Homeschool

I have been homeschooling (road school) my sons for about one year now. However, my career has been in teaching all of my adult life, most of it in special education.  On this page I will share links to posts, pages and websites that may be helpful to you as you home school your children.

Here are useful recipes for teachers.  Let me know if you have other recipes that you would like to share with others.

This is a large list of online resources, mostly fun for kids, that I compiled a number of years ago.  I have not had a chance yet to double check all the links, but I will as soon as I get a chance.  If you find a broken link please comment on the spreadsheet so I can remove it or fix it.

These are resources for teachers or for students to use when researching.  Please comment if you find broken links so I can fix them.

Dolch List – these are words that are most commonly found in the written language.  Memorizing these words can help a student learn to read more fluently.  (Along with phonics instruction)

cards to play concentration with states of matter and atoms

Slide show of places my boys and I visited on the Lewis and Clark Trail.
