Re: Starting home schooling after a bad start to the school year at public school
I think this is great advice. Don't really have anything to add, just want to say that it's awesome you have decided to do this for her! Yay for your family! I hope you enjoy your time working together. Don't let yourself get stressed out about doing things "right", or perfectly. You guys will figure it out!

Check out the Well-Trained Mind forums. They are one of the more active homeschooling boards.
