Balancing Homeschool and Work Life with Rhonda, Sandy and Sheila

Description & Show Notes

Description & Show Notes

Homeschooling is not the only “job” you have as a mom. Whether you have a full-time job, volunteer for an organization, or have a sideline that takes your time on a regular basis, the stress can add up in a hurry. Balance is the key to successfully pull off the juggling act between work and homeschool. Join these veteran homeschoolers as they help you set goals and establish boundaries that make it possible to do both well.

The ultimate goal is to answer the questions - how do I home school my children without losing my mind or theirs despite all of the other pressures of daily life. This conversation will consist of things to consider and ideas for you to create a functioning home, home school, family life, while working outside the home in some kind of capacity.

Literature-based Homeschooling in High School with Rhonda, Sandy and Sheila

Description & Show Notes

Description & Show Notes

High schoolers are busy people. Education is just one of the many responsibilities on their plate and may not be a priority (in their minds). If your high schooler is already a book lover, then using a literature-based approach to learning will likely resonate with your student. If, however, your high schooler would prefer a root canal over reading a good book, you will have a greater challenge in making the study of literature appealing. Join us as these veteran homeschoolers share the value of literature-based studies for high school and offer some practical tips for engaging a literature-reluctant student.

The Basics of Literature-based Learning with Amy Lykosh

Description & Show Notes

Description & Show Notes

Literature-based learning is an educational philosophy based on children’s natural curiosity and love for stories. With Sonlight, you’ll use these real books in each History / Bible / Literature program to study history, make geography simple (since every place in a story can be located in the context on the map), grow students’ reading ability with the included Readers in each program, increase family connection and learn even more with the fabulous Read-Alouds that you share with your children, teach grammar and other aspects of language arts, using passages you’ve already read.  Why choose a literature-rich education? 

✔ Literature makes learning information enjoyable. 

✔ Literature conveys information in a format that is easy to remember. 

✔ Literature encourages you to interact with your children.  

Because of Sonlight’s outstanding books, your school days become a pleasure instead of a challenge. You’ll end your year feeling deeply satisfied in your soul, not burned out and frustrated.
