10 Questions to Ask At The End Of Your Homeschool Day

One of the most important things we can do as homeschooling parents is to set goals and priorities for our homeschool. It is equally important to have a way to measure how we are doing with those goals. These questions to ask  at the end of your homeschool day will help you to see if you keeping your priorities in place and accomplishing the goals that you set out with.

questions to ask at the end of your homeschool day

The first thing to do is summarize what your personal goals are as a homeschooling parent.  Then you need to list what your homeschooling goals are. Based on those two lists, you can develop questions to help you determine if you are staying on track with those goals.

The lists will look different for all of us, but I will give you my lists as an example to help you get some ideas to get started.

A summary of my goals would be: to spend time daily with God, seeking His wisdom and strength, so I  can accomplish what I feel He has called me to do.

I realized early on in my homeschooling how easy is it to fall into the trap of trying to figure things out on my own, or getting so busy that I neglected that vital time seeking His wisdom. The busier I am, the more I need to take the time to seek His face! I know that without His strength and wisdom, I will fail.

Our homeschool goals are to:

  • Build our kids’ faith
  • Help them grow in character
  • Pursue their hearts, so we can have influence with them
  • Prepare them academically and practically for life

The questions to ask at the end of your homeschool day to keep you focused:

1. Did I prepare my heart today by spending time with God, and seeking His wisdom?

2. Did I  point my kids to God today?

3. Did I focus more on relationships than accomplishments?

4. Did I take time to laugh & have fun with the kids, and nurture our relationship?

5. Is there something I need to apologize for or make right with any of the kids?

6. Did I spend time in activities or teaching that would build their faith?

7. Did I do some intentional character training?

8. What did I do to win or keep their hearts?

9. Did I affirm more than I corrected?

10. Did I teach and train with Scripture, rather than just scolding or correcting?

Often I will look through these questions, and be reminded of a goal that is being neglected.  I can let that discourage me, or let it encourage me to get back on track.

Asking myself these questions at the end of the homeschool day is a great way to keep me focused on what really matters, and was a helpful tool to keep me focused and on track.
