I’ve got to say, that homeschool planning is a huge topic to try to tackle in thirty minutes — which probably explains why this video runs over a bit. Mystie, Chelli and I do get a chance to discuss planning a number of different layers of a homeschool year, though.
The very cool thing about participating in such a chat is that I gather all kind of fabulous ideas that I never think about on my own. Chelli had told me she did not make homeschool goals, but the guiding principles she shared that she created for her homeschool are genius, and in some ways even more helpful than SMART goals.
Another thing that the hangout emphasizes is the flexibility of homeschooling, and how it is so easy for families to make it work in their own best interest. It gives us the chance to do what is best for our family. Nothing better than that.
Please excuse our technical difficulties. We were experiencing some problems caused by the weather. I don’t think you will be sorry if you press on and watch through to the end. If you can’t see the video below, you can find it on YouTube. Enjoy!
