Homeschooling : A Solution
Our Homeschool Decision
This is my family.
My husband and I decided to homeschool our 3 kids last 2007. From preschool to gradeschool we taught them
To mold them according to our values
To spend most of their time with the family instead of other people who are not related to them in any way
To control the influences they encounter while young
To protect them from bullies
To save money
To enjoy life with each other daily
To follow each child’s pace, to monitor their progress and respect each of their individuality
To give them the best studying materials
We believed in ourselves that God would help us teach them
Facts from studies in U.S.A.
Dr. Lawrence Rudner surveyed 20,760 homeschooled students and found the homeschoolers who have homeschooled all their school aged years had the highest academic achievement
1990 by the National Home Education Research Institute in USA surveyed 2,163 homeschooling families.
Result: no difference in the students’ total reading, total math and total language scores based on the teacher certification status of their parents .”
“ The findings of this study do not support the idea that parents need to be trained and certified teachers to assure successful academic achievement of their children .”
“ In 1986, Lauri Scogin surveyed 591 homeschooled children and discovered that 72.61% of the homeschooled children scored one year or more above their grade level in reading. 49.79% scored one year or more above their grade level in math .”
In 1986, the State Department of Education in Alaska found homeschooled children to be scoring approximately 16 percentage points higher, on the average, than the children of the same grades in conventional schools. ”
Conclusion: Homeschooling works

STEPS TO START HOMESCHOOLING NOW
Gather all textbooks. List the subjects to study for the Year. List the number of lessons
Math - 25 lessons
Writing - 25 lessons
English - 25 lessons
Fil - 25 lessons
Sibika - 25 lessons
CLE - 25 lessons,
Computer - 25 lessons
Mape - 25 lessons
HELE – 15 lessons Science - 15 lessons
Total 230 lessons
Divide the lessons by 200 days (10 months at 5 days a week)
Round off the result to the higher number
Example 230/200 = 1.1 5
This means the child may study 2 lessons a day to finish all the lessons within 10 months.
Make a schedule. Use the HAP HOMESCHOOL SCHEDULE document.
Set up a Study Area or Study Room. Put a table, 2 chairs, a clock, a whiteboard and a bookshelf for the textbooks. Here are some ideas:
3 Learning Styles
Auditory - learners by talking or listening. Auditory learners express themselves through words. They enjoy sound and music. They discuss the possible solutions to a problem.
Visual - learners by seeing video or images Visual learners express themselves through facial expression. They are interested in videos and images. They use their eyes to find solutions to a particular problems.
Kinesthetic/Tactile – learners by doing or practice Kinesthetic learners express themselves through their body language. They are interested in physical activities. They find a solution to a problem by using their hands.
Observe. Talk. Ask your child about the things that seem to interest them
To have a clearer idea take the test for your child at http://literacyworks.org/mi/assessment/findyourstrengths.html
Go with your gut.
