How many hours a day do you need to homeschool?
Essentially, most parents with a 5 or 6-year-old will be homeschooling for 2 hours a day. One parent said she recommends homeschoolers should study an hour a grade in the early years. For instance, Grade 1 should be one hour a day, Grade 2 should be two hours a day, and Grade 3 should be three hours a day.
How can I get free homeschool supplies?
Use your local library. There is no better source of free homeschool material available. Get a library card for every member of your family, and schedule trips to check out books and movies at least once each week. Most libraries also offer programs for children of all ages in reading and writing.
Can I get funding to homeschool my child?
Homeschooled children receive no funding support. There are organisations to support homeschooled children, but they sometimes charge for resources such as books or learning programs.
How much does a homeschool curriculum cost?
It all depends on your needs and how much time you have to put into researching bargains and planning lessons. The Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) estimates that the average parent spends about $300 to $600 per year, per child, on homeschooling curriculum, games, and books.
