So many mamas are looking to do homeschooling without worksheets, because let’s face it… The world just has too many worksheets.

I’ve been there, many times. So I know you’ve been there too! The kids do amazing with homeschool one day and the next day they are just. plain. over. it. 

It can be frustrating. Especially with littles who don’t really understand the concept of “school” anyway. 

Sidenote: I often wonder why the “legal” school age is 7, yet Kindergarten starts at 5… Just me?

Kids love to learn, obviously, but sitting in a chair holding their pencil correctly for five hours a day is boring and not feeding their love for learning the way they were created to learn.

After struggling with my own kindergartner, I finally realized that I don’t NEED paper “proof” that he’s learning. We can learn all we need to, without worksheets, and just for the fun of it! 

So, I set out to create this list (by subject!) of things we can do as a family of homeschoolers instead of endless worksheets. Because… even my middle schooler needs a break from the books every once in a while! 

Implement two of these homeschool activities a week and have an entire year’s worth of non-worksheet learning just from this resource! 

Now, this list contains activities you can do that instill a love for learning within your kids, but they are not necessarily hands-off for you.

Some of the homeschool activities listed can be done independently, but most will need your help, supervision, or encouragement! But I promise all of the activities will be fun and exciting for your kiddo!

You’ll see things in the language arts section like:

  • Read a book while having a picnic
  • Make up your own news story
  • Play Apples to Apples
  • Start a family blog or journal

In the science section, you’ll see things like:

  • Grow a germ farm
  • Make lemon volcanoes (which was SO much fun!)
  • Watch Bill Nye the Science Guy
  • Make leaf rubbings

Other sections include math, history, art, health, and physical education! There are also links to a few things we love and more resources of fun for your littles!

Seriously… be prepared. These homeschool activities are some that will be begged for over and over again 🙂

    Hi, So, I am trying to homeschool 1st grade but how do you know if your kid is where they are suppose to be according to benchmarks? How in detail is 1st grade writing? How in detail is 1st grade Science or Geography? HELP… any help would be great!

      Hey Hila! I am so sorry I didn’t see this comment sooner! It was in another folder. I will email you as well, but just in case anyone else is reading and have the same questions – I wanted to respond here on the blog too! I would ask yourself why you are homeschooling and what the end goal is for your family. If the end goal is to develop a love for learning within your children and prepare them for college later on, then throw out the benchmarks and stop schooling with the “grade level” mindset. Homeschool is not school at home – There’s so much freedom in dropping the grades and simply teaching your child what they need to know. A college or future career supervisor isn’t going to ask what age they learned a particular thing, they just want to know that they learned it at some point. Now, if you are homeschooling with the idea that your children will be back in public school eventually, then keeping up with benchmarks within your school district is important – especially if you want them to enter the “Grade” that their age is “supposed” to be in. If this is the case, I would reach out to your school district to get a scope + sequence for first grade so that you can keep your homeschooler on the right path 🙂 If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to email me: info@shelayount.com
