How to Organize Your Homeschool—& Manage All the Materials!
There are so many things to juggle—and so much "STUFF" that comes with homeschooling! Books seem to take over. Paper doesn’t really seem to have a “home.” Just getting your homeschool day up and running takes longer than you ever imagined. Organizing your homeschool doesn't have to be overwhelming! Whether you are a veteran looking for some fresh ideas or totally new to homeschooling, this workshop is filled with practical tips and advice on how to plan out your year, simplify your day, motivate your kids—and free up your family time so you can all have more fun!
Stop Trying to Do Too Much! Simplify What & How You're Teaching!
Homeschool families tend to bite off more than they can chew when it comes to curriculum choices. We fall in love with all the "shiny and fun" curriculum without coming up with a game plan for how to implement it all. Often times, we need to simplify what we are doing and even ditch a little curriculum here and there. This practical workshop is filled with creative ideas on how to supplement what you are already doing and easily plan out a simpler homeschool year (maybe even without any curriculum for some subjects).
How to Homeschool Your “Bigs” with “Littles” in the House
How do you homeschool your "bigs" when you have "littles?" This is probably one of the hardest obstacles to homeschooling! The constant juggling act that has to be performed when there is more than one child in the house can tire out even the most experienced homeschool mom. This workshop will offer you handy tools and practical tips on how to better manage the circus act of homeschooling multiple children.

Help! I Homeschool and My House is a Mess!
Some days it feels like we have to make a decision: Will we get everything done with our homeschool work today or will we actually get our house clean? There doesn't always seem to be a middle ground. It feels like it's one or the other. Balancing homeschooling and homemaking is very hard work. Overwhelming work. In this workshop, Kristi shares some of her best "efficiency hacks" for managing her home (and still getting schoolwork done).
Homeschool Basics: How to Get Started, Keep Motivated, and Bring Out the Best in Your Kids
Whether you are starting with preschoolers or pulling kids out of public school, your first few years of homeschooling can be overwhelming. There are so many different curriculums to choose from, teaching and learning styles to discover. There's your own family rhythm to adjust to and state requirements to figure out. There’s also often added pressure from family and friends. Why would any parent choose to attempt to teach fractions or (gasp) long division when they can leave it to the professionals? Our goal is to provide encouraging information about homeschooling basics, plus give you thoughtful and informative ideas on how to get started and stay the course.
Finding Balance: Juggling Homeschooling with Home, Business, Ministry, & Life
Regardless of whether you are a stay at home mom, have a side business, work full time, help run a ministry, or are just trying to manage your home along with your homeschool, managing all that you have going on is hard work. Trying to "get it all done" seems impossible at times, especially when you throw homeschooling in the mix. This workshop is designed to help you organize your schedule to maximize your time. You'd be surprised just how much you can accomplish with a little bit of prioritizing. Get your pens ready to take notes as Kristi Clover shares some of her best "hacks" for juggling homeschooling with life.
