A Surefire Way to Cure Homeschool Boredom

"But that's boring..."  

"How much longer?"  

"This is dumb!" 

No matter how hard you try, it seems inevitable that you will eventually hear these oh so encouraging words at least once.  

I suspect you already know that homeschooling is not for the faint of heart.  

Yes, most of the time they are kind and considerate, on-task and diligent, but there's always the one subject (and -just your luck- it’s usually a different one for each child) that’s akin to that putrid stench that wafts through the kitchen when someone forgets to take out the trash.

So what do you do?

Do you offer rewards or do you threaten to take something away?  Do you adjust and hope to try again tomorrow or steel your resolve and dig-in for the long haul?  (Yes, we all want to "Inspire, not Require," but, dang it, how long until it kicks in?!) 

Why not try a different approach…

What if you could just tweak your presentation and make it so fun that your child will actually beg to do it over and over again?

The answer is actually very easy and lots of fun.

Why not try integrating the arts into your homeschool...

In other words, why not try using dance to teach phonics, or storytelling to teach division or creative drama to teach biology? Probably the most well-known implementation of this approach is the teaching of fractions while learning how to read musical notation, but this really doesn’t even scratch the surface of the almost infinite possibilities.

Just like a tasty bowl of fruit makes it easy for you to eat healthy foods, integrating artistic activities with core subjects makes it fun to learn practically anything!  I guess Mary Poppins was right when she said that “A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down!”
