How We Homeschool Our Kids
Homeschooling is becoming increasingly popular as parents look for more control over their children’s education. We have been homeschooling our kids for the past five years and have found it to be a rewarding experience. In this article, we will discuss how we homeschool our kids, what curriculum we use, our daily rhythms, and more.
Choosing a Curriculum
The first step in homeschooling is choosing a curriculum. We chose a curriculum that is tailored to our children’s individual needs and interests. We looked for a curriculum that was comprehensive, engaging, and age-appropriate. We also wanted a curriculum that was flexible enough to allow us to customize it to our children’s learning styles. We chose a curriculum that includes a variety of activities such as reading, writing, math, science, and social studies.
Creating a Daily Rhythm
Once we had chosen a curriculum, we created a daily rhythm for our homeschooling. We wanted to create a routine that was both structured and flexible. We started each day with a morning meeting where we discussed our plans for the day. We then moved on to our core subjects such as reading, writing, and math. We also included time for physical activity, creative projects, and free play. We ended each day with a review of what we had learned and a discussion of our plans for the next day.
We also incorporated technology into our homeschooling. We used online resources such as Khan Academy and YouTube to supplement our curriculum. We also used educational apps and websites to help our children learn. We found that using technology was a great way to keep our children engaged and motivated.
Field Trips and Socialization
We also made sure to include field trips and socialization in our homeschooling. We took our children on field trips to museums, parks, and other educational sites. We also joined a local homeschooling group so that our children could interact with other homeschooled children. We found that these activities were a great way to supplement our curriculum and give our children a chance to socialize.
