Home educators often come to me saying they are worried they may not be teaching everything their child needs to know. They ask me what they should be teaching at each grade level. This page is designed to help you make those decisions. The following sixteen links tell you what is generally expected at each grade level.

However a few important words of caution first: The beauty of home school is that it is not the classroom.

1. Each child is unique, and one of the biggest complaints made by teachers is children are now forced into a one size fits all approach which turns off their natural desire to learn by second grade (often sooner). But watch a group of home school children; unlike their public school counterparts, they like talking about their subjects, and their desire to learn (at least in most) lasts a life time. When most of the home educated children reach high school, they are self motivated, and do not need parents to push them to learn their subjects. In this article, one home school parent talks about how she makes sure her children are learning, and also excited about learning.

2. The U.S. use to have the best education in the world, and people came here from all over the world to receive their education. But that is not the case any more. Today's high school graduates can't read at grade level, or do basic math. As a tutor, I have learned that the cause of this is very simple. We use to make sure the basics were well learned before proceeding on to more advanced levels. We use to make sure children learned how to read before working on the elements of comprehension. If one link in the chain is weak, it effects the whole chain. It is better a child learns something late than never. I mean, how much sense does it make to teach a child comprehension when he can't even read?

3. Learning is influenced by the natural development of the body and brain. According to brain research for example, there can be a five-year difference in maturation between any two “average” children. Gauging achievement on the basis of chronological age is therefore inappropriate
