For those who are new to homeschooling:
I have homeschooling experience if anyone out there needs a suggestion or needs to vent.
My younger son is dyslexic and he's the one I homeschoooled. I worked with him for 3 years (ages 7 to 10). It's hard enough to do when you choose to homeschool. Being forced to homeschool when you haven't before must be really challenging.
The best advice I received was to "Focus on the Objective of the Lesson". All worksheets and assignments are designed to reinforce the lesson, to get students to learn the targeted information, the objective(s).
Teaching my son verbally didn't work for him. Reading on his own before he could picture what he read in his head didn't help him learn the lessons. Activities, documentaries, and listening to a book were much better ways to teach the lesson. Practicing reading out loud and working on writing were separate tasks to take the stress out of learning via reading or writing. He wrote and read about what he loved. He loved cars.
If you need support, let me know.
Air hugs to all!!
