Elementary-aged children have so many questions. Their curious nature is the driving force behind their desire to learn, and providing direction and guidance at this time in your young child's life will inspire life-long learning.
To encourage your child to be enthusiastic about learning, approach elementary homeschool with a spirit of excitement, fun and a sense of mystery. For the youngest of learners, the discovery of a new bug can lead to an entire science and language arts unit on insects, guided by research work, spelling of scientific and common bug names, and habitat and lifestyle habits. Each exercise will create an extensive knowledge of vocabulary words, factual data, research skills and general life skills.
