If you are new to home-schooling you may be a little overwhelmed at all of the different options that you have. There are many different styles of teaching when you are at home. You don’t have to follow any of these styles if you don’t wish to but they are a good guide in case you get stuck.

1. Unit Studies – Is your child only interested in one thing? Well with the unit studies approach you can take that one thing and turn it into an entire lesson plan all rolled into one. For example if your child likes dinosaurs you can read books about them, learn about their anatomy and environment for science, and even use plastic dinosaurs for math.

2. Classical Home-schooling – Broken into three different categories:

a. Grammar stage – Learning memorization of facts

b. Rhetoric stage – Student uses judgment and wisdom to solve problems

c. Logic stage – Logic and reasoning are applied to problems

3. Unschooling – No formal education is given. The child decides what they want to learn and when.

4. Charlotte Mason Method – This is a more creative approach. Students keep journals. They use nature, music, and the arts to learn.
