|General Homeschooling Helps|
ABCteach.com is another website with an abundance of ideas for the younger preschool-early elementary ages, a host of forms to help the teacher, and there are some educational links that cover a broad field of interests so surf and pick and choose what you like or need.
Barbara Shelton's site includes many homeschooling articles from "how to get started" to "how to keep from burn out."
Cathy Duffy's Reviews. Cathy Duffy is the author of the famous Christian Curriculum Guides for homeschooling that were extrememly helpful to the new and veteran homeschoolers over the years. As more and more curriculum came onto the market, Mrs. Duffy consolidated her favorites into a 100 Top Picks book. This is her website which is currently being constructed to include the reviews and articles from her earlier books. A LOT is there already, but look forward to even more. VERY helpful site.
Debbies Country. This site is links, links and more links of homeschool resources of all sorts from forms to encyclopedias to you name it. (As always be careful when surfing the web as links and content do change without notice.)
Debra Bell's Homeschool Resource Center. Debra is the author to the Ultimate Guide to Homeschool. This website contains a number of Debra's articles (hosted at Crosswalk.com) covering getting started, learning styles, co-opting, etc.
DLTK's site is a cornucopia of kid craft ideas, abc and math worksheets, book theme unit ideas (with art sheets as well as craft ideas and comprehension lessons), all free printable stuff (works best with Internet Explorer). It has a lot of preschool, early primary activities, as well as resources for older children. Definitely a site to spend some time with and glean from.
Donna Young.org This website contains homeschool forms, school calendars, subject planners, household planners, printables in various subjects, and planning tips for those who are home educating children. LOTS to look through! (From diploma forms to apologia science schedules).
EasyTestMaker is a site that lets you, for free, create tests and even answer keys. You can create multiple choice, fill in the blank, short answer, true and false, etc., and download them as a Word document. Even more functions are available if you sign up for the Plus edition (at subscription price). Easy Test Maker keeps your templates stored as well.
Home School Central has a Free Homeschool Study Resources page of links for nearly every subject area. Lots of stuff! Well worth surfing through.
Home School Digest In the Home School Digest, a quarterly homeschool magainze, you'll "find practical tips, simple suggestions and bold Biblical challenges that make up an open forum for wrestling through the complex issues that affect homeschooling families." Their website offers some helps as well.
Homeschool Resources Guide. Links, links, links, and mooooore links. Lots of lesser known Christian homeschooling links and vendors (like the Elija Company and The Farm Country General Store). If you ever found it but then lost the bookmark regarding homeschooling, it's probably here somewhere. Since there are so many links, we cannot guarantee what you'll get, so get a cup of tea, settle in for some serious surfing, have fun, but glean with care!
Practical Homeschooling/Homeschool World. A homeschool help magazine that is edited by homeschool guru Mary Pride, author of the Big Books on getting started in homeschooling (which are very helpful...find them at the library). Scan the home page to read the articles posted online by top homeschooling experts.
