Choosing the Right Homeschooling Curriculum

Maths@2x

When considering homeschooling it is important to understand that there is no set or standardised homeschooling curriculum, however there are requirements which every registered homeschooling student must meet. These include core literacy and numeracy topics, as well as a variety of history, science and other subjects. Many states have their registration linked to the national curriculum or state variations of this. The content below covers everything you need to guide you through the process of choosing a homeschool curriculum.

There is a vast variety of methods for homeschooling, enabling homeschool parents to choose the curriculum by which they educate their children. Homeschooling focuses on the importance of parents facilitating their child’s education by connecting materials, project based tasks and curricula with each child’s interests together with establishing an environment that encourages children to explore and discover throughout the school year.

More families than ever before are choosing to homeschool their children rather than opting for the mainstream school system. Homeschooling students enjoy the ability to learn outside of the classroom or even the home, often learning in groups and in the community, exploring libraries, museums, universities and many more interesting locations. Parents provide the guidance for their education, rather than a school. EP homeschool parents and caregivers cover the full curriculum, enjoy community activities, homeschool group outings, outdoor exploration and travel. All of which are part of a well-rounded educational experience.

Because homeschool parents and legal guardians have the primary responsibility for monitoring the quality of their children’s education by finding a curriculum and regularly reflecting on progress made, this can feel daunting for many home school parents at various stages throughout the process, and this is where EP can help.

With EP you can create a customized educational plan for each child’s year of homeschooling whilst ensuring that your child’s needs are met by the education that you provide.

As many parents believe that teaching and learning isn’t a one size fits all endeavour, the curriculum that they choose needs to be the right fit for their child’s needs. Because all children undertake homeschooling at different ages, stages and levels of development it is important to find a programme that is flexible and able to accommodate various learning preferences, personality types, activity levels, and interests. Some children learn more by creating and making things; others through reading or talking to people.

When you choose your homeschool curriculum, take these preferences into consideration by exploring learning styles like visual learning, auditory learning and kinesthetic learning. You may also need to consider whether your child is a right or left-brain learner when choosing a curriculum. If your child has a strong interest or does not respond well to typical school work, you may want to try interest-led learning. You can choose resources that support the interest, and that might not include choosing a formal homeschool curriculum.

One of the requirements when registering for homeschooling is to provide a curriculum plan. This can be a duplicate of the national or state curriculums, or parents may like to take a more custom approach (provided core requirements are covered). This doesn’t need to be a day-by-day, hour-by-hour plan, but will more likely take the form of subjects, literature choices and resources.

When making your choice it is important to consider the following:

• What is my child’s learning style
• How many hours per day/days per week do I plan on teaching?
• What is my teaching philosophy? e.g. Charlotte Mason School of Thought
• What type of scheduling will best suit my child’s learning style?
• How flexible do I want to be with my scheduling?
• Which subjects am I comfortable teaching, and which will I need to seek additional support for?
• Which learning resources will I need to buy in order to deliver this curriculum?
• Am I looking for a more creative, outdoor or academic approach? Which would best suit my child?
• Does my child have any special needs?
• What resources will I need access to and where can I find them?

EP offers expert smart lessons in all subject areas from Year 5 through high school in meeting the requirements of their specific homeschooling curriculum or method, including Charlotte Mason, Montessori, Unschooling and homeschooling with Unit Standards. EP provides fun, engaging, challenging and thought provoking activities designed and scaffolded to increase intrinsic motivation and independent learning.

EP smart lessons are tailored to your child’s year level and abilities, and continuously adapt over time as your child progresses. At the end of every session you’ll receive a report which shows your child’s progress and can form part of your homeschooling records.

Once you find a curriculum for your childs year of homeschooling EP can take over from there!

Levelled literacy and literature resources blend differentiation with fun, project based content to build critical thinking and fluent communication skills.

Feedback from parents using EP

“My girls just love Education Perfect which is ideal for Home schooling. They love that they can log in and start their work and know exactly when it is due. They can send me messages which I can respond to and are progressing in leaps and bounds.”

“Education Perfect not only met, but exceeded any expectation I could have had for an engaging Home Schooling platform. Not only am I able to remain hands-on with my children’s work and add lessons they love, but I can monitor their activity in real-time without standing over their shoulder.”
