Resources

Curriculum Resources:


There is a vast amount of teaching resources for you to choose from! To help guide you in selecting what is best for your family at this time, we encourage you to read the section of he Guide to Homeschooling in Florida entitled "Homeschooling Options, Approaches, and Resources" (found on our website).  We suggest that you learn about different approaches to home education, research different curriculum resources, ask current homeschoolers about their curriculum choices, and then, after considering your child’s learning styles, choose an approach and/or curriculum. Be willing to adapt and/or change as you learn what works for you and your child. 

Here are some great resources to get you started:
