Military Homeschool Q&A: How To Start, Home of Record, Overseas (Replay)

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

This week, Crystal tackles three questions from military homeschooling families: How do I start homeschooling? Can I use Home of Record to register that we homeschool? Are we able to homeschool when stationed overseas? #podcast #homeschoolpodcastEpisode #25- This week, Crystal tackles the top three questions she receives from military homeschooling families: How do I start homeschooling? Can I use Home of Record to register our homeschool? Are we able to homeschool when stationed overseas?

All three of these frequently asked questions have been answered in more depth on previous podcast episodes. This episode aims to bring all three of these FAQs conveniently together in one place.

Question #1: How do I start homeschooling?

Probably Crystal’s most frequently asked question. Here’s a quick 5-step guide to get you started homeschooling:

  1. Find out the legal requirements for homeschooling in your area.
  2. Research curriculum options.
  3. Devise a flexible homeschool schedule.
  4. Create a support system.
  5. Check out homeschool curriculum fairs and attend a homeschool conference.

Question #2: Can we use Home of Record when declaring (or registering) our homeschool?

The quick answer is, unfortunately, no.

The longer explanation is- You are not able to use Home of Record when registering that you homeschool unless it’s the state where you are actually currently and actively residing. Otherwise, you must use your current address, the locale where you are actually residing for 30 days or more.

 Question #3: Can we homeschool when stationed overseas and how?

Yes, military families may be able to homeschool overseas. However, it’s important to note that the family must be on the sponsor’s orders.

If you and your children are on your sponsor’s orders, and let’s say the sponsor gets orders to Germany. If it’s a country like Germany that has the Status of Forces Agreement, then you can homeschool because the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) has no regulation over homeschooling.

Crystal also touches on two additional questions, so be sure to listen in to this week’s show!

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Boredom Busters | On this episode, Crystal shares a list of five school break boredom busters that homeschool parents and kids will love! Even better- most of these activity ideas will keep your kids learning. | #militaryhomeschoolmoms, #military moms, #homeschool #bordeombusters #boredom #homeschooltips5 School Break Boredom Busters That Homeschoolers Will Love ~ Episode 38

On this episode, Crystal shares a list of five school break boredom busters that homeschool parents and kids will love! Even better- most of these activity ideas will keep your kids learning, but shhh, it’s our secret!

We are quickly approaching the time of the year when public and private schools alike are anticipating Spring Break, with summer soon to follow. Many homeschoolers are also planning their vacation week. While some families plan road trips or visits to amusement parks, others prefer a low-key agenda that includes natural learning opportunities for their children.

Or, you and/or your kiddos may simply be feeling a bit burned out with the normal day-to-day homeschool routine and need something new and different while taking time away from school books and worksheets.

Whatever your reason, if you’re looking for ideas on keeping your kids occupied, you’re in luck! On today’s episode, Crystal shares some great spring break activities that your kids will love. And most of these activity ideas will keep your kids learning, but shhhh it’s our secret!

  • Give those new recipes a try! Need ideas? Try these kid-friendly recipes.
  • Start a garden! It’s really pretty easy! If you need some inspiration, watch this great YouTube video on how to get a simple garden going.
  • Scavenger hunts galore!
    • Color-themed
    • Location-themed
    • Alphabet-themed
    • Easter-themed or other holiday themes
    • If you are looking for more ideas, check out these fun scavenger hunt ideas for kids!
  • Camp out under the stars! In addition to the ones mentioned in the podcast, here are some other family-friendly backyard camping ideas you can enjoy with your kids.
  • Get crafty! Here are some crafty projects, with links, so you can follow the step-by-step instructions and recipes:
    • Homemade slime: This recipe only requires two to three ingredients to make a basic slime, or your kids can make a puffy slime if that’s what they like. This craft is a perfect chance to learn about chemical reactions and how the ingredients interact to create the slime. Note: since this recipe calls for borax, this craft project is better suited for older kids, as they’ll understand that they can’t eat the slime!
    • DIY bird feeders: What to do with those plastic jugs leftover from water and milk? Well, save them for this project! Your kids will enjoy using recycled plastic jugs to make their bird feeders. Once up, your kids will see and learn about all the birds that venture into your yard.
    • Build a bug hotel: Another DIY project you can do using recycled materials mixed with some nature is a bug hotel. Little kids will love the silliness of building a hotel for bugs, all while learning about the different bugs that might want to stay there!

So, there you have it!  My list of five school break boredom busters that homeschool parents and kids will love!  Try them out, and let me know what you think! And if you have any other ideas for keeping the kids busy, please share!

