Homeschool Questions

If you are a new, or even seasoned homeschool parent, there are inevitably questions that plague go through your mind. I’ll admit there have been some nights I’ve lost sleep while turning over answers in my head.

  • Am I doing enough with my children?
  • What do my kids need to know?
  • I have little ones too – how am I supposed to balance all of it?
  • Where in the world do I get started?
  • Do I have to schedule – and how to I figure out where to begin?
  • Are we expected to eat AND keep up with school?
  • What am I going to do with this high schooler?
  • Can I even do this?
  • (and the list goes on and on…right?)

Homeschooling can be overwhelming. You don’t even have to be a first year homeschooler to realize that! But do you know what is wonderful? There are so many resources and supports available to help us navigate the years and endless questions.

The Omnibus

Once a year, the iHomeschoolNetwork shares the Homeschool Omnibus as a one week special – and THIS week, from August 3rd through the 9th, is your week to take advantage of the savings and resources for just $25. Inside you will find some very helpful resources, no matter what stage of homeschooling you are in. Below I’ve highlighted over $80 of homeschool helps to consider.

Homeschooling 101

Homeschooling 101 Resources

Instead of just one, there are THREE ebooks (from Confessions of a Homeschooler, Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers, Mrs. Hutchinson, and Misty Bailey). Each of these ladies offers a unique perspective and insight on various homeschool questions, and these books are a great place to start for answers! All are included in the Omnibus.

Creating a Schedule that Works

Scheduling Tools

Have questions on how to figure out a day-to-day schedule? This ebook from Marlene Griffith with printable worksheets will help you break your day down into bite-sized pieces and create a working schedule. ($5.00)

The planner I personally use is also included, and includes month at a glance sheets, weekly planning pages, room for meal planning, and scheduling life in general! The planning calendar runs from July 2015 through December 2016. ($3.99)

Included in the Omnibus.

Planning Tools for Busy Moms

From-Frazzled-to-Focused-COVER-sm

It really is possible to have a peaceful and balanced life (I promise). Mary Jo Tate has some great tips in her ebook From Frazzled to Focused along with customizalbe planning forms to help you figure out your priorities and what to take action on in your life. ($3.99)

Included in the Omnibus.

What Your Child Needs to Know When

what your child needs to know when

One of the biggest questions we ask as homeschool parents is “Am I doing enough? This book answer this question and even includes academic evaluations along with checklists for grades K-8. ($24.95)

Included in the Omnibus.

Planning Your Homeschool Day

If you need a homeschool planner, the Weekly Homeschool Planner is one you can use year after year. It is an editable and reusable pdf file that you can save to your desktop, add in your lesson plans, and either view it on your desktop or print off if you need a physical copy. ($20.00)

Included in the Omnibus.

The above resources are valued at over $80, but this week each one of them is included in the Omnibus for just $25. (I may have mentioned that a few times prior).  While I’ve only highlighted a few of the ones I know would be helpful in answering some of the questions I’ve had over the years, I would encourage you to read on!

    Hey Jolanthe, good morning! this is seriously so off topic but wanted to tell you how much my 11 year old is enjoying the mysterious benedict society, she is not putting it down. I will take a photo, if possible and send to you. she has finished off the underland series by suzanne collins and now almost done with this. I asked you this once before and not sure if you replied but will ask again. I am wondering if I should borrow the audio or the book of lemony snicket from the library. How do you play the audio books at home? Do I need to buy a CD player? even my laptop does not have a cd thing any more. only my car does and we dont go out much…. In any case, thank you for the suggestions, my daughter absolutely loves these, being such a hard core harry potter and percy Jackson fan , she was reluctant to start any other series… also my shift key does not work, therefore no upper case in my comment…

    • That’s so exciting, Padma! I love it when our kids get so engrossed in a book that they can’t stop! We loved the audio books because of the person reading most of them (Tim Curry), but we actually own the entire series now as well, so borrowing either from the library would be great. We are typically in the car to listen to most of the books, but otherwise the kids will pop them in their CD player (we only have one in the house that works). When we picked up one for the boys, it was around $12 at Walmart and they use it constantly, especially during our daily ‘quiet time’.
