Strengthen Your Family Through Biblical Homeschooling

Tag: Resources

I’ll be honest, I have been a real curmudgeon when it comes to online events. I am so committed to getting people together for fellowship and encouragement that I have been very late to the game in evaluating the benefits of online equipping and encouraging events. Through our online video meetups in the Teach Them Diligently 365 community, though, I have come to really appreciate the way we can all get together virtually to share our hearts and learn together as homeschool moms.

With this fresh new year upon us, many of us are looking for that kind of encouragement. We all want to find the foundational principles and strategies that will help us grow more in 2019 than we ever have before. I wanted to share a few things that I truly believe will be a great help to you and your family this year.

A New Year, Your Best Year 2019 Conference For Moms

This is not a Teach Them Diligently produced event, but the following is the information from their website:

You want to make 2019 the best year ever, right?! But then again, don’t you say that every year? This year CAN and will be different! Do any of these sound like you?

  • You’ve made some goals for the new year, but you’re afraid that you won’t follow through.
  • You want to be a better wife and/or mother in 2019.
  • You finally want to get your finances under control this year!
  • You want to get {and stay} healthy!
  • You want to simplify your life.
  • You want to conquer the clutter in all areas of your life.
  • You want to find a fitness plan that fits your busy lifestyle.
  • You want to be a better manager of your time.
  • You want to learn new planning techniques that will actually work for you.
  • You want to deepen your faith in 2019.
  • You want to make more time for you.
  • You want to have a more involved, cohesive family life.
  • You need some fresh meal planning ideas.

If so, then the A New Year, Your Best Year: 2019 Conference for Moms is for you! 

The price for this online conference is only $20 for lifetime access to more than 150 video workshops (I’ll be presenting 2 of them– one on praying for your children (and how that will change your life) and one on discipleship-focused parenting!)  If you register on or before January 3, though, you can secure the early bird registration rate of only $15 for the same lifetime access. This is a GREAT way to jumpstart your new year hand-in-hand with me and several Teach Them Diligently favorites– Hal and Melanie Young, Rachael Carman, Kerry Beck, Lesa Dale, and others. Click here to get  more information and to sign up for this online mom-con.

(Please note that since we are not the producers of this event, we cannot personally vouch for all the speakers or presentations. As always, we should be discerning and thinking Biblically as we listen.)

Teach Them Diligently 365

This members-only community is starting out 2019 with a serious boost in commitment and focus. If you truly want to make sure that 2019 is your best year yet, I invite you to join us there. The first three weeks of every month, there will be a video mini-workshop of sorts available to you, whether it be in the form of an interview/conversation with a Teach Them Diligently speaker or a lesson from my heart, you will find very helpful, focused content every week of the year to give you that boost that you need to rethink every area of your life and to endeavor to bring it all in line with how God’s Word tells us  to live. On the fourth week of each month, we will have an online members-only meetup. During those meetups, we’ll chat and go a little deeper into the content we have been discussing as we all mentor and learn from one another. With additional ways to connect with other like-minded moms throughout the year– and enhanced offerings at Teach Them Diligently events, joining Teach Them Diligently 365 now will give you day by day encouragements and helps to keep you focused and thriving all year long.

Teach The Diligently Book

Finally, the Teach Them Diligently book provides a Biblical look at discipleship-focused parenting.

How I hope that as you read through the pages of this book, you will be encouraged by the fact that the fear of losing our children is not even discussed in God’s Word.   Instead, He gives us instructions on how we as their parents are to set them on the way they should go. Yes, we live in a fallen world, and sadly people act like fallen people — a lot. Were that not true, we would never see any exceptions to the inspired Proverb in which we are told to “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). But we can take heart in that God’s perfect plan for our families is that our children will be trained well in their youth, and that when they start choosing their own way, they will continue in what they have learned. The One who knows our hearts and our children’s hearts best is the One we should trust. And it is exploring that role, in His great design for our families, that this book seeks to do.

I pray that after the last page is turned, you will walk away with a better vision for parenting your children the way God intended, with an actual game plan, and that you will have a much deeper trust in Him, confident in His ability to hold your children close as they grow. He is strong and mighty, and He loves them with an everlasting love.

No matter what resources you avail yourself of, I pray that 2019 is truly a blessed year for you and for your family. I pray that God will show Himself strong, that you will grow closer to Him day by day, and that your family will be stronger at the end than it is as we embark on this year. I look forward to getting to know many of you through TTD365 and our events this Spring. How I pray you will join us there!!

