Getting Ready to Homeschool

It’s July and that means August is next and that means some of us have school starting soon!

Oh my!

Are you ready?

Are you getting ready?

Are you thinking about homeschooling this year?

With all the crazy things going on around the world and the recommended standards by CDC  for the new school year, many parents are considering homeschool for their kids.

I have been homeschooling my oldest C since he was in the 4th grade. This August he will be in the 6th grade! I can’t believe it! And in addition to that, I will now be homeschooling my second, T and of course, my little one does not want to be left behind so I even bought M her own preschool curriculum.

This year will be a challenge for me with homeschooling all three very different kids.

And if you’re getting ready to homeschool it will be a challenge as well.

But don’t worry, trust me and so many other moms out there…it  is so worth it!

There are so many things to consider when getting ready to homeschool. I you’re reading this in July  you probably already withdrew your child from their regular school and are now on the path to homeschooling.

An important, very important thing to consider when getting ready to homeschool is the curriculum. 

I have done a few different things with my son and will be writing my reviews for the curriculums we’ve tried as we go through them. But I’ve already written some that you may find helpful. 

Check them out below. Keep in mind that these reviews are for the 4th and 5th-grade curriculum and my son is ASD and ADHD (you can read our full story here).

Curriculum reviews I’ve done:

This one is on the time4learning curriculum and I will be starting our with this one for my first grader. He is quite independent and I feel the screen and fun cartoons will keep him engaged and interested.

On of the things that is great about the internet and Pinterest is you can find reviews on almost any curriculum. Check out some of these down below.

Personally I am still working on creating the perfect homeschool schedule (if something like that even exists) but for now we are mostly routine based. As long as our to do list gets done in an order I’m not too strict on time of when we start or finish. But the schedule ideas you can find below may be helpful to you when you’re getting ready to homeschool and looking for ideas.

When I decided to listen to God whispering to me to homeschool my oldest I was so scared. I didn’t think I can do a good job. But what I learned is that with God anything is truly possible. I am not the perfect teacher in any way. But I know that I am my kids best teacher and I am what they need. I know my kids better than anyone and when homeschooling I can teach them the best way that they learn. 

I’ve written a few blog posts on tips and tricks and advice on homeschooling. 

Check them out in the links below.

Just remember mama, you know your child best, you know what they are capable of and what you’re capable of. This new journey will be difficult and yet rewarding. 

You can do this, you got this!
