Ep 33 - What do you do when you are behind in science in your homeschool?
5 days ago
At one of the conventions this past year, a woman took me aside and whispered to me, “I have a confession to make – we haven’t done any science in weeks. What am I supposed to do?” And today, I want to share my answer with you all because I know that this lady was not the only one out there who has been behind in their plans for science!
Hi, I’m Paige Hudson and you are listening to the Tips for Homeschool Science Show where we are breaking down the lofty concepts of science into building blocks you can use in your homeschool.
Here are the four steps I take when I get behind in a subject.
1. Step 1 – Take stock of where you are at.
The very first step you need to do to get back on track is to take stock of where you are at. Ask yourself these questions:
>How far behind are we?
>Why are we behind?
2. Step 2 – Figure out where you need to be by the end of the year.
The second step is to figure out where you need to be by the end of the year. For this step, you need to write down the following:
>What you need to cover for the year.
>Then, put a check next to or a line through the ones you have already covered.
3. Step 3 – Develop a plan.
In the third step, you are going to develop a plan that will move you from where you are to where you need to be.
>Sit down with your lists and a calendar.
>Mark off any holidays, vacations or prior commitments.
>Then count the number of days and the number of topics.
>Divide them up and pencil them into your calendar.
4. Step 4 – Stick to that plan.
This fourth step is where the rubber meets the road – the point at which you decide to stick to the plan you have created.
