Not every Homemaker Homeschools but I do and for those of you who do or are interested in Homeschooling I thought a nice little page with some timely resources might be a good idea.
When it comes to Homeschooling there are so many different methods and ways to go about it!
- I started a post with links explaining some of the different methods out there. Some people stick with one, some use several, some start one way and end up another.
- If your children are little starting off with activity sheets is a great way to get an idea of some of their strengths and lightly introduce yourselves to some schoolwork at home.
- A few years I started a series where I interviewed my fellow homeschoolers from the OldSchoolhouse Review Crew. I think this is wonderful for getting a peek into a homeschool day. Start at the beginning.
What About What Products to Use?
I've been on the Old Schoolhouse Review Crew since 2013. Being part of this crew allows me to test out great homeschool products you might never have heard of. It's easy to find big box curriculum but what if you need a specialized subject that works just for your child? Those are the kinds of things I review. And if you wondering we use BJU Press Homeschool as the core curriculum in our home.
- First of all you'll want to know the requirements for your area. This way you can be on top of things when it comes to picking out and fleshing out your curriculum. HSLDA has list of all the US States and their laws. Consider becoming a member. HSLDA also has an International section.

How Do You Get it All Done?
Yes I've asked myself this question a time or two. Especially when watching my sister homeschool. How on earth do you get it all done? That's where Homemaking Organized comes into play. An Organized Home shouldn't take as long to keep up as a disorganized home.
- First of all be sure and read Homeschoolers at Home Interviews to find out how other homeschoolers “get it all done”.
- One of the best way to get it all done, at least in the home, is to put your home on a schedule. Having a routine of when things are done around the house is super helpful. It doesn't have to be set in stone but having a roadmap keeps you moving forward.
- For homeschoolers new and old I highly recommend the book Flourish: Balance for Homeschool Moms.
Your children are only young for a short while. Do your best to enjoy this homeschool journey.
