  • "Right Brain" Curriculum

    I am brand new to home school and have done LOTS of research concerning my 14 yr old daughter. Apparently, most teaching is in "Left Brain" method! Is there any type of special curriculum or teaching strategies for this?????

  • Re: Three months left in school

    Hi Beverly, Sometimes when a child is only familiar with the traditional school setting, he/she may need some time to allow for the transition into homeschooling. This may be a great time to allow for some de-schooling. Allow for your daughter to be a part of the process in determining what direction...

    HI there! There are many factors to consider when deciding on curriculum. One very impt. factor is understanding your child's learning style (i.e is he/she a visual, tactile, auditory learner etc.) Once you are able to identify how your child learns then you can navigate your way through the options...

  • Re: I'm new and don't know what I need to buy???

    What a wonderful choice you and your husband have made for your girls! When I first brought my daughter home for school, we started with an all inclusive package. It was good for that first year because I was so unsure of myself (still am unsure on many days!) However, today we use a much more flexible...

  • Encouragement for new to homeschooling.

    I have six sons - the first 5 attended public school and my youngest just began homeschooling as a 5th grader this year.
