Relax and listen to this sweet tune as you ponder last year and plan for next year. Catch the light, upbeat feeling and feel the hope for a successful year in all the right ways.

Looking back on last year and assessing how it went is a good thing to do before planning next year’s homeschool.

When I look back on the year, some of the things I check for may surprise you.

These are some of the questions I ask myself to assess how well our homeschool year went:

  1. Did you spend time together as a family?
  2. Did your kids learn how to be more kind and considerate?
  3. Did your kids become more mature and less selfish?
  4. Did you get to know your children?
  5. Did they get to know you?
  6. Did you make memories?
  7. Did you enjoy the year?
  8. Did the kids enjoy the year?
  9. Did they make progress in important academic skills?
  10. Did your kids learn life skills such as cooking, cleaning, building, fixing things, and problem solving?
The best kind of homeschooling. Family spending time together and having fun. Making memories. Experiencing new things. Being outside together. Talking to each other. Sharing an adventure. This is Family Schooling! Photo by Daiga Ellaby on Unsplash
.

Even in a relaxed homeschool or in unschooling, I cover the main academic subjects. But I will not do them in a schoolish sort of way.

I will use methods that are more hands-on and interactive. And I will measure each activity to ascertain if it will really add to necessary knowledge or skills. And I will take into account the learning style and interests of each child. I don’t make them spend hours doing “school”. I let them learn many things naturally and use teachable moments profusely.

As you can see by the questions I use to determine the success of our homeschool year, I put more value and emphasis on personal development, character building, and relationship skills.

This is how I measure the success of our homeschool year.

So, considering the questions I posed above, Did You Have a Successful Homeschool Year?

Here’s the video I made about this topic!

Psalm 107:30 Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and He brought them to their desired haven.

Praying for you and your success,
