Sharing ideas, teaching tips and resources to homeschool in Australia
My goal is to help Australian homeschooling parents home educate in the primary years.
Our Australian homeschooling resources are here to give you the confidence you need to home educate.
In an effort to reduce your homeschool curriculum confusion I have provided resources and free Australian homeschool curriculum guides that will give you ideas and help you get started home educating your primary aged children.
Hi, I'm Michelle and I've been homeschooling for 13 years.
All of my four children have spent their primary school years homeschooling in Australia. Now they have graduated to homeschool highschool and, in 2014, I will have three full time homeschool highschoolers, and one university student.
I can remember the overwhelming task of homeschool planning in my early days.
I had no idea where to start. I felt a little scared and unsure.
I needed information, practical advice and a starting point for teaching my children at home.
I want to share my experience and help you pull a primary homeschool curriculum together that suits your family and prepares your children for the future.
Don't panic! It isn't as hard as it sounds.
Home education in Australia continues to gain popularity. And one thing homeschooling parents quickly find out is that homeschooling is very different to school.
Most of us have the knowledge needed to teach primary school. We just need some help working out how to teach the information and what to teach. There are many homeschool methods that people use. Our eclectic resources are a mixture of ideas inspired by Charlotte Mason, Ruth Beechick and Classical Education authors.
"I just want to tell you that I have spent not hours, but DAYS on your website. Yes, DAYS!!!! I have read and reread and reread every single word you have to say, and I've checked out ALL of your sample files, probably every single link ..I want to tell you that your website is achieving exactly what you have set out to achieve. You certainly are a blessing to the newly starting homeschooler.
As someone whom is just starting out, your years of experience is of enormous comfort to me. You have helped me to realize that I was trying to do too much, and that it's okay to relax a little, just make sure that I'm using good quality sources, and feed their brains with beautiful literature. ..
The most help you have been to me is introducing me to this Charlotte Mason style. I do believe that learning from the great writers themselves is absolutely the best way to learn English. I know with Cindy being an avid reader that she will take to it like a duck to a pond.*smile*.
You have really given me a confidence boost to try this style with my kids. "
