Top 3 Homeschooling Tips for September

These three homeschooling tips from mom-of-four (boys!) and 9-year veteran homeschool teacher will help you start the year well.

They’re all here, in this super fast video.


Homeschool Tip #1:

You do you. This is YOUR journey. Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, the blogosphere, ebooks and more all have great ideas. But I give you freedom right now to do what works for your family.

Homeschool Tip #2:

Build and maintain a love of learning. For my family, this means we have to ease into the year. (Refer to homeschool tip #1 . . . this may or may not be crucial for your family.)

Homeschool Tip #3:

February sucks. Plan for it. (Seriously, if you don’t believe me, do a quick search for “Homeschooling in February.” I personally like this blog post about it.)

Planner Template
