Article Source: http://www.articlesbase.com/5 Important Considerations When Determining Whether You and Your Child Are Ready For Homeschooling





Most likely, if you are reading this article, you are exploring the option of homeschooling your child or children. This article covers five important considerations you must make before diving into a homeschooling journey.

Consideration 1: Ask yourself if you can afford to home school. While this is not entirely a full-time job, it does take up a good portion of your day everyday without the benefit of a monetary paycheck. Your reward is the education your child receives which unfortunately, does not pay the bills. Determining if homeschooling is an option within your family budget is a priority.

Consideration 2: Research to find other homeschoolers in your area. Approximately 2 million children are homeschooled in the United States alone, and the numbers are growing rapidly. The internet is a powerful research tool and you can connect with other homeschoolers through online forums. Homeschooling families on forums are only too happy to share tips, and you can find other homeschoolers in your local community to meet with.

Also, if you and your child are on an outing, and you see other children and their parents out and about, do not be afraid to strike up a conversation. Ask if they are also homeschoolers. You never know!

Consideration 3: Remember that homeschooling need not mimic public school in the way of curriculum. Many, if not most, homeschooling families do not follow a set curriculum. Leave the notion that you have to be just like a school teacher behind you, and create your own learning program that best suits you and your child.

Consideration 4: Homeschooling is a family activity and it is perhaps prudent that you don’t make this decision without family input.

Consideration 5: Talk to your kids about taking them out of school. The way you approach this is going to depend greatly on the age of your child. For younger school-aged kids this might be more challenging, as younger children thrive on routine and removing them from school will be initially disruptive. Talk to your child so you can explore their feelings about being at home.

On the other hand, teens are much more easily adaptable and talking to them about learning through real-life experience may appeal to them much more than being in a strict schedule that public school offers.

Design Your Life For Completeness – Financially, Physically, Spiritually, and Emotionally

How many of us are unhappy about the way our life is, and long for something more? Numerous psychiatrists and sociologists have used and relied upon a number of buzz words and labels to not only define this sense of unhappiness with life but also, to actually pinpoint the causes for it. Emile Durkheim, the so called father of modern sociology developed his theory of functionalism and made reference to the phenomena he dubbed “anomie” to describe the individuals alienation from society as a whole

How to Homeschool Your Child

How to Homeschool Your Child

Now that you have decided that homeschooling is the way to educate
your child,Visit here now http://schooluniformstips.blogspot.com

 get ready for the ecstasy and the anxiety – the road
ahead is a bit bumpy, but the rewards more than make up for it.
Producing a well-adjusted and well-rounded personality is no mean
achievement.

First of all, it is important to check out your state laws on home
schooling. Some states need an affidavit filed with the State’s
education department. There are basically 3 categories for
homeschooling laws. These are: private school laws, home education
laws and equivalency laws. Find your state laws. You may also need
to maintain a portfolio that records the child’s educational
progress. It is important to look into the legal requirements
BEFORE you start homeschooling. Some States also stipulate a
minimum educational qualification for the parent or teacher.

Next, look for a support group. If you live in a friendly or
curious neighborhood, well-meaning friends will try to dissuade
you. At the very least, they may put a lot of uneasy questions in
your mind. A support group that consists of like-minded people
will insulate you from the criticism, pressures and questions of
regular school-goers. Many groups organize fun events like visits
to the zoo, museum, tours to the ice cream shops etc. And if your
children hit it off with other homeschoolers, they will be able to
build lasting relationships that do not fade when their friends
change schools. These groups provide an important avenue for
socialization.

The next important thing to do is to select a curriculum.
Depending upon the method of homeschooling, you may choose various
tools that aid you in this process. The internet is also a rich
resource for homeschooling. Do some research and look into the
material that is available.

Set certain ground rules. Homeschooling requires a lot of
self-discipline and hard work. Here is a comprehensive list of the
things you will need:
1) Eagerness to learn
2) Hard work and effort
3) Discipline
4) Time and patience
5) Flexibility
6) Enthusiasm

Consider why you want to opt for homeschooling. Your motives and
your reasons are important pillars on which the whole edifice of
your child’s lessons depends. Also, consult with your children.
Ask them what they feel about homeschooling.

Select a curriculum or custom-make a curriculum that best suits
your child. Record keeping is an important part of homeschooling.
Look into the various methods of record keeping. Set up a
schedule. Your child does not have to learn 6-7 hours a day. Allow
him or her to dictate the time. Flexibility and fun are the
cornerstones of homeschooling. Do not stuff too many skills into a
single term or year. Prepare a skill list. Make the child learn
the skills that he is ready for.

