Emergency Homeschooling Basics

There are few things more scary than being thrown into an unfamiliar situation completely unprepared. There’s no denying that these are crazy times, and we all need to be praying in earnest.

Parents everywhere are living in uncertainty as schools are canceled for weeks, possibly months, on end, and wondering how their kids will be educated.

That’s why I made this video. While some schools have turned to online learning, others have simply closed. Truth be told, kids will learn no matter what they do, but this situation has many parents thinking about the future.

I'm Shelly, a Christ-following, homeschooling Mom of eleven children ( okay, not ALL children. My oldest is 23.) I met my husband right after graduation, and we've been together ever since. Though my life can be hectic at times... okay, ALL the time, I wouldn't change it for anything.

  1. LOL! Shelly I love you! You are speaking my language. I am so excited for these kids to be out of school! My kids were just noting that these kids are probably going to want to be homeschooled after this break. I really hope a lot of people watch this.

  2. I love the idea of reading aloud to kids. That was my favorite part of homeschooling with my son and daughters. We lived in Canada at the time so we fell in love with Robert Munsch storybooks. But over the years we have read some great classics together and those are memories I really cherish. Anyway, great video, Shelly. I hope it helps many.


  3. This is a really helpful post for everyone; thanks for sharing. And Christina, your blog is extremely valuable too. I posted 101 Ideas for Homeschool this Week on my blog http://www.homeschoolguru.org recently and it seemed to go down well. As you say, I’m very sorry for the families who are struggling at the moment but I think it’s fantastic to see how many people are actually really enjoying this time with their children and realising the benefits of home education. It would be good if there could be more learning both ways in the education system, as some of the techniques of home schooling would be beneficial to introduce to the classroom setting,
