Quoting Angie:

Check the laws in your state. In some states the school district you live in is required to educate your child. If you choose to homeschool they will provide you with a list of online programs that have been approved by the state then you can supplement with anything else you would like to use and pay for that yourself....

Hi. I homeschooled for 2 1/2 years and just put them back into public school this year. Please don't go hog wild and buy an expensive curriculum right away. Every homeschooling parent I know bounced around for a while before finding the method that was right for them. One inexpensive or free alternative is the library. Mine had theme totes and I live in a really small town - so ask. They also have curriculum books that are legal to copy. Look online for what your state expects kids to learn for his grade if you want to keep him on the same path in case you're only taking him out for a limited time. My state, Massachusetts, education site was really confusing, i.e. the language section was about 120 pages long with a little something for most grades on each page. I found a school district that broke down the subjects by grade so I didn't have to weed it out myself. Ask other homeschoolers. Now that mine are in public school I only kept things that I'll supplement with, all else I'm getting rid of. Also, the junk that didn't work have sat on a shelf barely touched. Maybe you can buy or take local homeschoolers discarded supplies. Also, stay clear of whole curriculums. My boys are both better in some areas than others. For example my kindergartener was reading at a 6th grade level (Hooked on Phonics is fantastic!!!), doing math at grades 1-2, language at K, science at 3rd grade, and social studies at 2nd. An all inclusive curriculum would have been very frustrating.



Also, check area bookstores for homeschool discounts. Barnes & Noble accepts an approval letter from the superintendent's office and gives us a teacher's discount for all school related materials.



Good luck - I really miss it.
