“T” is for Teaching, Time Management, Trust and Technology

T

It is another day of the Blogging A to Z challenge.  Today’s letter is “T”.  “T”  brings to mind Teaching, Time Management, Trust, and Technology.

Because we are a homeschooling family, much of my time is spent teaching.  Sometimes it is teaching typical school subjects like math and language arts.  Other portions of my time is devoted to teaching life skills such as cooking, cleaning, yard work, grocery shopping and other such skills.

Next “T” brings to mind time management.  The better my children manage their time, the more free time they have.  Also the better we manage our time, the more extracurricular activities we can incorporate into our day.

Next, “T” brings to mind trust.  I need to trust my children to accomplish their schoolwork.  They need to be able to trust that I will do what is in their best interest.  Also I need to be able to trust that they will complete their work if I have to be away from the home from appointments or other reasons.

Finally, “T” brings to mind technology.  We utilize technology for so many things we do each day.  For example, we use the Internet to conduct searches and complete online courses through companies such as Alpha Omega’s Monarch curriculum and Videotext Interactive Online Algebra.  We use technology for doing daily Bible reading using Apps such as YouVersion.  We use Microsoft Office products to prepare papers, take notes and do presentations.

So that is what comes to mind when I hear the letter “T”.  What comes to your mind when you see the letter “T”?

  1. I was curious where the blogging from a to z challenge came from and I agree with a lot of your “T’s”. I think the trust one struck a cord. I would like to trust my kids to do their work and I would like to be able to do things in their best interest.

  2. Good “t” words. We are also a Christian homeschooling family. I’m also participating in the Blogging A to Z Challenge. My “T” post’s title was “Timely Truth”. Hope you’ll stop by and visit sometime :)!

  3. I am a dayhome provider and we do preschool each morning. We spend a few minutes everyday thinking of words that start with todays letter. I can think of Tons of Things That start with T but the most important one for me personally is Tickle. I find it difficult to bond with the children so I use tickling as a way for us to open up to each other. Of course if the child is comfortable. It also reminds me to laugh with the kids and not stress all day long!

  4. We are also a Christian homeschooling family, and right now our biggest “T” is time management as my teen son tries to earn money and school at the same time. Great post!
