A Strong start for Homeschooling
The success of your homeschooling depends on more than the curriculum you choose. In this workshop, Jennifer explains three precepts to embrace for a strong start that will sustain you through this school year and beyond. This workshop is for new homeschool parents or newer homeschoolers who aren’t yet confident.
Motivate Your Kids with Project-Based Learning
Projects build self-managing skills and give every child a chance to shine. Jennifer will walk you through the process and show you several examples of project-based learning. The advantages of this method are: 1) it uses a variety of learning styles, 2) strengthens executive function, 3) incorporates multiple grade levels, 4) promotes self-directed learning, and 5) utilizes hands-on learning. Projects are worth your time because what your children learn sticks!

Encouragement for the Journey
How to Have Enough Time
This may be the most important class you attend. There are planners for scheduling, tracking chores, and more, so why can’t we get it all done? But this isn’t about another check-off list, it’s about homeschooling in real life. In this workshop, Jennifer, an easily distracted parent, shares realistic, no-guilt principles to keep you afloat.
Don't Judge Tomorrow by What Happens Today
You have a lot going on in your home, and discouragement will happen if you’re not careful. This workshop helps you see the value of what you do, even if things aren’t going as planned. Jennifer encourages you to invest in yourself and your children and to stay aware of influences that don’t have your family’s best interest at heart.
