Last month I shared five reasons to consider starting or joining a homeschool co-op at Today’s Frugal Mom. This month, I’m sharing five steps to start a homeschool co-op based on my experience this past school year launching and managing a girls book club with a handful of moms and daughters from our local homeschool group.
Whatever the form, homeschool co-ops are very useful for enriching your homeschool plans with additional academic and social learning opportunities. I’ve enjoyed being a part of organized co-ops, and I never intended to start a homeschool co-op myself. However, as I’ve shared in the past, I felt like something was missing from our enrichment activities, and the girls book club filled that gap for us.
Join me at Today’s Frugal Mom, where you will find my complete post on those details: Five Steps to Start a Homeschool Co-Op. Based on my experience, I share the steps I took to take our girls book club from an idea into a reality. Our book club co-op has been a blessing in so many ways for my three daughters and our homeschooling mission. I believe that when God is calling families to come together for His purposes, He truly makes provision for all the details.
Here’s a look back at our journey with the girls book club this past year:
