The Southern Baptist Academy
Wednesday, 8 October 2014 13:53

Comments Off

Homeschooling online is a blessing to our generation because it was unthinkable some years back thatstudents can actually learn in front of a screen, and from teachers who may be a continent farther away from their locations.

Because students are often left alone when learning in a homeschooling online environment, there is need to monitor them and to make sure they know how to use the internet in a safe way so that they can achieve their goal of online homeschooling.

The following are 5 important online safety tips that all online home schooling students must know and observe if they want to succeed online.

  1. Be focused. Know why you are doing what you are doing and be committed to it.There are lots of interesting things to see online. Iftheybother what you are learning, do not give your attention to them. Remember, just a glimpse is enough to entrap you.
  2. Capitalize on the opportunities you have. These are numerous. You have time to yourself, you can choose your study time, you can study at your own pace, you can choose the number of subjects or courses you want to do at a time, etc. All of these are opportunities for you to learn and excel, so use them wisely and do not take them for granted.
  3. Do not talk to strangers unless you are in a monitored social environment. Do not give out your personal information to ANYONE and NEVER post pictures of yourself, especially in embarrassing predicaments, on the internet.
  4. Utilizeidentity protection programs and parental safety features on the computer. These will effectively shut you away from any unwanted sites and possible predators on the internet.
  5. Develop good study habits. This will save you from spending unnecessary time on Facebook or any other favorite social media, and ensure that you actually spend your time on your studies, which is more rewarding.

Online learning contains infinite possibilities for learning, but also opens you up to new vulnerabilities.  Learn how to effectively balance the two of these!

5 Best Videos for Teaching Homeschoolers How to Love One Another!


The Southern Baptist Academy
Wednesday, 24 September 2014 15:08

Comments Off

The bible teaches us that we should love one another. This is only second to loving God as our creator.

That will tell us how important this law is to God and to us His creatures.

We cannot know how to love outside the instructions and guidance of God. He is love according to I

John 4:8. He demonstrated this by giving His only begotten Son to be killed as propitiation for our sins,

that is the highest form of love, He wants us to love that way too, hence He said love your neighbor as

you love yourself. Where there is love towards others, we will never plan to do evil against them in any

way, and the world will be a better place to live for all.

You will need to teach your child about genuine love because it is not part of the human nature, our

own kind of love is selfish in nature. Arrange for a Christian homeschooling for your child, make sure

that the subject of love is included in the program’s Christian Curriculum so that your child can receive

a deep teaching about the topic, and he can be given the opportunity of getting all his questions

answered.

Videos will also help in this area, use the 5 best videos for teaching homeschoolers how to love listed

below to further enhance his understanding.

The Benefits of Online Homeschooling


The Southern Baptist Academy
Friday, 12 September 2014 15:25

Comments Off

Homeschooling is an idea that’s becoming more and more acceptable to parents as they become less contented with their child’s formal education. As with all new ideas, it has a lot

of detractors and critics. Most people still believe that children can only be educated in a conventional school. That however, is no longer true in this age of information. Never before

has the idea of online homeschooling been more possible than today. But there are other reasons why parents are loving the idea of homeschooling even more.

Here are some of the problems they wish to avoid through homeschooling.

 

1) Schools have become dangerous places

 

With the recent news of shootings in schools, parents can no longer be assured that their child is safe. Their child’s life may be in danger from lunatics who just felt like

gunning everyone they see in that particular school or from schoolmates who suffer from the same lunacy.

 

2) Bullying

 

We’ve all heard stories about children being bullied in school. How much of an adult’s insecurities and emotional issues were caused by being exposed to bullies? School

officials discourage this behavior but cannot fully monitor and stop this behavior among their students.

 

3) School curriculum is not commensurate to their child’s learning capability

 

Children learn at a different pace. Some are very gifted and some are rather slow. The fact is, in school, children are forced to take the curriculum along with all the other

children – at the school’s pace. A slow learner who only needs more attention might even be labeled negatively by their own teachers and become stigmatized. Online

homeschooling gives parents the option to educate their child at the level of their intelligence. They find that grade-level standards limited children’s capability to learn.

