Before you put everything away, let’s assess your past homeschool year (& use that as a brainstorming tool to imagine your upcoming homeschool year). Here is a tool to do just that! These journal questions can aid in greater satisfaction in your upcoming homeschool.
Every year I finish the homeschool year kinda lackluster.
And you know what? I’m good with that.
I recognize it for what it is: a season.
Because, seriously, what are the chances I’m gonna love every dang minute of this homeschool thing?
And when else would I feel homeschool fatigue? At the end of the homeschool year!
(Oh, and February, cause ya know: slump month. Oh, and usually about year two or three of our homeschool journey when I need to have a giant shift from “how I thought homeschool would be” to “how homeschool actually is”… And also at the end of April/beginning of May EVERY year. Anywho, I digress…)
By the end of May, I usually close the homeschool room door & don’t return till early July. (Weirdly, I haven’t actually spent a lot of time in that room, cause we homeschool everywhere else in the house).
I let stuff sit. Close up the books. Close up the planner. And just shift into a season of being outdoors.
And you know what we all need after that point? A chance to recollect our ideas about last year, check what works, check what didn’t, and springboard into the new year with ideas that did work and new ideas I want to include.
If you’re there and you want to springboard too, you can use the Reimagine your Homeschool Workbook!
You’re at the end of your homeschool year and you’re ready to put everything away: the books, the science experiments, the random markers & erasers hidden in your sofa.
But wait! Before you put everything away, let’s assess our past homeschool year (& use that as a brainstorming tool to imagine your upcoming homeschool year).
Here is a tool to do just that!
Get out your pen and dig deep into the following questions.
In the Reimagine your Homeschool Workbook, you’ll assess…
- your past year’s activities with your homeschool vision
- your homeschool curriculum/resources
- your homeschool routine
- kindergarten entry ideas
- high school entry ideas
- your homeschool philosophy
- your homeschool challenges & create an attack plan
- your intention and how you show up on purpose in your homeschool (& life)
These journal questions can aid in greater satisfaction in your upcoming homeschool.
You can dig deep and build the homeschool that you really want in your home!
Are you wrapping up your homeschool year?
It’s the time of year we assess our past homeschool year (& use that as a brainstorming tool to imagine our upcoming homeschool year).
I invite you to a year-end assessment.
We’ll do this together in the Homeschool Year-End Review…
Assess & clarify our homeschools, the intention of our homeschools & the practical activities in our homeschools…
…so they can become more of what we want our homeschool life to be.
What we’ll do…
A year-end homeschool assessment:
- to align your actual activities with your homeschool vision
- to assess your homeschool curriculum, if you want to do all the things, but you need to focus on a few for an easy, fun routine
- to assess your homeschool routine
- to help those entering kindergarten and have no idea where to start
- to help those entering high school and are at a loss in making curriculum choices
- to assess your homeschool philosophy (& ask if it’s working for you?)
- to simplify your homeschool
- to tackle your real homeschool challenges & create an attack plan
- to encourage you to show up on purpose in your homeschool (& life)
- to address your real homeschool kids, so you can create an individualized home education
- to encourage you to keep on going in your homeschool (& life)
Bring your journals and a pen, without the kids.
- You’ll receive personal feedback and the Journaling Workbook for you to consider afterward.
