Best Practices in Our 15 Years of Homeschooling (Part 1)

Previously posted on January 29, 2017

1. Keep their hands busy. Create, create and create again.

Using play dough, Gino sculpted the human heart.

2. Why Not?

Fly a Kite!

Play in the rain!

3. Don’t be afraid to try something different.

4. Aim for depth! Mastery over memory!

Make them see the bigger picture and the awesome connections.

5. Life skills matter.

Basic sewing!

6. Pay it forward. Always find ways to bless others.

Gino is organizing our books for donation according to levels.

7. Charity begins at home.

Encourage children to create things for the house. Recycled bottles as vases.

Teach skills to create gifts for loved ones. Flower arranging for Lola’s 82nd birthday.

Once in a while, take grandparents to lunch to cheer them up.
Lola’s favorite in Recipes is Kare-Kare.

8. Discuss relevant national/global issues.

9. Prioritize Character

We tried various materials but settled joyfully with this series from Apologia. We are now on our 3rd book, focusing on loving your neighbor.

10. Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you. Through the Bible and Bible-base material, teach the kids the value of prayer and reading of His word on a daily basis. As Christians, we all need to know God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit so we may live the fruitful lives we were called to have to reflect our Maker.

Hope these help your homeschool journey!

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Jeremiah 29:11
