Trying to find cheaper ways to buy books and to speak to other moms that do the same by teaching at home. I would prefer to find someone that has and is willing to sell the books they have. I have looked at sites and am totally confused at what I am looking at and if I can trust the sites to deliver what is shown.Answer Question
Going cheap.... Your local library can and will be your best friend and the weekly hot spot to go to. For science and social studies unit with my kids I check out books on the topics I want to cover. Mine are young, but you can do the same thing with history. Language Arts/Reading you can check out the books also, if you wanted to do a unit on Shakespeare for example you can check it out....So take full advantage of your local library. What subjects does your state require that you teach?? If you don't know then check out HSLDA web-site: http://www.hslda.org/laws/default.asp

Vegsource.com has a home school section that has a lot of sellers on it. I have bought and sold on it for years. Now we are done:-( But I know they still have a lot. Just starting out--I would teach chess (if he doesn't know it already)--start reading good historical fiction and non-fiction--real books. Science---start with what he wants to learn. Check out Ruth Beechicks web site. She has some great resources as far as books. There is one called You can Teach Your Child Successfully---it has a lot of good guidelines. Do you have a certain approach you are trying to achieve? There are many web sites to help depending on your approach. Another site with Beechick stuff on it is homehearts.com.

As they get older "unschooling: is a good idea.Â This allows your child to follow their passions and they learn so quickly it will amaze you.
My youngest daughter is about to be 2nd degree black belt in Taekwondo.Â This is her exercise class and career lessons.Â Â Cooking, shopping.. these are great for math skills and make it "real", rather than just repetitive work on paper.
