Jennifer Tharp, of My Online High School, submitted the following information for a complete online homeschool experience.
Information submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org:
My name is Jane Slotnick, and this will be my fifth year to teach personal finance at Oklahoma Christian School in Edmond. During my years, I have developed my own curriculum for my students. My husband, a programming whiz, decided he wanted to create an interactive web-based program that would allow kids to learn about many aspects of financial literacy in a real-life simulation. Everything from banking to taxes is included.
The name of the course is Personal Finance for Teens. URL is www.perfinforteens.com. When you select the Demo Site tab, you’ll be able to see both a teacher and student account. As a homeschool parent, you would be the teacher with as many students as necessary connected to your account. Several homeschooling families at my church have used the program and loved it. Learning has skyrocketed for both those families and the students I teach at OCS.
Please take a look at the program and share with the other families in your group. It is a great option for teaching this valuable life skill. If you have any questions, I would be happy to help you any time.
Thank you so much,
This does look like a great resource for homeschoolers. Since my kids aren’t old enough to start the program, I will pin it to a Pinterest board for future reference. So if your kids aren’t old enough either but it looks like a good curriculum, bookmark it, Pin it, save it somehow so you don’t forget about it! (FYI–I am not endorsing it, nor reviewing it, nor being compensated in any way to share the info here. Just like many other resources on this page, the owner emailed me asking me to share the information with others, and I am gladly obliging!)
Later that day we will have another meeting at 6pm – 8pm at one of the local libraries.
If you would like to attend please contact me and I will give you the meeting address.
We are currently in negotiations with a local church in Prescott near the Senator Hwy to see if we can use their campus as our regular meeting place. We would love to have you join us as we will hopefully be meeting once a week at this new location.
From one of our readers:
We are major-downsizing our book collection after 27 years of homeschooling our 11. Please put out the word to call us–Paul & Kitty Trout, and come with boxes ready to fill. 928-308-3572, Prescott Valley.
Thanks, Kitty, for sharing this info on the Hub! If anyone else has homeschool related information they want to share with our community, please email me at email@example.com. If you are in-the-know with things going on and would like to be a hub contributor/author, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since my oldest child is 10, I haven’t given this topic much thought. However, Scott Meadows, the developer of a transcript software from HSLDA, asked me to share this link to their transcript software.
I know there are several homeschoolers out there who are concerned about what their child needs to do to prepare for college. Do they need a transcript? What about ACT/SATs? How far can they get with dual-credit high school/community college classes?
