The three styles I will describe today are a scripted homeschool schedule, a child-led […]
Okay, so you have decided to homeschool. Now what? Good news! Homeschooling is very flexible. As you get started with a yearly plan, you get to decide when you hold your school days, how many days a week you plan to homeschool, and what types of “extras” you want to include in your school plans.
Are you ready to jump in to homeschooling? Awesome! You have to know that as soon as someone asks me a question about how to begin homeschooling, I am inwardly jumping up and down.
