tagged

I'm accepting the challenge of being tagged by Stacey.

1. ONE HOMESCHOOL BOOK YOU HAVE ENJOYED
The Christian Homeschool by Gregg Harris was the first book on homeschooling I read. A friend loaned it to me to read. I bought my own copy so I could loan it out to other people. It's been a long time since I actually looked at it, though.

2. ONE RESOURCE YOU WOULDN'T BE WITHOUT
The computer (including the connected printer) with internet access has become invaluable in homeschooling.

3. ONE RESOURCE YOU WISH YOU HAD NEVER BOUGHT
I know that there have been several over the years, but I either sold them or gave them away so I no longer have them around, taunting me. Perhaps the latest would be Alpha Omega's Spanish 2 Lifepac. My daughter hated Spanish 1, even though she did well in it. We made her continue on to Spanish 2 because we were following the rule that it's a good idea to have 2 years of the same foreign language for admission to many colleges. We finally allowed her to drop it after the first lifepac and she's now taking the language SHE wanted to learn, Mongolian. The Spanish 2 won't be wasted, though, it will go to my sister who is also forcing her kids to go on the Spanish 2.

4. ONE RESOURCE YOU ENJOYED LAST (This) YEAR
Although "enjoy" would be too strong a word for it, we sure appreciated MUS Geometry for my daughter.

5. ONE RESOURCE YOU WILL BE USING NEXT YEAR
I know everything we'll be using for next year, but I'll mention A Beka U. S. History.

6. ONE RESOURCE YOU WOULD LIKE TO BUY
Since I only have 2 things left that I'm considering buying for next year as I already own everything else, I'll list one of them: Alpha Omega's Home Economics Lifepacs.

7. ONE RESOURCE YOU WISH EXISTED
The perfect math programs tailored to the needs of each individual child.

8. ONE HOMESCHOOLING CATALOG YOU ENJOY READING
Rainbow Resource Center's huge catalog, or, as I like to think of it, the big book of fun.

9. ONE WEBSITE YOU USE REGULARLY
Only because I moderate it. I visit several homeschool message boards but rarely post any more.

10. TAG OTHER HOMESCHOOLERS
I'll do what Stacey did... if anyone who homeschools reads this and hasn't been tagged yet, consider yourself tagged.
