The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas: Finances, Traditions, and GIVEAWAYS

Hello my sweet blog readers, it’s been a while, but I’m back to say hi and let you know I’m still here. Life has gotten a bit crazy for me lately (ever been there?), and I’ll post about that later. But when I heard that I would have the opportunity to offer you a deal on The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas AND let you know why I chose to participate in writing this book, AND do a giveaway, I had to get in on it. Because you know I love good deals and I love homeschooling!

The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas: Finances, Traditions, and GIVEAWAYS

First of all, I authored a couple of chapters for The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas because I want to help others on their homeschool journeys. And I wrote about a couple of topics that I am particularly passionate about – finances and capturing memories. 

Making the First Day of Homeschool Special

We all see those first day of school pictures all over Facebook and Pinterest every year for those kids going back to traditional school. But starting homeschool (for the first time and every year) should be a special day for homeschool kids too! I love making traditions of simple things we can do year after year. This helps our children, and us moms, develop fond memories of our homeschool years. In my chapter in The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas, I share ideas for simple and easy things you can do to make the first day of homeschool special. Check it out and be inspired! You may even find some things you want to do now, even though your school year has already begun. It’s not too late to begin fun traditions with your kids!

How to Make a Homeschool Budget and Stick To It!

Managing finances well is a topic close to my heart. And for our family, as well as  many others, managing finances well is closely tied to homeschooling. We are able to homeschool because we have been on a budget and managed our finances well for years. Had we not started The Dave Ramsey financial plan years ago, our family would not have the option to homeschool. So I am passionate about helping others with their finances. My chapter in The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas about budgets walks you through how to create a homeschool budget and stick to it. It’s not as hard or scary as it sounds. Just take baby steps and commit to it and you can do it!

Giveaway

I’ve decided to give away a copy of Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover AND The Graduate’s Survival Guide. These are fantastic resources to help you on your financial journey. And if you have an up and coming graduate, you want them to start out with sound financial decisions.

Back to Homeschool – How We Celebrate

Back to Homeschool - How we celebrate

Back to Homeschool – How We Celebrate

It’s hard to miss all those back to school photos of kids going back to school the first day. Just because we homeschool doesn’t mean we don’t participate in back to school, or “not” back to school traditions too. I believe celebrating the days of our lives in fun ways will be something our kids will gladly remember. I know I will! I already enjoy looking back at first day of school photos of my kids from the last few years and remembering the good times we have had.

This post contains affiliate links, which means if you purchase something as a result of clicking on one of these links, I may make a small commission at no additional charge to you. Thank you for your support of this site!

There are tons of ways to make the first day back to school a special day for you and your children.

Here’s what we do:

Back to School Photos

You know you see them all over Facebook and Pinterest. People posting photos of their kids on the first day back to school. We do it pretty simply. We take our chalkboard and write the year on it and take our photos holding it. I usually try to get in at least one photo with the kids so I drag out my tripod. That usually means we end up making silly photos too! back to school photo

New School Supplies

Everyone loves new school supplies, right? And this time of year there are awesome deals on back to school supplies. I set out each of the kids’ new supplies on their desks for them to find first thing in the morning. I like to get them new supplies that are fun and inspire their creativity. new school supplies  new school supplies

Fun Treats

We had ice cream for breakfast on our first day of school. My kids were totally surprised smoothies for snack and thrilled to find out we were having ice cream. Then for our mid-morning snack, we made smoothies to pack back in some nutrition that we missed with breakfast. I let the kids decide what they wanted to put in the smoothies. They turned out yummy!

Fun Activities

Firecracker loves science and wants to do it everyday. We were studying wind on our first day of school so we made some little kites for them to play with out of supplies we have around the house. Simple. Fun. I made sure to do plenty of fun artsy-craftsy and science-y fun stuff the first week. We can’t always do as much as we’d like to, but I wanted us to start the year off having lots of fun with each other.

first day fun

Student Interview

I like to mark the passage of time with a student interview. I always find out some interesting facts about my kids. When I interviewed Firecracker on our first day, he told me that he wants to learn Japanese. And his self-portrait was of himself as a ninja. The Japanese – I had no idea. The ninja – I wasn’t surprised.  Download and print out my free student interview printable.

