We have started my Christmas break at different times during our 5 years of homeschooling. There were times we've had so much going on in December that we opted to take the entire month off from school!
Last year we took a break from Science and History and added a unit study on Christmas Symbols. We worked until just a few days before Christmas. I really liked this. It felt like the best of both worlds by doing school and Christmas at the same time.
This year my grand plan of doing a unit study in December was kinked by Mr. Steady. He surprised us by taking vacation Dec. 2nd through Dec. 9th. We just started back Monday. So, I can't make up my mind if we will school some next week or not. Dancing Grit is lobbying for the time off:) We'll see. I guess that's the wonderful thing about homeschooling. You make your own schedule!
I would love to know how others do it. When do you close the books? Or do you? I would truly appreciate a little comment telling me how you handle school during the holidays. Or, you can leave a link to a blog post if you want to blog about it. I would love to come by and read it!
Thanks so much!
Have a Blessed Day!
