Hi! Welcome to This Crazy Homeschool Life.
My name is Lesli. I’m an educator and have been a homeschool parent for about a decade. You can read more about my family and me here.
We are having an absolute blast on our homeschool adventure, and we want you and your family to rock this homeschool life.
The best way to rock homeschooling? Give your school a strong, firm homeschool foundation, then blast off on the coolest adventure of your lives!
To get started, begin with How to Start Your Homeschool in 5 Easy Steps. This article will be the foundation for everything that comes next in your homeschool adventure.
Next, you’ll need to read An Overview of Homeschool Methods. This article discusses the different methods and philosophies behind homeschooling. Deciding on the method you’ll tend (emphasis on tend! Rarely will any family be totally committed to a single hs method!) towards in your homeschool is very important for your next step.
What’s your next step? It’s writing your family’s unique homeschool mission and vision. Your homeschool mission is the cornerstone you’re building this whole endeavor on. It’s your why. Your vision is your how and what your day to day looks like. Visit the links for easy instructions on how to write these important statements. This is the most important step to your homeschool foundation.
Once you’ve laid the first level of your foundation, it’s time to get to the fun stuff! It’s time to break out the catalogs, books, and Google to find the right curriculums for your family. Read all about how to choose your homeschool curriculum here.
Now that you’ve found your curriculum, you’ll need to plan out how to use it. Sometimes the idea of planning out your curriculum can sound completely daunting. We’ve simplified it down to a single annual activity for you here.
That’s it! You’ve built the homeschool foundation for a strong educational experience for your family. Where do you go from here? Well, now you can go ANYWHERE! The world is your classroom and you get to live, breathe, eat, and enjoy learning about this cool world we get to live on.
Build Your Community
Now, who are you going to do life with on this amazing journey? That’s where building your community comes into play. We’ve got some ideas to help you create a strong village to walk through your adventure with you.
If you’d like to grow your online homeschool community, visit the Crazy Homeschool Instagram page. We post daily (or as close to it as possible with this life we lead!) encouragement, information, and homeschool fun!
Enrich Your Experience
We also have some other ideas for planning, learning, and evaluation for your homeschool days.
