My search for
homeschool resources began with a question...
going to homeschool?"
raised eyebrows and seriously exaggerated concerned looks, they asked,
"No problem." I replied, naively. "The
Internet is filled with information for homeschoolers and I hear through the
megabytes on forums and lists that the Internet is growing." For extra
emphasis, I added, "Rapidly!"
Ten years later, I am
still homeschooling and I love it.
Yes, the Internet is filled with pages of resources for
homeschoolers. I found the websites with worksheets and the state laws. I found
the why I should homeschool sites and the educational game sites. Daily use of
the Internet has helped me become extremely adept at finding things on just
about every school subject possible. What I didn’t find has become my
cornerstone for building these pages.
This site is dedicated to giving you what you need to
homeschool better including things that you may not even know you need to
Sure, I will have some of the traditional resources. I will
include a used curriculum for sale section and links to other useful sites.
However, what I really want to give you is a reprieve from the usual and give
you helpful guidance and support. I'll try to add a bit of humor to keep it
lively but the laughter is up to you.
What will you find on this site as it grows?
Tools to help develop essential skills
Information about learning styles and helpful hints
Lapbook creation corner
A field trip organizer
A teen career center
A writing workshop section
And much more
I do want to stress that homeschooling isn't just about educating
your children. A vital ingredient for a successful homeschool is you.
So, please check out the "What about me?" section
for ways to renew you.
You are doing
Take care of you.
Finally, I think it is important to be aware of trends in
education, homeschooling, and in the world, in general. So I hope to also offer
a peaceful place to observe and gauge and discuss these trends.
I'm glad you're here. I sincerely hope you find not only
what you are looking for but also something more.
