Advice For Making a Home Schooling Curriculum

To compile the best home schooling curriculum for your child, the first thing that you will need to do is get a copy of the local school board’s curriculum. Don’t forget that you don’t have to copy your home curriculum exactly after it, but you are going to want to use it as a starting point and a guide, so that you can find out when you should be teaching your child which particular subjects.

If you are interested in having your children schooled at home, then one of the first questions you are probably having is where you can go to get a free curriculum. Luckily, there are tons of great options available to you online, and you can most definitely find a free curriculum for the home as long as you are looking in the right places.

After you have found the best curriculum for your needs, you are going to need to get started. And that means gathering all the right supplies for your children so that they can take full advantage of the opportunity to be home schooled. You are going to need to supply them with most of the basics like paper, pencils, pens, rulers and markers.

You will also want to keep a few tips in mind. Looking into some local support group is one of the most important things that you can do when you are beginning to school your child at home. Also, if you aren’t sure about which curriculum is best for you, your state’s Department of Education should be able to put you in touch with a home schooling association. There, you can contact other home schooling parents who will be able to help you with some advice and their recommendations.

Are You Inspired by Inspirational Fiction?

When life gets completely nuts and when it seems that things are spiraling down out of control. When our financial markets add stress to our middle class and when folks are worried about losing their homes, well, isn’t that the perfect time to read a truly inspiring story, one that touches your heart and allows you to see all the good in the world?

I think so, and I think you agree. So let me please recommend a great inspirational fictional work to you:

“The Greatest Salesman in the World” by Og Mandino; Bantam Books; New York, NY, 1968.

The greatest salesman in the world, was not a salesman at all, he had given away something that another needed in their darkest hour and time of need. Although the title suggests this is a book for salesmen, or for selling, it tells a much deeper story and one that has been influencing people’s lives and enhancing humanity ever since.

Perhaps, this book should be titled the World’s Greatest Motivational Story or the World’s Most Inspiring Fictional Work of Our Time? Because it truly was in its time and that pay it forward approach lives on today, often borrowing the theme of this tale, while pushing its value and essence into the present period and hopefully thrusting it into future periods?

I highly recommend this inspirational fictional work, and although it has not yet been labeled a classic, I’d say it is pretty close to being so and it is a must read and should be on your personal bookshelf at home. It also makes a great gift and it is still available online!
