Most of the toys in this list are easier on the pocketbook because there are right around $20. You'll find even more bargains buy browsing all our toy pages
  • Enjoying Homeschooling: Tips on Teaching 1st-3rd Graders
    by Tamara Eaton
    If you and your child haven't enjoyed homeschooling lately then it's time for a change! Homeschooling young children (1st-3rd grades) can either be a joy or sheer drudgery--it all depends upon your method and attitude.
  • Graduation Time
    by Beverly S. Krueger
    Each homeschooler has a special story of talents developed in circumstances unique to them. Wed like to look at a few of the homeschool graduates that we have read about recently. While their individual stories are unique, these homeschool stories are not unique in the sense that they tell the same story of an educational fire lit by parents who want their children to be all that God has planned for them to be.
  • High School Online Schools and Correspondence Schools List
    by Beverly S. Krueger
    This list includes online schools, correspondence schools, and other suppliers of stand alone curriculum. It does not include information about the broad array of high school level curriculum available to homeschoolers.
  • High School Priorities
    by Beverly S. Krueger
    Ive been part of high school homeschooling workshops in the past and have found one prevailing mistaken understanding each time. Many homeschoolers believe that their goal in high school homeschooling is to meet the graduation requirements of their local high school. They believe if they dont meet those requirements their child will be unable to pursue post high school education or employment. If their state requires 22 credits, they believe they must come up with coursework for 22 credits.
  • Homeschool Athletic Program
    by Beverly S. Krueger
    A reprise of our interview with a homeschool athletic director.
  • Homeschooling High Schoolers
    by Tamara Eaton
    Even veteran homeschooling parents sometimes panic at the thought of homeschooling through high school. Tamara Eaton shares some practical tips for those about to venture into high school homeschooling.
  • Homeschooling with Toddlers!
    by Tamara Eaton
    Do you view your toddlers as assets or liabilities to your homeschool? Yes, homeschooling with toddlers can be a challenge--especially if you're trying to do "school at home," but toddlers are also a precious blessing and provide your homeschool with excitement, enthusiasm, laughter, joy, and freedom from boredom and dull routine!
  • Homeschooling Your Preschooler
    by Beverly S. Krueger
    Many new parents are eager to begin homeschooling their children rather than send them off to preschool. Ready to plunge into home education, their question is which preschool curriculum should I buy.
  • How Do I Handle High School Homeschooling?
    by Beverly S. Krueger
    Possibilities and resources for high school homeschooling.
  • Learning by Playing Games
    by Beverly S. Krueger
    Ideas for purchasing a new game which is both fun and educational.
  • Looking to the Future
    by Tammy M. Cardwell
    My youngest son graduates in May.
    These words, when I began homeschooling, were the farthest things from my mind. Teaching two boys to read seemed accomplishment enough; graduating them was a goal for the distant future. Now the future is here.
  • My Last Homeschool Graduate
    by Beverly S. Krueger
    Perhaps its the fact this is number five and last for me. Perhaps its the baby birds just outside my desk window soon ready to flutter from the nest. The fast approach of my youngest daughters last year of homeschool is affecting me differently from the rest.
  • Selective Service: Do You Need to Register?
    by Beverly S. Krueger
    If your homeschool son is about to reach his 18th birthday, you'll want to know that facts about Selective Service registration.
  • Simple Fellowship
    by Larissa McKay
    That thought might appall you. In fact, had anyone suggested it during our first co-op session most of the moms would likely have been up in arms over the idea. At this meeting, however, it was accepted as a perfectly reasonable request, if not an absolute necessity. Why? Because we finally recognize the need for simple fellowship.
  • The Economics of Working: Homeschoolers who work
    by Beth Waltman
    The pros and cons of allowing homeschooled teens to get jobs.
  • Vision for the Future
    by Michele Hastings
    A picture paints a thousand words. Leafing through photo albums that acted as portfolios for the boys' assessments in the early days of homeschooling, I began to reminisce. We'd dug the albums out in response to the curiosity our houseguests expressed about homeschooling and what it actually looked like.

  • Taking Charge: CLEP Tests: An Effective Tool for Homeschoolers
    by Larry and Susan Kaseman Added: 6/26/2006
    College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests are a very effective tool homeschoolers can use to solve many problems that legislation-happy folks might think required new laws. CLEP tests can be used to document high school transcripts and diplomas, strengthen applications for college admission and financial aid, convince potential employers and others that a young person is qualified, and support the claim that a homeschooler should be granted Tier I status when enlisting in the military. In short, when homeschoolers need to demonstrate, in conventional terms, what they have learned and how qualified they are, CLEP tests can be used.
  • Running Through Walls
    by Cafi Cohen Added: 8/15/2004
    Like marathoners, most parents who homeschool children through high school also hit the wall. Their son needs to learn algebra, or their daughter wants to study French. It happened to us when our son Jeff reached age thirteen and announced that he wanted to learn to pilot an airplane. Both my husband and I avoid flying whenever possible so the thought of helping Jeff earn his wings appealed to neither of us. Because we lacked interest and knowledge, we hit the wall.
  • Do-It-Yourself Group Activities for Teenagers
    by Cafi Cohen Added: 8/15/2004
    Perhaps you live in a small town or rural area. Your teenager may want to make new friends. Or she may seek an outlet for a new interest. If so, consider organizing an activity with other homeschooled teenagers in your vicinity. Here are several tested do-it-yourself ideas.
  • Homeschooling Preschoolers
    by Teri Ann Berg Olsen Added: 8/15/2004
    As parents, we want what is best for our children because we love them and have a personal interest in their lives. You dont have to be an expert in early childhood education to know that children learn best in an environment of safety and security, surrounded by people who love and care about them. This means that your home is the perfect place for learning!
