Homeschooling the Pre-K Years

homeschooling Jan 31, 2022

If you have children in preschool age, you are in what I like to call the “thick of it” , the most demanding part of a woman's life. If you also add older children and/or babies to the mix, you are on Defcon 1.

  At any time war can be imminent and you need to be at maximum readiness when physically you could feel the most depleted. In this video I am going to share with you what I did while being pregnant every other year for over a decade. What  works, is enough, is effective without spinning your wheels. The last thing you want to do is spend all your energy digging a hole in the winter when the ground is frozen solid, when you could have just waited until spring when you could have gotten the same result with a lot less effort and time. Before we jump into the tips, just know if you feel overwhelmed, if you feel like you lack support, encouragement, help…you are not alone. 

So if you can relate to any of this, then let’s get...

Teaching Younger Children with the Robinson Curriculum

Does the Robinson Curriculum  require 5 or  6 year olds to have 2 hours of math, 2 hours of phonics and reading and 1 hour of writing?”No! Those study requirements as a goal which each child works toward. Do you get anxiety at the thought of adding homeschooling to the mix, when you feel like you are in the thick of it in a physically and mentally demanding season of life? 

Take a deep breath, and keep calm. Remember you already have been homeschooling from birth and I’m sure have already taught your kids several important life skills, so have confidence that you can also do this too and it doesn’t have to cost much time, money or sanity. So what’s the best way to start formal academic homeschooling to get them working independently that long? In this video I am going to go over the basics of how to start homeschooling and I will share my bias with you up front. Efficiency is doing things correctly, but effectiveness is choosing the right...

How Do You Simplify Homeschooling? Why You Must Keep It Simple.

homeschooling Oct 08, 2021

 

Homeschooling is one of those things that can get expensive, overwhelming, and stressful really fast. Here are some quick reminders why you need to keep things simple and just focus on the acquisition of skills, vs knowledge. Reading, Writing and Arithmetic is enough to build a strong foundation for any future endeavors. 

PLAN ONLY ONE DAY AT A TIME

Do not try to live more than one day at a time. From sunrise to sunrise is a perfect circle. Simply make that day as complete as you can. Glance over the next day's record at nightfall. Take stock of blunders and omissions and during the coming day, set them as nearly right as you can. Take stock of the blenders and omissions, think about the things you did right and wrong.? Then think about how you can make it right the next day and sleep peacefully.

DO NOT FRET

Do not dwell on the fact that you may not accomplish this or that in a year or in the season. Continue adding a little and you will form a great heap. This is...

The Tuttle Twins - TEACHING LIBERTY

"Clearly, our homeschools must teach children about government. This education is complicated by the fact that we have essentially two classes of governments-the ones that Americans have agreed to under the federal Constitution and Bill of Rights, state constitutions, and local charters and the ones that we live under, which are quite different.
Perpetuated by now vast bureaucracies and often unprincipled politicians, these governments have assumed roles that are not specified or permitted by agreement with the people.
This second class-the government we have today-continually spends vast resources “educating” the people with propaganda activities. About which class of government should we teach our children? The practical answer must be both."
 
– Dr. Arthur Robinson
