My Homeschool Testimonials
Jo and I love hearing how My Homeschool is working for you. Here are some of the testimonials we have received. If you have one you want to share with us then please contact us.
We love your whole programme. Everything is awesome! Having all the ideas and links at our fingertips has made lesson planning a dream! Also knowing you yourself Michelle and Jo are just an email away for immediate support is so reassuring!Jo and John from NSW
Just to let you know, our moderator here in W.A. absolutely loved the curriculum! Very positive feedback.
We are so very happy with your gorgeous curriculum and look forward to our future years of study!Rachel from WA
I like the online links and the weekly plans spelling out exactly what to do. I also like the optional extra reading so I don’t feel rushed or pressured to complete more if we are having a busy week, but I’m still able to mix and match it to another quieter week.
I felt a bit inundated the first week I started (I’m a first timer) but then I realised that I was overthinking it and trying to supplement the learning with extra resources (which, after trying to plan my own curriculum, I felt was what I should be doing). When I realised that it was all already planned and that the work outlined is ‘enough’ it was such smooth sailing. It’s really enjoyable and finished so easily each day.Kate from NSW
I love that I have a place to start with organizing a personalized curriculum. I love the access to the Primary Language Lessons, copy work, and geography resources.
To have a grade by grade list of resources suggested and available for the various subjects is great!!
Although I haven’t as yet made proper use of the community hub, I plan to and it is reassuring to have that available!Suzie from Queensland
I just wanted to say thank you for all the effort that’s been put into My Homeschool! I had my AP visit yesterday and it went great! He’s giving me 12 months registration and said if he comes next year and I’m still using the My Homeschool curriculum then he’ll give two years, even for my kindy child who’ll be a new registration. Thank you so much for helping make this transition to homeschooling so much easier and providing such detailed documents. I’m truly grateful!Jes from NSW
I’m really in love with the literature rich style of My Homeschool. I can see the benefit and how it will help us be closer as a family. I have a 3 month old as well and this style lends itself to the busy mum. 😀 GREAT WORK!!!
I really like the links within the weekly lesson plans. While I love having a book in my hands, it is great if we are out or I don’t have the resource close by, to be able to click on it and use it. My son also likes to click on them and have a perusal before we start. For him it’s not hard to find what we are doing for the week as it is mostly all there laid out.
We are absolutely loving Dot & the Kangaroo!! what a gorgeous story, my children are captivated!!
Really loving A Book for Kids poetry. Puts a smile on our faces.
I am using it to teach 2 children. The only reason I am finding the workload heavy is because I have a 3-month-old. He hasn’t been well (silent reflux), so trying to fit everything in when I have a sick baby has been hard. I have chosen to purchase a course for my younger and give my eldest extension type work. This seems to be working so far. I am loving that I can teach them together, as it feels more like “family learning” rather than “school learning” to me. We are doing it together!!Emily from Tasmania
My Homeschool has been the perfect fit for our family. It has provided the “hand-holding” I needed as a new homeschooler while still being flexible enough to be workable in everyday life.
It took the stress out of writing the application for exemption to homeschool as everything was laid out for me, and we were granted 18 months exemption.
I love that it uses a relaxed CM style, can be taught from a Christian worldview and is Australian. The weekly plans are not overly prescriptive so can easily be implemented according to the child’s individual interests and pace of learning and whatever else is happening in our week.Lauren from SA
It has definitely made me feel more organised (I just need to train the kids better, but I do feel it is slowly happening). I really like that I can trust that the book recommendations will be all “good” and I don’t need to lose time chasing reviews etc…Overall I am finding it very adaptable, and I like the prompts for end of term reviews (that’s one thing I just never got to before).Anna from NSW
I like all the core subjects (history, geography, nature study). Moodle App is handy. Weekly guide is great!Sue from Victoria
I’m actually really just liking the balance of everything. Thank you again for providing such a fabulous curriculum.Tanya from NSW
Appreciate all the work that has gone into creating each grade level work.
As a teacher & homeschooling parent, I have an appreciation for all the time that has been put into developing the content appropriate to each grade.
Thank you.Louise from ACT
I enjoy the links to the weeks for ease and love the free content about music. I had to create my own schedule to fit with our family, but have used Michelle’s suggestion as a starting point. I love the Amy Mack stories and my kids are enjoying the texts this term.
Seven Little Australians is quite wonderful and opens up conversations with their grandparents.
I like that the codes for the AP are all there and we just tick them off.Liz from NSW
I’m really enjoying having Michelle’s years of experience to know what resources are quality, like science… The music appreciation sites are good.
I love the pick up and go nature of the Primary Language Lessons as well as the Pleasant Talk of Places. Love the copywork books!Anita from NSW
I love the lay out of week by week checklists. We’ve really enjoyed HSS – Y1 History with Marguerite which I combined with my Y1 and Y4. We have liked the complementary books recommended. My children are enjoying the CM method, less textbook and more creative and enjoyable learning. They have something they’ve personally made or journalled to show for their work instead of a dull textbook page. I have tried to incorporate the CM method in the past but this program is the helping hand I need to implement it. We are enjoying the Primary Language Lessons. I have printed the Weekly Checklists and subjects and have them spiral bound for each year. This has been great to have it all together and I can go through and highlight the lessons before we do them. We joined Maths Online in the last few weeks as it was recommended by you and this is such an excellent resource for maths. So thank you!Joanna from NSW
What a relief and blessing for homeschool families to have all the nitty gritty details of daily homeschool and homeschool registration designed for us. It is wonderful to see how simple registration can be. Michelle you have created a method for recording that oozes simplicity and that is what we all want. Michelle and Jo you are a very present listening ear and help on the My Homeschool forum and your advice is all about making homeschool work for each one. I have absolute freedom in how I use this resource. I have not followed the schedule as is but have felt encouragement from you to make it work for my busy family lifestyle, quirks and passions. Year 5 is helping our ten year old to move into written narrations and I have found Our Sunburnt Country broken into small chunks with a notebook page for each reading, is so simple and achievable. My daughter’s confidence in writing has grown in the first term of using My Homeschool following this very natural method. Thank you Michelle and Jo, for your commitment to making homeschool simple. What a blessing you are.Renelle from NSW
