10 Questions. . .by Becky Boerner

A friend of mine is giving a talk at a homeschool group.  I came up with some questions for her.  I thought they might be fun to share.  Maybe you can get together with a friend and talk about the questions, email them to an online friend, or answer one in the comments.  I am hoping they help you remember why what you are doing is good.

1. What is going well in your home-school right now?

2. What is one thing you would like to change mid-year?

3. What has your student learned since the beginning of this year? It is easy to forgot about progress when you are bogged down in the day to day.

4. Have you saved a work sample? Thought about end of the year assessments? (had to throw that in)

5. What do you love about homeschooling? Why are you glad you homeschool?

6. What about homeschooling RIGHT now is never going to happen again? Your kids will never be this age again. You might never get to hold a baby and homeschool again. You might not get to teach anyone else to read. . etc. Hold onto that moment and treasure it. . journal it. .photograph it.

7.  What is the best read-aloud you have read to your kids this year?

8. What field trip and/or activity was awesome?  Everyone did something wonderful.

9. What do you do that gives you life? If nothing. . maybe make it a goal to find something and do it.

10. What is the best book you have read personally?
