It can be a financial challenge to make the commitment to stay at home in order to homeschool your children. This is especially true if you and your spouse have been used to a two-income lifestyle. The most important factor in budgeting for homeschooling a the team effort. You and your partner need to work together. This team effort, combined with creativity and commitment, will create a successful homeschooling lifestyle. Here are some guidelines to follow for a successful budget:

Financial Planning, A Team Effort You and your partner should support each other in order to make the transition from a two-income to a primarily one-income family. Homeschooling is a real commitment and the budgeting required can be tough, but it is worth the effort. Begin by putting your family finances down on paper or use a financial spreadsheet program on your computer. You need to be precise and honest with yourself about your expenses. You will also need to remember to budget for less frequent expenses like car repairs and insurance. Make sure you pay your bills on time so you don’t incur late fees. You can even calender in reminders on your computer for paying bills on time. Until you have your monthly budget running smoothly, you may need to communicate together weekly to make sure the expenses are addressed. I also recommend that you use a debit card instead of a credit card to pay for expenses unless you are really disciplined enough to pay off your total credit card bill each month. The last thing you want is to be on the wrong side of compound interest from credit cards! A Weekly Budget, A Team Effort The biggest single weekly expense for a family is usually food. You should create a reasonable weekly budget for groceries. You should try to cook at home most of the time, and meals out should be a welcome, but occasional treat. Take the time to actually read those cookbooks and find healthy but inexpensive recipes on line. You will probably find that you become more health conscious in the process. You might even want to start your own vegetable garden. Learn to buy in bulk, use coupons, and comparison shop. The generic brand at a supermarket will generally be comparable but less expensive. A second big expense is weekly gas for the car. Do you need two cars? Perhaps not. Can you make one trip into town with effective planning instead of two? Another area that can be a problem for some is clothes shopping. Look for the clearance specials, shop at discount stores, or even thrift stores and budget a clothes allowance if spending in that area can be a problem for you. Be sure that your children’s expenses like music lessons or sports are budgeted for each week. Working From Home, A Team Effort In a time of economic uncertainty, you may need to support your partner by bringing in some money yourself. One way to do this is to work from home. You might start an inexpensive home based business, sell items on E Bay, write freelance articles, or even hold frequent garage sales ? There are many money-making opportunities out there, especially internet based ones, that can help you support the team effort to homeschool your children. It might be difficult at first to adjust to the extra demand of work hours from home, but if you work as a team then you can create a rhythm that everyone in the family can support. Saving Money on Homeschooling, A Team Effort Often only one person in the couple is primarily responsible for organizing the family’s homeschooling lifestyle, but it still takes a team budgeting effort to make it successful. There are many ways you can save money on your curriculum materials. First, make good use of your local library. Start in June by figuring out what books your library has that will help support your curriculum for school that next fall. Second, find out where you can attend homeschooling curriculum swap events or sales or do this informally with homeschooling friends whose children may be a bit older and so willing to pass on materials to you. If you need to purchase an individual book, consider getting it used on line at Amazon or Half.com. Last but not least, use the vast resources of the internet for a very inexpensive or free way to obtain homeschooling materials. There is a wealth of information on the net and one of the best new resources that I know for homeschoolers who want to find inexpensive and well-organized curriculum for their children is a new subscription based resource called Learning Pathways. You can sign up for a reasonable fee on a monthly or yearly basis and receive a well-organized curriculum that covers all subject matters for the elementary years organized in year-long Guided Journeys and weekly Pathways using materials that are at your fingertips on the net. It is a great idea and may completely adjust the way we look at purchasing curriculum.

Remember that if you really want to homeschool your children, there are ways to do it. These ways will inevitably involve budgeting your overall finances and your weekly spending. They may require that you support your partner by working from home. There are also inexpensive ways to get curriculum materials for your homeschooling. Creativity and ingenuity are hallmarks of a successful homeschooling family and you and your children will benefit from the conscious planning and creative effort that results in a happy and prosperous homeschooling family lifestyle.

