  • Just search in the groups here on CafeMom, there are lots of homeschool groups. Feel free to send me a message if you'd like as well, my husband and I are both homeschool graduates and will homeschool our children. I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have, and I've got tons of relevant bookmarks I'd be happy to share.

  • i found a great book though our libarary...its called "i am! i can!- a preschool curriculum" by Grace Mitchell and Harriet Chmela. This is a quote from the foreword, "The authors' belief that the child's "I AM" will determine the success of his "I CAN"....." its has projects, stories, songs, all included as well as a sept -aug lesson plans.

  • First, I would check with local churches; often many couples in churches home school, or there may be parent groups in a church that get together to home school. Search the Internet - there is a national home schooling organization - and they will have links to local branches; there are many. Check state laws about the requirements for reporting that you are home schooling; many states require that home schools must also take state competency exams. In some states, the home schooling parent must be a certified teacher. Go to for information. a site called 'timeforlearning' has a home schooling curriculum. You can to go any state department of Education site and obtain lists of what should be taught at each grade/age level. At most major bookstores, you can purchase "MYfirst grade workbook" or one of reach grade level. My best wishes to you.
