Hi! I'm Leah from Chicago. Our son (Dylan, 3) is at the age where he should be in preschool. Unfortunately, we can't afford it so I'm thinking about making up lessons and teaching him myself. I'm here looking for ways to get started at home! :-)

Hello, We are new to Home Schooling this year. I have a fourth grader, who currently has mixed feelings about the transition out of public school. However, as a Military Family, Home Schooling will help us have family unity and less stress due to moving. Looking forward to getting tips and ideas from other HS Moms!

Hello! I'm Tara and I have 3 kids. 14, 12, and 6. I home schooled my older two thru 5th grade. (I wish I would have kept up thru middle school. My oldest started high school this year). Anyway, currently I'm homeschooling my 6 year old DD who is in first grade here in GA. I love it!!

Hello fellow Chicagoian! 

   you are already teaching your son, by interacting with him, go to the Dollar Store and see if you can find flashcards with the Alphabet,Numbers and Shapes. Keep it fun, have crayons, paints(finger paint too), paper, and other things that could be used for Arts and Craft. Read to him, and have books out for him to look at. Sign him up for storytime at the library, and if you can the Parks have programs for Preschoolers.

Hello my name is Pam. Just joined. I have 3 kids. Two boys 11 and 9 and an almost 2yr old girl. Decided to home school for the first time ever. We will be moving to another city in September and my oldest son has tourettes adhd / add and its his first year in junior high. With his issues a move and new school (late at that) would be too hard on him. So I decided to home school. Hope it works out. Lol

Thanks for your words! :-) I wasn't sure if I should keep doing what I'm doing or spend a little more time sitting him down. I know he doesn't have the longest attention span so I think I'll buy flashcards and other little things and go from there. :-)

Hi, my name is Sam, and I am a homeschooling/unschooling mom. My children are only 1 & 3, but I am their teacher now, and I will remain their teacher as they reach and develop through school age. I'm researching and planning now to ensure I have everything ready for when I have to provide documentation of my children's schooling. I joined this group because I need to learn everything I can about this, and I'd love to make new friends that aren't going to call me crazy for refusing to let a stranger teach my babies!
