What style of homeschooling matches you
Take this quiz to figure out what style of homeschooling your lifestyle reflects!
When you head to the store you’re likely to:
Carry the instructions/recipe/directions and get whatever it says that I need.
Carry a list I made ahead of time, but I’ll probably get other items I see along the way.
I have a generic list of things like “lunch items” but nothing too specific.
List? What list? I pick up what looks good.
My student needs lots of direction, explicit instruction, and leadership in order to achieve goals.
Definitely! 100% yes!
Yes, but not that much
A bit to get started.
You feel that YOU, the home educator, need a lot of structure: day-by-day, exact directions, to stay on task.
Yes! Just tell me what to do.
I don’t need my handheld, but I do at least need lesson plans or books to follow.
I need a goal, but let me figure out how to accomplish it.
Ew, no thanks!
Children should be the leaders when it comes to their education.
Nope, not at this stage. They are unaware of what they need to know.
They should have a say, but ultimately, what they cover and learn needs to be up to me.
I have no problem letting them lead, but I need to point them to goals I want them to achieve.
Absolutely! If they are in charge of their education, the results will ultimately be much better.
Worksheets should be used in homeschooling.
Yes! Worksheets can be valuable tools.
No! Worksheets are useless.
It depends on if my kid finds them useful.
If my kids like it, I like it.
My family likes to spend time outdoors.
Somewhat or Completely disagree
A parent should actively help their child find interests.
Disagree. They will naturally find things that interest them–you don’t have to force it.
Somewhat agree, but you need to give them space to find out what they like.
Complete agree. Parents should actively expose their children everything they can to help them find their passion.
Which best describes you?
You like to follow a basic routine most days.
Every day is an adventure–one day rarely looks like the day before it.
Many days are the same, for example, the weekdays.
How would your STUDENT feel about lessons that taught more than one thing at a time? For example, a reading lesson that required them to apply math skills?
They’d love it!
They’d find it confusing or overwhelming.
How would YOU feel about lessons that taught more than one thing at a time? For example, a science lesson with detailed reading instruction in it?
I’d love it!
I’d find it confusing.
If someone asked me to “write” my own textbook, I’d______
think it is a punishment!
tell them to give me a guide
would absolutely love it!
laugh and walk away.
Memorizing things like math facts and the states is important.
Not at all.
If it brings my kid joy, then yes. If not, then no.
You think your homeschool day should include instruction in household chores, basic car maintenance, and how to complete errands.
I think it should be taught, but separately.
No, that’s not something I personally plan on teaching
You prefer to “teach” in a larger block of time, complete the lessons, and move on to non-school-related activities.
Yes, yes, yes!
No, I prefer to break it up into smaller chunks.
It doesn’t matter to me.
