How Do You Homeschool Series - Coming Soon as we go Back to School on Homeschool Coffee Break @

The start of a new homeschool year is just around the corner for us and I'm alternately excited and a little sad - because this is our last homeschool year. Many homeschoolers are already back at the books, and I'd guess almost all of us have some of those mixed feelings. 

Not only mixed feelings, but we've all got questions, right? No matter how long we've been homeschooling, we are curious about how other homeschoolers do things. And homeschoolers who are newer to the game obviously have lots of questions! I thought it would be fun to start a series that answers some of the questions homeschoolers ask each other. Questions about how we handle some of the little details and about our opinions on things like book reports and labs. Questions that we all might answer differently because what works great in one family might not work at all in another. 

A few of the questions that I (and perhaps some fellow bloggers) are thinking about responding to:

Do you give letter grades? Do you give report cards?

What time do you start in the morning? Do you make your kids get up at the same time every day?

How many hours per day do you spend on school?

Do your kids help around the house during their school day?

How do you fit museums and field trips into your studies?

Do your kids have bad attitudes about school? How do you handle that?

Can homeschoolers get the discounts offered to school groups or to teachers?

We've started collecting quite the varied list of questions! Do you have any questions related to homeschooling that you're curious about? Leave a comment and let me know!

I'll be kicking off this series by answering some Back to Homeschool questions next week in the 5 Days of Homeschool Encouragement Blog Hop hosted by the Homeschool Review Crew, and then I'm planning to share answers weekly starting in September.

Id like to know about homeschool grants of funds. I saw some parents from California stating they get $$ to put towards educational items. Im in Texas and haven't heard of this for my state, but would like to know if theres any funding or help I can get. Also how do you officially make your school a private one to get teacher discounts? Also can you send in boxtips for your homeschool?

I am also interested in how do highschool transcripts and diplomas work, as well as, what electives are parents giving their highschooler.

Thanks for your questions! I will look for someone to help with your first couple of questions about funding. And I'll address transcripts, diplomas, and electives at some point. You can find some info about transcripts and electives here on my blog - try the "From the High School Lesson Book" or "high school" labels in the sidebar; or the Homeschooling High School Blog Hop 2015 button.
