Why I Love Homeschooling

School

I love homeschooling.

There are so many positive aspects about it! You don’t have to worry about what to wear, you don’t have to pack lunch, you get to work at your own speed, you have no homework, just to name a few! This post gives nine reasons why I love homeschooling.

One thing I want to mention before starting. I’d really like to post more than once a week, but right now, I am just too busy to balance school, homework, music, and everything else (#innergirlbossfailure πŸ˜›Β ). In the future, I may post more often, maybe twice a week. Right now, it’s just staying as-is.

Now, onto the post!

RUN BY YOUR OWN CLOCK

You can plan your own daily, weekly, and monthly schedule. You don’t have to run by a school schedule, meaning that you could do school all year round, 6 months a year, or even take a day off once a week. It’s totally flexible and you can work at your own pace!

WORK AT YOUR OWN SPEED

You can go at your own pace – no waiting for people to catch up or finish. I hear this complaint all the time from friends that go to school. They’re always complaining that they’re waiting for everyone else to finish while they’re sitting there doing nothing. When you home school, you don’t have to wait for people. You’re running your own schedule.

NO LOOKS, NO WORRIES

You don’t need to get ready every morning and pick your outfit, because you’re staying home! If you take online classes, you literally just have to put on a shirt and brush your hair… if you go on webcam, no one’s going to see your whole outfit (albeit you’re in your pajama pants! πŸ˜†)

MORE FREE TIME

You have more time for extracurricular activities – you’re not always doing homework. After all, ALL your work is homework!Β There’s more time to do the things you love.

MID-DAY OUTINGS

You can go out in the middle of the day! Mom needs help with the groceries? No problem. Β Just simply go, come back, and finish up what you need to do.

NO FUSS IF YOU SKIP

If you skip a day, it’s no big deal. Like I said before, you’re running on your own time and schedule. If you somehow miss a day, you can just start again the next day. No extra homework (unless you take online classes like me 😏 )

FOOD

When you home school, you don’t need to pack a lunch the night before or the morning of a school day. Want a snack? It’s right there! (That reminds me… throwback to this post!)

NO HOMEWORK

This is the best. Home schoolers have no homework! Which means that nigh times and other free times are, well, free! Instead of having to go to school and then coming home to more homework, you can do anything at night if you got all your school work done during the day. Yay! πŸ˜€

LEARNING… ALL THE TIME!

You learn to use every opportunity as a learning experience. Whether it be going to the grocery store, running errands with dad, or simply planting your garden – you can learn something new everywhere, anytime, anyplace.

  1. I really liked this post! I am homeschooled and also do online school. It is awesome that I don’t have to pack a lunch, worry about what I’m wearing or do a ton of homework!

  2. I loved this post. It totally describes us homeshoolers well! What I like is having the option to choose my classes… my mom allows me to pick and choose even for the basic subjects (as long as she is okay with the thing I choose).
    I enjoy the free time I have after doing “school” for a couple hours. More time to read and write and play video-games and sleep. Yep it’s nice being homeschooled.
    (Wish I had friends though… πŸ˜₯ )

  3. I’m not homeschooled, and I have tons of homework every night. Add that in with my super busy dance schedule, and I never have any time to relax during the school week! I love public school, but homework makes me want to be a homeschooler. πŸ˜‰ My mom actually works for an online school from our house, but I live in a really good school district so I don’t do school online. Great post, Rebecca!

  4. Can definitely relate to everything you listed. I’m myself a new homeschooler, currently homeschooling my son who is in 1st grade and a preschool son who is 3. My older son is learning online with Time4learning.com and absolutely loving it (it’s a great site and I recommend everyone to try it for a month). You can either use it as your full-time curriculum or as a partial supplement to your own curriculum.
