At my house, I usually use the summertime to begin planning how to homeschool my child. I use the Sanity Saver Planner to organize my thoughts and break down my homeschool planning into simple bite-sized chunks. I usually start with a year plan, broken down into semesters and then into quarters and then finally into weeks and days. I also try to keep it super simple just enough to keep our home education on track. So many parents end up feeling burnt out because they make a heavily detailed plan. If you ever take any of my advice, take this… a simple plan with simple tasks will take you to your homeschool planning goals without stress.
July Free Homeschooling Journal Printable
We’ve really enjoyed making these beautiful homeschool printable pages! We enjoy using them in our own homeschool, and are so happy we could share them with you. We suggest that you print out 29 copies using the front/back of the paper (that’s only 15 sheets) and then binding them together with something fun. For the older kids, we’ve chosen to print these pages smaller and when we go to print we simply choose 2 on a page. This makes it print with two copies of the journal on each face of the paper. Then we have some fun…we’ve punched a few holes along the edge and ran ribbon through and knotted them. We’ve also just stapled at the top, or you can simply put them in a 3 clip paper binder. We’ve also made beautiful monthly journals by coloring a cover page for the month and then binding them all together. Whichever method you choose to create your journal we’re sure it will be amazing!
How to Begin Planning with Homeschool Printables
Our team has combined their experience as homeschoolers and brought together a comprehensive group of home school resources that are designed to help you easily plan and navigate your homeschool year. Here are our five simple tips that answer the question “How to Homeschool My Child?”
- Check Your State Laws
- Research Homeschool Methods, Learning Preferences, and Curriculum – this is where we come in. We’ve developed several online quizzes that will help you diagnose your preferred homeschooling method, your child’s learning preferences, and even how to find homeschool resources that fit.
- Get plugged in- join a homeschool group or a co-op. Support in your journey is important, and if you can’t find a physical homeschool support group, please join us on FB or Instagram!
- Have a flexible plan. As I’ve already mentioned I need to plan, but a simple flexible plan is what seems to work best for almost all homeschooling families. Remember “KISS” – keep it simple, stupid. (personal motto)
- Listen to Yourself. Stay on top of how things are going. Homeschooling can be a joyful fulfilling experience but not if everyone is stressed out. Take breaks, switch curriculum, do what is needed to keep things positive.
