I thought I would make a list of some fun homeschool links for everyone.
Pizza Hut has a program where students can earn pan pizzas for reading books. We have already gotten our material in and are ready to start in October.
Letter of the week is one of my favorite programs for preK/K. Katrina has put together some awesome book lists and ideas for teaching letters/sounds/shapes/colors. She also has a great list of journaling ideas for older students. We are going to start using the journaling ideas in January with G.
Resources for homeschooling for free. I haven't checked all of these out but there are lots that I like here.
These are a few homeschooling sites that I visit.
Also I have on my list of websites
There is an active alternative learning forum that I love. Amitymama is probably where I spend most of my time on the web. It is a great alternative site with lots of great info on a variety of subjects.
This is one of my favorite sites. Lots of CM info and great schedules and book recommendations. We are using their science curriculum this year and really love it. Also we are using a geography curriculum that is recommended from their site. Lots of good info there.
If you haven't heard about www.paperbackswap.com yet it is a great site. You list various paperback books that you are ready to get rid of. When someone requests a book you have. You mail it to them. You pay the shipping cost. For each book you mail you get one credit. You then spend the credits on books you want. I have gotten several books for school this year through this site. It is great because you can set up a wishlist of books you are looking for. They will email you when a book is available and you can decide if you want it or not. If you don't have credits you can purchase them for a modest amount (less than the cost of a paperback). If you sign up please use my referral code robindfolwer.