Enjoy your first day back to school! Be intentional about it; your kids are worth it!

Homeschool Room Tour

HOmeschool Room Tour Homeschool Room Tour

It’s always interesting to find out “where” homeschoolers actually “do” school. In our family, we strive to have a life filled with learning opportunities. So essentially we try to teach our kids everywhere we go. But that doesn’t mean we don’t need a place for us to call home – for our homeschool – so to speak.

Our first year of homeschooling, we did not have a dedicated room or space for our homeschool. We did our schoolwork primarily on the kitchen table and our books and supplies ended up everywhere. Everyday I had to pack up all our school stuff and move it somewhere else so I could put dinner on the table. It ended up in stacks and bunches here and there. I tried to keep most of it in a nearby closet, but it just got so messy that I never wanted to pull anything out. The un-organization (is that even a word?) of it drove me crazy!! I get all stressed just thinking about it.

So after our first year of all that, we transformed our bonus/storage room into our homeschool room. And it has been such a blessing to us! We know how fortunate we are to have this space. I know not everyone has a room they can dedicate to homeschooling. But whatever space you have, I suggest organizing it wisely so you won’t go all crazy with the books and stuff everywhere!

Our homeschool room has different spaces. We have a preschooler space, a bigger kid space, a teacher space, craft and storage spaces, and places for reading. Plus a big bonus is the open floor area where we have room for my kinesthetic learners to move around.

Preschooler Space

Preschooler Space

 

In the area for my preschooler, I have:

  • a small desk that has a chalkboard inside (an updated desk that used to be my husband’s when he was little!)
  • a book case that holds books, preschool toys and puzzles, coloring and activity books, and blocks - from IKEA
  • a pegboard for her crayons, markers, and scissors (see below for details on the pegboard)

Big Kid Space

Bigger Kid Space

My bigger kid has the following in his space:

  • a desk with drawers for papers, science tools, drawing supplies, and more – from IKEA
  • a book case for books and learning games - from IKEA
  • a pegboard for holding his markers, pens, pencils, scissors, glue, and crayons (see below for details on pegboard)
  • an extra chair at his desk so I can sit with him for our seat work lessons
  • lots of artwork hanging on the ceiling – his idea! I came into the school room one day and found all this artwork hanging and he was so proud of it! Although it made my inner must-have-it-neat-and-organized self cringe a bit, I do not have the heart to take it down. I love that he wants to express himself creatively!
  • All our scripture from the past year is on note cards on the wall by his desk.
  • You may notice the line on the white slanted ceiling above his desk. That is our timeline that goes from one end of the room to the other. It’s just a piece of yarn that I have tacked on the wall and we add our timeline pieces to it as we study them.
Pegboard Organizer

I got our black plastic pegboards from The Home Depot. They are very similar to this Bulldog Hardware Peg-A-System Pegboard Panel Kit from Amazon. I used some pegboard hooks I found in our garage to hang their buckets on that hold their crayons, glue, markers, scissors, pens, and pencils. The hooks that we use to hold their scissors are made for holding screwdrivers. You can find all kinds of neat pegboard hooks/accessories like this Pegboard Hook Assortment kit. You can also find baskets like this Wire Mesh Basket that could be really useful. I have found it to be a versatile way to organize little items that need to stay easily accessible.

Teacher Space

teacher space

In my area, I have:

  • My desk and storage cabinet – from IKEA
  • Refurbished bookcase where I keep all our current curriculum and books/games/cards/etc that I am planning to use this year. I try to keep the kids out of my area, so that I can keep things there that are fresh to them when I pull them out.
  • I keep Ladybug’s sensory boxes by my desk. She would have those out all day long with rice and beans all over the floor if I would let her.
  • I have a Sony iPod Docking Station with CD Player and Radio that we just love having in our school room. It was on my school-room wish list and the hubs got it for me last year for Christmas. We listen to audio books, CDs, music on the iPod, and the radio while we are in school. Love it! (And in every space will be my dog if I’m anywhere nearby. My family calls him my shadow.) 

