I'm going to be homeschooling my daughter for the next year, and after wading through piles of educational sites and curriculum, I was wondering if any of you had any suggestions or ideas to share.

(And yes, folks, I'm already planning on getting someone ELSE to tutor her in math. Sheesh. )

YES! I am smiling here, as I homeschooled my daughter for the past five years, and have just awarded her a legitimate high school diploma last weekend. She always scored in the top 10% of the country on national exams, except physical sciences and math, where she still consistently scored above average. I kept her on college prep coursework, and aimed for a wide variety of educational coursework.
Each state has its own requirements, and some are more in tune with homeschooling than others. You can do this, Karen. It is difficult the first year or two, after that? You will relax, and the whole process will be easier to handle. Just keep it flexible while hitting the basics, and enjoy! Feel free to email me for support and ideas anytime you have doubts, set backs, or questions. BTW, I did not homeschool for religious reasons, nor because my child was not succeeding in public schools.

I had some well-meaning friends and family attempt to throw roadblocks in my way for the first three years. After that, they all gave up on me. LOL. It has its drawbacks I guess, but I found far more positives to hold onto than negatives.
What grade will she be in? Does she like group activities or prefer solo stuff? These can be important factors, but not ones that should necessarily alter your decision. Besides, after the first year, if it doesn't work well for you? she can always go back into the public domain.
