There’s a lot I haven’t touched on during this 31 day romp through the well-run homeschool. There’s so much to say and so little time to say it! Needless to say, I’ll keep right on writing about creating a well-run homeschool in your house when October is over. Right now I’d like to mention 5 resources which are super helpful as you plan, organize, and teach in the well-run homeschool.
5 Incredible Resources for the Well-Run Homeschool
1. Planning Kit
Pam over at Ed Snapshots has created an awesome planning kit. The kit walks you through making goals for your homeschool, choosing curriculum, and planning your well-run homeschool. I haven’t chatted much about planning during the romp through the well-run homeschool. But if you’re looking for an incredibly helpful resource to use right now, you won’t go wrong with Pam’s Planning Kit!
Mystie Winkler created an entire course on helping you get organized without going insane trying to adjust to a complicated system. It’s a lovely, simple plan which works! If you’d like a preview, I highly recommend the Brain Dump. It was a life-changing concept for me!
Notebooking Pages is an awesome resource for any homeschooler. Essentially you have the kids read, research, or study a topic. It can be the U.S. Presidents, explorers, states, countries, birds, science, trees, etc. There’s no limit to the range of topics you can use for notebooking pages. You print up a page for the children. They write about what they learned. My 1st grader writes a sentence. My 11th grader writes a short essay. The children also have the option of illustrating their notebook page. You end up with a beautiful record of everything your children studied over the year.
Morning time is a beautiful ritual to begin the homeschool day. It can also be a lovely regrouping time in the middle of the day. My family tends to have ‘morning time’ over lunch. The Morning Basket is a guide to helping you set up and create a beautiful morning time for your family, a morning time routine which will become the heart of your homeschool.
Don’t miss this practical guide to organizing your homeschool. Dr. Melanie Wilson walks you through every step you need to take to get your homeschool life in order. Seriously, it’s a week-by-week approach to organization. You begin in January with daily devotions and daily routine challenges. December ends with a curriculum review and getting getting the house company ready. It’s just what you need to organize your homeschool life in 2017!
These 5 resources will help you create a well-run homeschool that you love and adore. A homeschool you and your kids enjoy.
