Take a Sneak Peek at Homeschooling This Summer!
So you’re thinking about starting to homeschool next fall, but you’re still not sure. How about taking a sneak peek at homeschooling this summer to help you make the decision?
What Is a Homeschool Sneak Peek?
Glad you asked! It’s a homeschool summer session trial to help you get a feel for homeschooling without the worry of doing it for real.
Choose one subject and do it over the summer.
Lots of options are available from which to choose:
- Catch-up or refresh—When your child is behind in a subject or wants to improve skills, choose that one.
- Head-start for next year—Choose something you want to work on ahead of time that will help whether you choose to homeschool or not.
- Off the typical academic track—Find a topic your student likes but isn’t typically offered in public school.
- Whatever you and your student find and want to try!
Here are some ideas for simple homeschool mini-mesters!
- Study a subject to improve skills.
- Investigate a topic not covered in school.
- Try a multi-level history or science course with all of your children.
- Read lots of great books in a literature-based course.
It’s a Stress-Free, Fail-Proof, and Fun Trial!
All you have to lose is some time and the cost of the homeschool curriculum for your summer homeschool adventure.
- If your children have been in public school, you have an advantage—They’re already used to schedules and the school routine.
- If they want you to teach them at home, they are ready, willing and able to get started.
- At the worst, your children will have learned something over the summer break.
- You will probably learn you are far more capable of teaching than you thought.
- It will be an adventure, for sure.
