"The Homeschooling Handbook" by Mary Griffith
This book is very informative, written in an easy-to-read format. The book covers everything you need to know: legal stuff, record keeping, learning resources, getting started, money matters, learning resources, homeschooling community and much more. It also provides information on rough spots and learning/physical disabilities.
"Home Learning Year by Year" by Rebecca Rupp.
|I found this book very helpful when planning my curriculum year. The author gives a general idea of areas to cover for each grade level and lists many excellent homeschooling books and curriculum for each grade.|
Illinois HOUSE is a statewide network of support groups for people involved in homeschooling. http://www.illinoishouse.org/
|Hope this information will be useful for you. Thanks.|
