Re: Starting home schooling after a bad start to the school year at public school
www.homeschoolshare.com has tons of free unit studies, literature units, and lapbooks!
I agree with the others who said take some time to just relax and "deschool," and spend time with your FIL. Sounds like there could be some good life lessons to be learned about compassion and caring for others. It's also amazing how much kids can learn just from reading good literature.
Check out the Life of Fred books for a math supplement--zany and fun!
