I wish homeschooling was accepted when my son was younger back in the 80’s. I would have surely homeschooled him. His public school just didn’t have the resources for those who were a bit advanced in their learning. I was told I taught him too much before he came to Kindergarden and that was the job of the teacher to do! Lets just say that didn’t go over very well. But I’m so glad he graduated tops in his class and now has his Masters. It is wonderful to see that homeschooling is now more widely used and here are a few ideas for those of you who teach at home.
Needing the perfect area to teach your children is such a crucial step. Here is a nice list of school room ideas from BuzzFeed. I love all the different areas to teach in and the work station ideas.
Organization is another crucial part of homeschooling. Planning for the whole year, organizing your planner, etc. are just a couple ideas listed in this post by The Homeschool Scientist.
Free printables is must for your teaching, but they can be very expensive to buy. Here is a list of several free homeschooling printables by A Cultivated Nest.
Also the curriculum and school supplies don’t need to cost a lot with this list from the Six Dollar Family website. She has 45 websites to choose from to help you save money.

I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
