Our drawing for the OCEANetwork Conference ended Sunday. The winner is Donna Hooton! Yay!
I stumbled upon this blog post from 3monkeysthrowingaroundsomepaper which very well explains a way that you can do delight led schooling which I highly recommend and still keep track of what you’re doing. This is especially important if you are in a state that requires documentation. This is also great if you’re a laid back mom like me –someone who doesn’t thrive on schedules and plans.
I see the question often: “How do you plan out your week for homeschooling?”, ” What kind of planner do you use?”, “Do you plan?”, “How to plan for homeschooling”. Here’s my easy answer: I DON’T!!! (anymore) Shocking huh?? Let me explain:
I am not really a plan everything out kinda girl, not in my recreation life, not in our homeschooling (not anymore) . I used to plan. I used to sit for hours and write out every chapter and exercise and reading list we were going to do that week. But honestly, I didn’t like to plan BECAUSE…..if I didn’t finish everything I had planned, it made me feel bad. I feel like we didn’t accomplish anything that week and the panic would set in. But truth be told, we did a lot of learning, just not what I PLANNED on teaching that week. (Click here to read the whole article.)
