101 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum. -

I find myself in a new place with home education.  I did a great deal of research when my kids started homeschooling.  My husband and I figured out our plan for our kids for grades K-8.  We felt good, and I really have not done the serious kind of research about home education since then.

Now I find myself with 3 children who are entering or about to enter high school and I find myself gearing up again to do more research.  I wanted to find a resource to help me sort out what is out there for my kids.

 I stopped by Cathy Duffy's booth at the Great Homeschool Convention and picked up her last copy of 101 Top Pick for Homeschool Curriculum : Chosing the Right Curriculum and Approach for Each Child's Learning Style. Because I am me, I asked her to sign the book.  She gave me an odd look, but did it anyway.

I have really enjoyed flipping through it and reading about what curricula are out there.  I am surprised at how much is out there as opposed to a few years ago.  I have enjoyed her reviews and information.  I have the eBook as well, but I like flipping through the pages and the quizzes in paperback book better.  But, if you are more techy the Kindle and eBook might work well for you.

She also has a web page with more reviews and tips.  She has extensive information on home education and many resources to get you started.   I enjoy her web site and the information she provides.  I highly recommend it.
