Homeschool Language Arts Curriculum Choices for 7 Kids

Now that we’ve finished another homeschool year, it’s time to start thinking about the next one, which for us is next month.

Today on my channel I shared our language arts choices for our 7 remaining homeschooled kids.

What I’ve Learned About Housekeeping While Homeschooling

Before we started homeschooling, I was a complete neat freak, and I prided myself on it. Making the transition to having my kids home all the time meant making some changes not only to my routine, but to my expectation of perfection.

Today on my channel, I shared a video from my Patreon archives: What I’ve Learned About Housekeeping While Homeschooling.

Our Homeschool Is Changing! Our New Curriculum Reveal!

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.

Our Newest Funschooling Books!

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 Can’t Afford to Homeschool.” | Let’s Talk About Priorities

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?

Unit Studies Are Perfect for Every Learning Style

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

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.

Homeschooling 101: Keep Your Lessons Short

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.
