The Basics of Learning and Homeschooling
For the Loving Mother who wants the best for her children but isn't sure of her ability to teach her children at home..
You want to do what is best for your children. You are convinced that homeschooling is what's best. So now you need to know - where do I start? Should you teach your kids the way you were taught in school? When should you start teaching them? What should you teach them? What curriculum should you use? Do you have to buy expensive boxed curriculum?
So many questions swirl around in your brain. This is the most important job you have ever had. You want to make sure you do it right. Relax! You will be fine. You can do this! I will come alongside you and help you learn the basics of how children learn and what choices you have and what works best for different personality types and learning styles. I will share some experiences and examples from my many years of homeschooling and the training I had in earning my education degree and the continuing education I have done for myself over these last 20+ years. I combine research, theory, philosophy, experience, and intuition to help you find out what works best for you and what will bring out the best in your children.
Even if you feel that you can't homeschool your child solely, this course will help you as you work with your child on homework and supplement their school learning.
I was a first grade teacher in public school until I became a homeschool teacher when I had my first child. I went on to homeschool all 10 of my children and am still working with my 5 youngest. Over the years I learned a lot about how children learn and what works best to make learning fun and what makes it stick.
