Grade and/or age of your children: Drake, he is only 9 months old right now

What do you hope to get out of this board? Support and Ideas / Information

Do you have a style or curriculum you prefer? eclectic? I really do not know at this time. I still have a little while to make up my mind.

Does your local government regulate homeschooling in any way? I am from NYC (currently living in AZ) and I will be moving back home next month. NY State is way too strict for my liking, so DH and I will be making one last move when DS is ready to start school so the rules are more laxed.

Grade and/or age of your children: Greyson, 13

What do you hope to get out of this board? Other moms that know what I'm going through. I don't know anyone IRL that home schools, and everyone we know thinks we are crazy.

Do you have a style or curriculum you prefer? I'm too new at this to know, yet.

Does your local government regulate homeschooling in any way? They have to learn history, language arts, science, math, and reading, and are supposed to learn for at least 1000hrs per year, 600 of which must be in the subjects I mentioned. We are supposed to keep a log of hours and a portfolio of their work and grades. No one ever checks on us, though, as the only time they can request to view our stuff is by a judge's order.

Anything else? Ummm...nope.

Name: Laura

Grade and/or age of your children: 5th and 4th grade girls, 2 1/2 and nearly 4 yrs old boys. Due in November.

What do you hope to get out of this board? Friendly ear that understands the ups and downs with a homeschooling lifestyle.

Do you have a style or curriculum you prefer? We are on our second yrs using Heart of Dakota. I'm doing letter of the week from Confessions of a home schooler with the boys. Once I get a new bookshelf, I plan to bring out the Montessori works for my boys.

Does your local government regulate homeschooling in any way? Nope. We send in a yearly letter of intent

Anything else? We've always homeschooled and have changed things up as the kids matured and our needs changed.

Grade and/or age of your children: We're still finishing up this school year, so Dylan 9 (3rd), Peyton 8 (2nd/3rd), Sydney 6 (K), Kennedy 3 (Pre-K)

What do you hope to get out of this board? Support and share ideas

Do you have a style or curriculum you prefer? I am eclectic for sure, but have learned I really like BJU, so may do more of it next year.

Does your local government regulate homeschooling in any way? No, and very thankful as I needed to take off 2 months because of my pregnancy "joys"

Anything else? I love this new path we've taken, and can't imagine it any other way!

Regular contact with other homeschooling parents

Eclectic and rather old-fashioned

Kindy is not mandatory in my state, so technically we aren't homeschooling yet. A year from October we file a simple form establishing our home as a private school.

Grade and/or age of your children:

Ds1 is 10 and finishing up 4th grade and is hoping to dig into 5th grade this summer.Dd1 is 7 and technically finishing up 2nd grade, but after our year end evaluation, she is nearly done with 3rd grade.
Ds2 is 5 and slowly starting kindergarten. He likes learning and asks some really profound questions, but his attention span is about 3 seconds.


Daughter2 is 3 years old and Dd3 is 1 year old.

What do you hope to get out of this board?

It's so nice talking to other homeschoolers, that's what I'm looking for.

Do you have a style or curriculum you prefer?

It's pretty ecclectic. We'd like to be service oriented at least once or twice a week in the afternoons as well. We're still working on that.

Does your local government regulate homeschooling in any way?

No. You don't have to declare here and they don't have the power to question us or force testing or anything.
