Quick Homeschool Questions and Answers

What do homeschoolers do all day?

Homeschoolers spend the day learning, just like kids in traditional school. However, their school schedules are more relaxed and may even be based around unit studies or topics that kids pick to learn and incorporate the required subjects. You may also be surprised to learn that many homeschoolers spend a great deal of the day outside of the home learning at special classes, field trips, and meet-ups with other kids and homeschoolers!

 

How many hours a day do you have to home school?

Homeschool hours vary for each homeschooling family based on homeschooling method, homeschool curriculum, and state requirements. Because homeschoolers are schooling fewer children, their homeschool studies often only take a couple of hours each day and the days will vary. Some days school subjects will take longer, while other days it’s much shorter. No two days are the same!

 

QUICK TIPS FOR GETTING STARTED HOMESCHOOLING:

  • Check your state laws (or country’s laws if not in the United States).
  • Review parental qualification requirements.
  • Understand the requirements if you’re transferring from public school to homeschool.
  • Understand the difference between school at home and homeschool (or you may be making a huge mistake!).
  • Discuss homeschooling with your family.
  • Review the important deschooling process.
  • Observe your child so you can fully understand their learning styles.
  • Research a homeschool curriculum, but hold off on buying one.
  • Start slow with a learning unit in a topic of interest.

Don’t worry! We’ll walk you through each of these homeschool tips (and MORE) below, so KEEP SCROLLING!
