||CleanS4E11: Homeschool Math Curriculum||Homeschool Math curriculum has never ceased to amaze me, both in good and bad ways. There is SO. MUCH. OUT. THERE. At my most recent flip through of homeschool books I even saw a math curriculum built around horses (say what?!?!?! don’t ask me what it was, I don’t remember, but it exists!). I get [...]||9/24/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS4E10: When They are Behind Part 2||Truth bomb: not every child learns at the same rate. Individual development, interests, learning challenges, and personality all play in to the pace that learning happens! Society takes the highs and lows of our children’s intelligence and draws an arbitrary line in the middle that is “normal”. But it really isn’t normal for anyone, it’s [...]||9/17/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS4E9: Help! I'm Not Ready! *REVISED||I love fall, I love the start of school, I love the smell of new books and the neatly organized books on the shelves. It is a blank slate of possibilities, another chance to do things differently. And yet this year as I look in my sty of a school room, where books are haphazardly [...]||9/5/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS4E8: Minimalist Homeschooling (Part 1)||Minimalist homeschooling is a term that can have such a range of meaning that we’re going to, for the sake of time and sanity, consider it a rabbit hole. For one person it might mean cutting back for another it might mean using no curriculum at all! There are extremes and endless variances, but that [...]||8/20/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS4E7: How to Actually Like Homeschooling||Homeschooling can be daunting, overwhelming, challenging, and wonderful all at the same time. Sometimes we become so bogged down (especially this time of year) with curriculum that we neglect to plan out how that is going to look in practise. In today’s podcast episode, we dive into your homeschool day. I share 6 practical tips [...]||8/13/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS4E6: JUST a Homeschool Mom||It never ceases to amaze me how we view ourselves through the lens of the labels affixed to us. Over time, perhaps a combination of repetition and acceptance, we limit the scope of who we are. We begin to believe that how we are viewed and described or what we DO defines us. And while [...]||8/8/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS4E5: My Biggest Homeschool Struggle||Have you noticed that people don’t like to talk about their homeschool struggles? It’s like somehow it makes us look weak or not-sufficient or it gives homeschooling a bad name. We all sit in our houses trying to do our best and it can be pretty lonely if you don’t have someone that you can [...]||6/25/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS4E4: What you Need to Know Before Buying Curriculum||It’s curriculum buying season and the number one question on everybody’s mind is: “What should I choose?” I talk a lot about curriculum on my blog but today I wanted to specifically address what we need to know and how we can create a brief, big-picture “plan” of our days to help us identify, before [...]||6/18/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS4E3: When They're Falling Behind||Falling behind… this is a little bit of an undercurrent in the homeschool world. It exists, but it is clearly not talked about. There are supposed to be three camps in homeschooling: the gifted children, the struggling children, and the average children. Clearly the average children are still above average because of the simple fact [...]||6/11/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS4E2: Planning Your Homeschool Year||Planning is one of my favourite topics to write about because I LOVE LOVE LOVE planning. I love pulling out my planner (together with it’s partner in crime, coffee), the feel of the soft leather in my hands and the weight of all my dreams and vision and goals carried within the pages. I love [...]||6/4/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
