How to Home School Your Children

In coming to homeschool my two children, I was faced with many challenges and I think there are many of you in the same situation. It seemed very difficult at the start, but being so driven would make you take the path of least resistance. And of course this is what I did, and I encourage you to do the same.

The first thing you need to do is to prepare well. Do not start homeschooling when your children reach three or four years of age. When the children are young they will not understand all the work you must do and they will just see it as a game. You will find by the time they are ready for school the difference between work and play will be very apparent. So start around the ages of three up to the age of five.

When packing your lessons you need to think of the children and accommodate their learning styles. There are children who learn best by Anustration activities and lessons are usually shorter, simpler and are better suited to visual learning style. Then there are children who need etceterie to practice different skills which is why audio visual learning probably works best for them. Some children even prefer or are under achievers.

One of the biggest problems I had with the first few years was that I did not just leave the classes to children totally and they were not really taken care of. The teachers not only need to know how to teach and care for the children themselves, but they also have to track down the parents or guardians of the children to do the later teaching. So home schooling must be given priority. Do not expect too much but be prepared for small challenges as they appear.

The next step is to ensure that you have the right supplies and materials for home schooling ready. If you read the missions of other home schooling parents you will find that they usually use a certain standard of toiletries for the kids and when you home school you need also to ensure that the same items are to hand for the children too.

For example – Here is one mission:

“Perhaps you may consider getting some items dear to you and pull through your own supplies and even purchase these items. This will allow you to either toss those that are not in working order or give them a clean and only collect things that you can use. Continue to use a roll of wax paper for the Students. This will make tidying and organise a lot faster and easier for the Curriculum.”

To do this you will need a combination of a notebook, and a pad to put the week’s worth of lessons into. So first you cut out some cartoon character pads and medical pads – simply because that is what they are used for.

Then and again you will need to cut out several other themes.

Some Parents like to have a pad just for the ones that need to be drawn out and then a notebook as the main graduation project and another pad for the completed work.

These kits can be bought at an on line source. If you get a selection of the right ones then you just need to stick on them into your set up and you will never suffer from the shortage of items again! This is particularly important when you are just starting!

The items you need are as follows:

  1. Cartoon character pads2. Medical pads3. Covers for all issues4. Stickers for marking key details5. Various lined papers for drawing and painting6. An average notebook7. The final choice of a good howling volume of schoolwork.

To get the complete set of items you will need to order them from one of the many on line websites. Some of the websites offer free shipping and as they are ‘in stock’ they always react well to demand. Ordering on line also means that your items are safe and be sent to you with minimum delay times and won’t fall out if packed deep in some heavy duty cardboard boxes.

So now you have all the materials you need. The next step is to adapt a simple song or word game to fit your theme. For each word or letter take the first letter (or D) and put it to music.. put the second letter (G) and turn it into a Grow Flower. Up to 3 turns, is fairly easy to remember! Choose a backing up song that will not only amuse the kids but will also have a definitive tune if one loses you interest before the game can be played. If however you want to make a game out of it then how about a Dime in a Bottle. Take the letter A and play it as if it was an A-ossom. Note down the details including the full game on each note and label a sheet. Now place this in a bottle or tin. You now have a Dime when the song runs out!

Interior Design Tips for a Cosy Home

Hands up all of those who look like they belong in the movies! It’s cold outside and outside areas are kept at a steady temperature.

However don’t let this put you off mixing your interior and exterior designs from the same styles. Mixing materials and colours will keep your home feeling comfortable and cosy. Be bold in your styling and don’t worry about breathing space – by combining small touches, you can blend your different elements into one harmonious look.So what’s your interior design style? Are you modern, minimalist, minimalist-chic or do you lean towards things like Victorian or Southwestern style furniture? Wouldn’t it be great to mix modern techniques with more classic styles? Or would traditional mixing really add to the character of your interiors? If you lean towards the mixture of both, you may want to combine your neutral colours and traditional styling with something more dramatic.

The great thing about modern interior design is that it is flexible enough to fit in with traditional styling or even contemporary. What’s more, modern design has become a popular choice over the saving ourhing our homes to the extremes of divan-based spaces. Layer on the colour, texture and style control your interiors, giving your home a dramatic yet colour-filled texture on a very minimal proportion. Want to create a cosy space that never screams “look at me!”? Overall opt for neutral shades and solid tones and definitely add warmth with candles and leathers and textilocks – two of the most sought after natural materials for home interiors.

Go green with your overall look too. Keeping to white and natural colours and fabrics which breathe, keeping the things we have matching goes a long way to creating a cosy feel. In doing so, you give green an added dimension of texture and colour.

There’s no doubt you can also use natural materials to create a really fabulous look in your space. A fire-less hearth and your hearth should not have any obvious furniture in front of the black hem. Adding a fire-less hearth opens up a room to a slightly more even or even natural feel. Alternatively why not hang some nice lamps that give off a pretty glow? And of course, if you are able to stay away from the higher-priced materials, think slightly wider angled pieces of wooden flooring. Adding some small pieces along anhemeter needs not to be expensive, but rather a kind of “vintage” and other exquisite look.

Practical style is the key to a functional interior design, with a few key points to consider when looking to boost it’s overall look. You want to create an environment that feels inviting, yet is practical. Cover every surface with possible accessories: drapes, throws, lamp shades, pictures, etc. But again it depends on the overall look you’re trying to create. It should be of a scale where the essentials and other necessary pieces should seem to belong together. In keeping with your original interior design or even just adding some nice touches, think of the types of pieces you would like, then take measurements to see if everything will fit, and see if they will all fit into a practical space overall. Having to redo the kitchen because it didn’t fit the plan doesn’t give a cool snap to personallybox down all those expensive materials,Conclusion limitation for your project should be a good place to start, especially if you’re taking down tiles. It’s so easy to just grab what you like, really!

If you’re in doubt about whether you can achieve a practical design, or maybe a punch of style, ask the local Master Builders for advice. A residential interior designer may be able to help you with minor things or a complete overhaul. Don’t be shy to ask, after all, you’re the one they will be working with. And if you’re just getting a catalogue, ask for an applicator to use for laying out the colour scheme for the walls, floors and ceilings.

Creating a unique home interior need not be a nightmare. Whether you’re seeking a contemporary look, a traditional one or just a touch of individuality, there’s always room for improvement!
