Most might not be cut out to be a 'homeschooling' mom, but this I am certain, learning starts at home and all of us can be a great teacher!
Let's start with this:
1. Talk and Listen to your child.
Don't baby talk, expand your vocabulary, speak and explain, don't underestimate their capacity to learn and understand.
Listen to your child's interests and explore it. Build up an idea for them to expand their interests.
2. Read and experience the Story
Each book becomes memorable and special if you do something that is in relation to it.
3. Be a good example.
Children mimic us, our words and actions they see, even when you think they are not attentive.
Go beyond and be a Home schooler! I attended a homeschooling conference last week, with this I learned a tad more about it.
1. Be Organized and manage your time
Make a plan and a goal to follow.
2. Assign a budget to spend for a homeschooling curriculum and materials to support it.
Government requires a provider for kindergarten, so you still need to enroll.
We don't have enough libraries in the Philippines, there is a need to buy books, though now it is more accessible to buy second hand books at a reasonable cost.
Materials and activities (out of town trips, music, sports, art)
3. Willingness to learn yourself
You need to know what you are teaching!
4. Patience and a Passionate heart.
Not all days are sunny, prepare your mind and attitude on the unexpected.
