Once you make the decision to homeschool you are often left with the question, “where do I start?” There are so many resources out there that it can make it extremely overwhelming. In this post you will find the basics of what is needed to homeschool.
First thing you should do is learn the laws in your State. You can check out this website for information in your area.
Second, you should have a plan. In your plan include;
- What space will be used for your “learning area”
- How much time do you have to put into this
- What goals would you like to accomplish this year ( I say this year because I take it one year at a time)
Third, know your child’s learning style. This will help you when planning your curriculum.You can find more information about learning styles on this site.
Lastly, decide on what type of method you will use and begin designing your curriculum.
Do you want an online class, a free curriculum, a package deal, will you teach religion? These are important questions to ask yourself before choosing one.