Homeschool Math Curriculum And Your Childs Learning Styles

Should we be using a different measuring tool for intelligence? Dr. Howard Gardner, a professor of education at Harvard University, thought so. In 1983 he developed the theory of multiple intelligences, a measuring tool that allows for a multi-faceted look at the qualities and talents that comprise true intelligence. Your homeschool curriculum allows the flexibility of incorporating aspects of this theory into all of your lessons in all subjects.

Homeschooling Dads

With the current economic downturn which indicated that 80% of jobs lost were held by men, it is not surprising that at least some homeschooling families are embracing the lifestyle of dad as the primary educator. One census showed the number of full time, stay-at-home male educators was more than 140,000 in 1998.  There are certainly many more homeschooling dads now. As this article is being written by a woman, I cannot profess to have the male perspective on this subject, but I do think that its important to look at ways that fathers, even if not full time educators, can actively engage in the homeschooling lifestyle of the family. Here are some suggestions:

Sharing an educational philosophy/approach with spouse It is so important for parents to be emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually committed to a homeschooling lifestyle. If one parent is indifferent, or worse, unsupportive of a certain method of homeschooling, it creates difficulties for the whole family. Even a father that is gone from home all week needs to be in fundamental agreement with the homeschooling methods and philosophy used to homeschool his children. Both parents are teachers either directly or indirectly and it is important that the children experience a feeling of parental agreement even if the mother does all of the formal teaching. The father can read articles or even books that may be relevant to the methodology or philosophy of his homeschooling family. Monthly reviews/presentations Another way that a father can feel more a part of homeschooling is to be part of a periodic review or presentation of the material that has been recently covered in homeschooling. This could actually be a festive occasion with a chance for some singing, poetry reciting, and of course academic work presented to dad and reviewed by dad. Not only does dad get a chance to hear and review the work, the children also have a chance to review and prepare for the presentation. Sharing ideas informally at meals and on weekend field trips and projects Most fathers are still able to share a daily evening meal with his children and have time with them on the weekends. This can be a great time for discussion of ideas, to ask questions, and to plan weekend field trips that the whole family can enjoy. Dad’s input should be sought out in areas.  It can lead to interesting weekend projects together with the children. It’s important that families create these sharing times and embrace the opportunity to learn together. Family read aloud An often cherished tradition is a family read aloud in which dad can choose a great book and read aloud each night before bed. Some dads really get into this, taking on different voices for different characters. Of course this can also be a time for spiritual renewal and reading aloud from whatever sacred texts or special books are important to your family. Homeschool teaching For fathers that are able to do so, it is a wonderful experience for children to learn academic subjects directly from the male role model. There are going to be some areas where dad’s expertise and knowledge can be directly shared in an organized teaching format. This may have to involve some juggling of what may be your “normal” school times but you’ll find it well worth the opportunity to work with dad. Another option is having dad teach a portion of a subject that is relevant to his expertise or interest. Areas of science are excellent for this type of teaching since experiments or focus areas can be carved out of a larger subject for dad to teach. Some teaching opportunities may come up at specific times of the year.  For example, if you prepare your own taxes, tax time might be a good time for dad to teach a lesson on the taxation system. Everyone in our time-sensitive society should practice slowing down to enjoy the fruits of our labor, even while we are laboring! Fathers can feel more in sync with the family if they take the time for sharing and reviewing and by participating in  informal discussions with the family that form the heart of learning and living together as a homeschooling family.  To read articles written by and specifically devoted to homeschooling fathers, visit www.homeschooldads.com.

Homeschooling has proved itself with the excellent academic achievements of homeschooled children. It is obvious that great care is taken by the homeschooling parents to do the best they can to ensure their children’s work is of a high academic standard.

Homeschooling is, however, not only about academic achievements.  Nor is public schooling all about it, either.

