Homeschooling for Absolute Beginners: Make Learning at Home Simple, Affordable, Fun, and Effective (Paperback)Lorilee Lippincott (author)
The mere thought of homeschooling can be overwhelming. What curriculum do I choose? What if we can't afford all the books? How do I schedule our time? Will my children become socially awkward recluses? What if I screw up my kids' education?!
Take a deep breath. You've got this! Lorilee Lippincott, a seasoned homeschooling mom, shows just how simple homeschooling can be. She and her husband taught their two kids in a one-bedroom apartment before picking up and moving the whole family to China. They've discovered that they don't need rooms full of books, educational toys, and other teaching tools, nor do they need schedules packed full of extracurricular activities, field trips, and social events. Perhaps even more importantly, they don't need to panic about making sure their kids turn out okay. It's actually all pretty simple, she tells readers.
But homeschooling well does require some planning and dedication. Here you'll find all your questions answered in Lippincott's straightforward, warm, and witty style. Topics covered include:
How to instill curiosity and a love of learningTypes of homeschoolingYour socialization fears assuagedHow to create simple schedules and stick to themTips for keeping costs downTeaching kids with disabilitiesThe benefits of play timeLegal requirementsHow to avoid burnoutAnd much more!
Full of anecdotes, interviews with other homeschooling families, and wisdom, this is a must-have for any family new to or considering the homeschooling life.
