Homeschooling Your 1st Grader

M. Dial
The list author says: "Here are the tools I used for my 1st Grader. I consider myself an Eclectic Homeschooler. I borrow bits and pieces from everywhere to make the best fit for my kids. I tell everyone one that homeschools, to USE their library. It is the MOST important tool for homeschooling in my opinion.

Another great site for freebies is www.activityvillage.co.uk