Education is a complete package, with a big part of it, being effective subject instruction and achievement.  During the education process, children learn other valuable skills that are just as important as academic achievement.

Structure and Routine

The school system is structured and follows a specific routine. Children get use to the idea of deadlines for projects and assignments and the negative repercussions if deadlines are not met. This is a vital learning process preparing children for adult life and careers. In homeschooling parents should be aware of this and make sure that children are treated the same as they would have been in a formal school situation. It is very easy to have a less structured situation in homeschooling and if the parent is not strict about this it can later become a problem.

Strict Parent-Teacher

Teachers in public schools are objective and treat all the children the same. Children can be very manipulative and teachers are use to this. A parent will always be less objective where his or her own child is concerned. It is human nature and there is nothing wrong with it. A parent that is also the teacher of the child will have to be vigilant and learn not to give in to children’s manipulation. This is one of the first things the parent-teacher must learn to have a successful homeschool.

Goals

Learners in public schools are exposed to a variety of subjects. The more variety they have the better informed choice they can make about the subjects they want to major in. These subjects will have to be chosen with the focus on the career path they want to follow.

Socializing and extra-curricular activities

In public school children are automatically exposed to this. The parent responsible for homeschooling will have to ensure that the homeschooled child have the same opportunities he or she would have had in a public school.

It is very clear that most of the responsibility to make homeschooling as good as any other form of schooling rests on the parent. If the parent is ready for this and takes everything into consideration before homeschooling starts, there is no reason why homeschooling can’t be good. It will even be better that any other form of schooling with all the other positive things a child gains from homeschooling.  A caring parent is better than a caring teacher. One-on-one teaching is always better than fighting for attention with 20 or 30 other kids. Family bonds are tighter and the school day would be shorter leaving time for other fun activities.

Homeschooling is not as predictable and suttle as you would think it to be. In fact, there does exist a downside to homeschooling that most parents never consider, but should be fully recognized before going down the homeschooling route. Even though homeschooling will be better for some kids rather than others, some things need to be thought about before you start teaching your child from home.

The first thing you need to know is that your child’s education lies in your hands. If your child doesn’t display that skills that kids their age should be showing, then your skills as an educator will be frowned upon. So it’s your responsibility that you teach your child everything they need to know at their age, and that they understand that the material that they have learned.

One of the drawbacks to homeschooling on your part is the amount of free time that you will have to give up for homeschooling. This includes, time with friends, free time for yourself, and even time with your kids. Even though you will be spending time with your kids while teaching them, the amount of free time having fun will be dramatically cut short.

While this may frustrate you at times, you should know that this is an inherent part of the job. You will have to be patient with your child as they continue to learn and develop, and will have to accept the downside of homeschooling as well as the good.

Another thing that you will have to consider is that your career may be put on hold. If you do decide to take up homeschooling and your career is put on hold, then the family’s source of income will more than likely be left up to one parent. This may lead to stress and arguments over finances, and affect your abilities as a homeschooling parent. You will have to learn how to live on a budget, and will have to get used to living on low means.

Of course all of this is negated if one parent makes a considerable amount of income, but if they don’t, then the scenario above applies.

Another thing you need to know is that rest breaks will have to be cut to virtually zero. You can’t just decide not to teach your child today simply because you’re feeling down. You have to do the job everyday no matter if your feeling bad or feeling good – just like a regular teacher.

When you assign homework, you have to help your child also because even though you are the teacher – you will also have to play parent when your child needs a helping hand. This means whenever your child is around, you have to be there to help. There are very little breaks as your child needs you for assistance at virtually all times.

You have to make time for your child to get out and mingle also. You can’t keep them in the house all day and expect them to clear their minds everyday. You have to introduce them to other kids so that they can play and go have fun. This is an integral part of homeschooling – you have to figure out how they are going to meet and greet with other kids.

All of these thing need to be considered when homeschooling your child. Proper preparation is necessary so that means you have to be on your guard at all times to be their for your child. With a little patience and determination, it should be a piece of cake. Good luck with your homeschooling endeavors.

