What Homeschool Looks Like

Dear Reader,

I think this picture says a lot about what homeschool looks like around here:

There is a lot one can observe here.

First, school involves a lot of reading around here. We try to use living books as much as possible. Reading is followed by narrating to me.

Second, school doesn’t have to be done at a desk or in a particular room. We have a homeschool room. The kids almost never do their independent work there. This time she chose the kitchen floor.

Getting dressed is for school kids. Footy pajamas are much more comfortable.

Schoolwork is always more fun with a friend beside you. The dog likes being a part of reading time. He loves narrations. There is nothing that brings him running like one of the kids sitting down to tell me what they have read (well, a peanut butter kong comes close). I think he is learning a lot.

  1. Ha, too cute! I love that kids will plop down to read anywhere and anytime at home. My kids are jealous you have a dog though – our only indoor pets are hermit crabs and they just aren’t very snuggly. 😉 Thanks for linking up!
