There is tons of great stuff out there.



We are currently using www.amblesideonline.org and www.oldfashionededucation.com. They are both Christian and cover K-12th grades.

A good place to get information is www.homeschoolreviews.com. You can look up reviews about different curriculum, If you go to their homeschool discussion forum you can ask questions or just browse and read other's opinions on what they have used.

Hi Sarah,
I have turned to an elementary curriculum that you can buy from a book store and add in some of the workbooks that you can get from Wal-Mart.I use Everything your_ grader should know. You can also come across these on e-bay. I found them to be acceptable and include fun and educational activities. You can use the Bible for a class also and ask the Sunday school teacher if they can order you some workbooks extra to assist you in your quest to keep God in your schooling. If I can be any more help, just let me know.

I homeschool my 7 and 10 yo. We've used Sonlight for 5 years and *love* it. I also highly recommend Math U See. Also look at Supercharged Science; great stuff and *lots* of fun! If you can, find a homeschool convention in your area and go visit it. They're going on all over atm. It's an excellent opportunity to see lots of curriculum in one place.

I'm sure you are getting lots of responses for good internet resources (we use RainbowResource.com almost exclusively), but I would also advise you to join one or two local homeschool networks. A simple search that includes your state or even zip code should turn up some blogs, groups and e-newsletters that will keep you informed of resources and events near you. Large, internationally-known sites are great, but you'll need some sources close to home, too.

Google Lesson Pathways. They have just made the site FREE for all. It is wonderful.

I just started 2weeks ago! I have found so wonderful is the free websites that reads to the child. Like for spelling we use spellingcity.com, it teaches, tests, and they play games. Another spelling one we use is KidsSpell.com, this teaches, plays fun learning games, and tests them. We use kidshealth.org for science and health this is a wonderful website there a variety of pictures, a few worksheets, kid oriented movies, and you can print any of the sheets off. On this site there are sections for Kids, Teens, and Parents. I love this one we have used it the most. For more Science you can go to Houghton Mifflin .com and go to their eduplace.com/kids and they have fun games related to Social Studies/Science/Math/English they are related to grade level and their books but I research them to see which suits or lesson better.

nasa.gov, free.ed.gov, http://www.archives.gov/education/consti..., For the fourth grader you can use this to learn the states....http://www.netstate.com/states/intro/me_..., /www.teachervision.fen.com I can give you so many more I have a fourth grader. if you need a good grammer site just message me, I have quite a few. good luck *B*

I found two books at my local library with lots of educational sites. The Ultimate Book of Homeschooling Ideas by Linda Dobson has books you can find at your library, educational games and other ideas, and lists of websites. The other book is Homeschool Your Child for Free, by Laura Maery Gold and Joan Zielinski, which has just come out with a second edition available in August. It's sold at Barnes and Noble for $15.00 and also at www.hsfree.com. Hope these help. These can help any homeschooler teach or learn any subject for years and many have printable worksheets. I plan on using them to substitute teach at local schools also.

Christian books.com has a LOT of really great things on there! I like it because you can see samples of each item before u buy. They are also very reasonable on their prices. This site won't help you decide which material to try, but it's a great place to buy!

 If you haven't found anything yet, you should check out Sonlight, they have a curriculum that you can use for multiple aged children.  It is a very thorough curriculum.  You have a choice of 3 different math curriculums, and you can chose what ever language arts curriculum you want to go with the core curriculum.  The core curriculum is science, history, bible studies.  This part of the program can be used with more than one age grade level at once.