Eclectic Homeschooling

The available definitions for Eclectic Homeschooling are as wide and varied as the possibilities it provides. Many non-homeschoolers imagine homeschooling to be very similar in structure to public schooling, although at home. They assume that homeschooled students sit at a desk all day, working their way through a set curriculum, as well as completing assignments and exams. Indeed, this is the way that some families choose to homeschool, and it can work very well.

There are alot of kids and families that are homeschooling now and it’s not a bad idea to start doing so. Homeschooling used to be an idea that wasn’t widely accepted but now it is the norm and more and more families are doing it each day. Homeschooling has it’s advantages and family time is one of them.

As parents continue to have problems with regular public school systems, homeschooling will continue to be on the rise. There are concerns such as peer pressure, bully, drugs, and even violence that can occur at school that parents don’t want their kids to go through. So because of it, alot of kids are being taught at home by their parents who have developed their own curriculum for their child to follow.

By taking up homeschooling, you can lay rest assured that the family bond will be strengthened. Alot of people feel that homeschooling allows a parent to raise their child in a more natural and loving environment – totally different as opposed to if they would attend a publicc school. Plus, kids who are educated at home are shielded from the harmful influences that public school brings.

When you homeschool your child, everyone in the family is involved. Both parents get to spend quality time with their kids and both parents are aware of what their kids are learning in school – so there is no debate as to whether your kids are learning everything that they need to be learning.

Plus, parents have far more control over the moral values that should be learned at a young age. Something as small as a trip to the library can become the basis of a homeschooling lesson – all while spending time with your kids too.

One thing you need to be aware about however is that the homeschool family’s income is solely dependent on the parent who has a career. Because of this, proper planning of field trips, lunches, and other expenditures should be taken into full consideration while deciding what to spend money on.

But these financial decisions doesn’t have to be a hamper on the family. You can teach your kids about money and how to save by teaching them budgeting tips. They can learn how to save money and understand the value of having a family budget for emergency income.

Being home with your kids at all times will only inspire a home that is loving and caring, and this is something that you should pride yourself on. Knowing that your child is growing up in a safe, secure, and educational environment is something that money can’t buy – but is something that homeschooling can bring.

Homeschooling your child is a rewarding experience that you will find fun and educational at the same time. You can lay rest assured that your kids are learning exactly what they need to learn, and that they will be prepared to take on the world when they are done. Good luck on your homeschooling adventures as it will prove to be an exciting and fulfilling experience.

5 Big Advantages Of Homeschooling

What makes homeschooling better than traditional schooling? These days, there is a rising trend in families electing to homeschool their child instead of sending their child to a traditional government-run educational institution. Let’s look at some of the benefits homeschooling has over traditional government-run education:

1. Flexible Schedule

Homeschooling allows a flexible schedule. For example, the child does not have to get up at 7:00 every day. With homeschooling, your child can start school at 9 a.m. or later depending on your family\’s preferred schedule. You can schedule your child’s homeschooling education as you, the parent, see fit — with materials or subjects that may be not available in a traditional school. You can tailor the homeschool subject matter to suit the individualized needs and interests of your child.

2. Individual attention

In a traditional school setting, 30 to 40 students are assigned to one teacher in class. Therefore usually, the teacher cannot devote 100 percent attention to any child since it will not be fair to the other children. And, it is quite impossible to provide individual attention to all students in class that big.

With homeschooling, your child gets all the individual attention he/she needs. For example, if your child is weak in mathematics, you could devote more time and energy teaching mathematics. Your child’s homeschooling schedule can be adjusted to account for that. For example, if your child is better at science than she is at mathematics, simply spend more homeschooling hours with mathematics and cut back on science. With homeschooling, the choice is yours. Traditional schools can’t do that. They are the opposite of flexible.

