Sharing ideas, teaching tips and resources for the homeschool journey.
Homeschooling is an excellent way to give our children a Christian education. When we homeschool we can disciple our children and choose curriculum that has a Biblical worldview.
However homeschooling does require that we teach academic subjects and for some of us this may be a little scary.
Before you think about your curriculum spend some time working out how you plan to homeschool for this will effect your curriculum choices.
Using this method you can choose your own curriculum from a variety of resources that suit your child. It allows flexibility, creativity and more opportunities to learn together as a family.
As you search the internet you will see—or have already seen—a plethora of different homeschool methodsl; many of these styles come with a firm philosophy behind them.
Here is a list of Australian suppliers of homeschooling materials.
|Homeschooling Downunder||Adnil Press|
|Education Reformation||Leatherwood Books|
|Design Your Own Homeschool||Butterfly Bookstore|
I know it is a little scary homeschooling without the support of an "official" organization but it's not as hard as you think.
For online community and support I highly recommend joining Aussiehomeschool.com.au. You can also buy and sell curriculum and meet with other Christian homeschooling familes.
On this website I have many articles to help you get organised to homeschool.
Please spend some time looking through these articles, you will be informed and encouraged.
This is a packaged approach that requires you to follow a set curriculum. Most of the planning is done for you. Children have set workbooks on traditional subjects. The material is US based with some Australian content. Children's work is very self directed. You may also get support and some conferences.
