Hello! I'm entering for the OakMeadow Curriculum giveaway!  I am interested in seeing more info on homeschooling while traveling.  I plan to take my 5 & 3 year old on the road for a lot of their learning and would like some more creative ideas on this.  Thank you for the chance!

Last year we did a lot of travelling and homeschooling.  I basically just took our workbooks with us and did what I would have done at home.  Bonus PE class when staying a hotels with pools :)

We travel via a fifth wheel for work 5-12 weeks a year. We just take our books with us. For things like math and writing which have to be done at a table, we work in the morning before we leave for the day and in the early evening between play time and dinner. For things that can be done orally, we do those while we drive. I mainly worry about core subjects. We school year round to ensure that even if we aren't quite as productive while traveling we still get plenty done during the year.

I actually find it really nice travelling and homeschooling.  Usually, when we are at home, my free time between learning is spent cleaning.  At the hotel, it's spent reading :)
