Have you ever had the opportunity to sit down with a homeschooling friend and talk about planning? Well, that’s exactly what Robyn of Waldorfish and I (Jean of Waldorf-Inspired Learning) got to do! And we did it on camera. So you could watch it, too. In this video, two homeschoolers talk about planning. Scroll down for the video…
Robyn and I have been long-distance, virtual friends – we share a lot in common about our homeschooling philosophies. And we finally got to meet in person in Atlanta at the Waldorf Homeschool Conference in March 2019!
We talked and talked and TALKED during every spare second we had at the conference. And knew we needed to keep talking once we returned home!
This video is the continuation of those conversations. The first of what we hope will be many more that we record and share with you 😉
If you’re preparing to sit down and do some homeschool planning in the near future, consider starting with this video and a cup of tea!