Gentle parenting is the secret to successful homeschooling.
Children make great advances in learning and show more enthusiasm.
They also turn out to be surprisingly well balanced and well
informed when they are taught at home.Visit here now http://schooluniformstips.blogspot.com

Perhaps the biggest concern your family and friends will express when you tell them that you are going to homeschool is how your children are going to learn to socialise with their peers if they are not in school.  This is a common fear, and it can be valid in some cases, but for most of the homeschooling families that I know, or have met, it is a misplaced fear.

There are several ways to ensure that your child has every opportunity to develop into a well-adjusted member of society, with friends of many ages.  And this interaction doesn’t necessarily need to involve a single school district, school or overbearing teacher—I promise!

Study Groups and Communal Learning:

With homeschooling becoming a popular and more main-stream choice, a lot of churches have begun welcoming homeschooling groups to come and use their facilities. Fortunately, these homeschool groups are not hard to find. You can Google the subject and get many good results, or also check in with your state homeschooling association to find local groups in your area.  Online homeschool forums are another excellent place to connect with other homeschooling families and to find those who homeschool near you.

If there isn’t a current homeschool group in your own area, consider starting your own. Hang flyers on community boards, churches, and any place where people go.  See what sort of a response you get.  Homeschool groups can vary from a list of contacts for support and socialising, to a formal structure where families meet at set times.  They are handy for advice, support, friendship, and the sharing of skills.  If a parent is proficient in a particular area, they may want to run a class for several children on that topic.  It also becomes a cost-effective option to create small groups for tutoring in specialised subjects such as sports, chemistry, biology, manual arts, maths, physics, etc.

You can participate as much, or as little, as you wish with your homeschool group, but you will know how to get into contact with other homeschooling families should you ever want or need.

Extracurricular Activities:

Today school districts no longer dominant the extra-curricular market. There are a lot of community based organisations that your child can participate, and socialise, in. Joining these groups allows your child to make friends, learn a skill, keep fit, and sample different activities to find their own interests and talents.  If you have a local homeschooling association, this is a great place to start.  Homeschooling parents are usually well-researched into what is available in their local area.  Other families, community centres, even the local council, are all good places to find out what activities are available in your town.  If your town has a directory, this is even better.

Keep in mind, however, that most school districts will (for a fee of course) allow your child to participate in sports and music etc. Feel free to explore that option in addition to exploring private schools and community colleges in the area who will, for the same small fee, allow you to drop-into their activities as well.  These are also great resources for extra classes you may need help with as well, so keep that in mind as a note.

Other Events:

Don’t forget to utilise bookstore events, library events, and any other children/teen events to socialise (and treat!) your child or teen. Look for postings and newsletters to find these. If you don’t ask you may not know that your local community centres, for example, holds a year-long sporting program, as well as arts and crafts lessons.  Many towns also have a theatre group, where your child can participate on stage or behind the scenes.

Also, there is nothing to say that you can’t ask for a written or oral movie review when they return!

In conclusion, there are a variety of socialisation resources around you if you spend the time to look. The result is that you will find a place where your child fits in and has fun.  That is something every loving parent wants for their child.

More parents are beginning to get the assistance of a homeschooling teacher to help their child succeed in school. There is also an increase in the number of resources in which parents can find homeschooling lessons and home tutoring for their children in local communities and on the internet. And the best part for your child is that colleges and universities have increased their interest in admitting homeschooling students! Below are the top reasons why if you’re a parent, you might want to consider using a homeschooling teacher:

1. Provides your child with the ability to receive help while taking the most challenging courses available to them:

Getting into a top college is a lot harder today than it was years ago! Spaces are limited; competition is fierce. Students must have transcripts that reflect their ability to challenge themselves. Yet, at the same time, they feel the pressure to get A’s in every class they take. It’s too risky to take a difficult class, only to receive an average, or worse, a failing grade. Students who are homeschooled, however, often have the ability to take the hardest classes at their own pace while working with both a teacher and a tutor who help them understand the material from start to finish. The traditional student, on the other hand, must rely on whether the teacher for that particular class will be able to ensure that every student in class understands every lesson, every class, and will have the time to answer every question. And although there are a lot of fantastic teachers out there, we all know that there are a lot of ineffective ones out there as well. So where does that leave parents who are trying to help their child get into the college or university that child so desperately wants to attend? Often, they’re left with the fact that although their child may have the ability to excel in a tough course, they’re not sure whether they should risk that the student might struggle so much that they receive a bad grade. And they’ve been told by guidance and college counselors and other parents who’ve been through the college admissions process that colleges are definitely not looking for students who choose to only take the safest classes. What a lot of people don’t know is that a student who is receiving homeschooling lessons has the ability to take the most difficult classes available to them, even sometimes at their local community college, and under one-on-one guidance and home tutoring of a teacher or tutor.

