Homeschool Planning Tips

If you want to raise your chances of successfully homeschooling your children, planning is essential. Here are some homeschooling tips to help you:
  • Prepare a study area
    If you can, dedicate a whole room in your house to be their "classroom". If not, create a space in your dining room or living room. Make sure that there's minimal distraction. 
  • Create a goal and devise some motivations
    Create goals first. Determine what it is you want your children (and also yourself) to achieve. Doing so will keep you focused and inspired. With the goals, you will also have a better idea of how and what you want to teach.
  • Schedule
    Life is easier when everyone has a schedule to follow. When planning out your time, consider when in the day you and your children are most productive. Don't teach in the afternoon if you find that you are normally low in energy then. You must find the best time where you can give your best and your children can give you their attention and eagerness.
  • Prepare a budget
    Decide how much you are going to spend on home schooling materials. Many times we get carried away and end up overindulging ourselves with books and materials.
If you're going to homeschool, it is best to have a plan. You can use The 2011-12 Schoolhouse Planner to help you. You'll find forms and organizational tools to help you juggle your homeschooling, chores and maybe even a home business.

There's also the 2011-12 Student Schoolhouse Planners for your kids (kindergarten to high school ages). These planners are available on CD or in E-Book format!
