I know that Ella is only in the 3rd grade, but I'm getting nervous about some of the more advanced classes she's going to need coming up all too quickly.
I found The Well-Trained Mind blog to be filled with useful information, especially this two-part series on finding a quality online class. I am almost fiercely dedicated to Mrs. Bauer's curriculum, just because she seems to be so totally for the homeschooler and not the money. She hasn't been writing the blog long, but it's alread filled with really helpful information. And she was smack-dab right-on about the homeschool conventions. I was very disappointed in the one we went to in Orlando. The best part was that I got to meet Mrs. Bauer and buy my books directly from her and attend her class, which was really engaging, humorous and informational. Is that a word? She inspires me to be a better teacher for my girls.
