Homeschool Planning: Subject Area Checklists

Welcome to Day 3 of the Back to Homeschool Challenge!! Today, let’s tackle the Subject Planning… I don’t know about you, but I really mull things over in the summer.  I generally have tentative plans at the end of the year for the new school year, but given some time, I often change course slightly.

End of Year Homeschool Questionnaire (Parent Reflection Questions)

Yesterday I shared the end-of-year questionnaire I wrote up for the kids.  There are some end-of-year things that I need to think about as well. Not only is it time to reflect on some of the things that went well (or didn’t), but it’s also time to take stock of what we/I need to do to get ready for next year. I’ll jot down supplies we need, things I need to...

General Homeschooling Plans for Spring 2013

I spent a lot of time over our winter break thinking about what we will cover this spring.
