Welcome!

Besides curriculum? Craft supplies, paper to practice writing on, magnifying glass, I find a calendar set helps my kids.

 Welcome to the group! I suggest that all new homeschoolers deschool (it isn't just for the kids) we as parents need to open our minds to see learning in its natural form. This site is a great place to learn about it http://sandradodd.com/deschooling
