I am late with today’s post! But I am getting it done! Today the word it Create!
In our homeschool we love to create, anything! We can be building, drawing, painting, using LEGOs or just pipe cleaners. Creating is something that the kids just need to do.
Sometimes I don’t know what to do with the kids when they want to create. I want them to have structure, but I was never the one to create much, other than writing, when I was growing up.
This is when I love to use my membership to SchoolhouseTeachers.com and take a look at their art courses! These courses are great to fit into our homeschool day and allow the children to create when and how they want. This takes the stress off of me and allows them to learn!
Everyday Easels is a great course that works for all kids! We love to learn about different pieces of work. Not only that, but there are different activities for the different ages in your homeschool. These are a great way to allow your child to create, without you needing to plan and figure out what to do.
When I want Moe Man to be able to create, I look at Studio Art for Teens. This is a great way for him to get things off his chest through drawing. This is a great art course for high school, and it equals a full credit if you are looking at high school credits!
Just because we homeschool, and I am not one to create in a way my kids want to, does not mean they are not able to create. I just have to find a great resource like SchoolhouseTeachers.com to help in the areas that I am lacking.
How do you allow your children to create in your homeschool day?
