Home School Programs

Heidi, I am also new to homeschooling. My oldest are 6 and 5. I too haven''t found a program I like, but I am using a book that teaches the children to read (Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons,authors Engelmann, Haddox and Bruner) Each lesson only takes 15-20 minutes and they teach the child sounds, (rather than the name of the letter) phonics, and writing. I just started this fall with the book, and I have never seen my kids so excited about anything.

I hope this has helped a little. ]
