Let’s Homeschool High School December Blog Hop~Scheduling: Yea or Nay?

Happy December everyone! Jackie here from LetsHomeschoolHighschool.com. Are you still feeling stuffed from eating all the delicious Thanksgiving goodies? Aren’t you thankful holiday food has zero calories and no fat!

I’ve always wished Thanksgiving and Christmas were further apart. You just finish with one major holiday and the next one is knocking at the door. It can make it hard to school with so much happening. At least Thanksgiving is just one day of celebrating. Christmas is a whole different game. There are parties and special events scheduled all month long.

How do you handle scheduling your homeschool during the holiday season–Thanksgiving, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, and New Years? Everything is so close together. Parties, special events, and family gatherings abound, yet school is staring you in the face, or is it?

Do you build in time off for holidays in your calendar, or do continue to work despite the holidays? Do you include the holiday as a teaching tool and keep right on going? Many homeschooling families take the whole month of December off. Do you? Maybe you just cut back a little on your schedule during the month. Perhaps you and your teens are very laid back about schooling and do not have a regular schedule to even worry about.
I can’t wait to read all about how each of you handle scheduling and holidays. I bet I learn a few new tips for making the season even brighter and smoother!snowman20
