You're constantly second-guessing yourself and wondering if you're doing enough.
You worry that you're missing something, or that you'll somehow fail your child.
And those end-of-the-year homeschool evaluations are looming.
Homeschooling doesn't have to feel hard or complicated.
You can embrace rabbit holes and surrender to delight-driven learning without the overwhelm.
You can follow your child's interests and check off those homeschool "must-dos" that weigh on your mind.
This type of learning is so much fun and you can make it "count" for those year-end evaluations!
I LOVE this course, Cait! It's so well done- the audio is crystal clear, the content is top-notch (as always), and the layout is stellar! You've got my wholehearted 2 thumbs up, and as someone whose homeschool was radically changed for the better by the concept of Lazy Unit Studies and desire-led learning from you on the podcast and from following you online, I can see how this is really going to help so many.
Cait's Lazy Unit Studies really helped reset calm in our home. I've gone from drowning in my kids' sea of interests to navigating tsunamis (a current kid obsession) like a pro!
Cait's passion for being a champion for the homeschooling parent is evident in the time and care she's put into this project. I love how the course is self-paced and how every lesson within it holds a valuable, "ah-ha" that has helped me shift from feeling overwhelmed and frustrated at time to encouraged and ready to take my children's next topic of interest and turn it into a fun and authentic educational experience for them, without the planning fatigue I've encountered before. Thank you Cait!!"
Imagine waking up tomorrow with a smile on your face because you know, without a shadow of a doubt, that you are meeting your kiddo’s unique needs.
Imagine your child immersed in delight-driven learning and creative pursuits.
Imagine connecting with your child over delicious books, incredible games, and a patchwork of creative resources.
Imagine a joy-filled homeschool.
As a school psychologist and product of the public education system, homeschooling was never on my radar.
My husband and I planned to send our kids to school because that’s what people do.
Sometimes life throws you a curveball. Mine came in the form of a quirky, brilliant, asynchronous little boy: our oldest son.
The public school system failed our quirky, outside-of-the-box kiddo.
I knew in my gut that we could do it better.
And so we found ourselves suddenly, unexpectedly, homeschooling.
We have never looked back.
I found myself relying on my background in education and child development… but in an entirely new and unconventional way.
And it was working.
We spend our days immersed in nature, chatting around board games, snuggling over incredible read-alouds, and exploring a patchwork of creative resources.
My children are thriving. Yours can, too! I wrote Lazy Unit Studies 101 for you, so that you can learn to embrace those rabbit holes and surrender to delight-driven learning without the overwhelm.
This course can transform your homeschool atmosphere and routine! The approach outlined in this course can work with all ages, but is best suited for preK-6th grade.
Strewing and unit studies always look so easy and amazing on Instagram, but then when I do it with my boys and it doesn't look like those other families, I get very frustrated. This course was extremely beneficial. I highly recommend Lazy Unit Study 101 for every homeschooler, no matter where they are in their journey- newbie to veteran and for any style. For the homeschooler who wants to add more in simply to the rigorous homeschooler who wants to slow down and relax a bit.
Nothing knocks the wind out of a homeschool mama's sail as quickly as the words, "but I like [insert interest d'jour] now." I want my children to want to learn and unit studies can be the perfect way to engage them but I didnt' know how to best balance their ever changing interests with how much time and effort I put into organizing the units until I took Cait's Lazy Unit Study Course! Not only is this course so encouraging to me as a homeschooling parent but she really has done all the work for me too! This course is practical and informative. Her resource library alone is worth every penny!
I'm a mom of 3 double gifted children (yeah, the three of them) and as I struggle with depression, homeschool was hard for me. But Lazy Unit Study 101 forced me to search and find wonder in everything. To play more. To smile more. To reconnect with my children. It's not perfect every day, but now, when I'm lost in darkness, I know how to light a spark.
I love your game and book recommendations and you are so encouraging. I especially love how you make joy a priority in your home and how you make learning purposeful and fun. Thank you for all your help!
We are in our 3rd year of homeschooling and it has been magic because of all the resources that you share.
You write about giftedness and asynchronicity in a way that makes me feel seen.
