Homeschooling mother of 7 shares how one online schooling program got her 7yr to love learning again...
Our family has been homeschooling from the beginning. Our oldest is 13 years old. Over the years we have tried using many different schooling methods and curriculum. We used everything from educational games, to different flashcards and workbooks, and online resources and programs.
We have been using the Acellus program for over two months now. I am amazed at the wonderful difference in my children and their schooling. My 7 year old daughter has impressed me the most. She is very stubborn, and flat out refused to have anything to do with school, no matter how we did it or what we used. As soon as we got her on Acellus, we could not get her off of it. She LOVES it!
The first few days of using it, I had to force her off the computer to go outside for a break and fresh air. She spent about 10 hours a day for the first week on Acellus! It has a fun way of teaching and explaining to the children how to do the subject they are working on. It makes the children want to learn.
I also like that as the parent, I can sign on and see their attendance, what subjects they worked on each day, their total progress, and overall grade in every subject. My two oldest (13 and 10) use
it on their iPads, while my 7 year old uses it on our desktop. The best part, is that they can use it anywhere there is internet access. If we are traveling, or visiting family, they can still do their schooling by signing on to the Acellus site!
It might cost a little more than some programs, but it well worth the money. I give Acellus.com an A.
Amanda, thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy homeschooling day to share with other parents about the Acellus online schooling program. I have never heard of this program before and enjoyed learning more about it. Thanks also for including the story about your daughter. I am sure many parents have experienced similar “dead ends” while schooling their children at home; thankfully, there are many supportive and helpful homeschooling parents who are willing to share their own struggles as well as the educational treasures that they find! Blessings, Heather :)
If you have never heard about Acellus either, I found a video that will help you learn more about this online schooling program...
It took me a while to find information about their online home schooling program. Although this program is used by schools, they do have a version for home use. You can find information here: Acellus@Home
