A practical guide to home schooling


Whether it's full-time, part-time or occasionally, home schooling has many advantages. In addition to giving your child a personalized learning plan, it will also help you strengthen your bonds and give you more freedom on the family schedule. But what is Homeschooling? And what exactly is it? Focus on the subject in this article.


School at home, what are the benefits?  


Educational freedom is the main advantage of home schooling. With homeschooling, your child will be able to progress at his own pace, without retaliation, judgment or comparison. Knowing your child's interests, strengths and weaknesses, you will be in the best position to choose the type of pedagogy, learning and materials that suit him best but also correspond to your values. In addition to academic achievement, education will be more focused on the pleasure of learning. In practical terms, knowing and remembering the facts and dates of history is not always easy. With a living education, your children will retain the knowledge they have learned throughout their lives.


By doing school at home, you will be free to choose schedules, schedules and school schedules. For the little ones, it is best to opt for small apprenticeships of 5 to 20 minutes per subject. You can take a short break after each material.


In addition, homeschooling is also an opportunity to spend time learning about and strengthening relationships with children. In addition to seeing them grow, it allows you to exchange, create a complicity and beautiful memories.


How do I get organized to go to school at home?


Good organization is essential to succeeding at home school.  The ideal is to establish fixed timetables for learning time. This moment will be entirely dedicated to learning, concentration and exchanges. Fix  schedules and a fixed schedule for children will also allow them to better prepare and concentrate. It is also difficult to juggle household chores, cooking and raising children. The ideal is to establish a schedule for daily tasks upstream. When it comes to resources, don't hesitate to visit specialized sites, get learning books and more to complete the school work.


Which learning materials to choose?


Whether at home or at school, learning materials are important. Your choice will have to be based on many criteria. In addition to your tastes and those of your children, you will need to consider the class and age of your children. Nevertheless, there are a few essentials that you can't do without. Among them are:


  • Paper

It makes sense. Paper is an indispensable and essential tool regardless of the method of pedagogy chosen. It takes you to learn how to write, write and do exercises. In moving sheets organized in filing cabinets or notebooks, it's up to you.


  • Pencils

Whether it's drawing, exercising, writing, writing or simply scribbling, pencils are one of those supplies that young and old can't do without.


  • Playdough and paint

Playing playdough and painting are perfect for developing your children's creativity. In addition to helping them strengthen the use of their hands, this will teach them to be more precise and thorough.


  • A slate for every child

Every child must have their own slate and of course the accessories that go with it. It's useful for learning to write, answering questions and answers or playing responsiveness games.


  • A painting

For you and children alike, the board is an essential learning medium. It changes paper and it's fun to write, draw and practice graphic design. Depending on the type of painting you choose, don't forget to get the right accessories. If it's a blackboard, consider buying chalk of different colors and a sponge. Otherwise, be aware that there are eraseable felts of all colors and sponges dedicated to whiteboards. The Des Toons boutique offers a variety of slates, Vellada BIC paintings and accessories at attractive prices. Visit the site to purchase supplies.


How do I design the workspace?


Once you have acquired the teaching materials, you need to set up a workspace for your child. The ideal is to choose a place where they can concentrate to the fullest and where they are not likely to be disturbed by the noise of the TV or other disruptive element. You can, quite, set up this workspace in your child's bedroom. To do this, you need to delineate the "dodo," "games" and "learning" spaces. If space is limited, bet on a mezzanine bed and install the games or desk area below. Multiply storage to maximize play space and have more space for the learning area. For the layout of the workspace, the first thing to do is to install a small desk with drawers and some shelves to put books, notebooks, slates, kits... Lay the board in front of the desk so your child doesn't have to turn around to see it. In addition, you can set up a small library with your child's favorite storybooks for reading.


Home school appeals for many reasons. You will be able to personally accompany your child in his learning. Nevertheless, excellent organization, discipline and efficiency are required to complete this task. Focus on a lively and fun education using tools that are tailored to your child's best use. The Des Toons shop accompanies you in your project. The goal is to make him want to learn and master new things. Thus, he will always enjoy taking your courses.
