How to Homeschool
Practical ideas for teaching creative kids in a high-tech world!
Every family is different. There is no “right” way to homeschool. This little book is designed to help you find your own way, to help you understand the needs of your family, to inspire you to get to know your children better, and to learn how to be a good teacher-mom.
There are five keys to learning. Let me tell you all about them! If you understand how the brain works to acquire information, store it, and retrieve it – you will understand homeschooling and how to teach your child well. This book is little, but packed with good stuff!
Not just an ordinary book! It’s a coloring book too!
Here is just one page from this little handbook…
What are the FIVE KEYS to Learning?
Traditional methods of teaching children with desks, textbooks and quizzes revolve around a teacher’s need to control 25 to 30 children all at once. What a difficult task! It is impossible to teach the way children learn in a classroom, but at home it’s easy!
If children can not learn the way we teach we must teach the way they learn!
- The first key to learning is a spark of curiosity.
- The second key is a quest for knowledge and information inspired by curiosity.
- The third key is the emotion of discovery.
- The fourth key to truly learning and remembering is the spontaneous sharing of one’s discovery.
- The fifth key to learning is the creation of something new! It takes knowledge, passion, skills and understanding to do this!
This is how all people learn. No flash cards, no grades, no tests, no rewards or punishment is involved in true learning. We easily learn what we desire to know.
