Ten Reasons My Kids Like Being Homeschooled

I have a post today over at The Homeschool Classroom which lists 10 of the reasons my children like being homeschooled. When I asked my children this question, they were quick to give me a list!

Here is an excerpt:

More free time

My older children are well aware of traditionally schooled children’s school hours.  They realize that those seven to eight hours of school plus the hours spent in after school activities and then time spent doing homework adds up to a lot of time!
They appreciate the fact that they can complete their schoolwork in two to five hours, depending on the age of the child.  In their free time, my children enjoy playing outside in our woods, bike riding, roller blading, swimming, reading, games, dolls, books, and various other toys both inside and outside. Having more free time leads to reason number 2.

  1. I love your list!

  2. I enjoyed reading your family's list. I sent it to my sister who is considering homeschooling to encourage her. I think I might ask my girls to tell me their reasons and save the list as I reminder when we face challenges or discouragement when we begin our new school year. Thanks for sharing!
