Our homeschool program is designed for children with all abilities. Whether your child has specific learning needs, a demanding schedule, or you just prefer a flexible learning environment compared to a traditional classroom setting.
Students are given the opportunity to learn at their own pace with each topic that is taught- above, on, or below their given grade level. This allows each student to truly master the material that is being taught.
Our goal is to develop the whole child. We work to build each child’s confidence by giving their strengths purpose and relating them to the real world, so they can visualize how they can use their talents in the future. By identifying their weaknesses, we can help them develop strategies to strengthen them. As each child is unique, we believe that it is important to celebrate their strengths.
We offer a variety of programs that are not commonly found in other schools. Our math program, Rapid Recall, allows students to learn basic math facts while improving their auditory processing skills. Once their basic math facts are learned, they will excel in higher levels of math. We also incorporate a processing program where the students focus on kinesthetic, visual, and auditory drills that strengthen their processing and connect their left and right brain.
We admire and love that every child has specific needs, and we work diligently to team up with you, the parents, to create an academic plan that works best for you and your family.
Elements of the Homeschool Program
Educational & Behavioral Plans
We create an individualized educational and behavioral plan to meet each student’s desired goals after reviewing all psycho-educational evaluations.
The Parents and Motivating Minds can work together to assess which curriculum will work best for each student.
We have a minimum of three students and a maximum of six with a teacher and an aide if necessary.
Children will rotate to different centers throughout the day. They can choose which center they wish to go to; however, they are responsible for completing their work in all subjects by the end of the week. The Centers will include; 1;1 Reading Group, Writing, Reading Comprehension, Math, Computers, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, and Specials (art, music, etc.)
Students will have sensory breaks throughout the day, as needed. This will help students to focus and maintain attention on work assignments. This will include bean bags, swing, ladder, mini-trampoline, etc.
We use a smart board to allow the kids an interactive style of learning. We also have computers and iPads to take tests for writing assignments and educational games.
We incorporate exercise/movement into their daily routines. We understand the important connection between physical fitness and learning.
Field trips will be 1-2 times a month, and they will be on Fridays. If a field trip is not scheduled, we will go to the park for some outdoor activities if weather permits.
Parents will be provided with a weekly report on what the child is learning, his/her behavior and attentiveness. Motivating Minds will also provide a quarterly report card to parents.
