What is Homeschooling?
Homeschooling or homeschool (also called home education or home learning) is the education of children at home, typically by parents. Other realtives, tutors, even the students themselves are often the ones responsible for the childs education.
There are different styles of homeschooling. We prefer an electic/unschooling approach. We use no formal curriculum, as in I haven’t purchased a set curriculum. My daughter did pick out a math workbook and 2 science workbooks she wanted, but we don’t use them everyday.
We learn a lot through games, cooking and science experiments. We also love nature, our farm animals and blogging and building webpages. We have a shelf (well 3 shelves) of books on just about every subject you can think of, as well puzzle books, games, and the Internet. We also frequent the public library and my daughter attends business meetings with me as I am the Coordinator of the Central New York Network Marketing Group.
In her spare time she babysits kids, helps homeschool a friends 6 year old, and helps a neighbor who is having medical problems right now.
We belong to the homeschooling group LEAH and soon she will be taking a class with other homeschoolers.
