New To Homeschooling? Here Is The Ideal Way To Get Started...

If you are new to homeschooling or even just beginning the process of deciding to homeschool your children, this is the perfect way to get started - Homeschooling ABCs! Terri Johnson of Knowledge Quest, Inc. will guide you each step of the way to make your first year of homeschooling a wonderful experience you will want to continue for many years! She has put together a series of weekly email newsletters that will take you by the hand and introduce you to all the different facets of homeschooling, from curriculum choices to socialization, and everything in between.

Homeschooling ABCs consists of 26 weekly lessons (one arriving every 7 days) that will gently guide you through preparing to homeschool your children, what does homeschooling really mean on a daily basis, choosing curriculum, networking with other families and much, much more! Her approach is so similar to mine when I am teaching my Homeschooling 101 workshop, so I can wholeheartedly recommend this to any new homeschoolers! In fact, I think this should be mandatory for all those contemplating or beginning to homeschool:-). It would help alleviate so many fears and worries of those new to the whole world of homeschooling.

And the price for Homeschooling ABCs is so reasonable, I don't know why anyone would turn it down! The cost is $10 per month for the 6 month duration for a total of $60! And you also receive tons of extras like curriculum samples and other products along the way that are worth over $250!! She includes links to many products and/or books that would be helpful to the new homeschooler, as well as a myriad of tips and ideas to make your first year great!

It has been a joy to receive these weekly newsletters and walk the path just like I was a new homeschooler in order to experience it just like a subscriber would! It has brought me back to the basics in my homeschooling. Even after 10 years of homeschooling, it is important to get back to the basics and not get caught up in what everyone else is doing. I have truly appreciated Terri's approach and thoroughness in covering so many different aspects that are important to the new homeschoolers.

If you are new to homeschooling, just contemplating the idea, or have been homeschooling a little while but have begun to get frustrated or overwhelmed, Homeschooling ABCs may be just what you need to help you along the way and help you experience the joy and excitement of homeschooling your children.

Terri Johnson is also offering a free 5-day mini class called
