Rev up the Brain With Excercise!
It's so easy when you home school to skip the physical education. Often recess is taken in their rooms or in the kitchen munching. A physical education class is sometimes spent on mild activity or skipped altogether. However, these times of activity may be more important than learning their geography. Two to four breaks a day including such things as jump roping, shooting hoops, and running laps may be just what your child needs to fire up their learning experience. It gives them time to refocus and gets the blood pumping to their brains. You may be surprised what a difference an hour a day of activity could make in their grades and their health! Also, get them out in the sun when you can, this will just add to the benefits!
