Episode 9 | Thoughts on Working and Homeschooling

In the Clinic with Camille

a podcast for integrative practitioners

Listen to the Episode:

Working from home while homeschooling your kids? 

Me, too.

Y'all, it isn't easy. In fact, it isn't easy under normal circumstances. Right now we're talking about a whole new level of "not easy." 

In this episode I share a few tips that may be helpful.


Don't forget, you don't have to do this alone! Here are a few resources:

  • Check your library for the Libby app (audio books)
  • Mystery Doug - free short science videos; also see Mystery Science for full lessons 
  • The Brave Learner - great homeschool book for parents/guardians
  • Math Mammoth is the math curriculum we use (1st-8th)
  • Build Your Library is an affordable curriculum based on reading aloud for K-12. We do some but not all of this with my oldest.
  • Blossom and Root is a naturey curriculum. 2nd grade incorporates botany and lots of herbal medicine projects.
  • Podcasts my kids enjoy include Six Minutes/Remy's Life Interrupted; Finn Caspian; Wow in the World, Short & Curly; David Walliams' Marvellous Musical Podcast; Grimm, Grimmer, Grimmest; Eleonor Amplified; Homeschool History; The Past & The Curious; Treasure Island 2020; Story Pirates; Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls; and Smash, Boom, Best.
  • Curiosity Stream has a nice collection of documentaries.
  • Outschool is a great place to outsource things you can't/don't want to/don't have time to teach. Or to sign the kids up for something to keep them busy. Referral link will get you a $20 credit.
