GLPers homeschooling Teach Your Children Well
Starting this thread for all the parents with kids who will be homeschooling over the next few weeks, months, years...who knows?

My intent here is to create a thread you can refer back to like Pooka’s practical prepping even if poor.

Hopefully you have been following your child’s progress in school and have some idea of what they have been learning in school: what they have been bringing home for homework is a good start.

First take a look at the school’s website and the district where you live: there should be links to websites that you can access for information as to expectations for each grade level and links to your state’s standards and objectives in each subject area.

Google STEM education and look for stuff by age of child,

For Goodness sake, teach your child cursive handwriting and spelling, since most schools won’t, there are a few handwriting generators for free online, I.e. you type what you want and it makes a page to print and practice (will look for link)

There are also websites with reading selections at different grade levels for free. I will come back and post.

Get a keyboard like a piano or a guitar or other instrument and print out some music to go with it.

Make your child read aloud to you (especially 8 yrs or younger) every day using text they can read (not too hard). Cannot over stress how important it is for you to read to them a lot. Find classics like Charlotte’s Web; Jean Fritz wrote a lot of good patriotic books for like 3rd grade.
Older students read Johnny Tremain (historical fiction of Revolutionary War every patriot should read—adults too).

I will post more suggestions and encourage other parents and/or teachers to add to this.

Those are all good ideas. We used some of those ideas to supplement what our kids were being taught in elementary school.

My biggest concern is for home schooled kids is the absence of social interaction with kids their own age and their upperclassmen.

I ("Mentored"the closest term I can muster) two 15 year olds. One was home schooled the other a product of rural public education. Both were actually good kids and are now fine adults. The home schooled kid is Christian ( never talked much about religion but "walked the walk".
He didn't seem to connect with young people but rather sought out adult friends.

The other kid had been in some trouble at school and eventually asked me for a part time job. He was very socially adjusted among his peers and eventually adults.

These two kids didn't care much for each other but had the same hobby interests.

I'm mentioning this because a level of social adjustment is part of a successful plan IMO.

You might be apprehensive, but you CAN do it.


Many years ago, when I began hs’ing, I was scared. But, I was lucky enough to find a local group to join. Those moms were awesome.

Sadly, ya’all won’t be able to have group meet ups. But, a local group can help you with local laws and online resources.

The actual school work will take less time than normal school hours, This leaves lots of time for teaching normal life lessons and following their own own interests.

I loved hs’ing.

Good luck.

Agreed...
Also you mentioned hobbies...
There are coding projects, robot kits, crafts too to consider to occupy kids
**
Schools don’t stress basic math facts enough anymore so take time and use pennies buttons paper clips —something as counters and practice adding /subtracting/multiplying . Those drill worksheets build the neurons into long term memory. Practice, practice, practice.
Also estimates get a bag of m&ms or cookies/crackers and guess how many, and then actually count to see who comes closest (we did this with jellybeans years ago).

And grammar— to really learn English need a good grammar foundation
Writing —look up the formulaic systems schools teach to the test and build on it to develop creativity

Play word games with younger kids (like how many things can we think of that start with t, etc) teach them to speak in complete sentences and be aware of how you speak to them...never too old to learn something new.

Research Howard Gardner, the 9 multiple intelligences.

“ In 1983 an American developmental psychologist Howard Gardener described 9 types of intelligence [1]:

Naturalist (nature smart)
Musical (sound smart)
Logical-mathematical (number/reasoning smart)
Existential (life smart)
Interpersonal (people smart)
Bodily-kinesthetic (body smart)
Linguistic (word smart)
Intra-personal (self smart)
Spatial (picture smart). “

Figure out how your child learns. Then use that info to teach them. It makes it easier and more enjoyable for the child.

Just have your children read. Read anything and everything. Classics, in particular, have more advanced structure.

This mostly handles grammar, spelling and sentence structure.

A bit of background -
Eldest is a 24 year old grad student specializing in psychology & STEM related fields. Youngest is a 21 year old undergrad student specializing in the STEM field and plans to attend grad school. Both are “A” students.

Both were “unschooled”: ”Unschooling is an informal learning that advocates learner-chosen activities as a primary means for learning. Unschooling students learn through their natural life experiences including play, household responsibilities, personal interests and curiosity, internships and work experience, travel, books, elective classes, family, mentors, and social interaction.”

[link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]

I provided a rich environment. They decided how to spend their time with it so they could develop time management skills. They designed their own “curriculum”. Neither picked up a Text Book until they were about 16 years old - for higher mathematics. I didn’t do much “formal teaching”. Of course, they came to me for “help”, but they did most of the talking which usually resulted in them figuring things out on their own (the goal).

“Social Interaction”?
Of course. They had each other, me, and their father. They had neighborhood friends. Son had his friends in BSA. Daughter had her friends through music - she played piano and violin on a competitive level. They traveled the world extensively with my husband because of his job.

They were expected to be an active member of the household - cleaning, cooking, laundry, grocery shopping, etc., from a very young age. They still are.

“Schooling” was rarely a separate activity at home. It was part of the fabric of existing on a day to day basis. Not hard at all....

“unschooled”, never heard of that. Interesting concept. I'm curious as to what might have set your family on such an unusual path to learning.

I very much like the idea of allowing kids to pursue a course that fascinates them. It seems like a shortcut to a career and promotes advanced learning into specific specialties of choice.

I knew I would homeschool my children before they existed. I based that on personal experience. Although I excelled in school, I didn’t like it because most of it was a waste of time. They would teach me things I already knew when I could be doing something else. The peer competition over who had the best clothes, trinkets, etc., was distracting and annoying.

In the mid-late 1990’s, I joined internet usenet groups and emailing lists for those interested in homeschooling. I met a lot of people who did not buy into the idea of “one curriculum fits all” standard, so I had some support and information from that.

Since my husband travels a lot for his job, it made sense for our family to homeschool and not be trapped by the schedules of traditional schools or the timing of canned curriculums meant for homeschooling. As a result, the children traveled a lot which was an important part of their “education”. But, even if we didn’t have the travel opportunities, there is so much to see and do within a 50 mile radius of our home. That would have done just fine, too.

I can’t say that it was a shortcut to a career, though. Both are now attending college as stepping stones to their chosen career paths.

I spend maybe $200 a year. Build my own and use resources that are available to all.

Homeschooling is accessible to all.
