Do you love using books and stories to help build character in your children but don’t always have the time or energy to read aloud to them? Read alouds with your kids can be so wonderful but I’m guessing that, like me, you have a long list of to-do’s and can’t always get to it. Audiobooks are such a great option as you can get a few minutes to breathe as you listen along with your children.
Are you starting to look into colleges with your homeschooled high schooler? While it may feel like an overwhelming task at times, thankfully there are some great college options for homeschooled children, including colleges that seek out homeschoolers.
Finding a writing curriculum that is a good fit for your homeschool isn’t always an easy task. For our own homeschool, writing is an area that I’ve struggled to find the right resources for my 9-year-old. We’ve tried a few different things that made me feel like I was just “winging it” and left me wondering if he was learning all that he could and should be.
It may seem that there is no need for a reading curriculum after your child learns how to read and is reading well on their own. However, there is so much more to reading than just knowing how to do it.
As a homeschooler I have learned the importance of me finding ways to enjoy our studies as much as the children do. After all, there won’t be much joy or excitement in our homeschool if the teacher is b.o.r.e.d.
Instilling a love for reading and learning. Making beautiful memories with our children. Helping them grow their faith while growing our own. These are the things important to many homeschoolers. And finding a top-notch reading and language arts curriculum to meet these objectives is extremely important.
You’ve decluttered, organized your homeschool paperwork, books and supplies and now it’s time to sustain your progress. Even if you aren’t to the point of perfect organization, that’s ok. You need a system for sustaining right from the start!
The task of organizing homeschool books and supplies can be really overwhelming. If you are just starting out you might be wondering the best place to put everything and what organizing tools you need. If you have been homeschooling for a while, you might be wondering how you’ve accumulated so much stuff and where to go with it all.
All. The. Papers. Ugh. I often wonder where all the papers come from. Between the outside classes and everything we are doing at home, we have so many different papers all the time. You too?
Papers, books, crayons, games, little morsels of paper, play doh, workbooks, puzzles, projects, folders scrap paper, binders, markers, construction paper, crayons, pencils, pens, worksheets, art projects and the list goes on.
Ah, yes. That’s my home.
Do you love the idea of a completely organized homeschool space and schedule? Does the thought of having everything in place with all paperwork in corresponding folders and books all neatly on a shelf sound amazing to you?
As homeschoolers, we have a lot on our plates, so the thought of having to try and get everything organized and in order can be very overwhelming. Some days we can barely get through our lessons, much less master organization!
