For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Some Benefits of Homeschooling

I am still to have written a post on some benefits of homeschooling. Here is a top ten list by no means exhaustive:

1. You get to set your own schedule and pace.

2. You get to do school while having a snack, or in your pajamas.

3. You get to do impromptu projects.

4. You get to go places anytime of the day, which also translates to more field trips and discovery time whether through visits to the museums, library, bookstores or wherever.

5. You do not always have to take tests.


6. You get more time to explore your interests (no time to be spent on homework if you are diligent), or dive into a topic in more depth.

7. You learn to be diligent.

8. You learn to be independent.

9. You get to spend the necessary time learning christian character traits and values.

10. You get things explained over and over and in different ways until you get it: the blessing of one on one education.

Good list! I agree with all...if only I would be more diligent...pray for me on this.

I also like the fact you can plan around traffic times to go places!

Great list! There are so many benefits to homeschooling. I love spending the time with my girls... and learning with them!

Thanks for sharing (and for linking up to the SHINE Blog Hop - I hope you can come party with us tomorrow)!

Wishing you a lovely evening!

Great list! My favorite part of homeschooling is being able to travel in the off seasons! The costs are lower and the places are less crowded.
