TEACHER DISCOUNTS 

Did you know you’re entitled to discounts not just at bookstores but stores like Charlotte Russe, The Limited, J. Crew, and even Banana Republic?!  Please take a moment to review the following links with hundreds of retailers that offer discounts when you present your Teacher ID.  I make it a point to always ask for a teacher discount if I am unsure!

WHAT DO I TEACH?

Here is a link to helpful websites that I personally use as guidelines to teach my children.  They are just that-guidelines.  Never limit your kids education to just what’s listed and never hold them back if they’re interested in more!  That’s the beauty of homeschooling!   Remember to be flexible.

Typical Course of Study for Grades Preschool-12th:

Here is a sample of a “checklist” I recreated using the “World Book” Typical Course of Study.  You can just PRINT OUT the list direct from their website.

Now that you have an idea of what your child needs to learn…you could look for a curriculum but first…

LEARNING STYLE

I recommend you find out what your child’s “Learning Style” is to help you select a curriculum that teaches the way your child can learn it.  You can’t put a square peg in a round hold.  So for example if your child is a “Visual Learner” using Khan Academy may be more beneficial and watching their educational videos rather than reading from a book.
