I've come across 2 short tips for homeschoolers in the last couple of days, and wanted to share them with you.
1) Scholastic Teacher Sale -- through January 31, Scholastic is offering a large selection of teaching materials for $1 each. I ordered 10 books with topics ranging from Pre-algebra worksheets to Writing Prompts. Check it out at this link. But be careful, they run out quick!
2) Lee Binz, of the Homescholar Helper, has written a very helpful article on teaching writing to middle & high schoolers. Her article can be found here, and I recommend signing up for her newsletters if you have a high schooler or a soon-to-be.
