I believe childhood years are the most precious ones in our lives. These are the years when a child’s true character and nature are determined. Also this would be period in which they slowly develop their knowledge and potential. Kids are going to spend most of their childhood in their school and school related activities and I believe that their learning environment is going to play a major role in their overall personality development.
I have told in my previous post that we have decided not to put her in school this year because of various reasons but the current pandemic situation is the most important of all.
Moreover, she is just three and honestly I am not sure how she will behave in a controlled environment. If you have been following my blog posts, you would have known that my daughter started reading really early and now she has been showing interest to learn various topics. Some people say she is gifted and others say her giftedness may fade out as she grows. Honestly, I don’t care about this. Of course I will be happy if she is smart and intelligent like any mom but I don’t want to pressurize her in this age.
I basically want to understand about various educational systems and curriculum available currently and then would like to decide on the one that suits her nature the best.
I spoke to few educators about the appropriate education system that would feed her curious mind, keep her engaged and that would encourage her to stay involved in the learning environment without getting bored or stressed. Again, I had this discussion only to choose what’s best for her and not to choose what is the best among the various options available. I am clearly not talking about the best education methods present but about the one that would help her have a wonderful childhood.
The answer for the question why we have decided to homeschool her this year is,
- We are yet to decide on the education system and curriculum that would suit us.
- She seems to learn and understand things faster when in an uncontrolled environment.
So what are you doing this academic year and in what ways are you keeping your kids engaged? How are you teaching your kids this year and how effective are the online classes? I would love to hear from you!!
