A Virtual View Into Our Homeschool Day

I remember my first few years homeschooling, how I was always second guessing myself. I wasn’t sure that I was doing the right thing, I had no idea how to structure my day. There were so many curriculums to choose from. Were my children ever going to be able to read? Was I really capable of teaching them at home? By myself? I had a big beautiful room dedicated to school time and I thought we had to spend hours in there every single day or I was surely failing. My how things have changed.

Thankfully we are now over 6 ¬†years in and I am beginning to see some of the fruits of my labor. Let me be clear, I don’t have all the answers and I don’t pretend to think that it will be smooth sailing. However, I do have some wisdom I would love to share with you to encourage you along the journey.

Virtual View on Thursday

As a Classical Conversations Director I have been asked so many times what each day looks like at home and how to implement certain curriculums. This Thursday night at 7:00 PM MST, I will be sharing just that. I happen to live in a small farming community about 45 minutes from my actual campus. Since it is such a hike for several of my families I decided to do a live stream of the night. I know many of you have been following me on this journey for several years so I thought I would invite you as well. It will be a fun night with real moms with me to ask questions as well as a way for you to ask questions as well.

I will be streaming inside my private Facebook group for my blog called Mommy Secrets Insiders. Simply submit a join request and you will have access to the stream on Thursday.

The Schedule for the Night

I have lots of things to cover, so we may or may not get to all of it. However, here is what I have planned:

  1. Saxon math – I have Saxon 1 – Saxon 6/7 available to see and I will be sharing how I simplify this program to make it more time friendly for multiple young children needing assistance
  2. Spell to Write and Read – This is a curriculum I have heard raves about from the start but I always felt that it was a little intimidating. I finally bought it this year and I was right. It takes quite a bit to fully feel confident. However, thanks to some practice and a few conversations with a trainer I feel pretty confident with it now and will be sharing how to get started. I will also share why I think this curriculum is the best for busy moms with several children of varying abilities and ages.
  3. Foundations/Essentials at home – what does this look like practically? I plan on sharing some of my favorite ways to make reviewing the memory work fun and when/where I fit this into my day. I bet you will be surprised!

That’s it! I look forward to an encouraging evening on Thursday night! Let me know if there is anything specific you would like for me to cover that i haven’t mentioned above!
