You’ve been blessed with the opportunity to raise your grandchild or you are one of those lucky grands that has lots of time to devote to your grandkids. Now it’s time to consider options for kindergarten. An increasing number of grandparents are making the decision to homeschool. One of the biggest factors is time.
Time to snuggle and read books together.
Time to explore science and to express his creativity.
Time to master skills at his pace.
Time to continue building deep bonds with his siblings.
Time to build higher-level thinking skills instead of just recalling facts for a test.
As a homeschooler, I appreciated the time I spent homeschooling and it created a closeness with my family that is becoming rare. I enjoyed the freedom of doing my schoolwork on the floor, the couch, or outside. I enjoyed the freedom of exploring topics that were interesting to me, so that learning became fun and challenging. I had the flexibility of setting a schedule that worked best for my learning style, allowed me to complete my schoolwork, participate in sports, and work part-time during high school.
Grandparents, you can begin your grandchild’s education with a solid academic foundation using Kindergarten Complete. It is a complete curriculum that integrates all academic areas within thematic units. Detailed daily plans simplify the process of homeschooling and can enable grandparents to achieve success.
“The curriculum is comprehensive, yet easy to follow. The lessons are clearly explained and illustrated, and they involve the child with relevant activities. Each child can learn at his own pace, and be encouraged by constant feedback and examples. Thus, he should never feel pressured or discouraged. There are games and physical exercises in the lessons that enforce what the child has learned… apply some of his learning to the physical activities, and have fun learning.” (David, grandfather of 14)
Homeschooling doesn’t get much easier than this!
