5 Steps for Homeschool Reflection

It’s the time of year when our homeschool days can begin to drag or come to a complete stop. To help beat this mid-year slump, I propose spending time to reflect on the past few months of your homeschool. Reflecting on past experiences allows us to learn and gain an honest perspective, especially when related to identifying areas where we can improve. At the beginning of the year, I revealed to you my own reflection and today I’d like to share the 5 steps I take when reflecting on my homeschool.

For the rest of this post, join me over at Outmatched Mama where I have the privilege of guest posting for Day 7 of her Conquer the Homeschool Slump series.

If you have chosen to homeschool your children, and they are under the age of six, I’m sure you may have experienced the same anxiety I have on a particular issue. How do I teach my child to read?

Why I Switched Curriculums Mid Year

Why I Switched Curriculums Mid Year

There comes a time in almost every homeschooler’s life when they question the curriculum they are using with their children. That time arrived for me this year around February. If you read one of my earlier posts about the curriculum I chose to use this school year, you would know that I was loving All About Reading for my Language Arts program along with Living Education for Math. I also mentioned that I would be trying RightStart Math when I saved up and purchased the curriculum. Needless to say, as the title already indicates this, I completely changed everything. Check out my reasons why below and what curriculum I’m now using with my five-year old son.

5 Things I Love About Homeschooling vs. Public Schooling (Shared by a Former Teacher)

5 Things I Love About Homeschooling vs. Public Schooling (Shared by a Former Teacher)

I get a lot of funny looks when I say I homeschool my son. However, those facial expressions change quickly to surprise when I mention I am a former elementary school teacher. So many people ask me “why I would want to homeschool my kids rather than send them to public school” among other questions. Normally, I give a quick run down of some brief reasons then go on my merry way. But as I sat down to think about it more, I was able to flesh out 5 things I LOVE about homeschooling that I (or my son) would never be able to get in a public school setting.

Spring time is a time of new beginnings, healing and growth. From reading the 'The Secret Garden' it is clear to me that F.H. Burnett understood the significant positive value to a child's mental, physical and educational health, when it comes to spending time outdoors with nature. This book is a calling to all parents and educators to let our children loose amongst the miracles of Spring and allow nature to nurture them just like it did for the three little children in this story.

Learning about Bulbs: Results and Conclusion

Learning about Bulbs: Results and Conclusion

About four weeks ago, my son and I did an experiment with bulbs (see more here). We dissected and talked about the different parts of a bulb. We then forced them to grow in glass vases. Needless to say I was very surprised how quickly the hyacinths grew and bloomed. From the day we “planted” them, it only took 7 days for them to get to full bloom! During this week long experiment, my son and I made observations about the bulbs growth along with others. There were some interesting discoveries that I came to analyze and took note of.
