Top 10 things to know if you plan to homeschool your child 

1 | Homeschooling Resources:

Homeschool parents don’t have to be experts – they just need resources.

2 | Create Your Homeschooling Space:

Create a specific area in the home for study:
Just as routine is important, so is creating a specific home study area.

3 | Remove all possible distractions:

Try to remove as many distractions as possible and make sure it’s a comfortable spot to spend the day. 

4 | Define a Homeschooling Schedule:

Create a plan to meet the goals you’ve outlined. It helps, especially in the beginning, to be organised and have a mission 

5 | Flexibility a key benefit:

Remember, flexibility is one of the key benefits of homeschooling. You can alter the pace of teaching to your child depending on the interest of your child.

6 | Choose a Learning Method :

Most prevalent methods in India are Montessori method, Unschooling, Radical Unschooling, Waldorf education and traditional School-at-home. Many homeschoolers follow formal education methods at home through CBSE, NIOS and IGCSE. 

7 | Use your child’s strengths and interests as a guide.

It is no brainer that children learn differently and have different interests! There are children who are active, hands-on learners while some children love writing on worksheets.

8| Vary activities throughout the day:

Varying activities helps to break up the day, so make sure that you include some practical activities, physical activities, online learning, and reading etc..

9 | Include videos, online lessons, and games in your schedule

Luckily, there are plenty of online learning websites that have activities for kids including quizzes, videos, games, and entire online lessons.
