Re books that feature homeschool kids, have you read Williwaw, by Tom Bodett (the leave the light on guy?)

We listened to it on tape, and thought it was great. My 10 yr old liked it, as well as my 14 yr old.

As far as curriculum, we use a little this, a little of that, but really enjoy the Christiana Latina from memoria press, Men of Rome series from Greenleaf press, and the Easy Grammar Systems, and Sonlight.

More suggestions added above.

Also, welcome to all newcomers to homeschooling. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. You will find the homeschoolers here very helpful.

Here are a few more links. Some of these sources were mentioned in posts above, too:


The Key To Series: Fractions, Decimals, Percents
Also see "Key Curriculum Press" mathematics by clicking on "Home" there.

Educators Publishing Service
"Explode the Code" (mentioned already here) is available there. We've used "Ridgewood Grammar".


Donna Young's Free Printables:

The HomeSchool Mom


My 9yo son loves baseball. Here are some free online lesson plans we found on baseball math, physics, sportswriting, etc.:

Hope all is going well for all of you!
