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!
Blank printable calendars can be the perfect tool for organizing your schedule, tracking your goals and documenting important moments.
Are you just getting started homeschooling or are considering it as an option and want to know what homeschool supplies you need to get started?
Making slime is a super fun sensory activity for kids, even older kids and parents can enjoy playing with the big hunk of goo that comes out of mixing a couple of simple ingredients together.
One of my favorite things to do with the kids is read together. Not only do I really enjoy it, but it’s one of the things that we do consistently in our homeschool. There are some things that we end up skipping when we run out of time or don’t do consistently, but reading together is something we do almost every day.
Games are an excellent and fun way for kids to learn and in fact they often don’t even realize that they are learning! We use games often in our homeschool and I love that we can pull out a quick game when we have a few extra minutes and sneak some meaningful learning into the day.
Recently, I read a blog post from a mom who decided that it was a waste of time and effort to have her child write thank-you notes. Every time she asked her child to write the notes, her child would fight it. The child didn’t want to do it.
We have entered the busiest time of year for many people and it can be overwhelming, stressful, and difficult to stay organized. At the exact time when we want life to slow down so that we can celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus, we also experience a lot of pressure to get things done.
