Take a moment to think back to those early days of homeschooling. What were you feeling? Anxiety? Intimidation? Fear? Worry? Self-doubt? Joy? Excitement? A mix of all those things and more?
That's what I remember feeling; frightened and nervous, yet excited to be embarking on a new journey with my children. A journey where I was the captain of a brand new ship, ready to set sail upon the unchartered waters of home education.
I think that goes for every parent. We're all a bit unsteady on our feet, until our "sea legs" develop that is. We wonder if we're doing the right thing. If our children will learn all that they need to. How do we handle the dreaded "S" word--socialization? What curriculum to choose, field trips, etc.
Let's face it; the early days of homeschooling can be downright stressful!
Thankfully, we don't have to go at it alone. Now, with the help of the helpful e-course, The ABC's of Homeschooling by Knowledge Quest's Terri Johson, new homeschooling parents can learn how to successfully navigate the sometimes choppy waters of homeschooling with ease.
Terri Johnson, a mother with 11 years of homeschooling experience under her belt and successful curriculum entrepreneur, lavishes course participants with the wealth of her wisdom and expertise in a friendly, easy-going manner.
The ABC's of Homeschooling is an information-packed, 26 week e-course conveniently delivered to your inbox. Each weekly lesson covers a specific aspect of homeschooling and includes simple "action steps" to put your knowledge into immediate practice.
Lesson topics include:
- Developing your personal education philosophy (why you're homeschooling in the first place and what you hope to achieve through home education)
- Choosing the right curriculum
- Assessing your children's individual learning styles
- Coordinating field trips that are not only fun, but provide significant educational impact
- Nature Study and Science
- Phonics, Spelling and Reading
- Making Math fun
- ...and a whole lot more!
The ABC's of Homeschooling costs just $10 a month for 6 months (which breaks down to $2.30 per lesson). Not too shabby, especially when you consider that the course is not only an investment in your child's education, but in your sanity as well. ;o)
And while much--if not all--of the course information could be obtained through the library, online research and lengthy discussions with seasoned homeschoolers, there's something very convenient about having it all delivered to you in bite-sized pieces each week.
If you're considering home education, do yourself a huge favor and check out The ABC's of Homeschooling. You won't be disappointed!
But wait; If you're a veteran homeschooling mom, this e-course can help you, too. From gaining a fresh vision, to reminding you why you got into this whole crazy thing to begin with (hee hee), The ABC's of Homeschooling can meet both of those needs in spades.
I highly recommend The ABC's of Homeschooling, and give it two happy thumbs up! :o)
