Workshops from Jolanthe Erb ( may vary by event location )
Managing School and Home
When the entire family is home all day, it can be difficult to find a balance between the housework and school time. Meals need to be cooked, laundry needs to be done, and life fills in all the cracks. You'll walk away from this sessions with tips, helps, and ways to balance it all - without losing your sanity in the process.
Choosing Curriculum for Your Family
Choosing homeschool curriculum for your family can be overwhelming. In this session, you'll receive tips for choosing programs that work for your family, ways to save money (and time), and what to do when a program isn't working out.
Meal Planning Made Simple
Tired of searching the pantry for meal fixings at 5pm? From breakfast to dinner and all the snacks in between, our families need to be fed. Meal planning doesn't have to be a long and elaborate process - it can be detailed or simple - and you CAN do it, in 15 minutes or less!
Planning for the High School Years
Have a middle or high schooler? Plan to make this workshop a priority! Despite what may be years of successful homeschooling, thinking of high school can bring all the fears and doubts of the early years resurging in a homeschool parent’s heart. During this workshop we'll cover topics such as keeping records, tracking credits, creating transcripts, dual enrollment, teaching difficult subjects, and building a plan with your child's input (choosing electives and planning for the future).
