Homeschooling Resources

Now, more than ever, parents are switching from the public school education mindset to homeschooling, especially in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. We were fortunate to be able to have homeschooled before the germs hit, so once we were forced to be home, we already had a good schedule to fall back on. Remember, it’s not about packing as much in a 6 hour day as you can. You truly can do what’s necessary (with lots of fun and flexibility) in a 3-4 hour day! The rest of the time can be spent on teaching kids those transferrable skills that are crucial to becoming respectful, well-rounded citizens as adults.

This is an on-going resource page for easy access to what we either used or I have since found to help make the homeschool process easier.

  1. Oak Meadow homeschool curriculum – https://www.oakmeadow.com/
  2. 4 Little Fergusons blog – https://4littlefergusons.wordpress.com/ – I list this blog because Tanya provided many posts about homeschooling, from how she scheduled her four kids to what chores her kids were able to do at certain ages.
  3. Allrecipes.com – this site has lots of recipes for cooking with children and even more that have a range of complexities for cooking without them.
  4. If you live in Vermont, here is the website for the 4H program: https://www.uvm.edu/extension/youth
  5. Udemy has a never-ending selection of courses for children and adults in basically anything you can think of. I’ve signed the kids up for music and language lessons this way. https://www.udemy.com/
  6. Amazon – This is a go-to for me. From pretty much the best prices around to the most widespread offering of products, Amazon is definitely the first choice for purchases.
