Back to Homeschool Prep for the Best Start to the Year

Sharing is caring!

This post is sponsored by the Back to School promotion at Publix. The opinions and text are all mine.

So, you’re homeschooling but it’s back to school time. Does that mean you don’t need supplies? Nope! Even when we are homeschoolers, we still need back to school supplies. And especially since we are hybrid homeschoolers, we definitely need all of the back to school supplies! So how do homeschool moms get back to homeschool ready? Check out my top 4 tips for the best start to the school year yet!

2. Create a Healthy Learning Environment at Home

Whether you are a homeschooler or a traditional learner, it’s very important to have an environment that’s prepped and ready for learning. Kids need a space that is conducive to homework and learning. Having the supplies ready, a peaceful setting, comfortable seating and enough space really help kids have the best chance for success. Take some time before the school year starts to prep a healthy learning space at home!

3. Organize clothes, shoes, and books for Back to Homeschool

When you’re starting a new school year, mornings can be hard to get used to. So take time now, before those early mornings start, to get as many things ready as possible. Create some outfits that you know will work for school. Check everything from the shoes to the hair accessories! I know from years of experience that nothing can derail a good morning like losing that beloved headband. Don’t make my mistake!

4. Create a Schedule or Routine

Although I have 5 kids, a work at home job, and many responsibilities, I don’t live by a strict schedule. However, I do create a routine for both myself and my kids. So, it depends on what works best for you! I create to-do lists for each child and laminate them before the start of the school year. You can read more about that here with my Homeschool Daily Schedule printable. If you thrive on a schedule, or if your kids thrive on a schedule, make one! If the idea of a schedule stresses you out, just create a general routine. Start a few days before the first day of school, and you’ll be ready for a smooth start to back to school or back to homeschool. 

Be sure to visit Publix for all the best Back to School deals!
