S4E10: When They are Behind Part 2

9/17/2018
More
Truth bomb: not every child learns at the same rate. Individual development, interests, learning challenges, and personality all play in to the pace that learning happens! Society takes the highs and lows of our children’s intelligence and draws an arbitrary line in the middle that is “normal”. But it really isn’t normal for anyone, it’s […] The post When They Are Behind Part 2 appeared first on Homeschool On.

S4E9: Help! I'm Not Ready! *REVISED

9/5/2018
More
I love fall, I love the start of school, I love the smell of new books and the neatly organized books on the shelves. It is a blank slate of possibilities, another chance to do things differently. And yet this year as I look in my sty of a school room, where books are haphazardly […] The post Help! I’m Not Ready! appeared first on Homeschool On.

S4E8: Minimalist Homeschooling (Part 1)

8/21/2018
More
Minimalist homeschooling is a term that can have such a range of meaning that we’re going to, for the sake of time and sanity, consider it a rabbit hole. For one person it might mean cutting back for another it might mean using no curriculum at all! There are extremes and endless variances, but that […] The post Minimalist Homeschooling (Part 1) appeared first on Homeschool On.

In today’s podcast episode, we dive into your homeschool day. I share 6 practical tips […] The post How to Actually Like Homeschooling appeared first on Homeschool On.

S4E6: JUST a Homeschool Mom

8/8/2018
More
It never ceases to amaze me how we view ourselves through the lens of the labels affixed to us. Over time, perhaps a combination of repetition and acceptance, we limit the scope of who we are. We begin to believe that how we are viewed and described or what we DO defines us. And while […] The post JUST a Homeschool Mom appeared first on Homeschool On.

S4E5: My Biggest Homeschool Struggle

6/25/2018
More
Have you noticed that people don’t like to talk about their homeschool struggles? It’s like somehow it makes us look weak or not-sufficient or it gives homeschooling a bad name. We all sit in our houses trying to do our best and it can be pretty lonely if you don’t have someone that you can […] The post My Biggest Homeschool Struggle appeared first on Homeschool On.

S4E3: When They're Falling Behind

6/11/2018
More
Falling behind… this is a little bit of an undercurrent in the homeschool world. It exists, but it is clearly not talked about. There are supposed to be three camps in homeschooling: the gifted children, the struggling children, and the average children. Clearly the average children are still above average because of the simple fact […] The post When They’re Falling Behind… appeared first on Homeschool On.

Planning is one of my favourite topics to write about because I LOVE LOVE LOVE planning. I love pulling out my planner (together with it’s partner in crime, coffee), the feel of the soft leather in my hands and the weight of all my dreams and vision and goals carried within the pages.

S3E5: 5 Realities of a Christian Homeschooler Today

2/5/2018
More
When I was homeschooled, you could pretty much assume that any other homeschooler was a Christian family–it just went along with the territory. However in the past 25 years things look drastically different than they once did. With a large movement of secular homeschoolers joining the ranks (yay!), it can be difficult to find your […] The post 5 Realities of a Modern Day Christian Homeschooler appeared first on Homeschool On.

Homeschooling teens can be a huge challenge. Your kids are ready for more of a challenge, their interests and passions become more integral to their performance.
