Today I would like to share the lyrics to “The Fourteen Days of Homeschool” with you, it is a fun twist on a classic Christmas song!
The Fourteen Days of Homeschool
Day One: Can you homeschool legally?
Day Two: Are they socialized?
Day Three: Do you give them tests?
Day Four: What about P.E.?
Day Five: YOU ARE SO STRANGE!
Day Six: How long will you homeschool?
Day Seven: Look at what they’re missing!
Day Eight: Why do you do this?
Day Nine: They’ll miss the prom!
Day Ten: What about graduation?
Day Eleven: I could never do that!
Day Twelve: Can they go to college?
Fed up, the homeschooling mom replies…
“On the thirteenth day of homeschool I thoughtfully replied: ‘They Can go to college, yes you can do this, they can have graduation, we don’t like the prom, we do it ’cause we like it, they are missing nothing, we’ll homeschool forever, WE ARE NOT STRANGE!, We give them P.E., and we give them tests, they are socialized, AND WE HOMESCHOOL LEGALLY!’”
… the neighbor is suddenly excited …
“On the fourteenth day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, ‘How can I get started, why didn’t you tell me, where do I buy curriculum, when is the next conference, WILL PEOPLE THINK WE’RE STRANGE? I think we can do this, if you will help us, we’ll join a sports team, and we’ll homeschool legally.’”
I do not know who originally wrote this song, and could not find a solid answer online, but regardless it’s a great song. We sang it at a co-op Christmas party a few years ago, although we changed some of the lyrics. Also, here is the video of different group doing it! Enjoy! (If you receive our email post you will not be able to see the video from the email.)
Obviously, this video is a little old, but it was the best I could find.
