Setting Academic Goals for Your Children

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

As we are getting into the spring season, you might be looking at plans for your next school year. This is a great time to evaluate where you are with this school year. It is a good time to evaluate your child’s school year.

Have they progressed like you wanted them to?

If not, what area do you need to focus on next year with them?

Did you like the materials you used this year?

If not, write down some things that you would like to see in a curriculum.
You can set goals for each child. They do not all have to be academic, but by knowing some of these, you can better choose books and activities.
  • Academic Goals
  • Spiritual Goals
  • Life Skills
  • Social and/or Community/Church Service
  • Life Goals
In the spring and summer, spend time talking to your spouse, praying, and making some goals. If you have teens, talk to them about their goals and interests. You know what types of things bring your children joy. Find educational ways to make these things a part of your school.

This will help you guide their educational pursuits for the year.

Don’t buy books for the sake of buying books. Be discerning. Whoever has the most books is not necessarily the best homeschooler.

Your Zone Mission for today is to declutter floor of the closet and shoes.

Your Home Blessing for today is to declutter paper and magazines.

My menu plan for Thursday is chicken and veggies.

Have a great day!