Middle school students are mature enough to begin thinking more deeply about Thanksgiving. They are able to complete more complex assignments about the related history. Thanksgiving unit studies for middle school students create hands-on learning opportunities when holiday excitement makes it hard to concentrate on text books.

Children who enjoy role playing may enjoy creating costumes and writing plays for friends and family to participate in. Costume making combines history and home economics subjects. Who doesn’t like getting two for one? Perhaps your reluctant writer will forget to be reluctant when carried away by writing the play?

Ways to Teach the History of Thanksgiving

Unit studies allow elementary and older children to work on the same historical time period together. Expand the requirements for an elementary unit study to make it middle school appropriate.

1)  Research Pilgrim-era games and teach them to younger friends and family during the holidays.

2) Create a timeline of Pilgrim leaders and other historical figures who lived at the same time, etc.

3) Identify the character traits, good and bad, of the major figures in the Pilgrim story. Did those traits help or hurt the person? Which of those traits to you see in yourself?

4) Computer savvy youngsters may want to create a power point presentation of their findings on a Thanksgiving related topic.

Nothing like knocking out two subjects with one assignment!


Visit the Thanksgiving unit study at 123 Homeschool 4 Me. Ideas include: costumes, quills, DIY marbles, Johnny Cakes, and book printables. I love the hands on activites included in this engaging unit study. Especially for a youngster who learns by doing more than reading, hands on activities make learning easier.

Want to teach your middle school student more about Plymouth Rock? Take the ideas from Fall Into First and create more challenging tasks for middle schoolers while working with younger ones on the same topics.

Love Pinterest? Amanda Bennett has a wonderful board of unit study ideas.

The website In All You Do offers a free printable Thanksgiving unit study for pre-K through 5th grade.

Field of Daisies has listings of poems, audiobooks, a play, science activities, and loads of cooking fun tucked inside the Old Fashioned Thanksgiving unit study. Math, music, Bible studies and  printables round out this wonderful resource.

Unit studies may seem challenging for moms who are more comfortable with text book based learning. The holiday season is a good time to try one on for size. Offer your middle schoolers the opportunity to use unit studies and broaden their understanding of colonial history while celebrating Thanksgiving.

Free Resource – The 14 Day Starter Bible Devotional for Homeschool Moms!

Bible Devotional for Homeschool Moms

Focusing on the foundation of your homeschool provides a powerful anchor to direct your day and your school teaching to the Gospel. A short focus on the foundation at the beginning of your day will bear massive results.

    Each entry can be read in minutes each day.
    It is amazing how other priorities fall in line when we get the foundation right each day. Starting with the correct priority will minimize distraction.
    Teach Them Diligently is known for addressing the heart of discipleship in homeschooling. Let us help!

Many homeschool families make a drastic change when their children hit middle school or high school–they stop homeschooling.

Some make this change based on well-thought-through decisions and preferences. The choice is what they’ve determined is best for them, and that’s wonderful! Those families are not who I am writing to today.

I’m addressing those who really want to continue homeschooling but don’t think they have what it takes to homeschool into the upper grades, those who are fearful they might “mess up” their child’s education or chance of getting into college.

You DO have what it takes, and you won’t mess up anything!

One of the reasons I know this? RESOURCES. Resources abound, online and off, to help you through and lead you along the path.

Resources for Homeschooling Middle School and High School

Homeschool Guidance Counselor– Teach Them Diligently has set up a FREE homeschool guidance counselor program that is designed to give you all the information you need to homeschool your children all the way through high school. Starting with a downloadable road map for each year and continuing with monthly email reminders of what you can expect and weekly office hour videos, and culminating in onsite helps and information at Teach Them Diligently events, the Homeschool Guidance Counselor program is the most comprehensive help for high school available. Sign up today and get started homeschooling high school with a lot more confidence.

Homeschool Guidance Counselor Facebook Group— Through the free guidance counselor program, we also make available a private homeschool high school Facebook group, moderated by Matthew Bullington, the TTD guidance counselor. This is a great place to watch the weekly office hours videos live, interact with others who are homeschooling high school, ask your questions, and more. Join us there today!

*HSLDAThere is a ton of general homeschooling information here, but they also have links for specific state education websites where you can find graduation requirements. Very important stuff to know!

