  4. Hi, I'm in Seneca and seriously considering homeschooling my now 4 year old daughter. I'm also nervous about it, would love to talk. Email me at emily.hiesl@gmail.com
  5. Good morning, I am working on the courage to register my daughters (age 8 and 10) for homeschool next year. We are in North Mt Pleasant and would love to meet other homeschool families in the area. This accountability group seems unique. How many members are there? Where is it located? Do you offer curriculum guidance? We love books and are considering using Build your library as a jumping off point. We are also considering Math u can see and Daily 6 Trait writing. Does anyone have experience with these? Thank you-Erin

  7. Hi everyone - Thinking of homeschooling my son (13 yr old, 8th grader) next year. Anyone else with kiddos that age in this group? He is an only child so would love to connect! thanks
  8. So far, we've been able to effectively fight any legislation that requires testing, or has negatively impacted our right to homeschool. Warmly, Dianna
  9. hi, whatever happened with the bill requiring testing?

    Hi, You can give your children tests, or not - it's up to you. Standardized end-of-year tests aren't required for Option 3 homeschoolers. Have you had a chance to read through my FAQs here?: https://www.carolinahomeschooler.com/homeschool-faqs/ They will hopefully answer a lot of the questions you have. (Including the "am I doing enough" and "how do I know if he's ready for the next grade" questions. Let me know if you have any other questions after reading through my FAQs. Warmly, Dianna

    Need advice

    I read sooo much about homeschooling and I am still at a loss of where to start. I have tons of workbooks, plan on signing up foe carolina home schooler, but do they take tests? Have testing? I am a bit confused. How do I know I am doing enough, or if he's ready for the next grade? I am so new to this.
  13. We just decided to make the move from public school to homeschool for my rising 7th grade daughter. Her major concern with the transition is not having friends. Are there other middle school aged homeschoolers in the Rock Hill area that we could get her together with, or have her "meet" via facetime/text to adhere to social distancing? Looking forward to the journey, Helen
  14. Looking to connect with other families. Our newly homeschooling son is going into 2nd grade.

    To honor March as Women’s History Month and the upcoming 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, students will learn about women’s suffrage and important women who lived and worked in Columbia. We will also learn about International Women’s Day and its connection with women’s suffrage. Students will examine what it took to pass the 19th amendment and glean new knowledge of women’s suffrage and women like the Rollins Sisters, Matilda Evans, and Celia Dial Saxon. All homeschool students are invited to participate in Historic Columbia’s Homeschool Friday programs on the first Friday of the month. Each month’s program is from 10 - 11:30 am and includes hands-on activities while students learn and explore different themes and historic sites with Historic Columbia. Homeschool Friday programs are designed for students of elementary and middle school age levels. Homeschool Friday is open to families and homeschool groups of less than 10 students. For larger groups, we recommend arranging a separate visit to explore that month's topic. Program participants should gather in the Gift Shop at Robert Mills on the day of the program unless otherwise noted. The cost is per student, with an accompanying adult free. Homeschool Fridays are $5 for HC members, $6 for non-members and $8 for both members and non-members at the door.

    Hello from Irmo

    Hello. I homeschool my 7 year old daughter and do not know any other homeschool families in the area. I've noticed a lot of the posts from those in my area are about two years old. I'm curious if there are others still in the Irmo area.

    Research Roundtable | Modjeska Monteith Simkins

    until
    Modjeska Monteith Simkins was born in Columbia, S.C. on December 5, 1899, into a society that legally dispossessed women and people of color of their civil liberties. Over the course of her 92 years, she displayed a courage and perseverance that many argue was unmatched.
