Are you new to homeschooling and looking for an easy and successful way to go about it? Are you looking to enjoy some stress free homeschooling and avoid burnout? Are you ready to make a change in the way you homeschool? If you answered yes, you need to check out Successful Homeschooling Made Easy from Stephanie Walmsley and her Successful Homeschooling Made Easy Course!
Although I have been homeschooling for a few years now, I was feeling the need to redo our schedule. I felt that dreaded burnout on the horizon and I didn’t want to have any issues with Moe Man getting ready to enter into his high school years. When I was given the chance to review this course as part of the Schoolhouse Review Crew, I was excited…and a tad bit nervous!
Stephanie has set up this course for us, the parents. Once a week for 26 weeks, we get an email that contains a PDF lesson. You need to make sure you are able to take the time to do your homework with this if you want to be successful! Just like if you want your children to learn something from their lessons, you need to take this seriously if you want to see changes. They do happen!!
Lesson One is the longest (page wise) lesson that I have gotten so far…but you are getting your introduction and setting yourself up for success during this lesson. While you don’t need to, it is recommended to print each lesson and store them in a 3-ring binder. Other than your kids and your homeschooling, those are the only other recommended items to be successful! I have been printing the lessons off, but have yet to get my own binder.
Each week, the lesson is emailed to your inbox…Gmail seems to send mine to the promotions tab, so watch for that if you use Gmail. Once you get the email, you download and print your lesson. Each lesson will go over what Stephanie wants you to slow down and learn about for the week. Once you have read her reasoning and understand what she is saying, she gives you your homework for the week, and she gives you a sneak peek into next week’s lesson.
Lesson one is the most basic, start homeschooling right away, lesson. In fact it is called Start Homeschooling Today. This is the lesson that give you the framework to your new school schedule! You actually make your first schedule in this lesson!
This was something that I have never really done before. I knew what I wanted to accomplish, but never really did a schedule. With the basic setup that Stephanie gives, I now have my first ever Hopkins Homeschool Schedule that we are able to look at each morning and do what needs to be done!
Along with making a schedule during lesson one, we also start our first subject of schooling which is the literacy hour. This is what I love about this program, you start small and know that you will be able to add to this as you move along so you do not burn out right away!
Each week, you will add to this basic foundation you have started. You will work in manageable steps that will not cause you to be stressed or frustrated. Your kids will be happier and you will be happier.
Successful Homeschooling Made Easy has worked wonders for us! We loved taking the step back and slowing down for a moment. Adding things into our new schedule one by one has helped us focus on each subject and work on those important ones that we were forgetting in our rush to get school done!
