a must read for new home educators.
on 21 July 2014
I have recently embarked on our journey of Home Education (uk) after removing my two daughters from mainstream school (aged 6 & 8) I soon had to immerse myself into researching learning at home. This is by far the best round up of the whole Home Schooling / Educating movement that I have come across. Easy to read every piece of information is useful and it gives a fair round up of all styles and strategies from unschooling to the much more structured. My favourite aspects of the book are:
Clear headings in a well thought out order, easy to read and understand starting from the decision to homeschool right up to a walk through of each subject.
Advice for organisation and how to record notes and assignments, I will be using her system.
Great information on using a whole curriculum strategy with examples and resource lists and the tried and tested approaches she has taken.
I also liked the section on Charlotte mason which is leading me to really consider using that approach :) the first book that has given enough detail to get a feel of what it's like.
I also like the routine tips and time management advice. I have 3 girls so this will be a godsend.
Included are links to sites, resources and the best books for each category. These will save you time and money when you need good books.
Not only is this book packed full of every bit if information that you need to start your homeschool journey it's also full of encouragement and advice that will ensure you stay on the road to a happy, busy, fun learning experience with your children.
Thank you to the author Kelly from a newbie Home Educator of 3 daughters in the uk x
