Learn how to easily meet state requirements with a four-day homeschool week. When I first was contemplating the idea of homeschooling, I knew straight from the start that I would only do a four-day week. I knew many homeschooling moms, so I asked them millions of questions and did my research. They all confirmed that their homeschool covered significantly more coursework than regular school and in a shorter time period. I knew that this would increase our flexibility and family time. Not to mention that more hours for a child could be developmentally inappropriate for several reasons.
I knew that in public school, kids needed more time; well, the teachers needed more time. They needed a break, time to eat, time for questions, for one-on-one, time to assess at least 20 kids and the list goes on and on. Even with all this to do, my teacher friends say they still do not find enough time during the day to do half the things they want to do for the kids. Of course, this means that homeschooling would take less time and you have freedom to teach in a way that is more conducive to each child vice a group of unique children. Check out this good information for homeschooling four days out of the week and meet state requirements.
