Homeschooling 101: How Now Do We Learn?

The next step in a successful homeschool journey… knowing your child’s learning style.

Homeschooling101There are so many choices when it comes to homeschooling. Various methods of teaching, curriculum, and activities available can be overwhelming and sometimes confusing. One simple way to narrow down your choices: Discover how your child learns best.

No two children are alike, not even the ones in your own home. If you want your child to succeed in his pursuit of learning, knowing how he learns is essential. It isn’t enough to simply plunk down a book or plug them into a computer, we need to have a better understanding of how their minds work and build a homeschooling routine around their personal needs.

A good starting point, in determining a child’s learning style, is to give them a quick learning quiz. Not sure which quiz to use? Here are several to choose from:
