    Just thought I'd share this: Homeschool Buyers Co-op (.org) currently has an offer on the school curriculum and several of his packages (example: the Starter Special is usually $49; through the co-op it is $36.95). There is a $1.95 service fee added (plus DR's normal $5.00 shipping), and your...

    I recently bought this book by Sue Patrick detailing her workbox system. It seems easy enough and I think we're going to try it. Does anyone here use this system? Just curious. http://www.workboxsystem.com/

    My nephew is having a lot of problems in school. He is in 4th grade, will probably be in 4th again next school year, and extremely smart but is ADHD. He can’t take the ADHD meds for health reasons. I think he would do very well with homeschooling but sis and bil are worried that they can’t...

    I was watching something on Cspan about a month ago and they had some person associated with verizon and she was talking about this site called Thinkfinity. http://www.thinkfinity.org/home.aspx There are links for educators, students, parents and afterschool. I really haven't had too much time...

    Would you all mind telling me about your homeschooling experience? Why did you decide to do it? How is it going? What's the biggest challenge? I'd also like to know how much time you spend each day. Do you have a particular curriculum that you follow? Where do you get supplies? Do you do a...

    I thought I would start a thread for us alternative learners because our day just doesn't fit the norm. And what we would consider a successful or lousy day is so different than for many others..... so I will start. Up at 7:30 and wake everyone up. The children hurriedly dress and grab cereal...

    The e-group we go on field trips with has started a stamp collecting time each month where the kids can come and trade stamps and I suppose work on their albums. I asked ds1 if he was interested and he said yes. I don't want to invest a bunch of money since I don't know if he'll stick with it...

    Is that considered alternative learning? We just started homeschooling in August. My oldest is in 2nd grade and my dd is 5 and we just started a kindergarden program, but technically she is in preschool. My 3 yr old goes to a special needs preschool and my 1 year old wanders around the house...

    The first year I homeschooled, I spent close to $2,000.00 in books and supplies. It was ridiculous what I bought and never used. Now with 3 kids, I keep our costs around $500 per year. I now use the library, purchase used books when I can and teach doubling up. I also watch for...

    It is a toss up between math and science. Both kids love science, I'm always afraid we will blow something up with experiments. Math, I never liked.

    Hands down, history/geography. It has become our favorite time of the day.

    Box Tops for Education is available to accredited home school associations, K-8 in the United States. Since I'm up to my eyeballs in boxtops right now, I thought some of you might want to check out the program too. General Mills will pay schools 10 cents for each eligible coupon submitted...
