  • I'd look up the homeschooling groups in your state, they will know more than random online people

  • Look up the HSLDA --homeschool legal defense website. They have information state by state what you are required to do. Most states require you to keep attendance records and send them in --the local board of education should tell you that much-- and some require you to keep a portfolio for each child showing samples of their work. Depending on your child(ren)'s age(s) and how much you want to/ can spend there are numerous curriculum options available, from full packages that include teacher guides to coming up with your own curriculum using the internet, library, and even some cable programming. Find a homeschooling group in your area. You will find lots of great information there. If you want feel free to pm me. Good luck!

  • It depends on where you are homeschooling....the first year I homeschooled I bought a boxed cirriculuum from Calvert School...they made homeschooling very easy. Everything we needed came in the box, and we sent tests and papers in for a teacher to grade...It was pricey but if you can afford it, very much worth it.....oh, and please ignore the rude person who made the remark about the English teacher....she's just mean, and I don't let mean people have any effect on my life or my decisions and I would advise others to do the same....good luck...homeschooling is a great adventure!

  • I'm not mean. I just believe that anyone who teaches their children should have a basic understanding of grammar, punctuation and the english language.