2. The Homeschooling Teacher has the ability to invest more time into your child’s education:

Although a homeschooling teacher typically has a set of students with whom he or she is working, their focus is on only one student at a time. This allows parents the ability to communicate regularly with a homeschooling teacher about their child’s progress. Parents are also often pleasantly surprised at just how much the homeschooling teacher and tutor are dedicated to and invested in their child’s success, much more than a teacher at a traditional school who usually has over a hundred students with a hundred set of parents to help every day.

3. There is more direct interaction between parent and teacher:

What’s more, a homeschooling teacher and tutor can help the parent tailor the course, including the homeschooling lessons, to better fit the child’s needs and learning style. And of course, if a parent feels as though the homeschooling teacher is not effectively helping their child, the parent is free to change teachers. Of course, this is not so easy to do at a traditional school!

4. Homeschooling students still have the ability to socialize with other students their age:

It is true that students need time to socialize with others their age. Yet, many homeschoolers are involved in athletic clubs, social organizations, and many extracurricular activities available to them in the community, such as theatre, dance troupes. And rarely do homeschooling students complain of a lack of an ability to socialize and “hang out” with kids their age. There are just too many ways outside of the traditional classroom to do this. Many students also find that outside of their home tutoring, they have opportunities available to them to expand their learning through trips to museums, parks, and other venues, which helps to make them well-rounded active learners.

For over ten years, we have provided one-on-one teach-tutoring for students enrolled in home schools and traditional schools and helped them achieve their academic goals as well as outstanding grades in mathematics, English, science, literature, and language courses.

If you have a picture perfect image in your mind about how homeschooling is then you may be surprised by the truth. Homeschooling isn’t all sitting at the kitchen table and watching your kids work while sitting quietly. This scenario isn’t all true since there are different ways of teaching your child. Some methods are different from others, and these methods will affect that kind of homeschooling environment that you have in your home.

There are 4 distinct ways to teach your child at home and the right one for you will be based on your style of teaching. So in this article, we will explore these 4 teaching methods, and how each one varies from one another. Here’s the first method of homeschooling:

1) Charlotte Mason

You probably already know who Charlotte Mason is, but if you don’t I will briefly explain who she is. Charlotte Mason started the idea of homeschooling. She was a homeschooler herself and set out a mission to make homeschooling educational while enjoying in the same manner.

Her method of homeschooling hones in on the core subjects that would normally be taught in a traditional school setting. She also focused on literature subjects such fine arts, music, and poetry. How this works is that the teacher would read a part of a book, and the child would be asked to summarize what was read. This starts at age 6 and continues to age 10 – which after age 10 the child will be asked to write down the summarization instead of speaking it.

She also started the idea of something called “nature diaries” – and it’s like exactly how it sounds. After a lesson, the child is asked to go outside and get observations from nature. This allows the child to free their mind as well as having a sense of respect for nature. Mason thought that in addition to core schooling subjects, that behavior and attitude was also an integral part of the learning experience.

Here’s another popular homeschooling method:

2) Ecletic

The eclectic homeschooling method takes a mixture of different homeschooling techniques and combines them into one. The goal here is for the parent to select multiple topics that will be the best course of schooling for their child. In addition to this technique, parents are continuously search for new patterns and methods that will best suit the needs of their child.

This makes the schooling lessons for their child pre-made and the parent can adjust the curriculum to suit the needs of their child. Occasional trips to factories, libraries, and museums are also common in an ecletic style of homeschool.

3) Unschooling

The unschooling method was started by a man name John Holt. John Holt thought that allowing children to learn at their own speed allowed them to best learn a subject. In this method, there is no set curriculum, since the curriculum is based on the child’s tastes and interests. By making a curriculum this way, the goal is to “unschool” child from a traditional learning setting. This is the most unorthodox technique of the methods listed and works better for some children rather than others.

If you’re looking to homeschool your child and haven’t figured out yet how best to teach your child, then these methods should be of some assistance when you do. Good luck on your home schooling quest.

