Italian Dictionary French Dictionary

 

If your homeschooler (or someone else in your household) is learning a foreign language, these books are a great resource. I stumbled upon these accidentally, and fell in love with the Spanish version immediately. Yes,  I have my son learning the language, but I have also taken a considerable amount myself and love the language. I’m not fluent, but wish I was, so I love any awesome resources I come upon.

These books have tons of vocabulary for lots of different subject areas, complete with articles, and beautiful colorful pictures. A lot of pages also have a chart of related phrases or adjectives to go along with the main topic area.  Topic areas include sections such as:

Math and Science Classes for Homeschooled Students


23 Mar

 

My husband came across this site. How, I have no idea, but I thought I’d share it with others. It might be of interest to someone out there.

 

http://derekowens.com/

 

This site offers Math and Science classes for homeschooled students. There are on-site classes for those in the Atlanta area, and online classes for others.

Here are the online classes they offer:

Classes Offered
Math       Science
Pre Algebra Physical Science
Algebra 1
Geometry
Algebra 2 Physics
Pre Calculus
AP Calculus AB

 

There’s a $15 registration fee and then it’s $58 a month. The class can be spread out for as short or as long as you (or your student) want it to be. There are also textbook and workbook fees, which depend on the class you’re taking.

Here is where the online class information is: http://derekowens.com/onlineclasses.php

Like I said, I’ve never even heard of this, so, no, we haven’t tried it out, nor have I heard any reviews on it. It never hurts to know about more resources for classes out there, though.
