Start Homeschooling at Age 2?

by | Homeschooling | 2 comments

I really want to make the best of our son’s (age 2) education. I really think he can learn better at home in a more personalized setting. Should I start home schooling him when he is 2.5 or 3? Or should I wait until about 4 or 5? Alison G.

I suggest starting now by:

    reading to him

    keeping him away from the “screen”

    talking to him in a non-baby talk way

    model reading and learning to him by letting him see you reading to yourself

    giving him access to art materials

    start him memorizing VERY simple things

At around age 5 or 6 you’ll start to teach him to read by intensive phonics. You’ll need to buy a phonics curriculum at that time.
