getting started with homeschooling
Preschool at Home
There is no better place to begin life's journey of learning than at home! Whether you are homeschooling through high school or just for today, I have ideas, inspiration, and encouragement for you as you explore with your little one. Some days you need some extra encouragement or an activity to suit your specific needs. What better place to start than with a mama who's been there!
The road to reading
Kindergarten and Up!
One of the most daunting tasks for parents in the early years of elementary is teaching their child to read. Let me start off by telling you that there is no wrong way to teach your child to read! Next, let me tell you that there is no age by which a child HAS to know how to read. Take a breath, have a snack, and relax about reading. It will come naturally for a child who loves books! Come along with me, and I'll show you how teaching reading (i.e. phonics) can be simple and low-stress!
It's a lifestyle
Finding your groove
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to homeschooling. You have to find your groove! Take things one step at a time, one day at a time, one minute at a time, and slowly you will find the "school" feel melt away into a comfortable lifestyle of exploration and creativity. There is nothing like sipping a cup of coffee on your front porch while your children squeal with delight over a family of rolly pollies. Find peace in homeschooling along with me as we find what works (and what doesn't!).
