Let's walk through
the process together.
1. Gather Your Thoughts
As you homeschool, all kinds of ideas and plans come to mind. But you may not be ready to act on them. The scratchpad is a great place to jot them down so you won't forget.
2. Collect Your Resources
As your homeschool library grows and as you find more and more resources online, it can be difficult to remember what you have and where everything is. The Flexible School Schedule resource list can help. Simply enter a video link, website link or book into the list so you always know what you have and where to find it.
3. Layout Your School Year
Plan your year in flexible terms and weeks per term, not rigid dates and times on a calendar. Homeschool life is rarely rigid. Children go at their own pace. Life happens and we need to stop for a day or two. Flexible school schedule allows you to speed up or slow down as needed. You can even stop and just start back up right where you left off.
4. Plan Your Subjects
Focus on each child’s individual needs and pace as you plan what subjects you’ll teach. You can schedule subjects to be taught as many times per week or per term as each child and each subject requires.
5. Record Your Progress
As you progress through the school year, mark each lesson complete when it is done. Enter what you did, when you did it and how long you spent doing it. Progress bars will give you an overview of your child’s progress for the year, the term and on a per subject basis.
6. Report Your Accomplishments
You can create custom reports. Simply select what data you would like to see and click “print” to get beautifully formatted reports that accurately represent your efforts, perfect for your records and to assist with fulfilling state requirements.