3. Family Activity

The schooling of the child can become an extended family activity. Examples are field trips and experiments. Plus, your child also spends more quality time with his/her parents. There is more time for family bonding. Your child is also free of any negative peer pressure or influences.

4. No peer pressure

With homeschooling, the child does not need to prove his/her abilities to other kids. As parents, you are able to deeply understand their child better with homeschooling and therefore are able to plan the educational program according to his strengths and weakness. Parents can also change the curriculum to suit the learning style of the child. For example, some children learn better from reading while others need to write in order to learn. Some children even learn better by way of experiencing or seeing things in action.

5. Religious Learning

Religious learning is a sensitive issue. Therefore, most government schools shun it. However, with homeschooling, parents can take control over the moral and religious learning of their child. Parents can impart their ideologies and deep beliefs to the child, rather than let the school dictate what moral and religious education the child will be receiving. As you can see, homeschooling has many advantages over public education. If you have the time, the interest and the ability, why not give it a try?

Homeschooling is the education of the children at home normally by parents or sometimes by tutors in an informal way. Homeschooling is an alternative to formal education in developed countries. Although academic and religious factors dominate the motivation behind homeschooling, parents do quote other reasons ranging from dissatisfaction with the schools to the desire of better test results.

Secrets to homeschooling:
•    Homeschooling can be complete fun, if you enjoy learning with your kids. You can try to make boring things more enjoyable like providing exciting examples to your child. Let your child learn the way he/she feels comfortable because that is the way they will love to enjoy learning.
•    It is essential to devote your valuable time to your child’s learning. Avoid doing your tasks while they are studying because it will help them to concentrate on their studies. Your concentration towards them will be rewarded later. Keep your child’s learning time sacred and do not involve yourself with your friends when they are studying.
•    If your child is not doing well, or you are messed up with some problems at home, don’t give up, just try reading. Reading is the best way for your kids to learn and retain. Reading aloud delights little ones. You can record your reading and the toddlers can listen to them again and again while you complete your household tasks.
•    Make use of educational products to enhance your child’s capability to learn faster. Such products help your child to gain self-confidence and have a better learning experience. Moreover, practical learning helps your child to judge better and make them good test-takers.
•    Many of us believe that children are empty vessels waiting for the information to be poured into them. This is a wrong perception. Homeschooling parents should sit with their children and explore each of their textbooks to get the bigger idea of the picture. Try to understand the purpose of the textbook, chapter by chapter, heading by heading and word by word. Once your child is doing chapter by chapter work, you can bring them back to the big picture and then relate the importance of the information given in the textbooks.
•    It is suggested to keep in touch with home school mentors and researchers. These people are a great help to mothers’ homeschooling their kids for the first time. Involve yourself with a group or some good library. Even a good education magazine can do wonders.
•    Get into some social outings and trips to enhance the learning power of your child. But do not overdo it, as it might kill interest of learning at home.
•    Observing your child helps you to know your child’s best capabilities and talents. Children thrive in an environment that encourages independence and autonomy. Thus proper surroundings and tools should be provided to the child.

Homeschooling is simply not to educate your children at home and inculcate the best in them. It’s more than that! You need to plan and organize the curriculum for each of your child very efficiently and effectively. Moreover, there is very much a need of time management to cater the needs of each of your child. There are many factors that go into creating and maintaining a successful and effective homeschooling program. A poor time management can easily break the homeschooling program.

All of us want to accomplish great things via homeschooling – to see progress every day. None of us want to waste time looking for planning materials or completed work. Homeschooling education does not have the benefit of set schedules and time frames. Although this seems appealing to homeschooling parents, but mismanaged timing problems can become chaotic if not managed well in time.

It is very necessary to understand your schedule and how you manage to do things. Once you examine your way of working, it would be helpful to you as you can schedule your tasks with proper time management. Few important tips and suggestions are given to make your time management work effectively:

•    Try to develop a routine among your children by giving them a plan or task to follow. Once they start following a routine, time will be managed accordingly.

