What does homeschool planning look like for you? Have you ever considered that homeschool planning can be fun for the entire family?

I love to involve my children in every part of our homeschooling. From planning to selecting curriculum to buying school supplies and much more.

Since it is their education I believe that it’s important that they have a say in much of what they learn and I want them to understand how much prep goes into a homeschool year.

By allowing my children to learn how to plan, shop and prepare for a new homeschool year I am teaching them many life skills that they’ll need throughout their life.

From organization to budgeting, to planning and dedication, my children are learning more than they realize by being part of the yearly homeschool planning process.

Over the years I’ve worked to make this process fun for my kids. After all, if they aren’t experiencing homeschooling it isn’t really fun for them.

If you’ve never made homeschool planning an entire family event, here are a few things we do to help inspire you! 

10 Ways to Make Homeschool Planning Fun for the Family

  • We purge the school bookshelf and reorganize it when we’re finished planning
  • Each child selects literature for monthly book reports from our extensive library
  • We sort through all of the unused homeschool curriculum we have on hand to select things they’d like to use this year
  • Each child selects online courses from Schoolhouse Teachers
  • We plan weekly and monthly fun and educational activities to do together throughout the year 
  • Each of my kids completes this survey to share what they’d like to learn about this year
  • We sort through all of the unused homeschool curriculum we have on hand to select things they’d like to use this year
  • Together we plan our daily line up and our weekly homeschool schedule
  • The kids picked a school name, mascot, school colors and they designed a school flag
  • We create a school supply shopping list together

I haven’t always allowed my children to help plan our homeschool year, but the last few years as we’ve been moving toward a child led homeschooling method I knew it was an important step to take.

I don’t want my children to feel disconnected from their learning, I want them to be inspired and to truly love learning!

The more our children are actually a part of their entire homeschool journey the more they will enjoy it.

We need to get away from the average school mindset of handing our children their textbooks on the first day of school and teaching from them for 180 days and calling the school year done.

Our children’s education needs to be filled with learning experiences that they’ll never forget!
