Over at Real Learning is a post with a really exciting book I am considering picking up now.
I enjoyed this question: “Do you know what happens when you’re trying very hard to tie your studies into Christmas preparation without (1)completely abandoning what you’ve previously been studying for the season or (2) barreling ahead with the same old thing and hoping that your children don’t notice the rest of the world preparing for Christmas?”
It can in fact be a dilemma. Some families I know homeschool very lightly through the holidays or not at all. Others plow on through the season and keep exactly to their normal studies. Last year we did a mix, switching our religious ed and Bible studies to an Advent theme and keeping our math, reading, history and other subjects mostly the same. This year will be a little different.
