TIP TUESDAY: Teaching Moments

If you homeschool, like me, you probably have days when it seems it is all you can do to get your children to work on school!  Well, one trick I've learned with my kids is that they have moments in the day when they are most eager to learn and they pay attention and work best.  That is a great time to allow them to work when their minds are ready for learning.  

Some of my kids work best toward afternoon and do 2-3 lessons during that time.  Other children work best in the morning and are motivated to complete a week's worth of work in one day.  That's a great opportunity for you to capitalize on their peak learning times.  We aren't trying to be public school at home, so why try to fit learning into a typical public school time frame?!  

What are some of your schooling tips?
