Home educators often come to me saying they are worried they may not be teaching everything their child needs to know. They ask me what they should be teaching at each grade level. Following is link which iis designed to help you make those decisions. (the sixteen links on this page tell you what is generally expected at each grade level.However a few important words of caution first: The beauty of home school is that it is not the classroom.
art and crafts, nature study, dancing, playing, memorizing verses,songs, poems(music)
