3.3 Preschool and Kindergarten: Article – “A Homeschool Curriculum for Preschool and Kindergarten”

This article is one of the best on the subject and validates the worth of an enriched home environment with traditional play and child-rearing practices. If you have lots of books, puzzles, music (traditional childhood and classical), modeling clay, jump ropes and such, you probably have the materials already!

There are more than one such student-built tiny house projects, mostly by teenage high school boys, but at least one girl! Here is a graduate student with a new twist – he began with a school bus to comply with local codes. How would you like your student to have a place to live after he finishes whatever schooling he chooses?

3.5 English: Style for Students Online

In addition to the English usage and grammar guide, diligent students in middle school and up will appreciate the opportunity to learn on their own from the self-study units on the finer points of English. Many famous figures throughout the years have been their own best teachers.
