|Homeschooling Tips 2009|
Many Missouri e-groups out here on the Internet often have questions on them posted about how to keep the records required of home schoolers. There are many opinions out there about the various statutes that regulate home education, but an opinion is just that, an opinion. Be sure that how you keep your records will protect your home school. FHE has worked over the years to put together the information you need to know in order to make the best decisions for your home school. That information has been compiled in the book, First Things First. When a Missouri home educator takes the time to read through this book, they have access to years of home school wisdom and experience, much of which has been filtered through lawyers.
The purpose of compiling the information into the book, First Things First, was to put consistent, relevant, and legally accurate information into the hands of the home educators of Missouri, to prevent you from having to sort through all your fellow home schooler's opinions on your own. If you have questions or just need a refresher course, get a copy for yourself through the link you see on your left - First Things First.
JanuaryYour child is ready for high school, but you are sure you cannot possibly teach all those hard subjects adequately. What can you do? You are committed to homeschooling, but what if you feel like you can’t teach high school? A homeschool high school co-op is a great option for parents homeschooling high schoolers. Each parent teaches what they know best. Maybe it is history, or math, or writing research papers. Even if you don’t know a subject well, you could teach yourself one subject as you prepare to teach it to a class and not have to worry about learning all the subjects.
If you can’t find a homeschool high school co-op in your area, then put one together yourself. Talk to your homeschooling friends, you only need two or three, and see what each of you can teach or would be willing to learn in order to teach. You will be surprised what you can accomplish when you have the support and help of homeschooling friends who are in the same high school boat with you.
