Getting teens together at the same time is hard. Different subjects studied, work schedules, social life, sleep schedules. Carving out that homeschool togetherness in the high school years is a challenge. Yet time is slipping away from me. Next year will be my oldest son’s last year homeschooling, then he’s off to college classes. Even if that’s a local community college, he’ll be out of the house. The cozy time learning together will be a thing of the past.
So I started a thing in April where I make up a fruit and cheese tray at 10 am and we do our high school English together. Each week at the grocery store I’ll select a new speciality cheese to try just for English hour. I’ve found food usually does the trick to draw teens around a common spot. Moths to a flame, you guys.
