Bedtime Learning

Apologia is a super easy way to squeeze in our science. The lessons are planned out for me, the experiments and activities are simple and use items we have on hand and it only takes a few minutes per day.

Yet I’ve been struggling to get our 2 lessons done every week.

Until a few nights ago.

We hadn’t done our lesson that day but the book was out and ready to go.

It caught my eye as I headed to tuck the girls into bed.

So I grabbed it up and read it to them as their bedtime story.

Why didn’t I do this sooner?

They were quietly listening, while I read an entire chapter (2 lessons!) and it only took about 20 minutes.

The next day, we did the activity and review questions, just to make sure the were absorbing the information.

(They were! YAY!)

I’ve also tried reading them their science lessons while they clean their bedrooms and do their laundry.

They always seem to listen better when they are busy doing something with their hands, whether it be coloring or folding clothes.

One of the best things about homeschooling is being able to fit learning into your family’s schedule, whether it be early in the morning or right before bed.

Thankfully, we started Apologia in July, so we are almost done for the year.

Only 2 more weeks.
