    Easy to use introduction to home school

    This book outlines what your child should know in each grade, however many of the suggested books are out of print. So some of the infomation is outdated. You can still design your own curriculum with books currently in print that meet the same guidelines. Scholastic is a great source of educational books for primary grades. I searched for books by author instead of by title and found a gold mine. Some good ones for the lower grades were Allan Fowler, Aliki, Henry Pluckrose, Janice Van Cleave, Peggy Kaye and Lois Ehlert. I found that the curriculum "benchmarks" were very similiar to the educational standards for my state (California) and a lot easier to understand. I began home schooling my Kindergartener this year and found it helpful to read the chapters up to 3rd grade for better information and more resources. This book would be great to begin with in Pre-school to give you time to develop your homeschool program for a few years until "real" school begins. I recommend this book as a homeschool PRIMER and a great book to begin with (at any grade level). Also teachers in the primary grades would find this book very helpful in desigining and presenting curriculum.

    One of the best homeschooling books

    I like this book better than The Well Trained Mind. It offers resources to meet grade specific standards, most of which can be obtained from the library. Ms. Rupp doesn't advocate a single method of homeschooling, but leaves that up to you. This is a solid guide to teach your children in a way that will preserve a love of learning.

    A Reference Book Every Homeschooler Needs

    This is a book that should be on every homeschooler's shelf. No matter your teaching style, this book will benefit you. I'm more of a classical/unity study teacher and I find this book to be a bit of a compass for me, even though it suggests certain history and science topics per grade level. I recommend this book to all my friends--I wish I had this when I first started homeshooling!

    Must have!

    Simply put, if you are teaching your children this book is a must have! I orginally checked it out of the library but wanted to reference it so often I soon ordered my own. A well-reasoned insightful look at where most kids are in the American graded system of schools. Much more open minded and helpful then the What Your X Grader...series.
