It has almost been a month since the holidays have ended yet I am still on Christmas vacation. I actually had not planned on taking a prolonged time off from home school but that’s just the way it has been. I am really feeling that we should get back to our routine.
Personally I prefer to take small steps and tackle the most vital first.
- Have a written plan of action for the day. I can’t say enough about writing things down. This is key for me.
- Get the kids up at a reasonable time, not noon. This has also been hard for me because I have been enjoying the extra quiet time.
- Make sure everyone eats breakfast. That might sound odd except when you have a family that likes to make a meal just as soon as you start anything.
- Take your time with subjects. Instead of jumping into a full day of subjects we linger and take our time. (I prefer this way of homeschooling)
For my family it takes a good week to get back into the rhythm of our days. What are some ways you get back to your routine?
