In this portion of the Homeschool Alliance, members are challenged to include one non-traditional enrichment activity into their homeschools. Themes range from experiments with weather to backyard games to poetry to candle making! Each month's theme has three levels of challenge so you can do the "one star" level and feel pride of success if you don't have time for the more advanced challenges. At the end of the month, reward yourself with a badge!
There's a library with a slew of activities, too, if you want to try some of our previous themes.
All our subscriptions are monthly or yearly. Sign up any time, quit any time.

This Month's Challenge: Step by Step
Step by Step
Walking the Walk
This month we're going to do One Thing Step by Step! We want you and your kids to move your feet in new ways for new reasons and in new places. Our challenges will have your kids step out in fun and different ways, walk in nature, and take a hike.
Of course, we all know that moving more is good for our children's bodies, but remember that moving more is good for children's moods and cognitive development, too.
If you're a family with a child or parent who does not have typical mobility, we'd be glad to hear how you adapt this month's One Thing to make it work for you and your children. We're all about each family doing what works.
Try one or more of our Alliance Step by Step activities. We've pulled together links and ideas so focusing on those footsteps can be your One Thing this month!
Post Photos in the Alliance or on Instagram
If you take photos of you or your kids doing one of the Step by Step challenge activities, you can post pictures on the One Thing thread in Community Coaching, or post them on Instagram or Facebook. Use the hashtag #homeschoolalliance so we'll be sure to see them.
