Schoolhouse Links

Welcome to...


This is an ongoing list of links geared towards homeschooling.  It ranges from pre-school to high school (and beyond!).  I do not endorse any of these site in particular, only that we have found them to be helpful in our own homeschooling journey.

One thing I would also like to recommend is Netflix.  You can get instant streaming to your home TV of thousands of documentaries, science shows, and more.  It is truly worth the money.  **My only warning?  Instant streaming has no parental controls.  Even just flipping through certain genres you will come upon things that you may not want your children to see.  My advice is for the adults in the house to do searches and put things of interest in the Instant Queue.  This is the first thing on the screen that comes up and beneath it is thing recently watched.  This should avoid any issues you might have.