Craft Space

Craft supply storage

I got this cabinet with the drawers in it from a yard sale last year. It is perfect for keeping our craft supplies in. But my 3 year old, who is quiet as a ninja, likes to get the paints, glitter, and glue out without asking permission and I’ve had to clean all that up too many times. So, to limit her access, the hubs just got me a little lock to put it on.

Ultimately, I’d like to move this all to a closet and use this space for those rain gutter bookshelves. A girl can dream, right? Those are on my homeschool room wish list. Ahhhh, that’s a post for another day…

Reading Spaces

HS room

We have a lightweight kids couch that I found on Craigslist that we use when we are reading together. We also have a big round chair that the kids sit in while reading. Or we just sit on the floor, or read on the couch in the living room, or in the car, or outside. We like to read everywhere! Reading is certainly not limited to our school room.

When I was designing our school room, I spent hours and hours on Pinterest looking for ideas. I compiled a list of 20 Inspiring Pinterest Boards for Designing & Organizing Homeschool Spaces that you must drool over look at if you are looking for inspiration for your homeschool space.

Start the Year With a Student Interview {Free Printable}

Who I Am - An Interview for Homeschool Students

Start The School Year with a Student Interview

The school year is just beginning for lots of families. Mark the passage of time with a student interview and you may also find out some interesting facts about your kids. When I interviewed Firecracker today, he told me that he wants to learn Japanese. And his self-portrait was of himself as a ninja. Oh bless…

Anyway, you can include your students’ interview as part of their portfolio for the year or add it to your scrapbook. It will serve as a reminder of who they are right at this point in their life. I like to interview my children at the beginning of the school year and then again at the end. It is interesting to see how their thoughts and opinions change over time. And it’s a great way to get to know them! They may answer the questions in ways you don’t expect!

I’ve created a printable that you can use to interview your students. There is one sheet of questions that you can use to interview your students with a second blank page for them to draw a self-portrait. For your younger children, you can ask the questions and write in the answers for them. For your older children, you can give them the questions and have them write out their own answers and/or use this as an essay prompt.

I’m all about documenting my children’s lives. It’s one of my pieces of advice to new homeschool moms, because our children are growing up so quickly, and I don’t want all the good things to be forgotten. I know you don’t either.

Use this interview sheet as a way to capture some precious memories of your children. Enjoy!

Please leave friendly comments below. Do you have an annual beginning of year tradition with your students? If so, what?

5 Lessons Learned Through Homeschooling and Unemployment

5 Things I've learned about homeschooling and unemployment

Our family has just come through a period of unemployment. My hope for you is that you never have to experience it, however… there are worse things in life. You can recover from this. So if you find yourself homeschooling and your bread-winner is unemployed, I hope these bits of insight from my experience help you through it.

And if you aren’t going through a period of income loss, these life lessons may be just what you need to hear today to motivate you to get your financial house in order.

Homeschoolers, one of my fears during our period of unemployment was that I would have to go back to work, and we would no longer be able to homeschool our children. If we had not had an emergency plan in place, that would have been a certainty from the get-go of this whole thing. I see this opportunity to homeschool as a blessing as I’m sure you do too. So protect it by getting your finances in order so that should an emergency arise in your family, you will be able to continue homeschooling.

5 Lessons Learned Through Homeschooling and Unemployment

1 – Men and Women View Things Differently

Okay, we all know this right? But especially when it comes to money, men and women see things from different perspectives. My husband and I are a good balance for each other. But it takes intention and practice to try to see things from the other person’s point of view. We have been through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University and welcome each other’s point of view. Make sure you are open and honest with your spouse about your finances and are sensitive to their feelings and opinions. You each bring something valuable to the discussion.

