Thanks to Standard Deviants for providing this information. All opinions are my own.
I have been a homeschool parent for three years now. I started when my oldest was in 1st grade and we just started 4th grade with him. When you have just one child to teach during the day it is a little easier, but now that I have two kids to teach each day and keep my 4 year old occupied, it takes a little longer.
My 4th grader can read very well, but I still like to read to him and ask him questions about what is happening in the lessons we are learning. Some days I think it would be easier to use a computer program that walks through the lessons with him and has notes and questions for him to interact.
I haven’t found a good option for him yet, but when he enters 6th grade, I have found an online program that I really feel will be a great help to his education.
My blogging friends introduced me to Standard Deviants Accelerate. Her kids are in middle and high school, so this is perfect for them. Some of the classes they can take include Biology, US History, Earth Science, English Composition, U.S. History, Algebra, or Organic Chemistry!
I was playing around with the program and it was very user friendly. As long as your child has the internet – they can take classes. I know my son would love being able to take classes on an iPad. There is teacher and student area so you can see how your child is doing.
I love how each class is set up. They pick the class and watch the video. On the side of the video is a scrolling transcript of the class. Plus they can even take notes by coping and pasting part of the transcripts into the notes section.
This will free up some of your time during the homeschool day. No more lesson planning and grading, they do it all for you! Your child is still getting a great education and you know exactly how they are doing and what they are learning.
A single SD Accelerate subject covers an entire year’s worth of material and helps your child understand complex topics through re-teaching and a variety of colorful assignments. The provide you differentiated instruction to maximize each student’s individual success, while using assessment to measure comprehension and retention.
Plus it is very affordable! At $99/year or $24.95/month, an SDA course is less expensive than most other online supplemental courses, and it’s far less than a tutor. I know when my son is in middle school, this is going to be a great option for our family.
If you have a middle or high school child, make sure you take advantage of this freebie!
