Homeschooling Resources

by adustyframe ~ July 29th, 2008

I wanted to share some of my saved links for Homeschooling. I will probably post about my favorite books sometime in the future too, but for now this is enough! It looks like I need to do some more work on the boys section! I also notice that these subjects aren’t in any particular order, but since this post took quite a bit of time,(mostly due to my poking around on the websites I was linking to) I’m leaving it as is.

This is not an exhaustive list, just some of the links I saved for whatever reason. I do not completely endorse any of them and am not responsible for their content. (Had to add a disclaimer!)

Let me know if you find any good ones here and also feel free to leave some of your favorites in a comment.
