Homeschool theme songs are awesome ways to add excitement and fun to your first day.
Back to homeschool time doesn’t need to be stressful if you find ways to relax and enjoy those precious moments with your kids. Learn why working with your kids to pick a homeschool theme song can be a fantastic catalyst for a successful homeschool year!
Boost Your Homeschool Year with a Special Song
I love to think about and plan fun ways to celebrate our first day of homeschool.
As I reflect upon our previous homeschool year and eagerly await our upcoming academic year, I find myself jotting down ideas on what I can do to help our homeschool get off to a great start.
My boys and I love to listen to music and dance. We love to take brain breaks and have frequent dance parties. The addition of music into our back-to-homeschool celebration is just a given!
Why Choose Homeschool Theme Songs?
Working together to choose a homeschool theme song can be super fun. You can use this time for discussion with your kids about music plus goals and hopes for your homeschool year. It is a fantastic opportunity to explore all types of music with your kids.
Homeschool theme songs can help solidify your homeschool vision and goals. Music brings a fun factor to unifying these goals and dreams. Also, when you hear your homeschool theme song(s), your family have a shared symbol of your hard work.
Your homeschool theme songs can be used to announce your homeschool day. Crank up the tunes when it is time to get started with your homeschool learning! Watch your kids come running (and dancing!) as they gather around at the familiar beats.
How To Pick Homeschool Theme Songs?
There are several ways that you can approach selecting your homeschool theme song(s). A few things to consider:
- Energy Level: Do you and your kids need to get energized in the morning? Or do you need more of a calming song? Maybe both?
- Age of Kids: If you have a large family like mine with a range of ages, you will want to steer towards age-appropriate songs.
- Consistency: Does your homeschool family thrive on consistency? Pick one homeschool theme song and stick with it. If your homeschool likes to change things up, go for it as desired.
Homeschool Theme Songs Voting Process
You can stick with one homeschool theme song for the year. Or, if your family prefers to switch things up, you can change every month, week, or day! No matter what you choose, writing down the title of the song for all to see and be aware of is helpful.
The boys and I decided that we will plan on rotating our homeschool theme songs each week. After lengthy discussions, we decided that this option would allow us to better pick what we would need each week according to our schedules. Also, we just love too many songs!
