learning games on the tablet! Put a film on, fire questions after it- comprehension.

Let them play in the garden. Have they seen the snow? Get them to draw a picture of the snowman they made!

Get out the lego see what they can build!

Learning doesn’t have to mean PRESSURE – and as for Mrs Hoohar’s text, tell her you’ll do the detention.

The things they’ll learn now are invaluable, this is REAL life. And it really doesn’t matter if they don’t get changed out their pjs.

Even if you do one or two things, thats enough. Don’t worry.
Good luck parents.
