The white board and dry erase markers are the only way we have made it this far in public schools. She uses it to practice her spelling and double checking math...but I bet a second one would be a good investment too.

I love how your suggestions are making my mind gear toward the future. Only 5 more weeks of public school. We are excited!

A globe! I had forgotten all about those. Great advise. I am really wanting to implement her Geography with Bible lessons. I was just going to use maps and such, a globe never entered my mind. Thank you ~ J

definitely stock up on printer ink.

If you can, I used our table-top copier a lot (around $100). We used a cartridge per year so that was a $100 per year expense and kept me from having to buy a more expensive copykey and run to the copy store.

We could not have homeschooled without a dry erase board and markers! The different colors came in handy for Algebra and above to show how numbers were operated upon in a certain order, etc

A globe

a really good dictionary (yah, I know the computer/laptop/tablet can have a dictionary, but the SKILL is invaluable!!!!)







Blessings,
Heidi

I am using the Life with Fred for Math, Time 4 learning for English Grammer Social Studies. Answers in Genesis for Health and science. I know there are plenty of supplemental resources for free out there and Time 4 Learning also comes with subjects I am going with in others...so we have plenty of fall backs. I also have been subscribing to IXL Math that now comes with English for the last 4 years. I use it for me, to learn along with her math homework. She plays a trumpet and wants to learn guitar, and we both love painting canvas paintings.

The ink, binders, paper and etc. is really going to help me know what to stock up on.
She is going into 7th grade and already uses YouTube as much as she can. The child gets an idea and runs with it. Debates with her dad on how to train a horse and non-stop, or trying to tell him how to fix equipment. She also has plenty of science and biology right here on our farm...

Thank you for the suggestions. It will help me figure out how much space I am going to need for storage too. ~ Julie

If your child will be in jr high or high school you can call your local school district and ask them what classes are required. ..usually your curriculum will have an outline on the courses that need to be taken ..also one of the best things that helped me was learning my child's learning style

delia* believe in yourself and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish

its only considered failure when you quit trying

That's a little hard to say without knowing your state laws.

As for supplies we go through plenty of pencils, colored pencils, paper, notebooks, ink for the printer so those might be something's to think about stocking up on. Oh and binders. What curriculum did you decide on?

Hi, as I said in my intro to the team I am new to the homeschool experience. I have gotten my curriculum figured out ( enough to start). I know I need to sign up with HSDLA. our church cover has us setting up with our grades and attendance website.

What am I missing? The obvious is what she is going to study, where and when is covered. What are some of the unknowns I need to look for.

What type of school supplies should I stock up on when we have our tax free weekend?

What are some of the " wish someone would have told me about this before" experiences...good or bad.

I am a total list person when it comes to something new. I tend to go overboard until I totally get it. I was in the Air Force for over 10 years and had to keep a bag packed...I think you can see how it has carried over into this life.

Any help will be greatly appreciated....and a few laughs or head shakes may be good relief for everyone. Thanks, Julie
