Eclectic Method of Homeschooling
Parents and students use a variety of resources to learn based
on interests, needs, and abilities. They may use textbooks for
math, and travel or go on field trips to cover social sciences.
They may hire a tutor for foreign languages, and take a correspondence
course for language arts, etc. Eclectic homeschoolers are generally
quite flexible in their approach to home education combing all kinds
of materials and resources. They use what works -- and leave the rest
behind. For more information:

grades K-4 that builds skill in phonological and phonemic awareness,
decoding and encoding, vocabulary, comprehension, fluency, and writing.
