Adapt, Customize, and Thrive

Every homeschooling experience is wonderfully unique. One of the best parts of homeschooling is being able to learn in a way that works best for your family. Because every student is different, you might find yourself approaching the same subject in varying ways, depending on your children’s interests, strengths, and challenges. Do you incorporate art into math work for your little artist or weave creative writing into science lessons for your budding writer? Do you take advantage of your family’s love of travel to bring alive lessons in history, geography, and civics? Do you tap into the local community’s culture and mentors to enhance lessons? Maybe you modify assignments when you are on the road, use museum visits to work on writing assignments, develop map skills in the real world, and use your own particular environment in creative ways. How do you shape your homeschooling lessons to create a vibrant, unique learning experience to help your children thrive?

For the next issue of Living Education, we want to hear about how you modify your curriculum to take advantage of the opportunities and flexibility homeschooling offers. We’re excited to see how your ideas can inspire other homeschoolers!
