    on Feb 5, 13 • in Home Schooling 101 • with Comments

    by: Jackie Bledsoe The start to homeschooling can be a daunting task for first timers.  Especially for those coming from a traditional school environment.  For traditional school families there are some preparation tasks, but not a whole lot. Tasks such as purchasing basic school supplies, attending orientations, showing up for meet-the-teacher night, and making sure their child is at the bus stop or dropped off for the first day of school

    by: Sam Wilkerson At some point in time I think many parents wonder or at least give fleeting consideration to the notion of homeschooling their children.

    on Sep 5, 12 • in Featured, Home Schooling 101, Parents • with Comments

    By: Jackie Bledsoe Almost every successful company,  organization, and institution has a mission statement.  Apple, Nike, the YMCA, Harvard, and Stanford all have mission statements.  All are some of the most successful organizations and institutions in the world.

    The Internet is a Home Educator’s best friend. In the past, homeschoolers relied, to varying degrees, on the local public library and the postman.  Now, with always-on internet and smart phones, information is available in seconds. I have bookmarked hundreds of websites in my 6 years of homeschooling and find additional ones everyday. Here is a list of helpful websites for homeschoolers. This list doesn’t scratch the surface when it comes to learning tools, but it’s a good start. When I first started homeschooling, the only purchase I made for my then 3 year old