Every parent dreams of giving their child an exceptional education. For many parents this means looking at the different schools within their home areas. For others this can mean looking at a suitable homeschooling program. While there are lots of different types of homeschooling programs that are available each state has its own set of rules regarding homeschooling. These homeschooling laws are worth checking out before you enroll your child in a home school program.

To find out what your local homeschooling laws are like it is best if you know some facts about your state’s policy towards homeschooling. This is due to the fact that some states seem to have no need for documentation from parents or homeschooling programs about their enrollment policies or the subjects that they teach.

When you look for this information on the internet you will find that there are four categories of homeschooling laws. These laws range from no legal requirements about homeschooling to very strict laws regarding homeschooling. At present there seems to be about 6 states where the homeschooling laws are very strict. On the other hand there are 10 states where there is no need for homeschooling laws.

These homeschooling laws are also found in the territories of the US. Since there are many different criteria that states have for homeschool studies there are times when as parents you will need to provide documentation. The documentation will include parental notification to the state about your child’s studying as a home school student.

For the states where the homeschooling laws are very strict the state requires more than a parental notification from the parents. The documents that you must produce are achievement test scores, the homeschool curriculum approved by the state, professional evaluation of your child’s educational progress.

You will also need teacher qualifications of you and your spouse as teachers for your children while they are engaged in homeschooling. Some states may require that state officials visit your home to inspect if the children are receiving a high education. These are just a few of the various documents and other facts that you need to be aware of regarding your state’s homeschooling laws.

Since each state has different rules regarding homeschooling it is a good idea if you can find information about the state laws for homeschooling. The main fact that you should keep in mind with state laws and homeschooling is that before your child becomes a home school student you might need to see what the homeschooling laws are.

Homeschooling is akin to home education or home learning. It is a process to educate a child within the comfort of a home. Parents have an important role to educate the child at home. Many feel that homeschooling is much more beneficial than enrolling a child in a public or private school. Homeschooling is a major decision of parents, which entails responsibilities to teach the child at home. So, they need to seek help from homeschooling guides or books or surf the Internet to plan and set goals to benefit and succeed in their endeavors.


So how will you begin homeschooling your child? Below are few important points to help you to start your homeschooling in a better way.


Requirements: Every state in US has their own laws to setup homeschooling. So, abide by the laws, where you need to qualify to conduct a homeschooling in your area. Most of the homeschooling requirements are quite simple and it is not a big problem.


Support groups: Though it is not a compulsion to join a homeschooling support group, still it would help you, if you associate with such a group in your neighborhood. You would be in touch with the parents, who are into homeschooling. You can take advice and suggestions from them, especially when you have plans to start homeschooling. The support groups organize educational trips, such as visit to museums, zoos and libraries. You could even participate in discussions and forums, which are conducted to assist parents involved in homeschooling. You would widen the scope to exercise the process of homeschooling.


Create an environment at home: You may need to make rearrangements at home and allot a specify area and adjust a time frame for homeschooling. If you have a separate place for homeschooling, this would develop an interest in the child for studies and would have less chance for distraction, in spite of the home activities. As far as possible, allot a fixed time to teach and help the child to learn. This would help your child to be organized and disciplined.


Design a plan with easy schedules: You have to design various study schedules for everyday lessons, games etc. You can also prepare a book with a plan to be systematic and to track each day’s tasks to be completed by your child. In some of the states this is an official requirement. It will also help you to understand the areas, where your child needs improvement. Develop a goal oriented study method. Try to make the study quite effective that is to start the day with a tough subject as the child will be in a fresh mood and end his academic tour of the day with an easy subject to rest his brain.


Curriculum for homeschooling: Select a method for homeschooling, which would be based on the child’s learning aptitude and his learning ability. Some of the methods are Montessori classic and Charlotte Mason homeschooling. Don’t purchase curriculum from one place, instead you can pick and choose from different resources.


Try to teach your child by imparting philosophy of life. You can teach more effectively, if you can cite examples from study books to illustrate your philosophy.


Initially, when you start your homeschooling, you may find your child unable to concentrate on studies or simply would not do his studies. Don’t get tensed, instead relax and invite kids from neighborhood for few hours for the child to get associated with them and to feel comfortable in their company. The child would change his moods and simply would concentrate on his studies. You will soon come to the conclusion that your decision to opt for homeschooling your child was a wise decision.


So, stay focused on your reasons to opt for homeschooling. At times you may feel that you are unable to play the role of a teacher and may rethink to put your kids back into public school. Take a deep breathe and think of some perspectives. One of the biggest advantages of homeschooling is, to provide flexibility, when needed and you can cater to your children’s education with a distinct method and style to begin homeschooling.
