November in The Homeschool Alliance

November in the Alliance: Ages & Stages
November in The Homeschool Alliance is all about the ages and stages of growth in our children! Turns out that the physical, social, and emotional development of our kids are completely entwined with their academic development.

Join us as we explore what a holistic approach to education that honors your uniquely developing child could look like.

We’ll delve into questions such as:

  • In a standards-based world, how do we hold space for our individual child?
  • Is there such a thing as an “average” child?
  • How can we learn to look past expectations and embrace our children where they are?

What you can expect in November:

  • Two webinars: One focusing on the 12-and-under set and—by popular demand—one all about teens
  • Readings and discussions that get you thinking
  • One Thing “Flames of Light” Challenge to do with your kids
  • Weekly self-care reminders (because you count too)
  • Welcoming and supportive community

November in the Alliance: Ages & Stages

The Homeschool Alliance is a fantastic way to grow as a home educator in all the ways you really care about—deeper engagement with learning, membership in a community of like-hearted home educators, and the space to reconnect with what drew you to homeschooling in the first place.

Give us a try in November! You can join anytime and leave anytime. We will support you as we hash out parenting, learning, and living this lifestyle we call homeschooling.

October in the Homeschool Alliance: Rethink Motivation

Who among us hasn’t worried at times about our kids’ motivation?

If your days sometime feel like a struggle to pull your kid through the learning process, then October in the The Homeschool Alliance is for you! Join us as we “Rethink Motivation” and explore how we can let go of our fears for our kids and utilize their own inherent interests and desires to help them become engaged in the world around them.

We’ll explore ideas from Gretchen Rubin’s new book, The Four Tendencies, to gain insights into our kids and consider the myriad of other factors that come into play when it comes to motivation. Learn how you can work with your children to get things done, instead of feeling as if you are constantly working against them. Who knows? Maybe you’ll even learn a little bit about yourself in the process!

Our live webinars are great fun and a wonderful opportunity to ask all your specific questions about your particular kids.

Join us in October! You can join any time and leave any time. We will support you as we hash out parenting, learning, and living this lifestyle we call homeschooling.

Welcome Jeanne Faulconer to the Homeschool Alliance!

Introducing New Homeschool Alliance Coach Jeanne Faulconer

As the Homeschool Alliance heads into our third year and continues to grow, we are excited to welcome a new coach to the Homeschool Alliance—Jeanne Faulconer!

Jeanne brings a wealth of experience with her. In addition to her 20 years experience homeschooling her three grown boys, she has been a huge resource and support for homeschool families, as a popular writer, speaker, and as a homeschool evaluator in Virginia where she gets to see up close just how many unique ways there are for homeschooling to work in each family.

Jeanne believes that engagement is a key to learning, and that has led to two deceptively simple rules for homeschooling:

  1. Do what works.
  2. Stop doing what doesn’t work.

Needless to say, we are thrilled that she will be sharing her special knack for seeing ways to nurture the natural learning and curiosity that our homeschooled kids bring to the table.

You can learn more about Jeanne at her website, EngagedHomeschooling and through her writing at TheHomeSchoolMom.

Join us in September! You can join any time and leave any time. We will support you as we hash out parenting, learning, and living this lifestyle we call homeschooling.

The first order of business in any homeschool is making sure our kids’ brains are firing on all cylinders!

During the month of September we’re going to implement tactics that “make thinking visible.”

You’ll love it!

Also, we’re introducing a brand new coach! I’ll keep it secret until September, but needless to say she is a GEM and someone who will be an enormous resource to each of you!

August 2017 in The Homeschool Alliance

Guess what? I am here to help you have a great school year. Seriously! I want you to feel supported, loved, helped, and encouraged. Consider me your “cheerleader” in all things parenting and homeschooling.

As you get ready to enter into your homeschool year, it’s easy to focus on academics, projects, and schedules. Let’s flip the script! How about starting with your child? Let’s imagine the world from behind the eyes of your kids, first, and then look at how you can bring your adult objectives to life.

Stephanie (the other Homeschool Alliance coach) and I love to lead webinars and offer support through our private classroom.
