BUilding Math Confidence

by Joseph Grayhame

One of the most valuable aspects of using the Internet for homeschooling is web-based programs and products. They can be accessed from any computer that is connected to the Internet -- either by land-line or wireless connection. Therefore, if you and your child are traveling, s/he can access a web-based product in the airport, between planes, in a Wifi cafe or even in some metro parks and other public locations! What could be more efficient than being able to take your coursework with you, having it as close as your laptop or iPhone?

Depending upon your child's placement test scores and transcripts, they determine the academic level of your student and design the program accordingly. If your student needs reinforcement where there are learning gaps, they can create a customized subject to help your student do just that. Similarly, if your student is advanced, they will place him/her in the appropriate level for each subject. In this way, a student can obtain complete satisfaction and challenge for each subject, instead of having to struggle in one field of study and coast through another in sheer boredom, simply because of a strictly grade-level approach to administering the information.

Dígame en español is revolutionizing the way home-schoolers gain their Spanish foreign language credits. With the introduction of web conferencing into the program, learning is enhanced as never before when students practice with a Spanish-speaking moderator and other students in a classroom setting.
 
Textbooks, workbooks, online games and Teacher Presentation DVDs promote learning at any time, any place and any pace. A one–on-one teaching format is constantly being reinforced with many hands–on learning experiences.  Before very long you are speaking, reading, and writing in Spanish!
 
Dígame en español is the vision of Peggy Mayhall-Brown. After 34 years as a Spanish teacher and guidance counselor, she recognized the void that home-school students and their parents face in obtaining their required Carnegie Units in foreign language for high school graduation. She holds a BA from the University of South Alabama and a MS in Psychology from the University of Central Arkansas.

By Niqui Chatfield

Picture the Norman Rockwell family… We are picturing it, too! The idyllic family life; singing around the piano, wonderful home-cooked meals shared around the table, candlelit evenings sharing a good book together around a cozy fire. Attaining this is a daily work in progress, and though we may not realize these perfect memories, having a goal in mind keeps us working toward something beautiful! Considering that tomorrow is another day, helps us get through today. “There’s a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow, shining at the end of every day. . .” is a cherished lyric from a song at the theme attraction “The Carousel of Progress” found at Disneyworld in Florida. This attraction sequences progress in our society, how things have changed over the years. But what about some of our yesterdays…

For families taking their first steps into their homeschooling journey, the prospect is both exciting and daunting. For families who are veteran homeschoolers, planning the school year is routine but sometimes new challenges arise as their students grow up and look to the future.
Fortunately for both of these types of families, WorldWide IDEA’s fully accredited Private Academy, for grades K through 12, can help support and validate your homeschool.

We understand the importance of tailoring education to each child’s individual strengths, needs, and learning styles. That’s why, unlike so many other homeschool programs, we encourage educational flexibility – that means, we don’t force you and your students to use a pre-packaged curriculum or computer-only courses. Each parent decides what is best for each child. Through purchasing or swapping with other WorldWide IDEA families, you use the materials you want to use.
