Welcome to the Layers of Learning Podcast! Karen and Michelle are your hosts!
This podcast will be your source for homeschooling ideas and inspiration. You'll learn how to help your family learn together more fully, be excited about learning, and create a happy atmosphere in your homeschool. We both have big families and have spent many years helping homeschool moms to fall in love with homeschooling. We're excited to help you too!
In Episode 1 we talk about some practical things you can do to create a learning culture in your family and homeschool. Small steps can transform a lot of your time into learning time beyond when you have the textbooks out on the table. Create lifelong learners and curious kids with these ideas.
Episode 3 is one big layered cake analogy! We know homeschooling isn't easy, but we're sharing how to make your homeschool into a gorgeous layered cake, a delicious masterpiece of home education! Most importantly, see where you fit into the process as a homeschool parent.
In Episode 5 Michelle asks Karen about Writer's Workshop and how to implement it in your homeschool. You'll learn how to introduce the writing process to your family and help your kids begin their lives as writers. This bonus episode stemmed from your questions about Writer's Workshop.
In Episode 12 you'll hear ideas for how to help create passionate curiosity in your kids. Passion doesn't have to involve pressure if you approach it with the right mindset. A really successful homeschool will be one where kids can explore their passions and be allowed to be curious.
In Episode 15 we're talking about high school again! This time we'll answer the question "Is Layers of Learning enough for high school?" Listen in on how we use Layers of Learning in high school to prepare our kids for college and beyond.
