  • Re: Considering homeschool for 1st grader

    Sorry for taking so long to respond. My son really liked the Hooked on Phonics books, but we never did crack open any of the other materials, flashcards or CDs.

    I love what you wrote! You are right on the money : ) When you make it real- everyday you make the memory last forever. The applied science of everyday things around them makes it all more interesting too. Retired people love homeschooled kids, all of a sudden they become an important person in their...
