How I Used How to Homeschool
The videos are short (each video is about 10 to 20 minutes long), so it worked out perfectly to enjoy a video while drinking my tea after putting the kids to bed. It was a good way to transition from the busy day and relax before going to bed myself.
My favorite chapters were those that focused on organizing, both your day and your stuff. What struck me most was the points on flexibility. If one storage or set up solution isn’t working, try something different. If your daily schedule isn’t working, adapt. It is so easy to get caught up in the “perfect” Pinterest version of what your homeschool should look like, that it can be daunting to throw those ideas out the window and start from scratch.
Although I have been homeschooling for a couple years, I am still at the beginning of our journey. This resource made me think and actually put into words, things that I hadn’t thought about with purpose before. It’s one thing to decide to homeschool because it feels like the right decision and another altogether to specifically list out the “why” you are homeschooling. This resource will help you get there and provide support and encouragement along the way.
