Some of My Favorite Homeschool Links~What Are Yours?

(a freebie image from Dover Publications)


Since I am still very new to homeschooling, this being just our 2nd year, I am always on the lookout for great online (or otherwise) resources. I have found a few that I have really benefited from and wanted to share them with you:

HomeschoolReviews.com (good and honest parent reviews of curriculum)
DonnaYoung.org (printables & resources)
thehomeschoolmom.com (more printables & resources)
DoverPublications.com (great free samples of paintings, coloring pages, drawing tips, etc.)
Homeschool Freebie of the Day (wonderful free resources offered each day, such as e-books, etc.)
Maybe you have found some great resources, too, and would like to share them in the comments. I'd love to check them out!

You've got of my absolute faves already, but here are a couple more...

www.RainbowResource.com is my most trusted company to purchase from. the catalog is a juicy 3" thinck, because they sell EVERYTHING and include detailed reviews and descriptions.

Also, check out the discussion group at Yahoo! for FAITH Homeschool. It's local, and you don't have to be a member to pick everyone's brain online.

Thanks, Kara!
I am looking forward to getting plugged into a good support group this year~I really needed that last year and didn't have it.
