We know many of the big names in the world of social media. You know, the pages and accounts with thousands of followers.
And those pages are fantastic with plenty of good information.
But hidden in the corners and around the bend are tons of homeschooling moms who are sharing their wisdom and their journeys on their social media accounts.
Today I want to share five smaller accounts that inspire me, brighten my facebook feed, and encourage me on my parenting journey.
Every year I add a few things to our homeschool to improve our routines, maintain my sanity, and address the ever-changing needs of the rapidly maturing kids in my house.
And change can be good.
This year we’ve added a few tools that are making a big difference and these are my top five.
We love to play with language in our house.
Words. Idioms. Jokes. Figurative language.
It’s all part of the atmosphere of learning that we have created in this house and it is easier to create that you might realize.
We repeat our favorite lines from movies and TV shows, share silly puns, attempt to solve riddles, and experiment with new vocabulary words. There isn’t a limit to the many ways you can play with words and language in your home.
I bet you’ve already started to realize how much your family plays with language as well, so let’s talk about ten ideas you can incorporate into your family lifestyle.
I can hardly believe my oldest child is entering the tenth grade. This means that I am homeschooling 10th grade whether I am ready or not. HA!
Independent courses. Drivers License. Working two jobs.
She is growing up so quickly and it makes me truly grateful that we have bonus time together because she decided to remain enrolled in our homeschool for high school.
Of course, as my oldest child and first high school student, she remains my guinea pig. I am thankful that we have her successful freshman year of high school behind us because it gives me even more confidence as we move forward. We are confidently proceeding forward with our plans for homeschooling 10th grade.
The ColorKu board game is a great game to teach your children. It can be played alone or with a friend, which makes it a perfect game to keep for a rainy day.
The ColorKu board game is similar to Suduko, but uses colors instead of numbers. The same type of logical reasoning is involved so your kids will develop their thinking skills while having fun.
SQUILT music guides have been a perfect fit for music appreciation in our homeschool.
We enjoyed the Modern Era guide during the 2017-2018 school year and we will select another guide for our next school year.
Planning language arts in your homeschool can feel like a daunting task.
Today I share some of the resources that I am using for my 10th, 8th, 6th, and 4th graders.
