Happy New Year, friends! In this podcast I talk about ways of planning or “unplanning” our homeschool goals for a new year.
My 4 basic tips for setting homeschool goals this year:
- Start with a dose prayer. Prayer is conversation with God and is easy.
- Start with a plan, or plan not to plan. Don’t worry- I explain this all in the podcast! 🙂
- Process not perfection. It’s not about being perfect, but enjoying the journey.
- Explore, experience, and connect. Taking time to enjoy the journey is most important, not rushing through our days.

And by the way, this week’s awesome sponsor is Phonics Museum by Veritas Press. If you have kids that are learning to read, be sure to check out the Phonics Museum app (you’ll get a 2-week free trial) and pick up your freebies (an ebook, an activity book, and a printable activity for emerging readers). You can also scroll below to the bottom of this post to view their video and find out more about Phonics Museum.
Although my kids are older, I downloaded this app and had my 10-year-old check it out. She says she wishes she’d had something like this to help her learn to read in an interactive and engaging way when she was younger!
