Large Family Homeschool Room

This year, I did it.  I set up a real life homeschool room!!  One that should make our lives so much easier. It will mean that my kitchen and dining room tables should not be covered in books all the time.  This room is a small bedroom that has been used as a catch-all and […]

File Boxes with Student Notebooks~Take 3.2 on Workbox Modification

A couple of years ago, I put together File Boxes as modified Workboxes.  That really worked, but somehow, I stopped using them.  The main reason was the work load to keep them loaded and to make sure everything made it back to their spots.  Also, the Hanging File Folders kept falling apart. The first revamping […]

Organizational Week~Getting the Homeschool Ready

We all have them, days when we walk through the house and want to turn tail and run because there are messes everywhere.  As we move through the house, we notice there is very little that can be done with these messes… What? Where did it all come from? Typically around here, it means we […]

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share… ORGANIZE and keep it that way. I am inspired by… Organized […]

Goal Planning Monday~February 28

Again, I will highlight which goals I met, which goals need more work, and which goals, I neglected. Work harder at completing Latin everyday. Sort through more homeschool stuff, and find more stuff to sell off. Work more on blog designs. Remember to exercise Declutter dining room. Listen to sessions during the Heart of the […]

A HUGE Blessing in our Homeschool Records~Homeschool Snips & Tips Wednesday October 20

Over the years, I have wished to have more professional records, or portfolios for our homeschool. I really don’t care that my planning pages are all fill in the blank type, but the what we have done, read, and so forth, I wanted to be more professional. Several years ago, I had purchased Homeschool Tracker […]

Homeschool Planning Got You Buzzing in Dizzy-ing Circles?

Are you being stung by the Planning Bee?  I was there about a month ago, and then I bought a busy bee called The 2010 Schoolhouse Planner.  I have been a super planning bee since. This planner is not like your typical planners.  There are pages of every kind in this planner.  From homeschool planning […]

Weekly Wrap-Up July 4-July 10—Fireworks, Rain, Homeschool, Chiropractor, Van in the Shop, and Garage Sales

Busy week?  No, not too bad.  On Sunday we went to church, then home for Lasagna, naps and rest.  I finished up our weekly homeschool plans, and then we went to take the kids firework shopping.  Back home for supper of pulled pork, and all the goods, and a flag cake.  We then set off […]

From Workboxes to Study Binders—Streamlining the Large Family Homeschool

As a mom of six children, streamlining our home has become a habit.  I constantly look around and try to find ways to make everything flow smoother.  Our house is laid out in a way that is choppy, as in lots of walls, cutting up the “flow” of the floorspace.  I like wide open spaces, […]

Weekend in Review

We really had a slow weekend.  Really we did.  Saturday, I thought, and thought, and then figured out what I wanted to do with our workboxes.  I love them, but I needed to change them.  I needed to be able to load all five days on the weekends.  Yes, I do.  See, I am now […]

First off we will talk about garden workboxes.  […]

Another Large Family Homeschool Organization Tip–More on page protectors in the homeschool

In an effort to streamline some things, I have taken my page protector homeschool, a step further.  I got each of my older children a three ring binder and five page dividers of their own.  Every weekend I fill their binders full of their weekly assignments that are kept in the page protectors.  I use the […]