*The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling Teens by Debra Bell–Inside this incredible resource you will find: tools for developing critical and creative thinking skills, study-smart strategies for maximized learning, what to do if your child is behind or ahead, how to prepare your child for high school during grades 6–8, all the forms, charts, and resources you will need to teach your child through high school, and much more”. This is a fabulously detailed and encouraging book!

*Let’s Homeschool High SchoolThere are ways to connect with other high school parents here, ways for your kids to connect with other homeschool high schoolers, and an amazing amount of practical helps and tips. This is a great place to start if you’re just beginning to look into homeschooling through high school. They’ve got a beginner’s guide that is quite helpful.

*CurrClickThis site offers live online classes, book studies, specialty classes, and much more for all ages.

*Lee Binz, The Home ScholarLee is a fantastic source of information and has answers for pretty much any question you might have about homeschooling into the upper grades.

*Homeschool High Facebook PageThis is a group on Facebook for homeschooling parents of high schoolers. Have questions? Ask away! Searching for curriculum ideas? Get a feel for what others have used. Not sure what subjects to include for what year? Hear from those who have tried different methods. This is a wonderful support community.

*Online Schools and Curriculum–If you prefer for your child to be accountable to someone other than you for their work, there are many options available for online schools and classes. Here are just a few: MorningStar Academy (an online Christian school), Apologia (offers online science and Bible/apologetics/worldview classes for grades 7-12), Alpha Omega Academy (an online Christian school), BJU Press (online distance learning). and Liberty Online Academy (online distance learning.)

*People who have “been there”–One of the great resources available to you is someone who has walked the path you are just stepping foot on! And there are many of them out there! Here is one, for example: Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers. Kris has lots of curriculum posts and ideas, plus great encouragement for how to raise teens, homeschool them, and LOVE DOING IT!

*Your student–An exciting component to homeschooling your upper grade students is tailoring their education to their interests, passions, and strengths. As your children mature and get a clearer picture of where they may be headed after graduation, you can gear their years at home toward those goals and desires. Lee Binz who is mentioned above, really focuses on this aspect of homeschooling your older children.

*Yourself–Yes, you! You know your child and are still his or her best teacher, even into the middle and high school years.

Will you, as the homeschool parent, need to do your homework, a.k.a research and plan? Yes. Will you need to know the requirements? Yes. Will you need to keep track of curriculum and credits? Yes. Is all this really doable? Absolutely.

Let’s Go BEHIND-THE-SCENES to get to know Ray and Charlene Notgrass

After 22 years in church ministry, Ray and Charlene Notgrass decided to serve God in a different way by writing Bible curriculum for homeschoolers. At their first convention, a mother told us that she wished someone would write a Tennessee history, so they decided to write one and call it Exploring Tennessee. They included Bible study in it. Two years later Ray wrote Exploring America for high school. This time they included Bible and added literature. They kept listening to homeschooling parents and writing what they told us they wanted, first for high school and then for middle school and junior high. Now they are writing for grades 1-4 as well. Ray and Charlene believe that God has been preparing them since childhood to do what they are doing now. Their goal of writing Bible curriculum has grown into history curriculum that includes Bible and literature. Thus they are able to share God’s Word with many more homeschooling families. Charlene says, “It was His plan, not ours, and we love what we do.”

Did you know…
Ray and Charlene are personally connected to history stories they tell. Their ancestors include a French-Canadian fur trader who fought with the Continental Army during the American Revolution; pioneers who traveled through Cumberland Gap and on the Tennessee, Ohio, and Cumberland Rivers to found Nashville, Tennessee; and veterans who served during the Civil War, World War II, and the Korean War. They stand on the shoulders of Ray’s dad, who encouraged him to read great literature, and Charlene’s dad, who took her family to historic sites. Those formed the basis for how they taught their own children, what they like to do for fun (read great books and travel to historic sites), and how they write for other homeschooling families.

We think you’ll love them, too! :) Make your plans to stop by the Notgrass booth in Nashville, Atlanta and Myrtle Beach to say hi!

Behind-The-Scenes With Author Cassandra Driver

Cassandra Driver was homeschooled all the way through school and self-published her first book at age eighteen. As she developed a love for reading while growing up, she rapidly realized there wasn’t an overabundance of clean books out there! This spurred her to try her hand at writing in order to put more wholesome and exciting stories on the shelves, particularly for young people, and the Lauren Series was born. Cassandra now has published 3 books in the Lauren Series with a 4th due out soon. Make sure you stop by and meet Cassandra at #TTDNashville!
