How To Stay Sane With Kids Home Full-Time

Hey, homeschoolers!

I have been at home with my kids full-time for 23 years. It wasn’t what I wanted at first and I’ve had my share of challenges, but now I’m so grateful for the time I’ve had. If you’re a homeschooler whose kids are now home from outside classes and activities because of sheltering in or you’re new to having your kids home from school, this episode is for you. I want to share simple tips that will have you not just surviving but thriving with your kids home full-time.

Before we begin, I want to invite you to participate in the Intentional Homeschool Conference online on April 25th. This unique homeschool conference is entirely focused on planning your ideal homeschool year in a way that works for YOUR family. Along with other veteran homeschoolers, I’ll be presenting hands-on sessions that will help you not just take notes but apply what you learn in real time. I’ll also be there to help answer your questions about planning, curriculum, and parenting. Take advantage of early-bird pricing now!

    I write to offer your listeners free Montessori tools and techniques that reduce stress and improve learning at home.

    Education leader Larry Shiller, who authored the award-winning Montessori-based ShillerLearning math and language arts curricula that thousands of homeschoolers use and rave about, is making his Fractions available free for your subscribers.

    With Fractions, parents get lessons, printable manipulatives, and songs that will have kids begging to do their homework. Parents – even those unfamiliar with Montessori – will learn and use valuable tips including:
    • “In our home, we _____” and other powerful Montessori phrases
    • “This is, Show me, What is”: The Montessori 3-period lesson that melts away learning anxiety – for both parent and children
    • How to build a solid foundation by incorporating sound, touch, and movement into lesson plans
    • The 2Cs and 4 Lesson Outcomes: The secret to how kids learn

    The link to the free Fractions Kit for 5-12 -year-olds is here: https://www.shillerlearning.com/bloglink/pc_hssanity. It’s Larry’s gift to you and your subscribers to use and share now.

    Warm regards,
    Marilyn
