One of the biggest hesitations people have with homeschooling is this: I would love to homeschool but I am not organized at all! Having an organized homeschool doesn’t have to be complex. In fact, I much prefer the simple to complicated organizing techniques.
I have found that when I keep things simpler, I can accomplish way more with my kids in our homeschool–and with much better quality, too!
When it comes to organizing, I never recommend a copy and paste method from someone else’s ideas. That almost never works. We’re all different and the way we organize is so different too.
But what I do suggest is when you’re struggling to get organized, go do some searching.
See how others are doing things.
Experiment a bit.
When you’ve adapted some ideas to fit your family’s needs, tweak as necessary. Before long, you’ll have developed some ways to stay organized that fit your needs.
To help you get started, I’ve scoured my site and put together a beefy list of ideas to get you on your way of organizing your homeschool.
You can have an organized homeschool.
It might look different than your friend’s homeschool, but you can do it.
Let’s get started.
Helpful Homeschool Planners
First, I always think it’s super helpful to have all your thoughts in one place. I have two planners for this.
One is my main homeschool planner. I keep my ideas, book lists, lesson plans, daily records, and notes in here.
I created and designed my own printable planner that you can find HERE.
