Why a Morning Basket: Pam Barnhill joins me on today's podcast to talk about how to manage your life while homeschoolingWhy a Morning Basket

Pam Barnhill joins me on today’s podcast to talk about how to manage your life while homeschooling

Pam, Jamie Martin and Colleen Kessler have all joined forces to create a program called, Homeschooling with Purpose

  1. Cast a vision
  2. Calm the chaos
  3. Create a lifestyle of learning in your home

Which is great, because it gives homeschoolers the tools they need to manage all of their lives, not just the educational piece. Like Pam says, manage the laundry- it’s never a surprise.

Pam is also probably best known for Your Morning Basket. Pam draws a distinction between Unit Studies and Morning Baskets and says Morning Baskets are when they cover everything from memory work to Internet Safety and are distinctly different than a unit study.

Some of the Barnhill’s favorite Morning baskets have focused on the Election, Finance and Folk Songs.

Pam uses a Trello Board to manage their Morning Baskets.

Pam is also a big proponent of Memory work, and learning memory work by songs and hymns.
