Welcome to the February 20th edition of the Homeschool Mother’s Journal at NextGen Homeschool!
We are featuring a theme of the week on a monthly rotating basis to help you select which posts you’d like to share on the link-up. These themes are suggested: If you have something on your heart that you really want to share, feel free! However, if you haven’t posted anything new, you can still participate each week by choosing a post from the past that fits the week’s theme.
Every week, we share your posts on our Homeschool Mother’s Journal Pinterest board and Facebook page, and we tweet them out to our audience as well. We will be using the hashtag #homeschoolmothersjournal when we share your posts on our social media channels, and we invite you to use this hashtag as you post throughout the week as well — especially if you tweet or use Instagram to share. We will search for new posts using #homeschoolmothersjournal and share them with our followers as well!
We’d love to see YOU post questions and interact with other moms in our Homeschool Mother’s Journal community when you’re on social media.
“What I’m Learning” Post from NextGen Homeschool: How Do You Wear Both Hats as Mother & Teacher?
Do you struggle with how to balance your roles as both mother and teacher when you’re homeschooling? NextGen Homeschool Author Rosanna Ward shares how she’s grown in this area by taking a holistic view of her multifaceted role of homeschooling mom. Read her story.
This week’s featured posts are two “What’s Working” journal entries that give us an inside look into the organization systems that help these homeschooling mamas stay on top of things:
- Naturally Organized – Not! by Kym Thorpe at Homeschool Coffee Break. I think many of us can identify with not feeling organized, especially when it comes to homeschooling paperwork and lesson plans. Kym shares her tried-and-true systems for planning, scheduling and helping your children stay on top of their own assignments.
- Weekly Wrap Up – Half of February is Gone! (with Homeschool Planning Video) by Melissa at GC Homeschool. Melissa walks you through her weekly homeschool planning process step by step with this visual tutorial.
Now join us by sharing your “What I’m Learning” blog posts below and reading what other homeschooling mamas are sharing this week!
