How to Evaluate Your School Year

I don’t know about you, but we are almost through the school year. Yay! At the end of the school year, it is a good idea to evaluate what worked, and what didn’t.

Here are three questions to ask yourself at the end of the school year. These questions will help you evaluate your school year, let you get a good idea of how it went, and what changes you may need to make.

How to Homeschool Multiple Grades

When I first began homeschooling, I was terrified of homeschooling multiple grades. My middle (at that time my youngest) was only two, but the thought of her being in preschool and teaching my oldest at the same time made me cringe. Looking back, I can laugh because I know that preschool isn’t difficult, and teaching Kindergarten is nothing like teaching 4th grade but at the time, it really stressed me out!

How to Find a Homeschool Space

I have been homeschooling for close to 5 years. Our first few years we did not have a homeschool room. Once baby number 3 was added to our small home, we decided more space was in order. We added on a nice size homeschool/playroom, and since then have had a designated homeschool space.

How to Organize a Homeschool Portfolio

Whether or not your state requires homeschool assessment it is a good idea to keep a record of your child’s schoolwork each year. One way to do this is by keeping a portfolio. Homeschool portfolios can be as in depth or simple as you want to make them.

Simple Tip

Sometimes the easiest things become the biggest stumbling blocks to a smooth school day.  “Where’s my pencil?”  “I need an eraser.”  “I can’t find any notebook paper.”  As homeschool families we LIVE in our homes far more than most.  The piles of busy-ness can easily become a cluttered mess.  Spending just a bit of time to create a homeschool supplies area will bring smoothness to your days that will bless immensely!  Probably it has been on your to-do list for months.  If so, may this be just the encouragement you need to create your spot today.
