i would love to see a piece or two on organization- or lack thereof- for homeschooling! that's been a big thing to tackle for us. i just don't know what it should look like, or what it needs to look like?

I would love to see an article on homeschooling an only child and motivating when the child doesn't want to do the work.

This is a great blog! I'd love to see posts about getting started in homeschooling, the early years. Also how to homeschool with little ones in the mix too. Thanks!

Awesome! Love this curriculum and wish I had found it sooner! I would live to see something about how to keep younger children occupied and engaged while dealing with older children.

I have four boys that I homeschool. I would love to see a blog post on multiple children and how to flow with it all especially boys! Their energy is different...especially when they are all boys. I find myself taking deep breaths through the noise, physicality, just trying to get them to stillness is really hard. And we have used waldorf method from the get go, do no media, tons of rhythym to our days, but still, it is overwhelming often. There has got to be an easier way then trying to do all of them with their separate grades, stories, handwork, etc. I'm constantly googling to find mamas using waldorfy methods with multiple boys and find nothing! Just a couple negative blog posts about Waldorf not being for boys! Lets get something positive out there regarding homeschooling them instead! Can't wait to read more...your blog is great so far!

And posts on homeschooling from birth. We need inspiration on teaching young children all they can actually learn.

I'd love info on prepping for state mandated tests without turning learning into a miserable memorize-and-forget hamster wheel.

I loved the idea of doing a family read-aloud. I would be interested in other ideas for learning activities that can be done as a group with children from 1st grade through high school, in a variety of subjects.

I would be very interested in homeschooling children who grow up with multiple languages and how that plays into their learning.

Just subscribed to Oak Meadow blog...

 

I have a young preschool aged child -- I would love to see a future blog dedicated to very young learners & to the balance between being an educator/learning guide of a child & also his/her parent.

I subscribed to the blog - I liked the college-oriented articles, as well as toddler...the handwriting blog reminded me of my leftie- so maybe more about being "unconventional" would be nice! Gifted kids, another good topic.
