Your Child Learns
A look at the way your child learns in the home environment
Your child learns constantly
There are many different things your child learns in the home environment every day. Your child learns by watching you and then imitating you, your child learns by interacting with games in the home. A lot of parents have taken things further and use homeschooling to educate their children instead of sending them to school.
You can meet both these methods half way and send your children to school where your child learns in line with a set school technique. As well as this you can throw in a bit of homeschooling as well where your child learns to your beliefs.
It's not as hard as you may think and unfortunately a lot of parents are put off. For example, the most basic, common lesson you can give your child is to help teach them how to read - you should always try to teach your child to write as the same time as reading. Children learn to read faster and easier if they learn to write at the same time. The motor memory of the letters, listening to their sounds and seeing them in writing will reinforce new learning. So, teach your child to write letters and words.
This is a very handy trick to start children off with homeschooling and it is known for creating a solid bond between parent and child making the learning process a lot more successful and enjoyable. Your child learns a lot faster if they are not thinking of work as school tasks but instead, fun games. If you are thinking of trying some homeschooling to try and help out your kids educational development there are many different ways you can find help.
First of all get in contact with your child's teacher. Most teachers will be only to happy to give you some tips and discuss what they are teaching them in school. There are lots of homeschooling support groups around so you should always check out your area - the local library would be a good start.
It's important to remember that you do not have to choose one or the other. You can teach your children at home as well as let them have a state education, your child learns either way. The final choice is down to the particular parent and their personal education beliefs.
