Why shouldn’t you have your children stay at home and have them learn there? Do you, or for that matter, do they really like having to rise at the crack of dawn? And then they have to leave the coziness of home and venture out into a school where you have little or no contribution as to what they are learning. When you home school your children, you have the benefit of being able to regulate what they are learning. You can create the curriculum that best suits your child. Who knows your child better than you?
What do you know about Charlotte Mason’s method? Charlotte mason was an important educator at the turn of the twentieth century. Her approach focused on three areas, life, discipline, and atmosphere. The home’s atmosphere and living books are the focus involved here. The methods were strict and centered mostly on good study habits while incorporating subjects that were easy to understand without the dry facts. You can locate this curriculum at many home school bookstores.
Educationally you just need to build on the foundation you have already set in the elementary grades. It is important for a child’s future to make sure some subjects are done every year building on what the child already knows. Math, English and literature, history, science along with Bible are things that I insisted that our children have a course in every year. Because of the different learning personalities of the kids we would talk about which curriculum they would enjoy using for their courses and they were welcome to add to the list any courses that they wanted.
There are plenty of reasons why parents are deciding to home school besides the once common religious reasons. One is perhaps social reasoning. Professionals who once criticized parents for home schooling their children are beginning to change their views, finally realizing what people in rural areas knew for years. That not all social interaction is positive. The physical schools are becoming increasingly violent, along with increased drug usage, and gang activity. Home schooling with satellite broadband internet allows schools to turn into interactive virtual classrooms where children are still able to interact with teachers, students, and parents. The home–school setting draws the child’s attention from negative social behaviors like alcohol, drugs, and risky sexual behavior. Chances of the child encountering violence in the home–school setting are nonexistent.
One of the biggest benefits of home schooling is that if your child needs more time to master a specific skill or concept, you have the ability to let them master it at their own pace, rather than being dictated by the school board. With home schooling, your child sets their own pace of learning and you are able to give them far more individual attention than a teacher could with 24 other children to teach. Your child will also benefit from the fact that they aren’t the subject of ridicule from other children if they don’t understand something as fast as others.
The government and state send out standardized tests that home schooled children are still required to take. Many “traditional” schools set days aside for these tests each year. Before administering the tests at home, check with your local school board to make sure that your child isn’t required sit in a school classroom first. In some areas, there are days set aside for local home schooled children to take the tests together. Use the information available through your local school board to plan your approach to yearly standardized tests.
