Introducing SEA Homeschoolers – We’re Secular, Eclectic, Academic

And we would like you to come join us. Are you a Secular homeschooler looking for a place where you belong? Do you feel that academics are important, and that it is important to use different materials and approaches that match your child. Do you fall somewhere between an unschooler and a classical homeschooler? If so you may consider joining us over at Facebook. We are a group of homeschooling parents who have come together to support each other and our children.

We have only been up and running for a few weeks, but we already have over 450 members. The group is a very positive place to ask questions and get support. For more information on the group please see Blair Lee’s post here. If we sound like a good match, we would love to have you join us.

Also starting up now is our own teen book club. Does your teen enjoying reading? Would he or she like to be part of an online homeschool community? If so please consider joining SEA Homeschoolers. We are hoping to create a vibrant online community for our kids. A place were they can share their opinions and make life-long friends.

Our homeschooling looks different from day to day and from year to year. Some years we were more strict using an all-in-the-box curriculum, other years we were very loose. My homeschool also varies from my friend’s homeschool which is one of the great benefits to homeschooling. There are so many ways to run a homeschool and so many different resources that one can use.

Are you thinking about homeschooling and wish you had a little more information? Or are you new to homeschooling and want to hear from veteran homeschoolers? If so then N.A.S.H. has something for you.

N.A.S.H. is hosting a week of online roundtables from Monday, January 26, 2015 through Friday, January 30, 2015 in honor of National School Choice Week. These online discussions with veteran homeschoolers will cover topics such as how to start homeschooling, different homeschooling methods and curricula (secular of course!), homeschooling high school, and how to deal with the subject (that ALWAYS seems to come up) of socialization.

I will be part of the roundtable during The Methods of Homeschooling discussion. If you are thinking about homeschooling or you want more information on one of the topics please stop.

You can find more information on the N.A.S.H. website. If you would like to register for this event please click here.
