How To Homeschool Workshop

Our free July 23 homeschool workshop will be 1-2 p.m. at Central Resource Library, 9875 W 87th St., Overland Park, KS 66212.

Can’t make it to the free in-person workshop?

If you can’t make it to the July 23 workshop, we are planning to host a live “how to homeschool” webinar at 10-11 a.m. Saturday, June 25. (A recording will be made to send to registrants so they can watch it 2 weeks after the webinar.)

You can register for this event here!

The workshop will include discussions on the following:

How to Homeschool: Beginning the Journey

Beginning any endeavor well is a key to long-term success. We’ll help you set expectations, meet legal requirements, tailor curriculum, and choose philosophies for your unique family. You will leave with resources and confidence to begin or continue your homeschool journey.

Laws, Testing, and Grading

Understanding and fulfilling homeschool law in Kansas and Missouri can seem overwhelming. We will learn how to implement the laws into your daily schedule as a busy homeschool mom and help to keep you organized in the process.

Teaching Multiple Grades

Are you overwhelmed with the idea of teaching multiple kids, with different ages and learning styles?  Have no fear!  We will give you some tips and strategies on how to have a successful homeschooling day, as well as meet the unique needs of each of your children.

Speakers:

Jacklynn Walters has been married to her husband, Justin, for 16 years. They have four children and have homeschooled in both Missouri and Kansas. Their primary focus is to raise up their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Jacklynn is passionate about encouraging and connecting with homeschool moms and families. 

Natalie Haber has 5 children. She is a proud homeschooling mom and a veteran women’s Bible study teacher. Her heart is to encourage mothers in all walks of life to believe in their ability to produce a life-giving home and experience for their family.

    Do I need to sign up for the workshop or do I just come?

    • Hi Whitney,

      The workshop is open and available to everyone, so no need to sign up. However, if you want to take advantage of the discounted dinner option, then please sign up in advance so that we know how many dinners to prepare. We can’t guarantee that there will be enough meals for everyone if they come to order on site.

      Hope this helps!

    I see where to sign up for the webinar on June 25, but not the live event.

    • Yes, that’s correct! We don’t have any signup for the live event tonight – you can just show up. The webinar will have a recording and a signup link, which is why we need people to sign up for that option in advance.
