Celebrate Homeschool Awareness
This year, we’ve seen an unprecedented spike in homeschooling as schools have closed and parents have turned to new options for educating their children. Although homeschooling is getting massive attention, we know that homeschooling is more than an emergency response or a passing fad. We are proud to be part of the amazing homeschooling community, and if you are too, you can download our free homeschooler badges and share them on social media. GET YOURS NOW!
Homeschooling isn’t a trend. It’s a calling!
Homeschooling is more than an emergency response or a passing fad. After all, homeschooling is an amazing opportunity for parents to be intentional and deeply involved with their children’s education.
There are so many reasons why families choose to homeschool! These are just a few of the top benefits of homeschooling.
- The world is your classroom.
Homeschooling allows you to seek out learning anywhere—at the library, in the park, at a museum, or even while traveling around the world! Homeschoolers know learning is not limited to a room or a building.
- Reading time has unlimited potential.
Whether your family reads aloud or enjoys quiet personal reading time, homeschooling allows you to instill a love of reading in your kids.
- You don’t have to stick to a public-school schedule.
While a daily schedule can be very helpful in your homeschool, forcing kids to sit in class for an arbitrary 6-7 hours does not increase learning. Homeschoolers know this and ditch long days of sitting. Instead, homeschoolers can spend time engaged in hands-on learning, extracurriculars to spark creativity and interest, and community activities.
- You can teach life skills.
Too many children graduate from high school missing basic life skills like knowing how to make a budget, check a credit score, or apply for a credit card. Some don’t even know how to shop for and cook balanced meals. When homeschooling, your child gets to watch you do life and learn important life skills by participating in even the little things.
- You can customize their education.
Homeschoolers can say goodbye to the frustration and failures of one-size-fits-all schooling. All children are not the same and, with homeschooling, you have the freedom to choose curriculum, schedules, and educational activities that actually fit your child!
With an online curriculum like Monarch, you can also pick and choose how many subjects your child can accomplish each day. To see if Monarch is the right curriculum for your homeschool family, try our free 30-day trial with promo code MON30AOP.
