“Family Learning Journal” Unveiled at SCOPE Homeschooling Conference

Record-keeping: “You Can Count Life as School”

SACRAMENTO— Homeschooling parents looking for a simple and flexible resource to track the progress of their children may be interested in the new Family Learning Journal, which will be unveiled this weekend (June 8-9) at the 24th Annual SCOPE Homeschooling Conference and Curriculum Fair at Fair Oaks Presbyterian Church.

The Family Learning Journal was created by Gwen Devereux, a mother of five who has been homeschooling her children for more than two decades.  She created Possibility Planner, a new business she started out of both inspiration and deep frustration.

Devereux admits she struggled for several years trying to record the progress of her children, who were at different age levels and learning different subjects.

“I was constantly rewriting lessons plans,” she said. “I couldn’t get through a week without erasing something. And, the when the interruptions came, they impacted the entire family.”

“There were the constant interruptions—multiple doctor appointments and emotional meltdowns. You name it, we probably experienced it,” Devereux said. “Whether you have been homeschooling for years or just getting started, the Family Learning Journal can help parents track the progress of their children when life gets in the way.”

The two-day conference is an opportunity for parents to receive encouragement and connect with other homeschooling families.  Conference organizers have arranged special workshops and seminars, a curriculum fair in the exhibit hall, and have lined-up popular speakers who can provide insights and perspectives to Christian home educators.   This year, Devereux is holding a workshop to teach parents how they can “Count Life as School.”
