Homeschool Planning:  12 Weeks at a Time

Homeschool Planning & Prepping: 12 Weeks at a Time

We are a very relaxed and eclectic homeschooling family.  I create the curriculum that my kids use picking and pulling from many different resources.   I find that homeschool planning and prepping 12 weeks at a time works best for us.   My detailed planning and intense prepping can take a lot of time up front but Read More

Our 2017-2018 Homeschool Curriculum
