HOME LEARNING OVERVIEW
You don’t have to ‘home school’, the phrase in the UK is ’home educate’. Take the word 'school' out of the equation and your stress levels will reduce a great deal.
You can educate watching a documentary, playing a game, reading a book, walking in the park, building with Lego, drawing, listening to podcasts, digging the garden, talking about world issues.
NOTHING about education has to be about workbooks, sitting down, stressing about goals or SATS or standards or hitting targets.
Stop thinking about home schooling. Start thinking about home educating. It’s much more fun and much less stress.

Using a story they know or one they are reading, create a story map.
Can they use the pictures and words (if used) to retell the story?
Can they teach the story to someone else?
Who can retell the story the best?
Can you measure things and compare the length, height and width of things?
Parents you don’t have to use standardised units,
you could using a measuring stick and count how many sticks something is.
Or compare one thing with another e,g ‘that is 3 straw lengths and that is 5 straw lengths’.

You could even create an advert for it!
