March 5, 2010, Newsletter Issue #320: Home Schooling Styles

Tip of the Week

Unlike public school, where all of the students follow the style laid out by their teacher, a homeschool education gives families the opportunity to develop a learning style that suits them best. You need to assess your family situation and how your child learns. Some good questions to think about are:

• What kind of a teacher are you?
• Is your child a self-motivator?
• Is your child a visual learner?
• Is your child an avid reader?
• Is your child a computer enthusiast?

*All of these considerations, and more, will help direct you in the right direction. Try going to a home schoolingcurriculum convention and gather advice from the representatives from the different companies there.

Thanks so much for reading the the Homeschool Tips Newsletter.

The new 2006-2007 Sonlight catalog is hot off the presses! In addition to new educational resources, we've also made some significant improvements to our curriculum, such as expanded flexibility in Reader choices for Levels K through 2.

The catalog also provides several articles with helpful homeschool tips. For example, check out the "Top Ten Goals" article (pp. 146-147) which can help you think through your personal philosophy when it comes to homeschooling. And "Why we use certain books that some homeschoolers won't touch" (pp. 144-145), that gets into some pretty important issues about the content of books. And you won’t want to miss “27 Reasons NOT to Buy Sonlight”—a perennial favorite (beginning on page 148).
