    College prep skills are beneficial for every homeschooled student, regardless of their future career path.

  • This is the second episode in a mini-series about helping your gifted learner thrive in your homeschool.

    It can be a challenge to motivate gifted learners for a variety of reasons. And sometimes those reasons are complicated.

    For example, when my daughter is afraid, she wants to escape reality by jumping into a good book. When a situation is challenging, she prefers to learn a new Rubik’s cube algorithm instead of tackling the tough problem.

    Neither reading a book nor learning an algorithm is a bad thing, but it becomes a problem when it interferes with what she is supposed to be doing.

    In this episode, I'll share five strategies I use to motivate my gifted learner in our homeschool.

  • Every time I tried to create a homeschool calendar for our upcoming year I ended up frustrated. I had read about various scheduling models to create a homeschool calendar, but none of them work for us.

    Finally, I had two epiphanies that allowed me to let go of the rules and think outside the box so I could create a homeschool calendar that actually worked for our life instead of trying to fit our life into a school calendar. After all, that’s one of the blessings we love about homeschooling—the flexibility it offers us.

    In this episode, I'll explain how I create our homeschool calendar. You'll learn:

    About homeschool calendar options. How to break your school year into terms. Factors to consider when determining your homeschool calendar. How to create your homeschool calendar. Tips for adjusting to a non-traditional school calendar.

  • The use of virtual meetings has skyrocketed!

    And no wonder. Virtual meetings allow us to connect with others literally all around the globe. You can practice speaking Spanish with someone in South America, play a game with a friend in Europe, and participate in a book club with friends from many different states.

    But how you can use virtual meetings in your homeschool? Beyond the obvious answer of taking an online class, there are lots of fun and creative ways you can utilize this technology.

    And the best part is that it doesn’t have to be complicated at all! You can keep it simple.

    Or, if you are feeling a little more tech-savvy and want to get even more creative, the sky’s the limit.

    This might even spark a lifelong interest in technology-related endeavors for one of your children.

    In this episode, we'll discuss these 10 ways to use virtual meetings in your homeschool Invite a grandparent to class Host a book club Learn about geography or nature of where a friend lives Practice a foreign language Take a class Create a living history of a grandparent or older friend Watch science experiment demonstrations Have your child read to a grandparent Host a recitation night Have them narrate to a grandparent In this episode, you'll learn The definition of socialized, and how knowing that definition changes our perspective of how we can socialize.

  • Just because you are stuck at home doesn’t mean you can’t socialize and connect with others.

    It does mean you need to get a little creative though!

    You won’t need a bunch of supplies or tons of time to prepare. These suggestions are meant to be quick and easy ways you can connect with others from home.

    We’ve used these suggestions when

    We had a premie baby at home and needed to stay home to keep her healthy. Someone was sick and we couldn’t leave the house. We’ve been on an extended trip. Bad weather or other circumstances canceled events and gatherings.

    Regardless of why you are stuck at home, these suggestions can help you stay connected with those you love.

  • Do you remember when you were first considering homeschooling?

    I do! My husband and I had so many questions!

    SO.MANY!

    Thankfully, we found websites and books we could read and currently homeschooling parents to whom we could ask questions. I am so grateful for how patient and grace-filled they were in answering our myriad of questions.

    Now, the tables are turned. After homeschooling for 10 years, we have been privileged to answer many questions from parents who are considering homeschooling and trying to decide if it’s a good fit for their family.

    And I’ve learned a few things.

    Sometimes I think the answer to a question is obvious because I have knowledge about the situation they don’t have. Their question is a legitimate question, and I need to be careful to answer it in a way that they feel heard and valued. Homeschooling is not a good fit for every family. As much as it has blessed my family, some families benefit from a different education option. And that’s okay! Every homeschool is unique so there is no one right answer for how families should approach homeschooling. It’s okay if they decide to do something a little different in their homeschool than we do. That’s the beauty of homeschooling.

    In this episode of the podcast, my goal is to equip you so you can answer questions parents might have about homeschooling.

    In this episode, we'll discuss How to answer the questions families have when they are deciding if homeschooling would be a good fit for them. Why you should be patient. Remember that you once asked very similar questions! How to help them customize their homeschool. Why homeschooling is not a good fit for every family. The first step they need to take is to join HSLDA!

  • As much as I enjoyed creating episodes of the All in a Homeschool Day podcast, I fell into a rut. I wasn't sure how God wanted me to serve you and what podcast episodes would be most helpful for you.

    So I took a break.

    It was much needed!

    Now, five months later, I have clarity about my mission at Triumphant Learning and the All in a Homeschool Day podcast. I also have a renewed vigor about creating episodes for you. I didn't realize how much I missed recording these episodes until I sat down to record the first one. I felt giddy like a schoolgirl on Christmas morning!

    If you're new to the podcast, welcome!

    If you've been a loyal listener for a little while or from the beginning, welcome back!

    In this episode, you'll learn The story of how we began our homeschool journey, and the excuse I gave as to why I couldn't homeschool. What my husband thought about homeschooling in the beginning. The reasons why we started homeschooling and why we homeschool now. My favorite book, and why I love it. The mission of Triumphant Learning.
