Summer went by fast and Back to School is right around the corner. I’m not sure when your school starts, but our kids return to school in just a few short weeks. I have lots of great back-to-school blogs coming up. To start here are some of my favorite must-have posts that will help you prepare for this school year!
Everything you need to prepare for back to school or homeschool
A successful homeschool year starts with early preparation to get the resources you need in time, set up your learning space, and get back into a good school year routine with your kids. These articles will get you starting the new school year off feeling prepared and ready to take on a new year of fun learning!
Homeschool curriculum list – Not sure what curriculum to use for homeschool this year? Finding the right curriculum can be exhausting because you need to find a curriculum your kids will love so they actually want to learn. We use a variety of curriculum resources. I have found my favorite curriculum for different topics and learning styles. I have used many of these for years and my kids love them. Check out my complete list in detail here.
Back to school shopping by store – I definitely don’t buy everything from one store. Although that would be convenient it’s not as affordable. I have found specific items to be cheaper at one store over the other or better quality when that is needed. Use this back-to-school shopping list to help you find school supplies at the best price available.
Supplies that promote learning at home – We use a variety of school supplies that promote learning in our home. One big item is individual planners for each of our kids and one for me. This really helps us stay on track with learning. We also use a few other supplies like a big world map and storage systems to help keep all our school supplies organized. Get my full list here.
Setting up a homeschool workspace – It’s more than a place to study it’s a space that is clutter and distraction-free, one that helps you feel inspired to learn. I love printing out inspirational quotes to hang in each kid’s workspace. This is one of many things we do as we set up our homeschool workspace. For more details read here.
Home school what to buy, what not to buy – There are many things you just don’t need when it comes to school supplies (homeschool or not). Here are a few things I do and don’t recommend based on my experiences of what we use or don’t use for homeschool. It really helps to know what you need and what is not necessary.
