The other week, I made a post on Instagram talking about how quickly I plan a #homeschool week for seven kids. This prompted several questions about how I do it, so today I’m going to share that with you.
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.
There are quite a few topics that I think aren’t talked about enough in the #homeschooling community, and this is one of them. It’s so important to know the signs of #homeschool burnout so that you can properly handle it.
You may have thought I was done talking about unit studies, but nope! Today I’m sharing the pros and cons.
This is our last week of our 6-week break, and I’m going to be honest – I have NOT been looking forward to starting back up again like I normally am. Since I didn’t want my kids to sense my lack of enthusiasm, I’ve been racking my brains to figure out what needs to happen.
I think I’ve got it – a newly tweaked routine.
One of the first questions I usually hear from people when they discover that I’m a #homeschooling mom of eleven is: How do you #homeschool so many kids? For starters, since I have four adult children, I’m not homeschooling eleven, although I was homeschooling ten at one point. Right now, I have seven school age children, which I realize is still a lot to some people. 😉 There are a few things I’ve learned over the past twelve years that have really helped me to realize that not only can large family homeschooling work, but it can be the best thing you ever did for your kids.
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.
Ever since I posted the video last week about why we stopped using a #homeschool room, I’ve been wanting to show you how we organize our homeschool in a 730 sq. ft. house. When you’re low on space and resources, the key is functionality and practicality.
Lately I’ve been seeing lots of beautiful photos of #homeschool rooms that are totally Pinterest-worthy. Knowing what I know about other homeschool moms, I’m sure there are those who might be feeling guilty because they either don’t have the space for one or simply found that having a homeschool room didn’t work for them. Today’s video is dedicated to them. ❤
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.
