Bringing Fun and Joy into Homeschooling Your Child

Mar 1, 2008
There has been a steady rise in the number of home-schooling children out of sheer need. One of the reasons being dissatisfaction of teaching methods and another is the distance from a proper school or the safety factor. Many base their reason for home-schooling on religious values as well as the preference to personally monitor the child's progress. The availability of prepared curriculums to select from has increased. Relevant material to promote home study is specifically designed and made available to suit the requirement of the curriculum. One has the option to choose from a variety of material.

The designed curriculums broadly follow the formal education curriculums where a set syllabus is laid out. In addition, the curriculum includes more fun and joy in the learning method. The basic subjects covered are Language, Mathematics, History, Science and Social Studies. Other subjects like drawing skill and crafts also get included into the curriculum. This way the child gets to generate interest in a number of subjects. The home-schooling child is provided with the necessary material to facilitate his all round development and study. Education for the home-school child is much more fun than the school going child. There are audio cassettes, videos, educational cassettes and programs to follow. Software and internet provide for more educational possibilities. The range of drawing and craft material available too is vast.

Home schooling programs go on to include musical instruments according to the interest of the child. Some children are interested in learning vocal music too. Various other skills are included to cater to the child's interest. Other activities include skating, horse riding, swimming, carpentry, and gardening. Yet other activities included in the home school curriculum are arts and crafts. This is included in the very young child's curriculum even as the child needs to improve his dexterity skills. Story telling is very much a part of the home school learning program. Indoor and outdoor games are a very relevant part of learning for the home school child. This involves participation by the whole family.

It would be a good idea to organize combined field trips for the home schooling children in the vicinity. This will help group learning as well. Meeting and being with kids their age will help all round development along with a chance to interact and talk and discuss what they have learnt. They also get to play games and participate jointly in other activities. In addition to home schooling, children can develop interest in activities, which cover services of various types. This could be community service by working part time pertaining to church activities, visiting children who are hospitalized, sports activities and programs etc.

Activities could revolve around visits to the park or zoo and even animal homes. Children could learn how to take care of and feed the animals. They could also help in exercising the animals of the home. Children learn so much more about animals and their care. Certain values too get imbibed and inculcated through home school programs that are not covered in schools. Parents too find a distinct development in their children by providing them with home schooling.
