4. I’m seeking homeschooling support in Wyoming, but is HOW for Christian families only?
Partnership in HOW is open to all family-funded, parent-directed, home educating families in Wyoming (and therefore not just Christian families). HOW board of director leadership however is couple-based and Christian-directed.
5. I’m new to homeschooling, how do I choose a curriculum?
Pray! Best advice I was given when I first started homeschooling: give yourself at least 3 years to find out what works for you and your children. Become a student of your children, learn their learning styles, likes and dislikes, struggles and what comes naturally. All of these things will help you wade through the mounds of options for curriculum. Continue to pray and remember, the curriculum is just a guide for you, you are your students best teacher, make the curriculum work for you, don’t be a slave to it!
