It’s been awhile since I made a notebooking video, so today I thought I’d share a quick video about notebook styles and their advantages/disadvantages.
As someone who is very vocal about questioning the narrative, I’ve had many people ask for advice on how to teach our children to do the same. Here’s one example of what we’re doing right now.
As my family prepares for the start to our new homeschool year next week, I’ve been thinking about the impact read-alouds have had on us for going on 13 years now. I know some parents are a little intimidated at the thought of having a read-aloud routine, so today I’m sharing some tips on how to relax this time together.
It’s been a while since I added a new video to my Homeschool FAQs series, so I thought I was about due. People often ask me if they can (or even should) pull their kids from school mid-year in order to homeschool. Here’s my two cents.
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!
In today’s video, I’m hoping to clear up the misconception that #homeschooling always has to look like school at home by sharing some tips on how to support self-directed learning.
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.
I remember when I started homeschooling. I desperately wanted to see some examples of a typical #homeschool day, but every time I searched, I kept seeing the same thing: THERE IS NO TYPICAL HOMESCHOOL DAY.
I’ll be honest, that discouraged me a little bit. As lovely as blissful, spontaneous days sound, some of us NEED structure – even if it’s only a little bit, and there’s NOTHING wrong with that.
I ordered a couple other books for our upcoming #homeschooling year. Fun-Schooling Math Mysteries and Classic Children’s Copywork, so today I’m just sharing a sneak peek.
