July 4, 2008, Newsletter Issue #235: Umbrella Schools Are Homeschool Friendly

Tip of the Week

If you homeschool, and are looking for the quickest and easiest way to find an umbrella school in your area is contact a local homeschool group. These groups will generally have a running list of all the umbrella schools in your region. You can also go to your local library to locate this information. Public libraries are homeschool friendly and usually have a list of homeschool groups and umbrella schools in the area. You can also find a list of umbrella schools by contacting your state’s homeschooling association or checking at a reputable homeschooling curriculum website.

Thanks so much for reading the the Homeschool Tips Newsletter.

The new 2006-2007 Sonlight catalog is hot off the presses! In addition to new educational resources, we've also made some significant improvements to our curriculum, such as expanded flexibility in Reader choices for Levels K through 2.

The catalog also provides several articles with helpful homeschool tips. For example, check out the "Top Ten Goals" article (pp. 146-147) which can help you think through your personal philosophy when it comes to homeschooling. And "Why we use certain books that some homeschoolers won't touch" (pp. 144-145), that gets into some pretty important issues about the content of books. And you won’t want to miss “27 Reasons NOT to Buy Sonlight”—a perennial favorite (beginning on page 148).
