For years there has been a debate on whether or not homeschooling children is a good idea. The following ten statements are arguments for the act of homeschooling children:
10 Reasons Its Better To Homeschool Your Kids ::
1. Incredibly individualized attention for your child- since the only children in the “classroom” will be your own, and maybe a few others, the teacher to student ration will be significantly lower. You, as the teacher, will be able to give each student more attention and address their needs more fully.
Not sure if I updated about our latest Homeschooling News? Thought I better get everyone up to date with what we are doing regards homeschooling!
Homeschooling New Life on the Road Style
Since we are stopped for a time in one spot (hurry up hubby and finish the job already!!) we have two children attending schools. Nicholas is loving Grade 8 at High school and Cameron is in Grade 5 at Primary School. Did you all notice how I left out the words “Loving Grade 5“? Well that is because he only goes to school for the friends, he doesn’t actually go for the education. And now that a few issues have happened with one boy hitting him a little bit too much (the kid thinks its funny?) he is not too keen to keep on going. The school camp that is coming up soon is the only reason why he is still at the school.
On Friday we were so very lucky to be able to join a Homeschooling Group day out. They had organised the Farleigh Mill Tour some time ago so I didn’t think that we were going to be able to join them. Yet at the last-minute I had a great email from the wonderful lady who was in charge of the event. She let us join the 8.00am tour.
Yeah I had to be awake super early, but I was so keen to be there that it didn’t matter what time I had to get up, and we made it (Only five minutes late due to the road works that seem to be always on going!)
The other day I posted about my thoughts on homeschooling. We are settling in to our new routine – sending three of our boys back to school.
Yet I still feel strongly that our boys would learn easily from home as they would from School. I believe that our children learn more from wanting to learn, instead of forcing them to learn. I asked a few other Travelling Families to share their own thoughts about Benefits of Homeschooling (and what/how they to teach their children)
Am I crazy to even be talking about “Homeschooling” v’s “Schooling” as there are advantages/disadvantages to both systems. But I am not going into the big debate about what is better than the other. What I want to share is MY personal thoughts about “Are Public Schools Better Than Homeschooling“
For which I am so very grateful, as I was strong enough to speak my mind regards our style of learning.
Today was the day. Our boys woke up before the crack of dawn, beds were made, brekky was gone, they were dressed and ready to go. Yet it wasnt even 7.30 in the morning! They were smiling from ear to ear, and they even had their teeth brushed.
I guess you could say they were super keen and super excited. They have been asking to go to school since I can’t remember when….its been weeks of “When Are We Going To Enrol In School” nearly every day since we got to the Mackay area.
