How Long Does Homeschool Take?

I love to remind moms that school at home does not take as long as school at school. If you can set aside 3 hour block of time in your day, you can do this. Young children have short attention spans and until about 3rd grade, they really shouldn't be working on any one lesson longer than 30 minutes. (20 is actually better!) Aim for 20 good minutes of math, 20 good minutes of reading together or working on handwriting, and then move along. If you string together three 20 minute blocks of teaching time in a day in the early years, that is enough for the day - you’re done!

More reminders for bringing peace to your homeschool day are over on the Birds on a Wire blog today!
