How to Choose the Best Homeschooling Curriculum?
In order to choose the best homeschooling curriculum, below are some points to keep in mind:
– Determine what kind of learners you are teaching
– Know your child’s learning style and their learning struggles. If you are not sure, check out our online learning assessment test to see what ways your child learns best.
How do we teach a child with learning differences?
Develop their strengths.
Each child is different and the way we learn and understand the world around us is very different. Homeschool parents and 1:1 private homeschooling have the rare opportunity to help their students discover and their develop their learning superpowers. Children who are passionate about dance and robotics can learn their core subjects using dance and robotics as their core focus. Imagine building a dancing robot that you need to program using math, reading and following directions, then writitng a story about this dancing robot. Who knew learning could be so much fun?!
Compensate for weaknesses
Children that have learning disabilities such as dyslexia may have a hard time with reading. Building unique lessons to compensate for the weakness in a form of using sight words instead of phonics is the flexibility of a strong homeschool program.
Use multi-sensory techniques and have fun
Learning should be fun and engaging. Hands-on activities are always a great way to make learning fun. Creating a volcano that bursts colorful lava is not only a hands-on learning activity, but also one of Science class favorites. Singing sight words, sand paper letters, shaving cream writting, finger paint fun, and words writing in colorful salt are just a few things that make Language Arts and Math class so much fun.
