Tips & Tricks: Requirements

Before you begin homeschooling it is best to check out what requirements your state has. In Texas, it is very easy. I don’t need to notify anyone, no need for teacher qualifications, no state test (STARR test), no immunizations. I only need to teach math, reading, spelling, grammar and good citizenship. The curriculum must be written as well. You must conduct school in a bona fide manner. I teach all subjects not just the required ones. I do this because I think it’s important for our children to get a great education and because colleges will want all subjects. We also get the immunizations when the pediatrician says and I do give quizzes and test.

If your child has been in the public school system then you must send a letter/mail to the school stating that you are withdrawing your child with the intend of homeschooling. There are many letters online you can find if you need help writing one. Now, this is information is not true for all states. So, it is best to lookup the state laws on homeschooling for your state. Some states have more requirements than others. You must follow all the laws for homeschooling in your state. I do more than what is required just because of what colleges are looking for.

Review: Geoboards

A fun way to help kids get great hand-eye coordination isn’t with  Geoboards . I love that with these there are 4 boards included so you can use it with multiple students. The rubber bands are different colors and 2 different sizes. The pictures are fun, colorful and you get a bunch of them. My daughter really likes these. For some reason she thinks it’s so funny when the bands pop her. At first I just let her place the bands anywhere to get the idea of how to put them on. Then we started places them just on the white lines in the picture. She always wants to do more than one so I let her do as many pictures as she wants. I do wish there was a blanket picture so she could design her own things.
