Tips For New Home School Families

For those of you who just started to home school and feel over whelmed with it all here is a few tips that might help you on your journey.






1. For those of you who just pulled your child from public school or Private to homeschool I would suggest you take some time off and readjust it is ok to take a few days some people take longer than that just depends on the family. Get to know your child's learning style it will help you when you’re ready to get back to learning.. Just because it works for other families it may not work for yours. 

2. Learning is fun help your kids by allowing them to pick a subject they want to learn and make it as fun as you can children pick up on everything they learn try using projects are documentaries to help I also make a lot of field trips and my kids love it.

3.First thing you will want to do is set your own pace to how you want to home school what works for other may not work for you.  Over the course of time your home school strategies will change and you will be able to figure what works best for you and your family never compare your family home school experience to someone else each person has their own unique experience on learning.

4.Be willing to try new things if something is not working try another way to learn sometimes a certain curriculum or book might not work and that is ok your kids might like the hands on approach try going on an outing with the kids. You should utilize the Library they have a lot of resources for homeschoolers and they host events my kids live and breathe the library.