Encouragement for Moms Homeschooling through Military Deployment

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

This week Crystal Niehoff shares some encouragement and inspiration for moms.Episode #28- For the military spouse who is trying to hold the family together on the homefront, deployments are challenging, to say the least. Add homeschooling to the mix, and it can be positively overwhelming. On this episode, Crystal shares encouragement and advice from milspouses who have been there for the mom who is homeschooling while her spouse is deployed.

Homeschooling provides consistency and stability in the midst of military life. Plus, it offers flexibility. Want to travel or relocate temporarily during a deployment? No problem. Your homeschool goes with you wherever you go. Your kids won’t have to change schools, adjust to new teachers, or struggle to make friends with new classmates mid-year.  It also allows your children to be available for those precious moments when dad is able to call or facetime with them, even if it’s after bedtime or during a normal school day. Added bonus- the time spent with your children while your spouse is deployed will bond you all closer together.

But home-educating your kids while solo parenting can be draining and leave you feeling like you’re in survival mode for the nine months or year that your spouse is away.  Listen in to find encouragement and some workable solutions to help you homeschool through the next deployment.

Homeschool Schedule Vs. Routine (Replay)

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Homeschool Schedule Vs. Routine |Episode #41 - In this episode, let’s discuss how to determine the ideal way to plan your homeschool days to ensure success!| #militaryhomeschoolmom#military moms, #homeschooling #Homeschooling ScheduleVS.Routne #Schedule #Routne #ScheduleVS.Routne Homeschool Schedule Vs. Routine

Homeschool Schedule Vs. Routine Episode #41 – In this episode, let’s discuss how to determine the ideal way to plan your homeschool days to ensure success!

Homeschool Schedule Vs. Routine. When it comes to ensuring a productive homeschool day, having some plan in place allows you and your homeschooled students to know what to expect for the day as well as help avoid any unnecessary power struggles when it comes to what activity to do next. Knowing their homeschool plan for the day helps kids avoid asking for electronics during the school day and helps Mom avoid caving into their requests simply because she doesn’t have the next lesson planned or prepped.

Listen in as Crystal discusses which is better for military homeschooling families- schedule or routine- and shares important reminders that flexibility is key. Consistency is vital regardless of what method you choose.

Regardless of what method or combination of methods you use to organize your homeschool schedule. There will be an adjustment period for both you and your children. Lessons may be missed, activities may need to be rescheduled, and you may have to repeat “Check the schedule/ routine!” more times than you would like.

Eventually, everything will seemingly come together, the days will run smoother, and the kids will be more engaged in their lessons than ever. And you will be grateful you took the time to overhaul your days with a consistent and reliable homeschool schedule or routine as you accomplish your homeschool education goals.

Deschooling: What, Why, and How (Replay)

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Listen in to learn more about deschooling as a way to reframe and reset the joy of learning for both you and your child.Episode #22 – On this week’s episode, learn how you can use deschooling to reframe and reset the joy of learning for you and your child.

Deschooling is the process of detaching oneself from traditional schooling methods and structures in order to allow for more creativity, freedom, self-expression, and peace. This is done over a period of time, during which you do little formal school work in order to reset your child’s natural love of learning.

Deschooling can be done in a variety of ways, depending on your needs and preferences as well as the needs of your child.  You may also find that during the deschooling process,  you adjust your understanding of and approach to how your child learns best. During this time, your child isn’t expected to complete worksheets, study from a textbook, or sit to listen to boring lectures. Deschooling is a time of reframing our ideas of how, when, and where learning takes place.

Some ways to deschool:

  • Read to your child often.
  • Play educational board games.
  • Include your children in everyday life.
  • Get outside! Go for walks, hike a nature trail, bike ride, play at the park, go swimming.
  • Attend concerts, plays, art exhibits, and sporting events.
  • Go to the museum, zoo, or aquarium.
  • Make frequent trips to the library.
  • Create or build.
  • Watch documentaries and educational TV shows and videos.

Learning doesn’t require textbooks, worksheets, or a classroom. Learning can happen anywhere, day or night. And the great thing about homeschooling is that we know that our children are always learning! As parent/ teacher we can allow our children the freedom to learn in whatever mode suits them best, even if that means on the couch or floor, standing or moving around, frequent breaks, and incorporating hands-on practice.

On this episode, Lisa Nehring, Director of True North Homeschool Academy, joins Crystal Niehoff to discuss homeschool high school transcripts.

Lisa and her husband, Dr. David Nehring who served in the Air Force, started homeschooling 30 years ago. They started in 1991 and graduated their youngest a year ago this spring. They have five kids ages 19 to 35, and a couple of grandkids who are also homeschooled. Lisa holds an M.A. in Human Development and M.A. in Marriage & Family Therapy. In addition to homeschooling and her work as Director of True North Homeschool Academy, Lisa has worked as an Admissions Counselor, Administrator, Copywriter, Blogger, Academic Adviser, Teacher, Event Planner, and Program Developer.

