Homeschooling Activities
New Ideas for Your Group

Are you looking for some new homeschooling activities for your homeschool group? Do you sometimes get tired of offering the same old events year after year? I came up with the inspiration to offer this section in an effort to share some of the ideas that our group has had. These are some of our tried and true activities that must show up on the calendar every year. If for some reason they don't, people start calling our coordinator and asking how come we aren't doing them.

I hope that you will take the time to explore some of the fun things that we've done and get some good ideas to liven up your own homeschool group.

If you are just starting a group, then I hope that these pages will spark some interest in you and you'll pick one idea- or more than one- and run with it.

Homeschooling Activities

Here is the list of activities that we do (or have done) pretty much on a yearly basis. Just click on the link for more information.

Additional Ideas

Over the years we have also created and successfully completed Catholic co-ops.  The first venture was called "Kid's Club" and we met once a month and broke the kids up into different age groups and had age-appropriate activities.

Next, we moved it into more of a class structure and offered topics like art, music, Spanish, writing, etc. but still held it on a monthly basis.  This was fun for the kids and good as long as the content of the class stood alone for that month.  Spanish was hard to do on that type of time line, so you will need to pick classes that have subject matter that can be taught in one sitting.

Finally, we went to a true co-op format, which we called Serviam, that offered all kinds of classes for all age groups on a weekly basis. It was a lot of work but the kids loved it.  This offered us a lot more flexibility in terms of the types of classes we could offer since we met much more regularly.

We have also offered stand-alone classes in writing and various sciences.  These have been taught by college graduates or dads who have training and/or knowledge in a specific field.  These have been invaluable for our high schoolers.

I hope that this has helped spark some ideas for your homeschool group.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
