The new year is upon us, which quite frankly, doesn't seem possible to me! When I was younger, my mom used to tell me that the older you got--the quicker the years flew by. Now that I am...(ahem)...more mature, I understand the wisdom in her words.
The wonderful thing about a new year is that it gives a fresh start. It is a great time to examine the different aspects of your life and homeschool to see what is working and what is not. Then, you can make subtle changes to ensure that your goals are being meant.
I wanted to share a few tips with you this month about how to start this new year of homeschool science off right.
Here are a few questions you can ask yourself to evaluate how this past year went:
1. Are we completing all that I had planned so far?
2. Are my students currently enjoying their science studies?
3. Is our current plan for homeschool science meeting my goals?
4. Am I happy with the current plan for homeschool science?

If you answered yes to all the above questions, congratulations, your current plan is working well!
If you didn't, here are a few tips as you move forward:
It's always good to evaluate your plan at regular intervals to make sure that it is meeting your goals. By doing so, we can catch problems and correct them before they become major issues. These periodic evaluations will ensure that you are starting your new year off right for homeschool science!
