A New School Year

Getting Organized:
In Your Home and Homeschool

Dear Friends,

At the end of the spring, I did a series of videos on ending your school year. For 5 days, I decluttered and filed important papers. Several of you have asked for a video to help you get started with your school year.

Today, I will be hosting a Facebook Live Session on The FlyLady’s Page at 2:00 pm Eastern. If you have questions, email me now. You can ask questions during the session, too. It will help me to have some of your questions ahead of time.
The boys and I started school the first week of August. I prepared for the first day of school in the two weeks prior to starting, and we started back by adding a subject at a time. We started with Math and Reading.
This week we will be adding Science and History. I like hands on learning as much as possible for these two subjects. No matter what curriculum I use with the boys, I can add in hands on activities.
For History, we can do projects based on the period of time we are studying. We can add in field trips of interest. They can do a final report each semester. There are many ways to add in hands on learning at any age.
For Science, we use experiments to bring action to what they are reading about. In school, I never really enjoyed science. As a homeschool teacher, I love science, and it is because of the experiments we do.
I use simple composition books for planning purposes. In the past, I have used resources, such as Homeschool Manager. You can try it for free for 30 days.
If you have not closed out your last year of homeschooling, do that this week. You can watch my  decluttering your homeschool videos on YouTube.
This week we are detail cleaning and decluttering in the Main Bathroom and one Extra Room. You can use this time to help you with organizing your homeschool materials.
Your Zone Mission today is to declutter your bathroom counter and wipe it down.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wash sheets.

My menu plan for Monday is Skyline Chili (Cincinnati favorite).

Have a great day!
