Setting Up A Self-Reliance Homeschool Is Probably A Lot Easier Than You Think!

 


Creating a homeschool curriculum that suits both the academic and self-reliance goals of a prepping family is an exciting endeavor. If you thought setting up the homeschool classroom was fun, the thrill of designing the curriculum is going to knock your socks off! Finally, you have control over not just what your child is being taught, but HOW they are going to learn the material.

If you do not have a background in education, setting up a curriculum and making lesson plans understandably may feel like an overwhelming and daunting task.

Once you have the material that covers all the state required and necessary objectives, you can tinker around with it, infusing it with out-of-the seat and hands-on training to make it your own. 


Think of the ready-made curriculum packets and lesson plans as a springboard to guide your efforts and not an end point.

The Homestead Homeschool Difference

The Homestead Homeschool Difference Have you spent countless frustrating hours on the internet looking for homeschool curriculum materials to use when teaching your children? I am willing to bet this year's harvest that you didn't find a single one designed entirely with homesteading and prepper families in mind. Sure, you can find plenty of free printables and how to directions for educational activities on the internet, but then you have to attempt to cobble them together into a comprehensive curriculum program. When you look down at the massive stack of printed worksheets that took you days to weeks to find, it doesn't take long to grasp how closely they resemble the type of work your child would be doing in public school - which is not at all what you intended when making the important decision to homeschool.
