Encouragement for Homeschool Moms

Networking with other homeschool moms is a way to receive advice, ideas, support and encouragement.

The homeschool mom community is a place of empowerment, strength, and creativity.

Get connected through your local library, museum, blogs, support groups, and home school conventions.

Community Building for Homeschool Moms

Community building is essential for homeschool moms.

Link up with other homeschool moms through homeschool providers like Classical Conversations, a classical Christian Community.

Time Management for Homeschool Moms

One of the best tools for homeschool time management is finding a preplanned homeschool curriculum.

These preplanned curriculums have lessons plans, video courses, activities, and testing to help you save time and stay on track.

Homeschool Mom Appreciation

Are you a homeschooler that has your mom as your teacher?

Homeschool moms have many roles from teacher, to mom, to errand runner, chef, and housekeeper.

Show your homeschool mom some appreciation with handpicked flowers, a handwritten note, or a simple “Thank you, Mom, for all that you do for me.”

Balancing Homeschooling and Marriage

In order to balance homeschooling, family and marriage, it is a good idea to create a schedule and ask your spouse for input.

Schedule time for school and time for rest as well as carving out time for your spouse. Plan ahead but allow yourself grace if you get off track.

Again, one of the awesome things about homeschooling is the ability to create your own schedule.

Happy family laughing together

Getting Your Kids Excited about Learning

As a homeschool parent, you are not limited to the four walls of a school or even your home.

Get your kids excited by taking weekly field trips. Have class outside by a beautiful lake or on the back porch or even by a camp fire.

Also, knowing you can get the school work knocked out in 3-5 hours instead of a full day of classes leaves plenty of time for extracurricular activities and hobbies like riding a bike, playing basketball, or learning a musical instrument.

How and Why to Incorporate Educational Travel into Your Homeschool

Teaching and learning can be fun! There are many ways students can learn through real-life experiences including educational travel. Many of us think of educational travel as something that is too expensive or too difficult. But educational travel doesn’t have to be to far-off or expensive destinations. It can include those, but with planning and budgeting, educational travel can be a reality for most homeschooling families! Why is educational travel important anyway? Because students can learn so much more through travel than they can with traditional academics alone! Not only can they learn about the states, cities, landmarks, and map skills in a hands-on way, but they can also learn more about relationship building, problem solving, and other life skills that they can’t learn effectively in any other way. We will share some practical, affordable ways to incorporate educational travel into your homeschool

Hebrews 11: 23 and 2 Kings 3:16. The secret of our Homeschooling “Why” and “How”

The “secret” to success in Homeschooling is there’s no secret! The elements of success in Homeschooling match those in discipleship, marriage, parenting, entrepreneurship and gardening.

My husband introduced me to gardening in 1981. I was ready to wean our 13-month old twins to baby food. He argued for a garden because “we don’t know who’s bottling that!” When I balked he said “Sweetie Pie, gardening is like pastoring and parenting. All require daily attention to detail in the same posture of humility, ‘head bowed, body bent.’ Folks who don’t have time to garden probably don’t have time to parent.” I joined him in the garden and learned the “secret” works in discipleship, marriage, parenting, entrepreneurship, gardening, and of course homeschooling. It isn’t easy but it’s also not complex. Homeschooling three sons to a state of holistic health required a challenging yet simple Morning by Morning approach. I’d love to share our “Why” and “How” Homeschooling “secrets” with you.

Finding Fun and Unique Ways to Teach Your Children

When we think of educating our children, we often think of our children sitting at desks or the kitchen table using textbooks and workbooks. While this kind of teaching/learning is enjoyable to some students, most students (and parents!) enjoy breaking out of the more traditional classroom setting in exchange for ideas and activities that are more fun! It is possible to incorporate alternative kinds of teaching and learning into your homeschool, and it doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive! There are ways to use hands-on activities, dance, poetry, drama, experiments, fun literature-related activities, music, travel, and more to spice up your homeschool! If you’re in a homeschool rut or if you’re just not sure how to add a little fun and adventure to your homeschool, we would love to share some ideas and information with you! Your children will thank you (Ok…it may be years from now! But they will!) and your family may discover a new love for learning this school year!
