In case you missed it, we’ve been in the middle of a pandemic for the last 7 months. Everything about our lives has been turned upside down. And that includes how kids go to school. But the good news is that if you’re one of the many families who has decided to homeschool instead of send your kid back to school or have always homeschooled and are now looking to take the kids on the road, here are some tips for homeschooling from your RV.
Create a Schedule
Depending on your state’s laws, most kids only need 3 hours of daily instruction while homeschooled to cover what they’d normally have covered in an 8 hour school day. Because of that, creating a schedule is super important. When you create a schedule you know what you’re going to be doing and when so that you can then plan your day.
Incorporate Field Trips
The beauty of living life on the road is that there are constantly new places to see and new things to learn. We suggest incorporating components of your destination’s history into your learning plans so that you can immerse the kids in hand on learning experiences.
Getting organized is an important part of making sure that you are ready to learn. It’s easy to spend an entire morning just getting things together, so making a plan to be organized and sticking to it is an absolute must. Give each kid their own box that includes supplies. Have designated areas for books and make sure the kids all have a place to sit and do their work.
Find Homeschool Groups
If you plan to stay in an area for a few weeks at a time, then it would be worthwhile to connect with local homeschool groups. This gives the kids the chance to connect with others and gives you the chance to meet other parents.
