What you actually need to homeschool during a school closure.
Due to the recent coronavirus outbreak and subsequent school closings, I have been seeing more advice than ever about how to homeschool, how to set up a routine for your child, and countless ideas for fun activities at home.
As a homeschooling mom myself, I can appreciate the spirit behind these articles, and many of them share helpful resources and information. However, if I were a non-homeschooling mom, I could understand how this onslaught of advice combined with the stresses and worries of dealing with coronavirus could easily become more than you could bear to deal with.
Parents everywhere are being thrown into a homeschool lifestyle without any warning or preparation. Adjusting to homeschooling under the best of circumstances can be a challenge, so I can understand how this can feel like a total whirlwind. My goal is not to throw even MORE resource lists at you, but rather, to help you explore the world of home education with confidence and grace.
This video/audio lesson is going to talk about what you actually need to educate your kids at home. I’ll give you a hint before we start: homeschool success isn’t based on which curriculum you use or how rigid your routine is. In reality, your homeschooling mindset is what will make the biggest difference.
This lesson was created for the Homestead Crash Course Summit, in an effort to help families working to be more self-sufficient during the coronavirus outbreak. If you are here from the summit, welcome! Be sure to grab your free copy of the Top 10 Homeschooling FAQs.
