There is so much more to high school English than reading Dickens and writing essays.  Planning your teen's four years of English can be easy and enjoyable if you change your perspective.  Do you want your high schooler to complete English "standards" or to master the art of language?  Change your question from, "What skills and topics need to be covered in order to get high school English credit?" to "What needs to be experienced in order to effectively communicate  ideas both in words and writing?"  In this week's episode, Carrie shares the different ways your teen can approach high school English:Traditional textbook approach consisting of  American Lit and  British LitDual Enrollment Programs at the local community collegeA year of composition and creative writingA year of reading different genres and/or authorsA year of poetry and/or ShakespearePrep work for Composition and/or Literature CLEP and AP testsand more....While homeschooling the high school years, there are multiple ways to learn the art of language and there is much freedom in how high school English can be covered.  Pour yourself a latte because Carrie will cover a "latte" in this week's episode.   For a list of resources with links mentioned in this podcast, go to coffeewithcarrie.orgTo purchase Carrie's homeschooling book, Just Breathe (and Take a Sip of Coffee):  Homeschool in Step with God), visit Amazon.com.  For more daily devotions, encouragement and articles on how to homeschool, visit Coffeewithcarrie.org or  go to IG @coffeewithcarrieconsultant.   To hear more  podcasts about homeschooling subscribe to Coffee With Carrie Podcast.  New episodes are dropped every Thursday.If you enjoy CWC Podcasts, we would love for you to leave a review and a 5-Star Rating.  Click HERE; it is easy and free!#coffeewithcarriepodcast#justbreathesipcoffee#homeschoolencouragement#homeschoolwithcarrieSupport the Show or buy Carrie a cup of coffee:  CLICK HERESupport the show
Losing a loved one is hard.  Parenting and homeschooling after a death or after a loss in the family is extremely hard.  Death, sickness, separation, and sadness are all part of this fallen world.  How do we help our children?  How do we "move on"?  How do we nurture and educate our children while mourning?  In this week's episode, Carrie shares some of the lessons she has learned over the years on how to homeschool through grief.  It is a topic we don't really like to talk about, but it is a topic that hits close to home for many moms, especially after the past two years.    Grief doesn't end but it does change.  Homeschooling through grief doesn't stop but it does look different (at least for a while).  Pour yourself your favorite cup of Joe, wrap yourself in your favorite blanket, and join Carrie for this very  different yet important episode.  To purchase Carrie's homeschooling book, Just Breathe (and Take a Sip of Coffee):  Homeschool in Step with God), visit Amazon.com.  For more daily devotions, encouragement and articles on how to homeschool, visit Coffeewithcarrie.org or  go to IG @coffeewithcarrieconsultant.   To hear more  podcasts about homeschooling subscribe to Coffee With Carrie Podcast.  New episodes are dropped every Thursday.If you enjoy CWC Podcasts, we would love for you to leave a review and a 5-Star Rating.  Click HERE; it is easy and free!#coffeewithcarriepodcast#justbreathesipcoffee#homeschoolencouragement#homeschoolwithcarrieSupport the Show or buy Carrie a cup of coffee:  CLICK HERESupport the show (https://www.paypal.com/donate?hosted_button_id=9YDBPHXZT3Z54)

The Road To Reading

The Road To Reading

2022-03-3124:43

For some children, the road to reading can be a smooth fast track.  For many, it is a road with a few bumps here and there, and for some, it can be a slow meandering road trip that takes many, many detours along the way.  If you are new to homeschooling or your student struggles, teaching your child to read can feel like an overwhelming or daunting task, but it doesn't have to be.  In this week's episode, Carrie shares three simple components to helping your child get on this road to reading as well as time-tested (and research-based) lesson planning tips, resource recommendations, and engaging activities to use.  This episode is perfect for moms with younger students, late bloomers, and struggling readers.  If you already have a house full of independent readers, listen anyway and come back in a few weeks for how to plan and teach high school literature and composition.  Pour yourself a cup, put your feet up,  and join Carrie for this little coffee break!  Just breathe.....Your child will learn to read.  Resources mentioned in this episode:Better Late Than Early by Raymond Moore and Dorothy MooreThe Read-Aloud Family by Sarah MackenzieGive Your Child the World: Raising Globally Minded Kids One Book at a Time by Jamie C.

