Large Family Homeschool Tip: Let Your Child Teach

Although I #homeschool a bunch of kids, I know that I don’t often share things specifically geared towards #largefamily #homeschooling. That’s because since our routine has stayed largely the same for several years, I felt like I already shared all the tips I’ve used.
