A Mr. Rogers Approach to Homeschooling

Hey, homeschoolers! I watched the movie A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, about Mr. Rogers and his relationship with a journalist who was sent to interview him. The movie was the sponsor of this podcast. It is rated PG and is a drama that is not fast-paced. For that reason, I think young children would be bored. However, I highly recommend it for you as a homeschooler. It is available for streaming now and I would love for you to watch it to get the most out of this podcast episode. Sponsor Speaking of sponsors, I want to thank my sponsor for this episode: FabuLingua. Helping your child learn a second language, especially when you don’t speak it, can seem intimidating! The vocabulary lists, the grammar drills… there’s a better way. The magic of children’s stories makes it fun and easy for your child to learn a second language like Spanish. The most important factor in learning a new language is how much ‘input’ of that new language gets absorbed. It doesn’t have to be perfectly understood – just comprehensible. That’s where FabuLingua comes in. Their app provides a huge amount of written and spoken ‘comprehensible input’ through beautiful, interactive children’s stories. FabuLingua was created for families who are seeking a convenient, effective tool to support their language learning goals – in a fun and effortless way. FabuLingua kids don’t ask to ‘learn’ with the app – they ask to ‘play’ with it! Their mission is to make it fun and accessible to children, so that learning another language is something they are excited to do! New stories are released each month and you can explore your first story free. Look for FabuLingua on the App Store or Google Play Store. That’s F-A-B-U-L-I-N-G-U-A. FabuLingua – magical stories that teach kids Spanish.

How To End Procrastination In Your Homeschool

Hey, homeschoolers! Are you someone who never does today what you can put off until tomorrow? Or do you have a student who’s a procrastinator? If so, you’ll love this episode! I interview Barb Raveling, retired homeschool mom and author of the new book, Freedom From Procrastination. Podcast Sponsor Before we go to the interview, I want to tell you about A Year of Living Productively, the sponsor for this episode. I tested more than 80 different approaches to improve my productivity. It took me years, but it doesn’t have to take you that long to create a productivity approach that works for you. You can try a free sample just for homeschool moms here. End Procrastination in Your Homeschool In the podcast, I asked Barb: What are the negative effects of a habit of putting things off? How has procrastination affected you personally? What does the Bible have to say about it? (Check out her website for procrastination Bible verses) What are some strategies we can teach our kids for overcoming procrastination? (You’ll love these!) http://www.homeschoolsanity.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/End-Procrastination-IG-video.mp4 I previously interviewed Barb about truth journaling and overeating as homeschooling moms. Be sure to listen to those episodes too. Barb’s book Freedom From Procrastination is not directed to teens, but I think it would be very comfortable for a teen to work through it. I’ve been doing the Bible study and so far I love it! I’ll see you next time for another installment of the Trust Project. Have a happy homeschool week!

How To Avoid Drill & Kill In Teaching Language Arts

Hey homeschoolers! If your students doesn’t enjoy some aspects of language arts, whether that is reading, spelling, vocabulary, grammar, or writing, there is a good chance you have succumbed to the age old approach of drill. Drilling means that we repeat the same exercises over and over in an effort to help our students master a subject. Unfortunately drilling is responsible for killing many students’ enthusiasm for language arts. I will explain how we can help our kids learn language arts without dangerous drilling in the podcast. But first I would love to invite you to join my Grammar Galaxy email list. Every month I will send your student a calendar of fun and quick language arts exercises to complete. Your student will do short reading, short vocabulary exercises, will play fun grammar games, and will use some fun writing prompts. Much of the calendar is seasonal and is it is a great thing to add to your morning basket time. I want to thank my sponsor for this episode: the Overcomer movie.

And we’re only on week 13!  Who knew a middle schooler would ask if we could still do school on our 5th day because he wanted to find out what happens next in the books we’re reading? Also, I’ve been amazed at how much I’ve learned through reading along with them. Oh, and the 4-day schedule is perfect. We use our 5th day to catch up or just for fun field trips, experiments, and messy art projects.” Amber is right! BookShark’s fully planned, 4-day homeschool curriculum flexes to match your busy lifestyle.

How To Trust God With Your Homeschool Success

Hey, homeschoolers! It’s time for another installment of the Trust Project. This month we will focus on trusting God with our success–success in our homeschools, parenting, work, business, ministry, and more. I’m excited about this focus. But before we jump in, I want to share two things with you. First, I want to give you a sneak peek at something I’m working on to help you have success in living the Organized Homeschool Life. I’ve written the book that gives you 15-minute missions to organize your life all year. Some moms take the book and enjoy success with it alone. Others wonder how to fit even 15-minute missions into their days. That’s why I created the Organized Homeschool Life planner. You take a few minutes to plan every important thing into your day–your time with God, your dinner, your relationship focus, your priority tasks, and even a reward for a day well spent. But there are some moms who tell me they want me to come home with them and their book and planner and help them get organized. I really wish I could because I know if we worked together to implement a few simple organizing strategies, your life would be transformed. You’d be living the organized homeschool life this year! I’m working on a way for us to work together to make that happen. I’m so excited about it because it incorporates everything I know about life change and being a busy homeschool mom. I’m calling it Organized Homeschool LIVE. If you want more details as soon as they’re available, join the waitlist.

Get Dressed for Homeschool Success

Hey, homeschoolers! I am so excited about this episode. We aren’t going to talk parenting or academics. We’re going to talk about you. You are so important to your homeschool. You may think I’m going to talk about you getting enough sleep, the right nutrition, and exercise–and all those things are important. But today my guest and I are going to talk about the importance of fashion for homeschool moms. I discovered the power of looking pretty to give me energy, improve my mood, and make me a better teacher and mom, all as a result of my guest’s influence. I’ll introduce her in a bit, but first I would love to invite you to join me at the Great Homeschool Conventions in Fort Worth and Greenville, South Carolina. Register at GreatHomeschoolConventions.com and then stop to say hi at the Grammar Galaxy Books booth. Or join me in one of my sessions! I can’t wait to meet you. Fashion for Homeschool Moms I was so looking forward to interviewing Alison Lumbatis. She is a wife, mom of three, and founder of Get Your Pretty On. She’s a jeans and tee kind of girl who loves spending time with her family and exploring the best places to eat in Dallas, TX. She is an accidental minimalist when it comes to fashion and style, mixing her tried and true closet staples with a few seasonal trends. Alison’s goal is to help all women feel pretty by being the go-to resource for inclusive style inspiration and beauty advice. I know you will love her like I do! Alison and I discussed: Alison’s time as a homeschooling mom the benefits of wearing something pretty what influenced Alison to care more about what she was wearing women’s objections to putting a pretty wardrobe together Alison’s encouragment to women who are wary of wardrobe building I am an affiliate for Get Your Pretty On. I can’t stop talking about it to my friends and family.  You will love getting dressed for homeschool success!
