Written by Kara S. Anderson

This week, we officially enter a time of year that many people refer to as “the holidays.”

Guide to Gameschooling: Learning Through Play | The Homeschool Sisters Podcast

Written by Caitlin Fitzpatrick Curley of My Little Poppies

In our most recent episode, Gameschooling: Learning Through PlayKara and I talked about how to add more games to your homeschool day for both learning and fun. We shared our family’s favorite games and discussed challenges to gaming, such as cruddy instructions, sore losers, and cost.

Since the episode aired, we’ve received a number of questions about the specifics of gameschooling, and also about how to get started if you have never had a family game night before but want to start the tradition. Continue reading
