Homeschoolers and the Benefits of Online Classes

I grow more and more amazed at the tons of resources available to homeschool and public school students alike through the online world.  Online classes have become the new “norm.”  These types of classes afford students and parents alike great flexibility in the comfort of your own home.  They also help to refine and enhance computer, communication and social media etiquette skills online.

As many of you already know, I homeschool our 5 children; the Pop 5.  Schooling has taken on new forms within the home due to modern technology and I don’t want to miss the advantageous opportunities available for them. 

A valuable educational connection through Twitter afforded us such an opportunity for 3 of our children.  Founders Academy offers online courses for elementary children through high school in US Government and Economics subjects.  These classes for the younger levels are designed in such a unique and creative way by introducing the Presidents, First Ladies and how our government works on their levels.  My 4th and 3rd graders thoroughly enjoyed the introductory classes over the summer.  It was great for them to experience an online class and they look forward to doing it again.

The high school courses offered have been a great benefit to our high school junior. She has been taking the Economics course in which she interacts with fellow students and the teacher online.  She especially enjoys that her teacher can “write” on a whiteboard as she views her teaching the lesson in a sidebox.  She prints the notes her teacher writes and reviews them repeatedly throughout the week.  She is especially enjoying the projects that she has been assigned.  She varies in her learning styles and this type of class enhances her learning experience.  

The classes are extremely affordable and have been an absolute blessing to us all.  I have completely entrusted Lynn Schott of Founders Academy with creatively teaching students by taking advantage of modern technology.  Moreover, I truly appreciate the fact that she has been very thorough and has made learning fun and exciting.

I encourage you to check out her site and find out more information on these very creative and affordable classes for your children. I believe they would be just as much a benefit to you as they have been to us.

About Laurie Popovich, Pops of Life

Hi! So, happy you stopped by. Stick around while I tell you a little bit about me and my journey. I’m a daughter to Spanish parents and a sister, too! That means I love family, hugs, to share my 2 cents, music, dancing, flavorful foods & coffee. I’m a wife, twice to the same man, in a thrice redeemed marriage. I love deeply because I know no other way and it has filled my life with hope. I’m a believer of the impossible. I’m a mom of 5 beautiful and full of life blessings; but was only supposed to have one. You see, I had cancer; given 6 months to live when our first and daughter was 2. They’re a product of the impossible. I’m a homeschool mom who didn’t think she could teach: first, at all then, at different levels, different styles. I teach in what in my mind was the impossible. I’ve walked through many trials; some that have taken my life in many aspects, including literally. I have overcome the impossible. I’m a spiritual sister and friend. I love to share and encourage others in life to live the impossible. I’m a daughter of the King; a powerful Creator and Redeemer of the impossible – me - and I can be impossible  I love to…love people…encourage others…being a student of life and the impossible …laugh at myself… journal my hopes & dreams & pray to make them a reality… journal my fears & seek to turn them into victories…eat chocolate…cook for many & watch them enjoy the food & fellowship…go against the grain because you never know what blessing is there waiting for you…flirt with my husband openly because I’m in love…squeeze our 5 blessings often because I’m grateful & amazed by them…say sorry often because I make mistakes, stress & well, I’m a mess at times…I run to clear my head…and…I run to God because He’s my source of strength, hope, and love. I’m not where I was and I’m not where I’m yet going to be; I’m under construction deeply desiring to enjoy the journey. I know you have a unique and exciting one too, and I can’t wait to learn and enjoy the journey with you! Grateful, Laurie
