Simple Organization for Homeschools
Tips for Getting and Staying Organized While Homeschooling
Bethany S. LaShell
Simple Organization for Homeschools is completely geared towards homeschooling families, since many books on home organization already exist. Examples, forms, resources, and practical suggestions make this a must-have reference book for all homeschoolers.
This book guides Christian homeschool parents in completely organizing their homeschools. Organization brings peace, balance, and the ability for true academic learning to a homeschool. Biblical encouragement for order in our homes is included along the way, verses such as I Corinthians 14:40, "But all things should be done decently and in order," (ESV). In addition, each chapter or section is tied together with a unifying, biblical theme.
The first part of organizing a homeschool is choosing a style and curricula that not only fit your family's lifestyle, but that also fits each child. Then you need to learn how to schedule and use your time effectively. After that, you're ready to get to the good stuff: why, where, and how to set up a schoolroom, how to store supplies efficiently, and how to keep the paper piles under control.
This book encourages you to make organizational choices that work with your family's style. I've tried many different methods and styles, but what works for me won't necessarily work you. Simple Organization for Homeschools will help you to organize one piece of the homeschooling puzzle at a time in a way that makes sense for you with the different tried-and-true choices I present.
