What homeschooling style fits your family best?

#3 Homeschool Advice: Don’t compare your homeschool to others. I love seeing what works for others. Some homeschoolers do some awesome activities. But implementing those things aren’t always practical or a best fit for my family.

The method or curriculum that works best for one person may not be what your child needs. Some children will be more independent learners and others will need their hand held. Even your own children may progress differently, and comparison is a joy killer. Remember, people don’t post their bad days on social media. And we all have them.

Also, just for fun, where do you fall? We are True Eclectic.

Parent Information on CLT – Classic Learning Test 24/07/2023

The Classic Learning Test is creating a new standard for standardized testing. Our suite of exams for 3rd-12th graders is designed to give students a challenging yet fair assessment of their capabilities, all while allowing them to test from the comfort of home.
https://www.cltexam.com/homeschool/

Many parents need to measure their children's growth between grades 3-8 and the CLT3-6 and CLT8 can do precisely that. Look at how the Classic Learning Test can help parents do that. The CLT10 and CLT are options to use as standardized tests only for students who will be applying to study in the US, as the CLT is not accepted in South Africa as a replacement for the SAT or ACT.

Parent Information on CLT – Classic Learning Test Helpful information for parents of students taking the CLT. Includes test prep info, how to submit scores to colleges, and more.

Kristin Moon Science videos to bookmark to assist with your high schoolers science learning.

Here is a resource you can bookmark to aid you in teaching high school science.

Did you know that I have curated YouTube playlists that I’ve created for each of my online classes?

These are the videos I assign my own students that I feel best capture the topics they are learning about.

I’ve vetted all of these videos, so I stand by the science behind them and they aren’t “twaddle”--they make their point as succinctly as possible.

I have playlists for each of the courses I teach: Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy and Physiology, and Physics/Physical Science.

These playlists are PACKED with hundreds of great videos from awesome content creators, and I’m always adding new videos that I find.

You can find my curated playlists and subscribe to any you find helpful here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZK1y3IaSeJNtlRx_BwGrHA

Wise words from Stark Raving Dad

Every day, countless children wake up and step onto the same well-trodden path. A path etched by societal norms and expectations. A path that winds its way toward a singular definition of success.

We feel comfortable when our children follow this path, and worry when they stray. But our need for comfort, and our aversion to worry, can get in the way of a child’s true journey of self-discovery.

Our children are more than just vessels to be filled, boxes to be checked, outcomes to be evaluated, objects to be moulded. We all know this, but we still find ourselves steering them towards a standardised vision of what it means to be successful. We find ourselves stifling their uniqueness, their creativity, their potential to think and dream beyond the ordinary.

The outcome of that? Children who grow into adults still constrained by those expectations, unsure of who they really are.

If we want to re-write that story then we need to re-learn. We need to put aside the checklists and the scales and the measures and the moulds. We need to replace the well-worn path with open fields where our children can roam, explore, experiment, stumble, get back up, and unearth their true selves.

We need to re-focus childhood to be a time that’s not about sprinting towards a set finish line, but about exploring a wide landscape of possibilities. A time that’s not about matching up to a set of standards, but about finding our unique beat and individual stride. A time that’s not about fitting into the world's limited definition of success, but about creating our own version of it.

Let's tell our children it's okay to tune out the world's clamour and tune in to their inner voice.

Let’s help them discover what success means for them.

And then let’s tell them we believe they can achieve it.

Because, when it’s all said and done, that will be what mattered.
