Thanks cesare1920, lots of great sites to check out. This is some great information!
Looks like you've been doing some homework work!  
 

Thanks for the links. We have had a time with our oldest two and English. They were never really taught how to identify parts of sentences or diagram them while in the public school. We are going to start with the basics in a few weeks and go from their. We have spent a lot of time this year catching them up and filling in major gaps in their education.
By the way, they were in gifted classes in the public school last year. The school spent so much time teach SOL stuff and dealing with discipline problems that they slacked off in other subjects. Also, we bought a family pass to our local aquarium. We found that if we go on a week day morning that there is hardly anyone there. The volunteers spend a lot of time teaching the girls things. Monday, they got to feed and touch horsecrabs. We plan to buy a pass to a different museum next year.  

 

I have been working on Math links today so I will start posting them. I figure that it isn't to much more work to post the links I find, it is nice to have for reference
A lot of these I am finding in a book called "Homeschool Your Child for Free". It is from 2000 so about 1/2 the links are not valid anymore.

Quote:
How did you decide to homeschool? We looked at what are son was learning and not learning in school and it was clear, that at lest at this time for us he was better off with my wife homeschooling him. I was in class once a week to help teach math to the younger kids and saw first hand how little they were learning and how little time was being spent with them. I do not believe that homeschooling is for everyone, child or parent. As a parent you have to be willing to commit the time everyday, be organized and have the patience to deal with your child when they are having problems understanding things. It can also be very rewarding. My wife has told me of times that he didn‘t understand something and she would keep working with him and then she would see the “light come on“ in his face and he suddenly understood and whizzed right through it, It was very rewarding for her. Did you ever doubt yourself? I never felt like it wasn't the right thing to do, but I did feel very bad about pulling him out of school. It was and still is very sad to think about the day I went in and told the school that he would no longer be going to school their. We had this picture of how wonderful school was going to be for him and it just wasn't what we had envisioned. He loves to learn new things and is very bright; he taught himself how to read at 4 years old and tested out at 7th grade reading this year and he’s in first grade. We always thought school was going to be great for him. But he was in a multi age class of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders and the younger kids seem to get the least amount of attention. We now can teach him at his speed. Some days when they are doing something for the first time my wife can take the time to make sure he understands it. Then as he gets better at it they can move faster. It’s nice because the areas that you think they need more work at you can spend more time working on that and areas that they are more fluent at you can go faster. Today it was great outside, sunny and warm. My wife made a deal with him that today he could spend more time outside but then tonight they would have to do school. We also looked at how much time he was actually spending time on subjects at school. Out of 8 1/2 hours that he was gone (2 hours on a school bus) 3 ½ to 4 hours were actually spent on learning subjects. Or did you know with all your heart that it was the right thing to do? Yes
