Alright, alright, alright!
Hi, this is Ranela from Filipino American Homeschooler YouTube and Facebook Page! I have 4 homeschooling kids from three years old to thirteen.
If I were to categorize myself as a homeschooler, I would put myself under the Dazed and Confused category. I never know how the year will actually be filled, but this school year, I’m attempting something different and I’m sharing my plans with you. In this blog post, I will share the homeschool weeks of several places we want to visit.
Special thanks to the Happy Homeschooler for allowing me to guest post about homeschool days and weeks 2019!
This post idea all started when my friend Nancy tagged me in a homeschool week promo for LEGO Land Discovery Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It prompted me to ask the Happy Homeschooler if she already had a list this year, and she does not!
HOMESCHOOL WEEKS are promotional weeks for certain establishments to encourage homeschoolers to visit and see the different activities their facilities offer. The cost of entrance is usually half the regular price. Normally, we would not be able to afford the regular price, so having the discounted prices allows us to add it into our budget.
So without further ado, here’s my list of homeschool days and weeks 2019:
SEPTEMBER 16-20 and 23-27 (M-F excluding weekends)

Thanks, Mariya! I’m so elated to have my first guest post with you! I wanted to add 2 things:
University of Fairbanks in Alaska homeschool day is on October 9, 2019.
Our current YouTube is https://youtu.be/3bSVgiwpcOk.
But I’m thinking of switching it over to Filipino American Homeschooler’s email instead of my personal email. Either way, please subscribe and help us grow our channel!
Camden, New Jersey
Thanks, Debora Neto
My friend, Nancy commented on our page “Ranela and Friends” that Please Touch Museum is $2 after 4pm on the first Wednesday of each month.
