12 Days of Christmas Teaching Tip #1: Giving Gifts that Pay for College

December 12, 2014

12 Days of Christmas

The 12 Days of Christmas Teaching Tip #1: Giving Gifts that Pay for College

What makes colleges give students money? What do colleges want to see? They want to see specialization. If you read the college articles in “US News and World Report” or similar magazines, you’ll see that colleges want to see passion. What they are referring to is specialization or passionate interests unique to your child. Therefore, you want your homeschool records to demonstrate your student’s passion or specialization.

Colleges reward specialization with scholarships. During this season, give gifts that encourage your children’s passion and specialization, gifts that will fuel their love of learning, gifts that encourage reading, writing, and other basic skills, and gifts that encourage work experience. Other ideas include gifts that help you cope and homeschool more efficiently. It’s been a few years since I homeschooled, but I remember clearly how stressful and difficult it was at times. If you can find or give gifts that make your homeschool more efficient, you will get better at your job. That will be reflected in your homeschool records, and in the academics of your children.

Colleges often reward highly effective homeschools – and thorough homeschool records – with scholarships!
