8yr old behind. Let's get em on track!

Postby D.e.c.91 » Tue Sep 27, 2016 4:52 pm

Hello. Brand new to the forum and homeschooling as well. My spouse and I have decided to homeschool and it has been a lot harder on us then expected. We are in way over our head.

The type of schooling we lean towards is Waldorf. While we love the gentle approach, we have gotten to comfortable and now I feel like my child is falling too far behind and I need to fix it. Im willing to do whatever I need to. The first thing to come to mind is private tutoring sessions for both of us to get a boost on reading comprehension, but I want to look into online resources to help me become the best teacher I can be. Worksheets, exercises, advice. Anything you guys and gals can point me towards or help me with would be greatly appreciated.

There are almost too many resources out there to point you towards. I would heavily rely on Google by searching with the advanced functions. "double quotes" like that will return only exact results. Then, you can filter by time so that you only see results published this past year. For example, Google searching "waldorf" "free" "worksheets" will turn up a lot of stuff. You can then specify the time and your url will look like this: https://www.google.com/search?q=waldorf&oq=waldorf&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l5.1498j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#q=%22waldorf%22+%22free%22+%22worksheets%22&safe=off&tbs=qdr:y -- that gives you the most recent stuff. I'm pretty much summarizing a small part of this article https://homeschoolbase.com/free-homeschooling-resources-google/

Thank you so much. When taking on something foreign the obvious is often hidden. I appreciate your in depth answer.