In his book, Total Money Makeover, Dave Ramsey writes:

“Somewhere down inside the typical lady is a ‘security gland’ and when financial stress enters the scene, that gland will spasm. This spasmodic gland will affect your wife in ways you can’t always predict.”

That totally describes me. Luckily my husband is well versed on the Financial Peace course and he recognizes this behavior from me when he sees it. whew!

Mothers, in particular, often find their purpose in caring for their family – whether they work outside the home, work part time, stay at home, or whatever. Their “job” or “income” doesn’t define them the way it does for a man.

So what about the men? They are born to be protectors and providers.  God has created them this way. I’m not saying all men embrace this role. But for the homeschool family who is dealing with unemployment of the main bread-winner (usually the husband), it is important for the wife to understand that her husband is dealing with different emotions and a different kind of loss than she may expect. Although their job should not be their identity, providing for their family is a huge part of their identify.

If you want some guidance in getting your financial house in order, I highly recommend The Total Money Makeover: Classic Edition: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness by Dave Ramsey. And no matter what your situation, recognize that your spouse has different concerns, fears, needs, and responsibilities when it comes to your finances.

2 – Transition Period

It’s pretty obvious there will be a transition period for your spouse if they become unemployed. But recognize that your children will go through transition periods also. They will be thrilled that Daddy is spending more time at home, but it may take some time for them (and you) to adjust to doing school when Daddy is at home.

And when Daddy goes back to work, look for behavior and attitude changes that may be the result of him not being around as much. Kids thrive on consistency. And the changes in their routine and structure will take some adjustment. Be sensitive to their needs and give them some time to adjust to their new normal.

3 – Support Structure

Seek out people to provide emotional and prayer support to both you and your spouse. Look for people who have experienced unemployment who understand what you are going through and can give solid advice on getting through it. As with anything, guidance from someone who has experienced what you are going through is meaningful, helpful, and often more valid than what someone else can offer.

Many homeschool families rely on the income of one spouse. Although losing one income in a two-income family can be just as painful, the affects on the family are different. But support from any friends who have experienced job loss is encouraging and grounding.

4 – Want vs. Need becomes Need vs. Need Right Now

When making decisions about our finances, we often ask the question, “is this something we want or need?” And when there is no money coming in, we are careful not to indulge on things we want but don’t need. However, during unemployment, we began asking a new question, “is this something we need right now?” We have a list of things that we need, but don’t need right now. We know the priority of those things and will tackle them when we can.

Depending on the ages of your children, consider having discussions with them about want vs. need vs. need right now. Having this discussion with your kids helps them see that you and your spouse are focused on providing necessities for the family, and helps them think through the best use of resources.

5 – The Best Things in Life Really Are Free

Getting to spend extra time together as a family was a blessing for us. We knew the time would not last forever and were able to cherish the extra time we had together.

Find ways to enjoy time together as a family that doesn’t cause you any extra expense.

  • Dancing, laughing, singing
  • Enjoying the outdoors – going on hikes, biking, etc.
  • Reading books – the library is a wonderful, free resource
  • Church events

The best things in life really are free. Love. God. Family. Grace. Peace. Laughter. Sunshine. Rain. 

Please don’t let the stress of losing an income keep you from enjoying your family time. Seek God and use this time wisely. There is a reason and purpose for what you are going through.

My prayer is that this post is helpful to you and that you will be blessed as you continue to homeschool through this difficult time.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 NIV

How To Prepare for Life’s Financial Emergencies

Because incomes are never certain forever, I encourage everyone to get on a plan to financial peace to prepare for an uncertain future. We never saw this period of unemployment coming, but we were prepared for an emergency because of the Dave Ramsey plan. Get The Total Money Makeover: Classic Edition: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness by Dave Ramsey and get started on baby steps to financial peace so that your family is prepared when an emergency hits.
Financial peace is possible, but you’ve got to get on a plan!

Let’s talk about it. Are you prepared (or preparing) for a financial emergency? Please leave comments below.
