We started homeschooling our son last year at the beginning of January. I hadn’t homeschooled in a very long time. I homeschooled my other children when they were younger but that had been about 8 years. I had no idea where to start then I found K12 Online Public School. He would be learning the same thing that they are learning at his regular brick and mortar school but at home. I have a lot of good things to say about K12. They give you all the books and most of the supplies that are needed for school. They give you a teacher and even have virtual classes to make sure that the kids understand the lessons. My problem with it is that my son has special needs. He is legally blind in one eye and he has to do a lot of eye therapy to help ensure that his good eye stays strong. I can’t alter the classes to meet his needs. So I’ve decided to pull him out and go rogue. We will be doing a lot of eclectic curriculum. I’m really excited to start this new adventure. I’ve already been writing his lessons and I’ve found so many things online to help him. I’m going to list just a few.
