Homeschooling ABCs from Knowledge Quest

Are you thinking about homeschooling, but aren't sure where to start? I want to tell you about a wonderful e-book designed to take you step-by-step through the process of getting your homeschool off the ground. As a new homeschooler, I have found this resource to be invaluable! It is called Homeschooling ABCs and it is written by Terri Johnson of Knowledge Quest.

Terri has written this course of 26 lessons (each lesson begins with a letter of the alphabet) from her own experience as a homeschooling mom of 5. Her writing style makes you feel like you are talking to a good friend. Not only do you receive her seasoned advice on virtually every topic related to homeschooling, Terri has also put together a ton of bonus resources (freebies!) that amount to over $250 worth of curriculum!

When you sign up for the e-book, you will receive one lesson per week in the form of a link sent to your email. The link takes you to a page that contains all the downloads you need for that particular week. Each lesson is in PDF format and is short and sweet - usually only 10 pages or so (but chock-full of information!). You can save each lesson to your computer and print it out if you desire. I have to say that I even like the fonts and size type Terri used. Some e-books I have received have been so difficult to read on the computer. I didn't find that to be the case at all with Homeschooling ABCs. Each lesson contains links and reading recommendations, plus ideas of how to incorporate what you've learned into your own school day.

Here are just some of the topics covered by Homeschooling ABCs:
  • The basics of homeschooling (beginning with the Bible as your foundation)
  • Establishing your own philosophy, with a thorough explanation of the 5 most popular teaching methods used by homeschoolers
  • How to organize your materials as well as your life around homeschooling
  • How to make math fun (great ideas along with lots of links!)
  • Nature study and science exploration

And SO much more! There really is enough material here for those of you just starting out as well as those who have been homeschooling for years.

The best part of this great tool is the price! You only pay $60 for this 26-week course. That is just $2.30 per lesson. Considering all of the help you will get out of studying this course, plus the MANY fantastic freebies, plus the time you will save by not having to find all of this information on your own, Homeschooling ABCs is well worth the $60. You need to sign up now! There are only 585 memberships left. You should be one of them! And, to convince you that you need this course, click HERE to sign up for a free mini-course.
