Tuesday January – 14th from 8-9 AM I’m scheduled to be the guest for the whole hour on Prepper Chicks: A Girl’s Point of View online radio show to talk about homeschooling! Basically Homeschooling 101 – how to begin, why to begin, and where to begin.
You can go here to listen in at 8am or catch it later after it’s recorded in the archives. Look for the pink Prepper Chick girl with the black background on the left side.
FYI: Prepper Chicks and I have talked about doing a second show on Homeschooling Methods, Curriculum, etc at a later date.
I created this Resource Post for listeners of today’s show or anyone needing a starting point for their homeschooling journey.
Thinking about homeschooling or in the mix now and looking for encouragement? This post will be full of resources to help you. May I suggest you Pin It or bookmark it in some way?
Speaking of Pinterest, I have 14 boards on homeschooling topics/subjects. You can follow me on Pinterest by clicking here. I’m also on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. All my page links are to the right in my sidebar —-> .
Where do I start?
Homeschooling: Getting Started by HSLDA.org
Homeschooling Laws & Legalities state by state in America; also Canada and Australia <—- this website has been a great help for me in the past! Just look for your state and click the link to learn more about your area.
If you’d rather look into “at-home” online public school instead of traditional homeschooling you might consider something like Ohio Virtual Academy.
Books about Homeschooling
Here are some books you might want to look into… I am using my affiliate links.
Homeschooling Kindle books I own.
I haven’t read them all yet. All are $3.99 and less right now I believe and one is FREE.
The Imperfect Homeschooler’s Guide to Homeschooling (advice from a 20 yr homeschooling veteran)
Charlotte Mason’s Original Homeschooling Series (all 6 volumes) – THIS IS FREE right now!
More Resources and FREE Printables
Homeschoolers love free printables 😉
Homeschool regulations vary by state. I find it helpful to review a variety of suggestions and samples regardless of laws. Here’s a sample Homeschooling Schedule from an Oklahoma Homeschooling website that I thought was helpful. They also have a pretty lengthy list of free printable homeschooling forms.
