Creative Use of the Holidays in Homeschooling

By: Zan Tyler


One of the great beauties of homeschooling is the ability it gives us to turn all of life into a learning experience for our children. Holidays abound with opportunities to expose our children to unique learning situations and environments. They also provide effective tools for teaching powerful Spiritual lessons. We will discuss creative ways to celebrate New Year?s Day, Presidents? Day, Valentine?s Day, Martin Luther King Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Mother?s Day, Father?s Day, Flag Day, Fourth of July , Election Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas – as well as birthdays, anniversaries, snow days, and vacations. As an added bonus, we will discuss how you can count almost all of these holiday celebrations as school days.
