If you’ve homeschooled through even one winter, you probably know that the winter blahs are real. They can sneak up on your family before you know it or waltz right in through your front door announcing their intent to ruin homeschooling this winter.
What is it about winter that allows the blahs to make their way into your homeschool? Well, for starters, cold weather makes it hard to get outside to burn off energy and get large doses of “vitamin” sunshine. I bet you already know how important sunshine and exercise are, but do you know that the brain works better and has a more positive outlook when large muscles are activated?
Winter also tends to keep us cooped up so that day after day feels exactly the same. Regular lessons become tedious, daily chores seem monotonous, the walls feel like they’re closing in on us, and everyone gets on everyone else’s nerves as long, dark mornings turn into even longer afternoons.
Boredom sets in, bad attitudes begin, and, before you know it, the winter blahs have stolen all the energy and joy from homeschooling.
Luckily, there are plenty of easy things you can do to purposefully kick the winter blahs to the curb! After years of winter homeschooling, I have a bunch of ideas for you!
During this masterclass, we’ll discuss all kinds of creative ways you can choose to homeschool in winter so that everyone (including you) feels fresh and motivated to push through.
We’ll talk about ideas for:
- keeping bodies active (without going outside in freezing temperatures),
- making the most of long, dark days,
- special additions (and even some subtractions) that can make winter homeschooling more joyful,
- how to help your family focus on positivity, and
- how to build happy relationships during a difficult season of being cooped up together.
Believe it or not, winter homeschooling can be an incredible blessing! A few easy choices can help you build a strong defense against those nasty blahs. Your children (and your own soul) will thank you for the changes.
As a bonus, you will have access to a private Facebook group to submit your lingering questions afterwards!
