At one of the conventions this past year, a woman took me aside and whispered to me, “I have a confession to make – we haven’t done any science in weeks. What am I supposed to do?” And today, I want to share my answer with you all because I know that this lady was not the only one out there who has been behind in their plans for science!
Hi, I’m Paige Hudson and you are listening to the Tips for Homeschool Science Show where we are breaking down the lofty concepts of science into building blocks you can use in your homeschool.
If you found these homeschool science tips to be helpful, would you please take a moment to rate it on iTunes or Google Play? This would help me tremendously in getting the word out so that more earbuds are filled with science-teaching encouragement.
Here are the four steps I take when I get behind in a subject.
Step 1 – Take stock of where you are at.
The very first step you need to do to get back on track is to take stock of where you are at.
Ask yourself these questions:
Step 2 – Figure out where you need to be by the end of the year.
The second step is to figure out where you need to be by the end of the year.
For this step, you need to write down the following:
Step 3 – Develop a plan.
In the third step, you are going to develop a plan that will move you from where you are to where you need to be.
Step 4 – Stick to that plan.
This fourth step is where the rubber meets the road – the point at which you decide to stick to the plan you have created.

"The point of acknowledging where you are at is NOT to make you feel guilty about what you haven’t done. The point is to provide you with the information you need to change the story moving forward." (Pin this Tidbit)
