20+ Tips for a Great Homeschooling Year

I’ve always loved Back-to-School time. When I was a student, I loved school and looked forward to the start every year. (Plus, who doesn’t enjoy buying new school supplies?!) When I was a classroom teacher, Back-to-School was a time to decorate my classroom and look forward to meeting new kids. And as a homeschool mom, even when we schooled year round, Back-to School is when we transition to a new year of homeschooling. We get new curricula in the mail. I start new lesson plans. The whole new year stretches out in front of us. It’s exciting!

But, I have to admit that, occasionally, the start of a new homeschool year has been a little scary too. When we transition to a new season of homeschooling, we can feel a little anxious when Back-to-School time rolls around. Whether you’re a new homeschooler or you’ve been homeschooling a few years or you’re a veteran homeschooler, we can all need a little inspiration and encouragement sometimes.
