I spend a lot of time talking about what homeschooling is like for our family. I love sharing our journey and encouraging other homeschool families in theirs, but today isn’t about me.

Today we get to see what a typical homeschool morning looks like through the eyes of my five year-old daughter and my eleven year-old son.

A Homeschool Morning Through Their Eyes

Our goal is to be done by noon on a typical homeschool day, so I gave my kids an old phone to help me chronicle their morning. Before we get to their photos, take a look at the video version of this post.

In this video, I interview both of my kids about a homeschool morning and some of their favorite (and not-so favorite) things about homeschooling.


Now that you’ve heard the interview, here’s more on homeschooling through their eyes. These are the photos they felt best described their morning:

My 11 Year-old’s Perspective

On this particular day, my 7th grader was working on several subjects independently in his room:

You can learn more about any of these homeschool resources in our 7th Grade Curriculum Choices.

It looks as if he had a significant interruption while working through the last few pages of the Schubert unit in music appreciation. 🙂

When he finished his independent work, he and his sister watched a documentary about water quality. This was to help them understand more about water quality and the results of our recent water testing.

That’s it for my oldest kiddo’s morning in photos. Now, on to my little one.

Scenes from a Homeschool Morning:
My 5 Year-old’s Perspective

If you’ve seen our homeschool plans for first grade, you may recognize some of the books in this picture from my five year-old. This scene contains Life of Fred Cats, her math book, our current read aloud, and a few of her Ambleside Online selections for the day:

Although we read several poems each day, her favorite is “Wynken, Blynken, and Nod” by Eugene Field. We usually read it along with our other poetry selections for the day, so it doesn’t surprise me at all that she would include it in her photos from the morning. 🙂

It also doesn’t surprise me that she would include a picture from our Life of Fred lesson for the day. This girl loves those math lessons and has learned so much more than math through them.

That wraps up my little one’s homeschool morning. I hope you’ve enjoyed a peek at our homeschool through the eyes of my kiddos!
