The idea of Unit Studies as a style of homeschooling makes a tremendous amount of sense. Studying one particular “unit” over the course of all relevant subjects, depending on your child’s grade level, does more than just instill knowledge. It helps to satisfy curiosity, teach organization of depth of research, and could be a great way to stay on track, especially for those children who are just naturally busy.
Much like many of the other homeschooling styles, the Montessori homeschooling style focuses on allowing children to learn at a pace that suits their potential and development. It helps to encourage a child’s confidence, independence, dignity, and self-awareness.
Everyone has different learning styles, and for those of us who homeschool, it can be helpful to determine some of the ways each of your children processes and retains information.