 

4) Negative influence of peer groups

 

Fitting in and belonging are requirements of a successful school life and a child will try to fit in even if it means doing things they don’t like to do. They will act and behave like

their peers so as not to be labeled outcasts. This need to belong diverts a child from developing their own unique personalities and even encourages behaviors that are

detrimental to their personal growth.

 

5) Children are not being educated enough

 

There’s more learning opportunities nowadays and children are not getting the education they need. The school curriculum limits what a child learns. Homeschooling

parents feel that there is more to learn out there that can better prepare their children for adulthood and the real world.

These are valid reasons that needs to be considered and researched thoroughly before coming up with an opinion on homeschooling. It’s a big decision to take on the education of a child and

homeschooling parents should be admired for their commitment and determination to mold their children into the best person they can be.

The Importance of Written Goals for Yourself, Your Students, and Your School Year.


The Southern Baptist Academy
Friday, 25 July 2014 12:51

Comments Off

Most people understand that goals are important, but did you know that written goals are about 40% more likely to be achieved and those goals which are both written and discussed with a friend have a success rate of 76%. This is from a recent study by Psychology professor Dr. Gail Matthews (http://www.dominican.edu/dominicannews/study-backs-up-strategies-for-achieving-goals).

For the Christian homeschooling parent, this is exciting information. Someone who has put in the love and work it takes into successfully educating their child whether via standard written curriculum or the more modern online homeschooling method wants to believe that the work that they and their students have put into that education will be profitable and successful. To this end, writing goals seems a clear choice in that it will make attaining those goals more likely.

What does a helpful written goal look like? It looks S.M.A.R.T.

  • Specific goals, rather than vague goals are more achievable, such as “I want to make good grades” versus “I want to get 100% on my math test Tuesday.”
  • Measurable goals are those that can be measured through a metric such; date, grade, or certain amount of something.
  • The A in the acronym can mean “attainable”, or “action-oriented. Both are valuable in helping you reach your outcome. Action oriented is obvious “I will choose the appropriate online homeschooling site for my student.” An attainable statement means that the goal is within.
  • R is for realistic or relevant, meaning “is this goal truly attainable given my circumstances and does this goal make sense in the plan I have for my life”. Each person much choose which will be more helpful to their situation.
  • T stands for time, timely, time-bound, or time sensitive. All mean the same thing basically; you put a date on your goal to make it concrete and give yourself some motivation.

Whether you are creating objective goals for education, or you and your student are creating some personal goals, using the SMART system is sure to help you reach those goals more effectively.

Vision for Your Child’s Childhood


The Southern Baptist Academy
Wednesday, 12 February 2014 10:11

Author:Robin Chisholm


God’s Vision for your Child’s Life (where does Christian Homeschooling Online fit in?)

Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go [and in keeping with his individual gift or bent], and when he is old he will not depart from it.” (NIV)

I sat down one day, prayed feverishly to God, and asked for wisdom. My children and I were going through the healing process from being victims to domestic violence. They were silent witnesses to domestic violence that I had tolerated too long. I wanted their childhood to be a complete reversal from the past so I visualized and set goals for what I wanted my children’s childhood to be.

God spoke to me to envision what they would tell their kids about when their parents about their childhood. What stories would they have to share? Would they be good stories, traumatic stories, and sadness/fear stricken stories? Would they be grown adults that were emotionally healthy? On the other hand, would they carry deep scars from my parental choices and emotional roller coasters?

I created a vision-to encourage and mentor-to allows them to make mistakes. God showed me to be their support to help back them up when they fell in life. God had blessed me with parents that provided that unconditional love and support. I have been able to flourish with their Godly support providing confidence in my adulthood. God instructed me to follow through with the vision by communicating to them via text and/or in person these words-I am proud of you, I am so proud to be your mom, and I love you.

I want their childhood foundations built strong as the winds of change in adulthood come. Therefore, they would have emotional security inside to be able to endure and make healthy life choices. Without the negative inner self-talk dialect be hopeless, worthless, and your nothing or will not be anything. I want their inner dialect to be God driven; you are strong, you can figure out how to get through this obstacle with God’s direction, their loved, and help is only a phone call away.