Is your yoke "chafing" and causing bruising? Are you so B.U.S.Y. you are distracted and burdened?  If so, there is a good chance you aren't wearing the correct yoke.  In Matthew 11:28-29, Jesus says, “Come to me and I will give you rest—all of you who work so hard beneath a heavy yoke. Wear my yoke—for it fits perfectly—and let me teach you; for I am gentle and humble, and you shall find rest for your souls; for I give you only light burdens”  (NLT).  In this week's episode, Carrie challenges moms to take a look their B.U.S.Y schedules and to determine whose yoke they are wearing.  This week's coffee date is short and sweet.  Carrie hopes you aren't too B.U.S.Y to listen.  Pour yourself a cup of coffee, try to put your feet up for a few minutes, and Join Carrie for a little break from your busy schedules.  To purchase Carrie's homeschooling book, Just Breathe (and Take a Sip of Coffee):  Homeschool in Step with God), visit Amazon.com.  For more daily devotions, encouragement and articles on how to homeschool, visit Coffeewithcarrie.org or  go to IG @coffeewithcarrieconsultant.   To hear more  podcasts about homeschooling subscribe to Coffee With Carrie Podcast.  New episodes are dropped every Thursday.If you enjoy CWC Podcasts, we would love for you to leave a review and a 5-Star Rating.  Click HERE; it is easy and free!#coffeewithcarriepodcast#justbreathesipcoffee#homeschoolencouragement#homeschoolwithcarrieSupport the Show or buy Carrie a cup of coffee:  CLICK HERESupport the show (https://www.paypal.com/donate?hosted_button_id=9YDBPHXZT3Z54)
This week's Coffee With Carrie Episode addresses the "S" Word.  And no!  It isn't about Socialization.  Most homeschool kids do not have problems in the socialization department.  Instead, Carrie addresses  two "S" words that she feels should get way more attention:  Sabbath Schooling and Simple Homeschooling.  How can moms homeschool in a way that brings glory and honor to God while meeting the needs of their children and doing it without losing their minds the process?  This is where the other two "S" words come in to play.  Moms should not just be surviving this homeschooling journey; they should be thriving and creating lasting connections and making joyful memories.  In this week's coffee break, Carrie talks about resting in the Lord through Sabbath Schooling and gives ideas on how to simplify the homeschooling  process.  Pour yourself a cup of hot coffee, put your feet up, and take a listen while Carrie reads aloud some of her favorite portions of her homeschooling book, Just Breathe (and Take a Sip of Coffee):  Homeschool in Step With God.To purchase Carrie's homeschooling book, Just Breathe (and Take a Sip of Coffee):  Homeschool in Step with God), visit Amazon.com.  To register for Coffee With Carrie's Annual Special Weekend for Homeschooling Moms in March 2022, visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/a-special-weekend-for-homeschooling-moms-registration-222459350907.   Space is limited!For more daily devotions, encouragement and articles on how to homeschool, visit Coffeewithcarrie.org or  go to IG @coffeewithcarrieconsultant.   To hear more  podcasts about homeschooling subscribe to Coffee With Carrie Podcast.  New episodes are dropped every Thursday.If you enjoy CWC Podcasts, we would love for you to leave a review and a 5-Star Rating.  Click HERE; it is easy and free!#coffeewithcarriepodcast#justbreathesipcoffee#homeschoolencouragement#homeschoolwithcarrieSupport the Show or buy Carrie a cup of coffee:  CLICK HERESupport the show (https://www.paypal.com/donate?hosted_button_id=9YDBPHXZT3Z54)

It is February, which means if you haven't already yet hit the homeschool "February Wall," you will soon.  During February, the winter blues hit.  The mundane sets in.  The weather prevents much needed sunshine and outdoor activity.  Children get frustrated faster and discouraged easier.  Nothing seems to go right.  Complaining is the norm.  The lessons, laundry, and life pile up with no end in sight.  Moms go into full on panic mode as they look at their school calendar and realize they have so much left to do and with so little time to do it.  It's the season of self doubt and second guessing homeschool decisions.  All of these things usually stack up  in the month of February building a wall that stops even the most seasoned of homeschooling moms in their tracks.  In this week's episode, Carrie honestly talks about this February Wall, what it is, and how to scale it.  Join Carrie for some much-needed encouragement that is needed this time of the school year to get past the February Wall and through the March madness without burning out, stressing out, or checking out.  Pour yourself a cup of coffee, put your feet up, dry your tears, and take a little coffee break with Carrie.  To purchase Carrie's homeschooling book, Just Breathe (and Take a Sip of Coffee):  Homeschool in Step with God), visit Amazon.com.  To register for Coffee With Carrie's Annual Special Weekend for Homeschooling Moms in March 2022, visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/a-special-weekend-for-homeschooling-moms-registration-222459350907.   Space is limited!For more daily devotions, encouragement and articles on how to homeschool, visit Coffeewithcarrie.org or  go to IG @coffeewithcarrieconsultant.   To hear more  podcasts about homeschooling subscribe to Coffee With Carrie Podcast.  New episodes are dropped every Thursday.If you enjoy CWC Podcasts, we would love for you to leave a review and a 5-Star Rating.  Click HERE; it is easy and free!#coffeewithcarriepodcast#justbreathesipcoffee#homeschoolencouragement#homeschoolwithcarrieSupport the Show or buy Carrie a cup of coffee:  CLICK HERESupport the show (https://www.paypal.com/donate?hosted_button_id=9YDBPHXZT3Z54)
