While you may be taking a break from formal academics in the summer months, you will still want to make some strategic plans for the next few weeks. The systems you put in place in this season will help be more productive, effective, and organized when you start a brand new homeschooling year in the fall. Here’s how to use your summer months wisely – while still taking a much-needed break from the normal routine!

Summer Strategies for Homeschool Moms
Instead of jumping right into summer break, take a few days or a week to declutter, plan, and organize for the new year. Then, put it all away and enjoy your summer. But taking advantage of that seasonal energy will help you get ready for the new school year and then be able to forget about it until the fall!
The summer is a fabulous time to set up systems in your home. Consider streamlining these areas and more this summer:
- meal planning
- Prepping 101 with Karen Morris
- chore systems
- I don’t do laundry (and you shouldn’t either!)
- delegate to your team
- systems for homeschool paper clutter
- Decluttering Made Simple Workshop
- declutter cheatsheet for teens
- eBay Reseller Mini Course for Teens
- work on life skills
Being strategic in different seasons will keep you from feeling overwhelmed. Take advantage of the natural “new year” or “new season” energy that comes at the start of summer.
And realize that different tendencies (personalities) require differing levels of accountability! Some of us just need more outside structure than others. If this is you, consider how the Homeschool Mom Collective will give you just the right amount of structure and accountability to stay on top of your homeschool organization this year.
