Christmas can be a time of stress for homeschooling families. On top of their regular school activities, there is holiday cooking, shopping for gifts, visits from family, and not to mention the neighborhood kids are all out of school.
Instead of fighting the season, try a little Yule School and make Christmas the curriculum.
Instead of adding items to your to-do list this season, instead replace the history, science, art and other subject you normally do with holiday studies. Take the time to enjoy the season and each other as you learn each day.
