Homeschooling High School Options

Ok High School is coming.....

and the two things that are on your mind are:

How in the world am I going to get a Dissection done for Biology? 


There is no possible way I am going to be able to teach upper level Math.....

Relax... I have ya covered.

Stop with the premature panic attack... go refill your coffee cup.... get a few good clean breaths... and come back and finish reading when you are ready.

We will start with Science...
I have found this great resource that you can use to supplement any curriculum that you choose.  OR you can use it as your curriculum.

Go and sign up for the Landry Academy Newsletter.  Before you tell me you don't need another newsletter sent to your inbox, you do need this one for science.  It isn't overwhelming, but it will keep you informed of all the upcoming free classes that he offers.... and get this.........

HE DOES THE DISSECTION....  can a get an amen from moms across America?!!?  This is great news for kitchen scientists everywhere!....  No more dissection trays in the kitchen sink when there is dinner to prepare.  No more scalpels falling into the wrong hands and them reshaping the more of that "smell" on your counter tops and in your sponge.... uggh!

To get a feel for how they are.... there are two recorded dissections available for you to look at right now!

As for High School Math......  You need to read the reviews I have written on several of the top online, and textbook curriculum's that are out there.  There are free trial options that are available, and you can spend some time this winter trying out a new curriculum, or over the summer try on a few programs to see if they are a fit for your family.
Really tho, remember that you can teach High School.  I really believe that anyone who lived through those years comes with automatic qualification to teach about those years.  High School is only an extension of what you have done in the past.  I am surprised daily at what I understand and remember about Algebra, and how I am able to explain it in a way that  makes sense, simply because I know my kids, and how they think.  I even understand some stuff about Algebra 2 ( and I never even took that class! ) 

I speak from experience... I have 2 in High School now, and we are making it just fine....  I know you will too!
Hope these resources help !
