Signs of Homeschool Burnout
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.
Unit Study Pros and Cons
You may have thought I was done talking about unit studies, but nope! Today I’m sharing the pros and cons.
Our NEW Homeschool Routine for 2021 | 7 KIDS!!
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.
Large Family Homeschooling: How to Make It Work
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.
Homeschooling 101 | Geography Made Easy
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.

Homeschool Tour | How We Organize in a Very Small House
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.
Why We Stopped Using a Homeschool Room
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. ❤
My Favorite Books About Homeschooling!
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.
Large Family Homeschool Tip: Let Your Child Teach
Although I #homeschool a bunch of kids, I know that I don’t often share things specifically geared towards #largefamily #homeschooling. That’s because since our routine has stayed largely the same for several years, I felt like I already shared all the tips I’ve used.
As I was going through my book of video topics, I came across a note I made several years ago when my now-18-year-old daughter was teaching her siblings once a week. If you’re looking for a way to breathe life into your day, this might be just what you’re looking for.
