HYBRID HOMESCHOOLING? Ever heard of it?



        Hybrid homeschooling, a term many of you may not be familiar with. As most of you know, there is a fast growing community of homeschoolers out there. Homeschooling has become a viable way to educate your child, and have a hand in their curriculum and learning material choices. Homeschooling numbers have gone from 50,000 to 1.8 million from 1999 to 2012. It can be a way to better educate your child, due to providing needed attention and usually a broader program of learning.

WHAT KIND OF A LEARNER IS YOUR CHILD?

         There are 3 basic kinds of learner, Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic. Makes sense, right, everyone learns differently.
        
         A Visual Learner is also called The Watcher. He or she likes to see, observe, record and write. They learn through observation. They thrive on pictures, diagrams, and watching videos. Comics and graphs are also favorites. using checklists for these students works great.

NO HOMEWORK!

          This author's personal opinion is that most children have TOO
MUCH homework. Countless hours spent on too much at a time for their age level. The most unfortunate part of that is that after all of it is done, did they understand what they learned?

                  My tutoring group is a family staffed group. Both my daughters work with me. One of them is a pre-school thru second grade teacher, and the other is a Behavioral Specialist, who also works at a local public school.
