Encouraging Their Dreams

One of the best things about home-school is how you can take your child's interests and really study them together. My son is in love with science, so we can go way deeper then the normal second grade science class would. In public school all the children are taught the exact same thing, with no regard to what they really love. If your child has a interest in something its a great opportunity to teach them all you can about that subject.


 My daughter is in love with dolphins and has been for some time. She says that when she grows up she wants to be a dolphin trainer. Anything I teach her about dolphins she soaks right up. Right now we are starting to put together a folder about dolphins. If your child is into a certain animal this is a easy and cheap little project to put together. Just start by gathering some of those cheap little three ringed folders. Get on the internet and gather some facts about the animal the depending on the age of your child you can put together little work pages for them, have them draw the animal, maybe print out a coloring page, and put a fact on each page. When they are done they have a fun little notebook about their favorite animal!
