FAITHFUL SCHOLAR’S GOALS: to educate and guide you in your role of administrator while supporting and encouraging you in your role of parent-educator. We love what we do, and we do what we love with attention to your individual needs.
STUDENT’S LEARNING STYLE
- Visual Learners do better with diagrams, pictures, working models, video, hand motions
- Tactile Learners do better using his/her hands, building, drawing, doing
- Auditory Learners do better listening
All children are stronger in learning by one of the above methods. You as the parent already know what this is. Go ahead and think about that for a moment. You have been directing them geared toward their learning style without stressing. No need to begin now. Do you make them look you in the eye, repeat back to you, do both, do neither? See, you knew it and are already teaching this way.
HOMESCHOOL STYLE (OFTEN CALLED HOMESCHOOL METHOD)
This addresses what I would call the approach and personality of your school and has everything to do with your end goals for that year, grade section (K, elem, middle, high). This can change…..want to read more? The full article is available only for Faithful Scholars members….. join Faithful Scholars.
SPENDING STYLE (OKAY, –COST–)
Homeschooling does not need to break the bank as long as you are willing to be bravely creative. I put in bravely because one of our first thoughts is, “I am not qualified!” Then we think, “There must be a curriculum that will teach me how to teach or even teach my child itself.” And there is, sort of. However, in the end, you teach yourself what you need to know in order to teach your child(ren). Which has nothing to do with the curriculum you purchase and everything to do with your goals for your children’s education.
THE LAST PART- PACE
TIME SPENT PER DAY
This totally depends upon your child’s age, motivation, and diligence, and is why Faithful Scholars places greater emphasis on diligence and character than on the particular books you use.
