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.
One of the most important things to do as a homeschooling parent is to read about it – different methods, different learning styles, anecdotal stories, etc. – before you start.
Even seasoned homeschooling parents can benefit from reading books such as these. They can give you new ideas and simply rejuvenate you when you need it most.
Today on my YouTube channel, I shared my favorite books about homeschooling.
Have you ever considered the possibility of unintentionally overschooling your kids? There can never be too much education, right? Well, I think we need to point out that schooling and education are two different things, and YES. It is possible to overschool your kids.
There are a few qualities based on stereotypes that people believe you have to have in order to be a #homeschool mom that aren’t actually necessary. Today I’m going to share with you the qualities you do need.
Homeschooling parents, I beg you. Don’t lock yourself or your child into a box with school timelines. If you are obsessed with keeping your children in lock step with the schools, you are not reaping the full benefits of homeschooling.
A word of advice for all the new homeschool moms excitedly planning out their upcoming year – don’t give up on homeschooling because of your curriculum.
