Thursday Thirteen...Things I have to do to get ready for homeschooling

Thirteen Things about Things I have to do to get ready for homeschooling

1. Organize the kids school shelves so that we can see what we have

2. Buy new pens, pencils, pencil crayons, markers, crayons, notebooks, glue etc...(what have I forgotten?)

3. Go through the curriculum and layout a monthly plan (so we finish what we absolutely have to)

4. Get my registration in for our local homeschool group

5. Double check that I am registered with our weekly homeschool club

6. Make a bucket of fun stuff for Pooky to do while we are schooling (playdough, big crayons, paper and colouring books, puzzles etc...)

7. Get the kids some alarm clocks, we have just woken up whenever in the past, but I think it may be time for a more set-up schedule. Get more done in the morning and play more in the afternoon

8. Go through the math curriculum for Mr. Hockey and make sure I understand it;-)

9. Clean off my desk and set up a record keeping program on my computer

10. Plan some fun outings to enjoy with the kids together

11. Put together a bible devotional program for the big kids laying a foundation of godly characteristics for men and women

12. Schedule time for hubby and I to get together and talk about how things are going

13. Most of all....PRAY that God continues to be at the forefront of our journey this year

  1. wow while I don't know if I could ever homeschool I have always admired those who can!!

    I used to love playing teacher!have fun getting ready for a new year! I always loved the smell of new school supplies too!

  2. I love the smell of the school bus!! ;-) I am so not organized or patient enough to homeschool... yet! Dave just liked the idea of taking Q golfing as a credit for P.E.

    I like the idea of alarm clocks, I've always thought that if I did h.s. - it would have to have a regular schedule.
