HOMESCHOOL IN MARCH: What to celebrate, how to celebrate it, and tips to make it memorable

Homeschool in March // Ever feel STUCK?! You have no idea what to teach about, the kids are antsy, and everyone just needs a break?! Read this.

Have you ever wondered what the heck to do for homeschool in March? Or every month for that matter!? We are an eclectic homeschool family, meaning, we tend to switch up the way we homeschool often.

I love to pull in elements from Montessori and Charlotte Mason. We all love to do unit studies too!

But we tend to lean heavy on the Wild + Free method of learning and that is when I feel most grounded in our homeschool.

The only problem with Wild + Free or “Unschooling” is the whole aspect of not planning anything and just teaching throughout your day as your child leads.

My personality is FAR from Type A… That’s my husband 😉 But when it comes to things I want to execute WELL, I love to put my outline of ideas and major milestones / goals on paper with a clear path to get there. That’s why planning our homeschool in March is going to be such a game-changer for our family!

Planning is not bad, especially when you’re homeschooling multiple ages. I want learning to be exciting and adventurous so that their hearts will long for it.

So, while we make time to allow for spontaneity throughout our day, I still like to have an overall idea and smidgeon of preparedness when it comes to what we need to / want to learn that day!

For other moms out there who are screaming YES and AMEN as you read this…

I’ll be creating monthly calendars like the one I am sharing today for homeschool in March so that you can have something in your back pocket too!

I can’t promise it will always be “National Day” based (like this one), remember… I said we were an eclectic family 😉 But I do promise to deliver it the week before a new month so that you can use it to plan your month accordingly!

This is NOT a curriculum, feel free to pick and choose topics and activities you’d like to do. Move the days around and create your homeschool. There’s a topic and idea for every single day, so that you can homeschool in March. Some families do school on the weekends and some don’t. So feel free to double up or skip 🙂 This is YOUR homeschool.

The exciting thing about this is it allows for a break in your regular schooling. So you can use this alongside whatever curriculum you ARE using! We actually school year-round, so a few breaks every now and then are so important for our (my) sanity.

Plus! Kids actually have a better attention span when they take a break during the day! And March is that time of year everyone gets antsy to get outside. It’s starting to get warm, the days are starting to get longer, and literally the smell of summer is not that far away!

Give your kids something to look forward to every week for homeschool in March with this calendar!

That photo is the entire calendar of topics we will be planning our weeks around for homeschool in March! Save it to your phone and plan your day using those events and national celebrations!

However, remember I said that I love a good plan?! I’ve also created a full activity plan to go along with it, including complete grocery, craft, and book lists for each week! Here’s the link to the full plan!

Now that you have everything you need for an incredible March full of fun and excitement for learning, here are a few ways to make it memorable and help your kids make it stick:

  1. Incorporate humor into your day
    If you can’t laugh about something funny that happened, something that sounds funny, or even looks funny, I mean… That sounds pretty dramatic. Even God created a Narwhal… Just saying 😉
  2. Relax a little
    You literally have all the time in the world. Bells do not ring for lunch and buses in homeschool. Don’t rush it! If your kids are into whatever you’re learning, then continue talking about it and finding rabbit holes to dive into. I promise it will be worth it!
  3. Use manipulatives to make it hands-on and visual
    Make 3-D versions of whatever you’re talking about with Play-Doh, build a tower with sticks, use a book as a ramp when you’re talking about trajectory. Visual learners aren’t the only ones who can learn this way. Often it helps to reinstate what another type of learner has retained while reading or researching already!

I would LOVE to hear how this helped your family dig deeper and develop a love for learning within your babies’ hearts.

Consider connecting with me on Instagram, it’s where I love to hang out!

And don’t forget to save the calendar to your phone or grab the full plan here 🙂 Good luck, have an incredible homeschool in March, and happy learning!
