The sudden appearance of a worldwide pandemic, and the closure of most schools across the United States, has left many parents scrambling to provide homeschooling for their kids.  While in many cases the schools have taken the lead in this effort and are providing online learning for their students, in other cases parents are more or less left on their own in coming up with curricula, lesson plans, learning materials, and teaching strategies to help their kids continue to make progress academically.

In this post, I’ve gathered together thirty-five of my favorite blog posts which focus on teaching and learning for kids from kindergarten through high school.  This ”starter kit” includes links covering topics that new homeschooling parents can put to work right away in their homeschooling programs (or use to supplement existing home school programs).  Topics include:

  • basic homeschooling tips
  • guidelines for understanding how your child or teen learns best
  • strategies for learning within specific areas such as math, reading, and science
  • general tips for creating a powerful learning environment in your home
  • advice for handling discipline, behavior, and attention span issues
  • ideas for adapting homeschooling to the needs of kids with special needs such as ADHD, dyslexia, and autism.

Simply click on any or all of these topics to learn more.

I’ll be continuing to blog over the course of this pandemic to provide vital information about education and learning to homeschooling parents throughout the U.S. and the world.  It is my hope that I can put my nearly fifty years in education to good use in offering some practical tools to make your homeschooling experience with your kids highly successful and rewarding!


For more information on helping your child learn according to his strengths and abilities, see my best-selling book:  In Their Own Way: Discovering and Encouraging Your Child’s Multiple Intelligences.  For hundreds of learning strategies that you can incorporate into your home school, see my book Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom, 4th Edition (over half a million copies in print in all editions).
