My oldest dd wil not trun 4 till May but I am already seriously thinking about home schooling her. Any advice or info you can give me will really help. I'm not very good at researching all this and to be honest I'm quite lost. I live in Ga incase anybody else does and can explain the laws to me. Thanks in advance.

Quoting bren_darlene:

Hello,  here is a list of homeschool articles, curriculum companies, magazines, books, ect.. that I send to new home educators.  :)

A few articles:        



A few books:


The Well-Trained Mind
,  A Guide to Classical Education at Home
  by Jessie Wise and Susan Wise Bauer.  This book is GREAT!!  It is a very rigorous way of study but I have
taken many examples from it even though we are fairly relaxed.  It is worth the money for sure!  It goes from Pre-K to 12th.


The Successful
Homeschool Family Handbook 
Raymond and Dorothy Moore.  I recommend
this to every new home educating parent. 
I first read it in ’94 and have read it numerous times.  I recently gave it to one of my daughter in
laws J



Educating the Whole
Hearted Child
 by: Clay and Sally
Clarkson.  Good book on the Charlotte
Mason style of education.  I learned a
lot from it.


A Charlotte Mason
Companion – Personal Reflections on the Gentle Art of Learning

Right Choice


 Here is a list of
different curriculums.  There are many.


ABeka  I like ABeka a lot.


Sonlight (one of
my favorites)

grades and geography. Liked them J


Bob Jones




Catalogs!!!  I love looking through catalogs and finding
books and products that I want. First I always checked to see if the library
has books that we would only need once or twice.  The library will become your best
friend.  LOL.  I love my libraries. Just look at their page
for a request a catalog or email them if you can’t find it.


 Rainbow Resource.  One of the BEST. It is HUGE!!!


Christian Book

different catalogs:
