I have a post today at The Homeschool Classroom entitled, Preparing Your Homeschooler For College. You can click here to read this post.
Since writing this post, I have thought of one more item that I would like to mention.
Using an alarm clock.
In our home I either wake up my children when I want them to be up, or more commonly, I just let them sleep until they wake up naturally. This is not a problem for my early risers, Clay and Julie. Nor does it seem to be much of a problem for Sam who is usually up at a reasonable time as well. But my other girls, Leah and Olivia, have always been night owls and later than normal sleepers. I just work with it. Our home school schedule has Clay doing algebra with me at 8:00, but does not have Leah or Sam beginning school until 9:00 (our morning Bible time).
However, I do see the need for my high school aged children to begin using an alarm clock and being held accountable for being up and ready to begin school at a certain time. Like I said, this is not an issue for my current high schoolers, but I predict that my younger two will be learning to set their alarm clocks in a few years.
Just one more way to prepare them to get to class on time when they are in college.
Of course, I could just call or text them every morning to make sure they are up! (Like I am doing with my current college student!) :)
