Finances are tighter, but the schooling must continue on without a break. I have made a few changes to our curriculum to accommodate our budget and to keep the kids progressing in their grade level.
Two free resources I have recently discovered are:
1. A free Homeschool Tracker, which generates lesson plans, report cards, accumulative grading and resource lists. It downloads right to your computer and has an inexpensive upgrade that would benefit high school level students and parents.
2. The National Gallery of Canada CyberMuse, with artist related materials for ALL ages. A great way for those of us "in the boonies" to see and appreciate art, past and present in a fun way. At our local Homeschool group we have had a wonderful experience this semester learning about art and making our own interpretations of artists such as Picasso and Amedeo Modigliani
Hope these links are helpful!
