Sensory Needs in Our Homeschool

Last week, I wrote a guest post for the Beautiful Chaos blog, ran by a fellow homeschool mom who follows the Charlotte Mason method and Ambleside Online curriculum.  I recorded video of our homeschool day, and in them you can clearly see how his sensory needs take priority during the day.

Some days he can sit still longer than others.  Some days he prefers rocking or swinging instead of spinning.  When possible, I get him to jump on the trampoline and swing before attempting school work, especially if anxiety is high.  How do you incorporate sensory regulation into your homeschool day?

If you'd like to see my 5 video clips (8-12 minutes each), please head over to my guest post in the CM Day in the Life series for links with descriptions, or click on them below.
