How to Easily Organize Your Homeschool Curriculum

 

The number of books in the school area (and the rest of the house) looks like an exhibit hall at a homeschool convention.  Not only are there books, there are maps, timelines, educational games, math manipulatives, reference books, papers of all kinds, and a whole lot more.

 

Homeschooling for several years results in a major pile of books and every other type of educational material.  It can all become a mess in a hurry.

 

Trying to find what a child needs for school every day is a hassle for mom.  The child can easily take advantage of those moments to find something more fun to do other than schoolwork, which results in more frustration for mom.

Thank you for joining me in this first step in taking the homeschool organizational challenge. Today, we will go over how to easily organize your homeschool curriculum.  So, let’s get started.

 

Step one:  Locate all the books

 

It’s amazing where books can hide.  They manage to find their way under beds, in the corners of a room, and even under the seats in a vehicle.

Don’t forget to find all those required readers.

 

Step two: Lay out all the homeschool books on the floor or table

 

This may be a bit scary when you see just how much curriculum you have collected over the years.  But, it will make it easier to sort the books.

 

Step three:  Sort the books

 

There is no magical formula for sorting the books.  It’s all about preference.  You might want your books sorted by subject or grade level.

 

Step four:  Eliminate what you don’t need

 

Determine if a younger child can use the books.  Be sure the curriculum will fit the child’s learning style.  The remaining books need eliminating.

 

You might consider selling the books to get a return on your investment.  You can do this by either taking the books to a homeschool consignment store, selling them at a curriculum sale in your area, or list them on eBay.

Step five: Determine how you will contain the books

 

You have several options for finding a home for your books.  It might be plastic totes or bookshelves.

 

Step six:  Labeling

 

Label the totes and or book spines for quick access.

 

It’s that simple.

 

Imagine how wonderful it will be to find everything you need because you have organized your homeschool curriculum.

  1. 2nd and Charles is another option- they will buy back books and have educator discount of 15%

    We use it as a recycling program, as I only have the 1 child- I can buy books with the discount, she can use them, and if she wont need them again, sell them back, and use the store credit received to find new books she needs.

    We call it our recycling program, as many of the area homeschoolers do the same! LOL

    I know they aren’t all over, but other used bookstores might offer that program too.

  2. Thanks Nicole for sharing the 2nd and Charles. I have never heard of the store. I’m sure other homeschoolers will appreciate knowing about it as well.

    Blessings,
    Angie
