Master’s Academy

This week was an improvement from the last couple of weeks. As each week passes it seems to be smoothing out even more. We continue to have moments of frustration, discipline, and also achievement. I have been evaluating my teaching style and also the length of time for each lesson. I have decided not to push my youngest to keep up with his brother. I also have shortened the lesson times to allow for more recovery time (for both of us).
As Mom’s we sometimes feel the need to “unwind” after our homeschooling day and leave our kids to play alone. At times I feel as though I do this to often and my children need play time with me. it’s important not to come across as a teacher ALL the time. My oldest seems to struggle with this and I am going to spend more quality time outside of the classroom with him. Play is just as important as instruction. Our children are different and perceive love in different ways and we need to know what that means for each of our children individually. They need to feel loved inside and outside the classroom.
Homeschooling is so rewarding but it’s also constantly changing. To drill, and push your kids so hard that everyday turns into a chore is really unfair to all parties involved. It’s not so much about the academics but shepherding  the hearts of our kids. Academic smarts will not get them any closer to heavens gate and neither will moral-ism. Our goal is to show them Christ and to be a great example in front of them.
My children are learning so much and soaking it all in. It’s so refreshing to see their fervor and excitement when they “get it.” Continue to pray for us and leave your best homeschooling tips in the comments.

With Great Love and Truth,

One thought on “Master’s Academy

  1. I remember homeschooling our children when they were young and it was a true joy. I had them do a little study in God’s Word every day. Our children are so precious and it is a blessing to love them. It is fun to love our grandchildren too. God bless us.
