Turn life into a learning activity. A lesson plan can't provide all the learning your daily life can. Engage your child in conversations, expand their vocabulary and develop their speaking skills. Have them help you with cooking to teach measuring and conversion skills. Kids love to measure and mix ingredients.

 

You don't have to be perfect! Even teachers make mistakes, and it's all a part of the learning process for yourself and your children. Take your time, relax and know that you can teach your kids a lot when you do flub. The more mistakes you make, the better a teacher you will become.

 

Even homeschooling teachers and students want to feel included. For that reason, you should both consider joining a homeschooling support group. Your student(s) will get to talk to other kids who understand the lifestyle and challenges of homeschooling. Likewise, you can get input, advice and general support from other parents that have already struggled with and succeeded at homeschooling.

 

Can you afford to quit your job and homeschool? Have you created a budget to find out? Draft a budget of your current income and expenditures. Now, remove the income of the person who will be staying home. Also, include the cost of supplies, such as lesson materials, writing equipment, paper, etc. Can you afford it now?

 

Treat homeschooling like a job. You're a teacher now, and that means you also have to seek out more education. Professional teachers take "PA" days to attend conferences and training, so you should, too! Find homeschooling events near you or even attend one as a vacation. You'll find they teach you not only specific topics you might not know a lot about, but also how to be a better teacher and how to plan out homeschooling lessons like a pro.

 

Art can be used throughout all subjects. Kids can create a song about the topic or design sock puppets for the characters in a book. They can sculpt, act, sing - the limits are only your imagination! Your child will end up retaining a lot more information by learning by doing.

 

Plan out a ton of activities to accentuate your child's learning. If they're learning about history, have them act out the time they're learning about. They can dress up, speak like people of that time and even engage in battle, if that is what the topic is. It gives them a chance to truly experience what they're learning, immersing them in the topic and ensuring they learn as much as possible from the lesson plan you present.

 

Can you see the benefits that come with homeschooling? In the right conditions, homeschooling is a great way for your children to learn without private or public schools. Use this information to help improve your child's life and education.
