In our area, in the middle of Wayne National Forest, hunting is such a part of the culture that the first day of gun season, the Monday after Thanksgiving, is known in the schools as "Deer Day." That day is written into the school calendar as a day when schools are closed so students can go hunting. Naturally, my son wanted to join in, so he took the required "Hunters Safety Course" offered by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. He earned a 98% on the test. His internal motivation was obviously stronger than anything we could do or offer.
In first grade it is essential that your child begin basic math facts. Most schools do a good job at starting basic math facts. From second grade to third, you need to ensure that your child becomes an expert on adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing all numbers between 0 and 12. You may need to get copies of worksheets or flash cards. This is the MOST important step that you can do to start the groundwork of your student being successful in math. Too many children today go through the first 6 grades lacking these skills. Without it, they cannot do fractions or any other higher concept. At the fourth grade level, and perhaps earlier, your child needs to be an expert on fractions. Anything and everything. Again, worksheets and extra instruction are probably a must. This will be an impossible task if your child has not followed through on tip #5 above.
Teaching children to learn to read at home can be much like teaching them to learn to read in the classroom. The key to success is developing a reading program that takes advantage of all available resources and one that is geared toward the learning style of the child. The good news is that there are many reading resources available to help homeschooling educators present fresh and interesting material to new students while they learn to read.
