Homeschooling is becoming more popular due to the current pandemic. However, many families have been homeschooling for awhile now. Homeschooling used to be the norm for families and it’s amazing how many are going back to the basics of educating their own children.
It can be a difficult process, especially for those embarking on this journey for the first time. The awesome thing about homeschooling is the flexibility and opportunity to teach to your child’s learning style. You don’t have to be an expert to teach your child well. You just need to be willing to put in the work and be resourceful. As an educational consultant, I’m here to guide with the K-8 students’ learning process by supporting educators and families who teach this age group.
The preschool age group (0-3 years) is a critical, foundational time. Children can learn so much during this time especially through play and reading to them. I’ve been reading to my son before birth, singing inspirational, sound-mind songs, and a lot of play to encourage his God-given abilities and support his development. At almost 10 months, he sings a lot, learns quickly, follows directions, playing, and enjoys flipping through his books. I use resources I’ve created, my experience, and other resources out there to support his growth and development. You can check some out on my resources section.
I use my debut book, Abiidii Igbo Alphabet: An Igbo English Learning Book as his second language resource. I also enjoy using the Priddy books collection (on Amazon) to teach about animals, colors, and more. I am currently writing a preschool curriculum that I’ve been using various aspects of to teach my son. I will finish in the near future so it can be an available resource for families with children ages 0-3. The great thing about it, is that it connects all the objectives (content areas), builds every week, and can be used throughout the first three years of their life! So keep an eye out on the resources I will have available for young children because they are the foundation we must build up well so they can be productive for the future.
