Are you considering homeschooling your kids? Maybe you tried it during the pandemic, enjoyed it, and would like to consider doing it full-time this year. Maybe you have felt called to homeschool your kids since they were born. However you have come to this decision to homeschool, it can be overwhelming at first.
Whether you’re a seasoned homeschooler or this is new territory and you plan on homeschooling your kids for the first time, you may struggle to find a balance between work (learning) and leisure (play) for your students. Your plan may be to schedule your kids’ days with time slots focused on academics, followed by breaks during which your kids can engage in less-structured activities.
If you are choosing to homeschool your kids or continue with Distance Education during the pandemic, your kids may be tied to their desks more than they are used to this new school year. Your kids may become more stagnant unless you make sure they get the physical breaks they need to stay balanced and healthy throughout the day.
