As homeschoolers, we are bombarded on a regular basis by things experts believe we need. Even well-meaning friends may share items they think our homeschool can’t survive without. But, in reality, how much of that do we really NEED? The answer is probably very little. However, I do believe there are five things your homeschool needs. And, chances are you already have these or have the means to provide them!

When I first began homeschooling I never really considered Geography a subject. I mean, that is part of History right? Oh, I was so wrong! You see, I could barely follow a map.

A struggling speller. If you have had one, you know how difficult the homeschool day can be for you and your child.

If you have taught one, you know exactly what I’m talking about. And you know how frustrating it can be for you and the student.
