A successful year looks different for every student, family, and educator but the homeschooling community all share the same goal. Helping students to enjoy their education and get the most out of their learning time. 

We want to provide you with tips, strategies and resources to make this homeschooling year a little easier and help you get the most out of your lessons. 

When we look at a learning environment we often think of creating a visual space that isn’t overstimulating with loud noises and busy decor or underwhelming that lacks life and warmth. Although these are important aspects we also need to consider which learning routines and strategies will have the greatest impact on growth. 

You don’t need to cover every subject every day, use your weekly schedule to make sure you have a good balance between each subject. Set brain breaks and outdoor time in your daily schedule so your child has plenty of time to re-energise throughout the day. Take the summer holidays to create a bird’s-eye view of the concepts to be covered in each term.

Even the most experienced educators take time to reflect on their practice and find room for growth and professional development. An easy strategy is to ask yourself reflection questions. This time can help uncover insights, challenges and opportunities to improve current strategies.

Here are some questions to start with:

  • What strategies or routines worked for your child and provided the results to show this? 
  • What didn’t make the impact you were hoping for or support your child’s learning goals? 
  • What was missing from your toolkit that could have elevated your child’s learning?
  • How do your children feel about their progress?