Homeschool parents often dread the thought of preparing high school transcripts for their high schooler and feel confused about what should be included. In this episode, Lisa shares her years of experience in creating transcripts for her own children and others, details the different types of transcripts and what should be included, and assures us that homeschool high school transcripts don’t need to be complicated or stressful. We can do it!

So, whether your homeschooled high schooler is on a college track, career track, military track, or trade school track, this episode will help you navigate the ins and outs of preparing a high school transcript.

Closing Thought: Crystal then shares this thought in closing which comes from educator, John Holt, “Any child who can spend an hour or two a day, or more if he wants, with adults that he likes, who are interested in the world and like to talk about it, will on most days learn far more from their talk than he would learn in a week of school.”

Teaching Gratitude During the Holiday Season | Replay

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

This week Crystal shares how teaching your kids to have an attitude of gratitude will result in Improved self-esteem, resilience, and empathy.

Episode #27 –  As parents, we love giving our children gifts and seeing their eyes sparkle with delight. But we do our kids a disservice when we fail to teach them the blessing of having a grateful heart. On today’s show, Crystal talks about ways to encourage a grateful heart in your children, not just during the holidays but all year long.

Giving and receiving gifts is a wonderful blessing; however, the Christmas season tends to over-encourage a “gimme” attitude in children, which can lead to a feeling of entitlement rather than gratitude. Teaching your kids to have an attitude of gratitude has many benefits. An article published by The ImagineProject.org lists the following benefits of gratitude: “Greater sense of well-being; improved physical health; improved self-esteem, resilience, and empathy; decreased aggression; increased optimism; improved sleep.”

When we revisit negative thoughts over and over again, we are literally deepening those connective pathways in our brains, making us more prone to think negative thoughts.

The same goes for positive, thankful thoughts. We have to be mindful of where we let our minds go; we’re choosing our future thought patterns. This is why it truly is a gift you give your children when you teach them to be thankful and model gratitude in your own life. Material things come and go, but a grateful attitude is a blessing to everyone.

Ways to Teach Gratitude to Children

  1. Don’t overindulge your children – having too much fosters an attitude of UNgratefulness.
  2. Teach them to say thank you as a matter of habit from an early age. 
  3. Teach them to be grateful for each and every gift they receive or kind deed. 
  4. Teach them to count their blessings. Talk about all the things you’re grateful for as a family. 
  5. Encourage your child to write thank-you notes for gifts they receive.
  6. Have your kids earn money of their own to purchase gifts for family members or create gifts, like ornaments or painting pictures. Let your children give to other children at Christmas time through organizations like Angel Tree, Operation Christmas Child, etc. Many military bases host a version of the Angel Tree for military children.  Let your kids help pick out the gifts, wrap them, and maybe even deliver them.
  7. Serve others through volunteering – this takes the emphasis off of ourselves and puts it on others. 
  8. Grateful parents raise grateful kids. Modeling gratefulness in our own words and actions will go a long way to instilling that character quality in our children. 

Gratitude is a valuable life skill that has many amazing benefits.

It can help children to develop strong relationships, cope with adversity, and feel happier overall. Make sure to model thankfulness in your own life and encourage gratitude in your children. Not just during the holiday season but all year long!

Teaching Subjects You Don’t Know

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Teaching Subjects You Don’t Know | Feeling unqualified to teach your children is normal, especially when faced with a topic or subject you never learned or forgot from your own school days. In this episode, Crystal shares three tips for teaching subjects you don’t know | #militaryhomeschoolmom#militarymoms #homeschooling #TipsHomeschooling #FosteringResiliencewithMorganFarr #FosteringResilience #TeachingSubjectsYouDon’tKnow #TeachingSubjectsTeaching Subjects You Don’t Know

S2, E8 –  Feeling unqualified to teach your kids? Don’t worry, it’s normal! If you’re struggling with a subject you’re not familiar with, check out these helpful tips for teaching subjects you don’t know.

Have you ever wondered if you are genuinely qualified to teach your children? Especially when faced with teaching subject matter that you don’t know. It’s completely normal to question your abilities, even if you have a degree in education. So, what can you do when what your children are learning is outside your expertise? What if you just don’t know what you’re doing?

There is no possible way to know everything you will ever teach your children prior to actually teaching them. You are not a human encyclopedia. Even the best teachers don’t know everything. We all have experiences that master different skills. Like, you may be a whiz at math yet have a child who struggles in that area but is totally into literature or science. What a wonderful thing to have a family that is multi-passionate. One that pursues knowledge in a multitude of subjects. But what a challenge, too.

On this episode, let’s talk about what to do when that happens and how to teach what you do not know.
