Sometimes simple really is better!
It’s June, which means it’s the perfect time for some lighter learning. Unit studies are a great way to accomplish that, and they’re so easy to just pull together on the fly.
I had originally planned to talk to you today about what we learned from #unschooling. Then I remembered a blog post I had written several years ago, which, in my opinion, perfectly explains why everyone should give unschooling a try.
In today’s video, I’m hoping to clear up the misconception that #homeschooling always has to look like school at home by sharing some tips on how to support self-directed learning.
As this #homeschool year winds down, I’m finding myself already getting excited over my new seasonal #homeschooling plan for the new year. Today I’m sharing our plan and curriculum.
It was FINALLY warm enough today for us to take a long walk at the canal. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do since June. Join us for our informal, relaxed nature study trip.
Back when I was constantly making #notebooking videos, people used to comment all the time to tell me how much they thought our family would enjoy @funschoolingbooks. Boy, were they right. These books add just the right amount of structure and direction to an otherwise self-directed lesson. I highly recommend them for every #homeschooling family.
Since our homeschool changes every now and then, today on my channel I shared how we’re using them right now.
As promised in my last video, I brainstormed several ideas for geography unit studies and shared them with you on my channel today.
Geography doesn’t have to be all labeling and memorization. It can be engaging and fun! It’s time to not only think outside the box but let go of the box completely!
One of my favorite things to talk about when it comes to #homeschooling is how to simplify it. Today I’m tackling a subject area I haven’t spoken about much before – #geography.
It doesn’t have to be all labeling and memorization. In fact, I’ve found that it’s easy and fun to incorporate without needing a curriculum for it at all.
Do you have a child with testing #anxiety – or any kind of anxiety? While #homeschooling children like this is a joy, test time can be somewhat challenging. Although I no longer use tests in our #homeschool (other than the required standardized tests), I know some parents are uncomfortable with forgoing tests completely, so today I’m sharing some tweaks you might find helpful.
