How can I homeschool affordably?

I get the same question all the time. How can I homeschool affordably? or some variation of that. I was in the same EXACT place myself. Homeschooling can cost as little or as much as you allow it.

Very first thing to do is make dua, pray, BEG Allah to grant you ease, pleasure and aid you. Once you’ve prayed about it. Set up your plan.

Ask yourself WHY to homeschool. How you plan on enjoying this and what your goals are.

Next, you will need to look up your homeschool laws by State.

You can do so by going here ~> http://www.hslda.org/hs/default.asp

I have many other articles, blog, and information on the subject of getting started and why I do you can also read on here and across the web. I’ve said to take advantage of the library over and over again because honestly you can find school textbooks, living books, encyclopedias, dictionaries and much more all there for your use. Here are a few “book” and documents leads for you. PLENTY of information at our fingertips. ENJOY

I get asked to recommend curriculum. I do NOT do this for various reasons. The biggest of these is I do NOT endorse nor do I recommend anything or single program because we are all different and each of our children are different as well as our families, values, practices, styles and beliefs. It is up to us, the parent, to review and evaluate everything before allowing our child to use it to ensure it fits with our beliefs and goals. Also I don’t use a curriculum. We are ECLECTIC homeschoolers and use various methods and make up our own curriculum off of different books, web sites, approaches, styles, and materials.

Here is more on the Styles of homeschooling for you to try them and see which method you prefer to use.
