Do you ever hear that your local school is on break for yet another teacher workday and you get a little jealous? The kids have some time off and the teachers get a little time to regroup and recharge. You wonder just how many teacher work days they get.
Don’t forget that you can take days off from school work for teacher work days too! (Be sure to check your state’s laws first, but most have a provision for this.) Homeschool teacher workdays provide an opportunity to reflect on what is going well in your homeschool and what you want to change. They can also be a time to look toward next year.
I use teacher workdays at the end of the year to do big picture planning for the upcoming year. I also sprinkle teacher workdays throughout the year when I am ready to evaluate how our term went and what we might want to change for next term or if we are having a challenge and I need to find a solution.
Teacher workdays are an important aspect of your homeschool planning. Don’t neglect to include them in your schedule.
