Why Home Schooling Is Worth A Try

 Home schooling might be something you’ve briefly considered in the past, or it might be something you’ve never given any thought before but are now a little curious about - either way, you’re here to do some research! And this post is here to help; here are the top reasons as to why home schooling could be worth a try for you and your family.

The Focus is Entirely on Your Child


Not every child thrives in a modern, typical classroom, and that’s something home schooling really takes into account. You need to send your child into the right classroom that caters for them, and indeed, the right school with the right message as a whole. Sometimes, that school is at home. 


And that means the entire academic focus is on your child, giving them what they need when they need it, ensuring support at all times. It’s helpful for you as a parent as well, making sure you’re at the center of your child’s education, helping them to learn what they need to for life ahead, even if you need to bring a tutor or two in to help out. 


More Educational Freedom


When you’re home schooling your child, both you and them have more freedom in terms of the curriculum, as well as the general teaching style. And because of this, it’s a lot easier to find the right balance, and plenty of freedom in the educational setting, which is great for kids that have trouble sitting still or focusing for long periods of time. 


Indeed, a survey of K-12 teachers about distance and hybrid learning showed that both staff and students tend to thrive in an environment that’s outside of the typical educational setting. Having the freedom to move through the curriculum as you like, as well as having a mix of both structured learning and free learning time, is great for ensuring the lesson really gets across. 


It Can Be More Fun and Creative


And finally, when you’re home schooling, you can make the lessons a lot more fun and creative! You can twist the lessons towards your child’s interests, and ensure they pay a lot more attention as a result. It can also help them to think more about what they’re learning, and develop better thinking skills or deeper, richer imaginations.


For example, if your child loves to get out and about, going on more field trips than a regular school would help them to keep their passion for learning. On the other hand, if your child likes to sit and listen and copy down things you tell them, you can do that, rather than mix in practicals and videos they don’t really respond to. 


Home schooling might be worth a try for your household. After all, not every child needs the same thing from the education system, and if you’re worried about how your child is doing, why not give it a try? It could really help your child to thrive!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
