New to homeschooling

Hello everyone. My wife and I are planning on homeschooling at least for some years before we do public school. I was just trying to find out some info on the process. We are living in NY currently but maybe moving to TN. Does everything vary state to state?

I would check the hslda site for laws pertaining to the states you live in and may move to. Laws vary widely from state to state.

Re: New to homeschooling

yes, find out what your state requires.

next figure out what kind of curriculum/method you want to go with. You could research the different types, but there are a bazillion, and it gets overwhelming. If you know your child(ren)'s learning style and your teaching style, you can ask some people what they might recommend.

I had no idea there was different curriculum's. I will have to look into that. Hoping to be to TN. Figure that will be better than NY.

Re: New to homeschooling

Rainbow resource has a huge free curriculum book catalog if you call them, and they write their own reviews. Cathy Duffy is a well known reviewer, and homeschoolreviews.com is another good place to start, just to name a few. Or you can even go with companies that pick everything for you, kind of school-in-a-box.