•    It is important to understand the subject that you are to teach your children. It helps to save a lot of time, which otherwise can lead to mismanagement and poor training of your children.

•    It is good to collect the resources and supplies well before time so that parents do not suffer later on, simply by collecting box of supplies when needed. This will also help you to focus your efforts on the subjects.

•    It is better to understand the learning style of each of your kid so that there is no mismatch that can lead to losing interest of your child in their lessons.

•    Try to avoid those things that can rob your time. Over commitment to outside activities, too many activities for your children, use of telephone are big time robbers. You can opt for alternatives to avoid such circumstances.

•    Keep your priorities in order and manage your time according to what can be accomplished in your life.

•    Your child is the source of evaluating and criticism that can help you to change the lessons and schedule when required. Students will tell you when lessons are taking too long, or when time could best be used on other tasks.

•    Make a planner that helps you to keep a track of everything that you do while homeschooling your children.

•    Time management is a proactive work. It is important to understand its value and make improvement before it runs out of your hands.

What does NCLB (No Child Left Behind) have to do with homeschooling?  After all, homeschooling is exempt from NCLB.  The regulations set forth by NCLB are all directly tied to federal funding and homeschools are not federally funded, so why should you care?

  The pressure of the testing that is directly related to  NCLB not only stresses out the kids, but it makes otherwise wonderful teachers virtually ineffective.  They are pressed to “finish the book.”  They don’t have time to stop at the teachable moments.  And teaching to individual learning styles?  Unless that learning style involves filling in a bubble with a #2 pencil, you may as well throw that out the window.  It’s not necessarily what teachers choose to do, it’s just what they are left with.  

 Is it any wonder so many families are choosing to homeschool?  Homeschoolers do what NCLB was designed, in principle, to do:  Not leave any children behind.  Homeschoolers teach a topic or a skill and you work on it until it is mastered.  In 2003, it was estimated that 1.1 million children were homeschooled. That number is undoubtedly growing.   

 Evaluating progress is not, in itself, a bad thing.  It’s the manner in which it is occurring that is disturbing to me.  NCLB wants parents to “know that their children are learning.”  But the testing doesn’t test what they have learned.  Take a look around this site to see what I mean:  http://www.fairtest.org/facts/whatwron.htm.  However, some states, such as Alaska require homeschooling students to take standards-based assessment tests.  If these children are taking the same test that the public school children are taking, what is the difference?  The difference lies in the fact that the homeschooled children have not been “taught the test.”  And parents, then, have an opportunity to see the results year to year and adjust to their individual child instead of having to make broad generalizations about children who won’t even be learning with you the next school year.  

Something many people are unaware of is the fact that there are not any federally recognized national standards.  There are many organizations (such as the National Council of Teacher of English) who have written “voluntary” standards, but NCLB does not actually define what schools are supposed to be teaching.  They just want schools to be held accountable for whatever it is that they are teaching.  Nearly every state has a different assessment test.  This is why:  Each state lays out their own set of standards (often based on the recommended or voluntary standards of teaching organizations).  And then, in many states, each district writes their own scope and sequence to meet those state standards.   

 So, what is the correlation then, between homeschooling and NCLB?  Because in most states, some type of reporting to the state is required. Homeschools are already regulated under state law. While section 9506 of the NCLB Act protects the rights of homeschools, religious schools, and private schools, state officials often have to be reminded that this is the case.  It is important that homeschooling parents, especially those just starting out are aware of their rights.  How, then, do homeschoolers know that they are getting the “right” content to their children?  Some don’t follow any of that and prefer to let their child lead their own learning.  Some, however, would like a little more structure, especially in states where there is no “homeschooling law” present.  The best comprehensive guide I have found that covers all age groups (preschool-grade 12) can be found at http://www.worldbook.com/wb/Students?curriculum.  But my best piece of advice would be to choose a curriculum that works for you and your homeschooler.
