Are you getting ready for Back to School?
I am slowly getting our things together. Getting last minute items and adding in my nephew to the school day. That will be an adjustment for sure. But it will be a good and welcome journey.
We are currently rearranging the basement to help accommodate my need for order and the boys need to just be. We are only half way through but it looks good and it works.
One of the things I’ve done is looked at a few trusted homeschool websites, read their articles on how to choose curricula. I wrote a list of what I wanted to teach, what I have, what I want, and what I need and what could I possibly afford.
I also have this handy form for you to use if you prefer that.
The websites I’ve looked at are Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers, Confessions of a Homeschooler, Focus on the Family,1+1+1=1, 3 Dinosaurs, and so many more. There are gret sites out there, you just have to look for them. I pull a lot of my items from 3 Dinosaurs and the partners she works with.
Not much of our curriculum is bought. Just our Math and Language Arts. Everything else you can pretty much find for FREE!. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to homeschool. It only costs your time with your kids.
Anything can be a learning experience. You just have to learn to have fun with it and sometimes, just let go.
What are your plans for the next year? Have you started yet? Leave me a message I’d love to hear from you.
