Greetings SOIL Family and Friends!
RaShaunda Lugrand here! I AM LOVING the new found inspiration to support various families in their homeschool journey as the first two quarters have passed. I've grown so much as I go back through our material again. So, I really want to make sure that I am present and availible to offer my expertise and creative knowledge in the process of helping other families find their homeschooling sweet spot.
I want you to know that I am not here to sell you any textbooks, worksheets, or curriculum. What I am here to do is, offer you the opportunity to expand your scope as parent and facilitator, of a highly intuitive and observant home educator. Below I share three of our core tips to make your homeschool journey one that is fun and creative by shaping you attitiude regarding what a GOOD education is.
Tip # 1 A Metaphorical Attitude:
Before I can give you the tools to a more fruitful homeschool experience, I have to help you get clear on you attitudes surrounding YOUR individual homeschool model. Completing this task alone, will help you to better understand how to proceed and whether homeschooling is right for you and your family structure.
Tip #2 An Attitude of Excellence:
One of the biggest reasons people fail at homeschooling is because they are too busy competing with standardized goals to facilitate for their seeds homeschool expereince. I am not saying that you should not strive for excellence, but it takes time to really identify with what your seed needs to learn according to their own composition and NOT that of traditional standards.
Tip #3 Your Intentional Attitude:
If it causes you stress, it is because you are not moving with the flow of learning, yet trying to control the process. Taking time to plan out your day, managing your expectations, and completing simple tasks is what sets the intention in motion. If what you are planning isn't convenient to your lifestly, then obsticals will present themselves and you will meet conflict head on. And often times this will get in the way of the real life things that need to be attended to.
In closing, I want to offer you a quick BONUS Trick that I keep in my tool box to make sure that I maintain a peaceful and productive day. Through supporting the natural rhythm of my life, I can get the maximum benefit from my holistic homeschool experience.
Sending Love and Light,
