What do you do on challenging homeschool days? Like when plans get interrupted or the kids (and mom!) have bad moods? Is there a way to switch things up, yet still keep learning? Here are ways to use mini lessons on those challenging homeschool days.
Welcome to the show notes for Episode #101 of the Homeschool with Moxie podcast!
As a former classroom teacher, now homeschooling mom of five, I love to equip and encourage other homeschooling families.
Stick around to learn how to homeschool with moxie. It’s about embracing your journey and finding your groove.

Mini Lesson Ideas for Challenging Homeschool Days
Disruptions will happen. Challenging homeschool days will come. Have a few ideas in reserve so that on those days when everything falls apart, you have a plan in place. These ideas are easy to implement, but will still be fun and educational for your kids! In fact, they might not even know that the day started out badly.
