Description

Feeling lost about the new school year? Not sure how to make a schedule and rhythm that works for your family?Homeschooling for the first time? Whether you are a homeschool veteran or choosing virtual schooling in this time of pandemic you will find some tips and tricks for successfully homeschooling your children in the new year.

In this zoom class, I will teach you how to set your yearly big goals and backward plan your school year to fit whatever curriculum and style you choose. We will start by looking at your child’s strengths and weaknesses using brainstorming worksheets and I will help you set your goals and personal priorities. Then we will dive into the planning process so you can learn to backward plan your lessons and find a variety of ways to assess how you are doing on your path. I will provide you with resources for finding a curriculum that fits, planning templates, brainstorming worksheets, and a chance to pick my brain about your unique needs. We will cover time management, weekly planning, outside educational opportunities like co-ops, and fostering independent learning in your child. You can learn how to flexibly teach and make your homeschool rhythm work around your work and home life schedule. All resources will be made available in PDF format the day of the class so you can print them out and be prepared to dive right into planning.
