Key Ideas And Concepts About Homeschool Language Arts Activities

Homeschooling is not school at home. Homeschooling is a lifestyle focused on educating each individual child so that they grow into a thriving adult.

If you know that your child is struggling in any academic area, use this insight into your child’s weaker areas to find the educational gap. In the end, simply slowing down to spend time intentionally focused on reading skills will be your best bet.

In reality, so many children simply need intentional one-on-one instruction from a loving adult. Our kids need to be given the grace to focus on where they really are and not where the “standard” says they should be.

It is absolutely fundamental that we give our kids opportunities to enjoy books. One of the greatest ways to do this is for parents to read aloud TO their kids.

Each successful reading experience adds up and they will grow as a reader.

Narration is another great strategy that you can use to help guide your reading time and is an excellent way to strengthen reading comprehension.

Bottom line, when you read aloud to your child of any age, you remove barriers to reading, increase foundational language skills and deepen relationship.
