Like:

Where are the best places to buy supplies?Half price Books, eBay

Sharing ideaís on different projects that you have done that worked and didnít

What companies do the best job with there educational materials teacher-Created Materials is a great example

Discounts or sales from certain venders Scholastic has invitation-only sales

Helping out if people are having troubles teaching a subject to there child. Offer suggestions on a different styles to try or products that may have helped you

Special projects that you have done that you felt were particularly fun and educational

Any experiences good or bad from Homeschooling.I was only able to do the homeschool preschool. My kids go to school during the day, but we do a lot of stuff at home, and they are both tops in their classes. Grades K and 2

Any special funding for homeschooling.

What have you done to help keep your kids around other kids (socializing?) Go to the Park and The Y

Why did you decide to homeschool?Like I said, I was only able to do homeschool preschool, but I am a believer in homeschooling, and we do a lot of stuff at home.

I only use A-Beka curriculum. They are based out of Pensacola Christian College and have teachers for support.

They offer discounts at their "shows" when they sell the curriculum around the country.

There is no homeschool funding.

I do it because I want a christian-based content and do not want them subjected to public schools and their behavioral courses and lacking academics. Plus I do not want them around "today's" public school youth.

Homeschoolers have more socialization than public school children. There are always activity groups based in most areas to get together for fun, special activities, field trips, etc.

And the biggest plus, overall, they turn out to be more well-mannered, well-rounded, more respectful, better educated, etc., youths and adults. Plus, colleges and universities have been putting homeschoolers more and more ahead on the list before public shool children since they are better educated and less likely to require remediation classes.

I happened upon this site that is like blockbuster or netflix but ONLY for educational videos. I searched and if you're teaching, say, dinosaurs they have 15 different videos on dinosaurs.

It might be something to look into...

Mine's too little right now, but when he gets older this would be GREAT for car rides or spare time.

Oh come on! Home schooling is not a cure all! I only have known one homeschooled person in college (he ended up stalking me) and none of my friends needed any remediation--we all went to public school. Some home-schooled children may get a lot of socialization but you have to admit that public school kids certainly do too!

Sorry! I know this is a support thread! But this annoyed me. If you are asking yourself why I even read this thread--it's because I find the resources interesting sometimes. I have some resources--excellent websites--for chemistry and biology if anyone is interested--this would be for about college level though.

Homeschool cruises where children learn, have fun and parents vacation all for one great price.

The prices really are not that bad for a week long cruise.

This is an older story from 2003 but still very interesting

http://www.hslda.org/docs/news/hslda.../200305300.asp

Quote:
The impact of homeschooling in these academic competitions goes beyond students who win. Although homeschoolers make up approximately 2 percent of the U.S. school-age population, they made up 12 percent of the 251 spelling bee finalists and 5 percent of the 55 geography bee finalists. Three of the past seven spelling bee winners have been homeschooled. Last year's homeschooled winner of the geography bee was 10 years old, the youngest in that event's history.
And can you believe some people think homeschoolers have an unfair advantage
Quote:
The high percentage of homeschoolers in national competitions has garnered complaints from homeschool critics. Some feel homeschoolers have an unfair advantage over traditionally schooled students since they do not have to follow a public school schedule. One recent article even suggested that these winners come from families who homeschool for the sole purpose of winning contests.
