Happy Friday everyone! It's been awhile since (she) last posted anything on the blog, but today I am here with Elle Wynter (love the name btw!) to collaboration on a topic that is very near to me, personally.
And I am sure that you can guess what it because of the title! Yes, today I will be talking about homeschooling, adjusting into homeschooling and some tips and tricks that do come in handy while homeschooling!!
Before I get into this post though, I do want to say a major thank you to Elle! She has been so so kind and sweet about this Collab and very very patient! This is her blog at LifeofaTeenageAlien, where she blogs about self-help and little day to day tips to help teenagers get through life! Alrighty, now let’s get on to the post!!
The first thing I want to talk about is adjusting to homeschooling in general. Homeschooling has been a giant ball that has been thrown at you when you probably thought you never would have to deal with it, right? Don’t worry, that is totally alright! However, see this as an opportunity not a pain in the back! (yes I changed the word there 😉🤫)

Homeschooling can seem to be hard and a lot of work but here are just a few tips to help you out!!
1. NOTES, I know you probably already do this during normal school, however, I want to emphasize this more because well to put it simply, it's just not the same!!
Note down key words, due dates, work assignments, etc. things that you know you will need after class. By taking the time to write your notes down it will help you remember things better, it will give you a better understanding of what you need to do, and it will come in handy when you're prepping for a test or exams!
2. Work with your friends! Just because the world is being controlled by a tiny-but-yet-giant virus outside doesn’t mean you can’t work with friends. Do FaceTime calls and work on homework that you both need to do.
It doesn’t have to be the same thing but by having that friend(s) there it can definitely help you have a more “school” like feel and you can ask for help if you don't understand a question!
3. Schedule the things you need to do. Take out your calendar, bujo, planner, or even a piece of paper, and write down what you need to accomplish this day, week, or month. By doing this you will see an aerial view of everything you need to get done at a specific time and date.
4. Don’t let procrastination get to you!! Alright, I’ll be honest, I’m pretty much always guilty of this.. anyone else? 🙋♀️ Yes, procrastination is a been deal when it comes to homeschooling because well you don’t necessarily always feel like there is a “due date” weighing on your shoulders. However, don’t let that fool you because there is!!! By staying on top of you A-game it will definitely help you with this “homeschooling” period of your life.
5. Understand what you’re working with. If homeschooling is new to you and you don’t understand how to access your work on the computer or do something you need to do online, don’t freak out!!! Instead, take a breath (in&out) and try to figure it out. If you can’t do it by yourself, reach out to someone, it could be your parents, your friends, your teachers, or even YouTube it.
Alrighty everyone!! There you go, 5 tips to make your homeschooling just a bit simpler! There are many things I did not cover here so if you would be interested in finding out more about homeschooling, or more specifically my homeschooling experience let me know and I’ll do a post about it!
