Planning with 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 simple tips that answer the question “How do I 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 and 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. (I’m speaking to myself!)
- 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, relax, set goals. And it’s fall – try some fun fall homeschool activities!
- Google the topic or theme for each of your unit studies to find the free homeschooling printables you need for the month.
- Print and then place in a folder ready for daily use.