I encourage you to seek God’s wisdom to create your mental vision for your children. Envision them as adults telling the stories of their childhood. Think about your everyday life, what is the atmosphere is that surrounds them in the privacy of your home. Is it an environment that when they are grown they felt safe, protected, loved, and happy in or is it an unstable, walking on eggshells, fearful experience? My goal is that my children will not spend their adulthood erasing and reprogramming themselves from damage during their childhood that God has entrusted me trains them in.

10 Tips for Homeschooling Online: Reading


The Southern Baptist Academy
Monday, 10 February 2014 12:46

Comments Off

 

Your  child’s reading  is the foundation of his/her homeschooling. His/her success depends a great deal on the  level of support that she or he receives at home. Using Christian homeschool programs can greatly enhance your child’s enjoyment of and proficiency in reading. A solid Christian homeschool program gives you the tools and the opportunities to learn to read.

An experienced and well respected Christian homeschool will enable you to follow these 10 Tips for preparing your child for a life of loving reading. (These are adapted from the ideas of Michael Levy)

Tip #1: Read with and to Children Regularly

Reading at home with children is one of the best ways to ensure that they are ready for reading. It also sends the message that reading is enjoyable and fun. Parents should read with their children at least five times a week.

Tip #2: Let Children Explore Books Alone

Depending on the age of the child, it is not always necessary to control tightly the books your children read. Many parents often make the mistake of strictly controlling the reading opportunities that their children have. They may let their child select the book, but then completely take over from there. All children should be given the time to explore a book before and/or after they read it with a parent or other adult. When the child reaches the point where he or she can read alone, it’s still a good idea to not rush into reading, but to encourage exploration first.

Tip #3: Show Confidence in the Child’s Abilities

Children need to believe that they can do something. And, when a child becomes discouraged, it is often a parent’s belief in his or her abilities that helps the child over a rough patch. Displaying a lack of confidence can make the child question his or her abilities.

Tip #4: Avoid Expressing Worry About the Child’s Progress

Parents can sometimes fret about the pace with which their children are mastering reading concepts. If you are occasionally  worried about a child’s reading progress, it is probably best to avoid discussing this with the child. Raising issues about the child’s reading skills risks  compounding any reading problems the child is having by bringing them to his or her attention especially when they may not be equipped to do anythign about those issues. By partnering with a good Christian homeschool program, you have the support of professional educators who can provide any needed feedback or direction to your child.

Tip #5: Encourage Children to Read to Others

Parents are built-in audiences for young readers. Parents should encourage their children to read to them often. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, older siblings and cousins, and neighbors are also usually willing to listen to your child read.

Tip #6: Maintain  Realistic Expectations

When you partner with a leading Christian homeschool program, you will be surrounded with professional educators who have experience with hundreds, if not thousands of other students. These professionals are able to help keep your expectations about your child’s progress realistic. Parents have been reading for so long that they have understandably forgotten how long it took them to learn to read. Children learn to read at different paces and they begin to learn to read at different ages. Parents need to be sure to accommodate different learning styles to avoid rushing a child into reading or expecting too much from a struggling reader.

Tip #7: Avoid Rushing a Reading Session

Children should not feel rushed during a reading session. And, parents should avoid feeling conflicted between spending time reading with children and getting something else done. Schedule time for reading when nothing else will interfere.

Tip #8: Provide Reading and Writing Opportunities

Encourage children to read and write by putting them in charge of the shopping list and sharing letters from friends and relatives. Parents can also help teach children to learn to write by helping them write their own name on letters to friends and relatives. Opportunities for reading and writing development can be found in simple, everyday activities.

Tip #9: Provide Appropriate Reading Materials

Parents should make sure that their young readers have a wealth of age-appropriate reading material. Be sure to stock the home with books that interest the child. Take the child to the library as well. Encourage children to select their own library books and participate in the library’s story time.

Tip #10: Nip Problems in the Bud

A child who is having trouble reading might have issues that need attention. A child that has trouble might have a learning disorder, hearing problems, or poor vision. Parents should be aware enough to attend to problems as early as possible but not so concerned that they create problems where none exist.

 


Michael Levy, PhD, is professor emeritus at the University of Florida, where his teaching and research focused on human cognitive functioning, particularly information processing, learning, memory, and writing. Dr. Levy was an innovator in the development of interactive tutorials for teaching complex concepts (such as those embodied in Reading Buddy 2.0) and has published 12 books and nearly 200 articles and book chapters.
