Today I finally posted a video about our new homeschool routine. Sometimes change is good!
The morning basket has made a reappearance in our homeschool routine, and it has been a lifesaver! In today’s video, I shared what a morning basket is and what resources are in ours.
Last week, I announced that there will be some changes in our homeschool. This is the first week we started implementing them, and so far, so good.
Today on my channel I shared all the new resources I’ve been so excited to use.
I mentioned last week in a video that we’re changing things up in our homeschool. One of the things we’re doing differently is notebooking. Instead of our typical notebooking loop, all of my kids will have a Funschooling journal. They’re such a hit with my teens that I couldn’t resist.
Today on my channel, I did a flip-through of the Funschooling journals my littles and middles will be using.
I’ve held this in for a long time. In the past several months, I’ve encountered so many people who are upset over the state of our schools, whether it’s due to vaccine mandates, inappropriate curriculum, bullying, pedophiles school employees, etc. That’s completely understandable. People SHOULD be upset.
Unfortunately, most of these parents say they’re interested in homeschooling, only to instantly blow it off because they can’t live on one full time income.
I get it. There are a small number of people for which this is true…and I say very small. For the rest, their priorities could use some readjusting.
As a mom of 11, I KNOW how hard it is to live on one income. It’s a struggle, but in the end it comes down to what’s important.
Your possessions? Or your children?
Let’s talk learning styles. There are so many different types. That can make traditional education a bit tricky.
Homeschooling is such a blessing in that it allows every family to choose a method that fits them. Unit studies happen to be one of my favorite approaches because, unlike many other styles, they include activities for EVERY learning preference.
Unfortunately, many people don’t know that. In fact, the idea of unit studies scares a good many homeschooling parents to pieces. Don’t let the myths about unit studies intimidate you. They can work for every family. All you need to do is give them the chance.
Homeschooling: The Jammies vs Dressed Debate. Can you imagine how blessed we are if this is something we actually spend time thinking about?
But it is. Conversations like these can be found in many a homeschooling circle, so today I brought it to my channel.
I realized yesterday that I hadn’t added any new Homeschooling 101 videos to my series in a while, so today I solved that problem.
The idea of short lessons was first introduced to me when I was researching the Charlotte Mason method. It made so much sense that I immediately implemented it and have been doing it ever since.
Watch my latest video to see why you, too, should keep your homeschool lessons short.
I’ve been thinking about how often I’ve talked about what homeschooling is, and how I’ve regularly addressed different approaches that can be used, but today’s video is coming from just a little different angle…
Homeschooling doesn’t have to be ________.
How would you fill in the blank?
When it comes to homeschooling and grade levels, different families believe different things. Some families do everything they can to adhere to the grade their child would be in were he/she in school. Others ditch them altogether.
In today’s video, I shared some practical advice on grade levels, when they might be necessary, and why they’re not nearly as important as we’ve been led to believe.
