Whether you are a newcomer or a seasoned veteran (I won’t say “old-timer”), taking a learning styles quiz will help you understand and build a curriculum around your children’s learning styles. As we all know, homeschooling is not just a method of education, it’s a lifestyle. We want our children to become lifetime learners not only because it’s a wonderfully natural way to be, but because they will need this if they are to keep up in this fast-changing world. The best way to become a lifetime learner is to develop a passion for learning. The best way to develop that passion is to make learning fun, relevant and fascinating.
