To Our School Room!

We are the Stanley Family of Spanish Fort, AL. We have been homeschooling since 1997. We use Switched-On Schoolhouse. It is a computer based curriculum. I love it! I think it is a lot of fun. It works really well for us.

Alot of parents prefer to put together their own curriculums either writing the material themselves, picking different books & supplies for different subjects, using unit studies & so on. There are as many different ways to homeschool as there are people who homeschool. That is one of the great things about it. You tailor the way you teach your children to what you think is best for them & your family.

Our first year of homeschooling, we used Sonlight Curriculum. I absolutely adore that curriculum. It is literature based & there is a lot of reading. They pick the absolute best books, & the stories are wonderful. The curriculum is so complete. You will lack for nothing if you go with them. We are dealing with ADHD in our home, & things that take most people a few hours can take us literally all day. If we ever get to where we work at a steady pace, I'd love to use Sonlight again. However, there are so many materials available, you should definitely explore all of your options before you make a decision. What is right for one child may not be right for the next.

If you are new to this subject, one of the first things you need to do is check the laws for the area in which you live. Homeschooling is legal in all of the USA. Each state does vary as far as the laws are concerned. I have links for your convenience on this website to take you to where you can find the laws for your state, & in some cases, other countries.

There is so much terrific information available on the Internet to help homeschoolers, whether you are just thinking about it, or have been homeschooling for years & are just looking for new information. I wanted to put together a listing of links to help you find some of that information. So without any further adieu, here we go!

If you have a homeschool site that you would like to see listed here, please e-mail me. I'd be happy to include you! Someone recently requested to be added, & I had computer problems & lost the e-mail. If you would e-mail me again, I will make sure that I add you!
