6 Tips for Doing Foundations with Your Littles

I am part of a couple of Facebook groups for Classical Conversations families where we share many good ideas, but there are also frustrations vented by those beginning their homeschool journey. I have seen everything from parents saying they were giving it x-number of weeks and then putting their children in public school, to moms of 4-year-olds frustrated that their children won’t sit still for three hours to do memory work for Foundations. Take a deep breath, parents. It will not always go according to plan, but I can assure you, it is all worth it…if you keep pressing on!

Here is some advice from me, a mom who has been there. Please take it cum grano salis—with a grain of salt—and remember that every child and family is a little different. What worked for us can be tweaked to fit your family’s unique needs.

Things to do With Your Foundations Student

As my daughter approaches the transition from Foundations/Essentials to Challenge A, I often find myself reflecting on the time we spent together throughout her younger years. Like every parent, I smile remembering the things we did well, but also have a few things I know we could have done better. My goal is not to throw a pity party, but rather to inspire you to try the things in your homeschool that I didn’t do with her.
