It can be so easy for us large family #homeschool parents to focus on learning together as a family that we lose sight of the benefits of one-on-one learning, as well.
We just had our homeschool evaluations yesterday, so now I’m ready to start thinking about next year (okay…next MONTH). I decided to change up my homeschool planner this year from the generic composition book I usually use to something more interesting – a homeschool planning notebook. While I was ordering the notebook, I saw these cute timeline notebooks recommended, and the rest is history!
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.
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.
