First of all, remember, there is no wrong way to Fun-School. We have thousands of Fun-Schooling families and every home is different. Your homeschool schedule, materials, and plans are uniquely yours. These are general suggestions but tinker to make it your own!
How do I get started Fun-Schooling?
Check out this post first and/or watch this video. This post on the Facebook group will also help.
Next, read through this blog post, and the upcoming Part 2!
Last, PM us here or email us here if you need more help selecting journals or have other questions.
Our bundles are the easiest way to get started. Bundles come with a suggested lesson plan in the bundle description and are the most “open and go” method. https://www.funschooling.com/all-curriculum-bundles
How do I select journals?
There are several ways to choose journals:
- Look on our website.
- You can view journals based on grade level, academic subject, and theme/interest.
- Choose a bundle to cover all the basic subjects for an entire school year, complete with lesson plans!
- Visit The Branch
- This is an affiliate site where you can search based on grade, interest, subject, and more
- Check out the lists on Amazon by grade
- PM the page or email TheThinkingTreeBooks@gmail.com
- Comment on the “get a plan” post
What programs are available?
We have four programs:
Fun-schooling Books https://www.funschooling.com/
Dyslexia Games http://www.dyslexiagames.com/
Teach Yourself to Draw http://www.teachyourselftodraw.com/
Math Craft (Dyscalculia Therapy) https://www.funschooling.com/dyscalculia-games-math-craft
Fun-Schooling core journals cover eight to 20+ subjects in one. Subjects include the standard school subjects as well as unique subjects like nature study, classical literature, music, and more. Single-subject journals give students a chance to go more in-depth into a subject of their interest.
How do I see inside Journals?
Almost all our journals have flip-through videos on Amazon. They also are on YouTube, search the title of the journal + The Thinking Tree. We also have flip through videos on our Facebook group- you can find them here.
The easiest way to browse our materials is through our website- https://www.funschooling.com/
Click a journal to go to the Amazon listing. The videos are about halfway down, people often overlook them because they look like ads.
This should get you off to a good start! Click here for Part 2!
