Homeschool InformationWritten by Mary Joyce
Continued from page 1
There is no right or wrong curriculum you can choose to homeschool. You have choices of anything from text books to home school computer software packages. The learning tools that you choose can be based on childrenís ages or even subject matter that is being taught. You can get text or software directly through publisher, or at book fairs, or even flea markets and garage sales. Homeschool learning material is everywhere. And donít forget your public library. Itís free!
Although cost of all materials you will need and use does require a significant investment, I think, however, that youíll find that homeschooling demands more of your time than it does your pocket book.
Be creative, and use your resources. Homeschool information is plentiful. Get out on internet a just do some basic searching on homeschooling. You will find more information, ideas and support than you could ever need to use.

Top 5 School Fund Raiser IdeasWritten by Dion Semeniuk
Continued from page 1
Next on list of school fundraising ideas is rubber duck derby. In past few years, this has become a very popular school fundraising idea. Not only is rubber duck derby fun, but also a great way to involve community while earning money. You could work with your local grocery stores to sell rubber ducks for $1, which gives buyers a chance to win a valuable donated prize. Then on a specified date, ducks are taken to a local park with a lake. All of rubber ducks are emptied into water at once and first one to cross finish line wins.
Next for successful school fundraising ideas is car wash. Many companies will donate water for car washes so all you have to do is bring garden hoses, towels, Windex and paper towels, and signs leading people in right direction. You can set price at $1 to $5 per car or establish car wash fundraiser as a donation basis. Either way, you will find that you make quite a bit of money in exchange for some hard work and fun.
Finally, one of most popular and most successful school fundraising ideas is a good, old-fashioned bake sale. For this, students (and probably parents) would donate baked goodies to include brownies, cookies, cake, pie, and miscellaneous items. Then, students would work outside a strip mall or grocery store, encouraging people to buy. Usually, people are very supportive of a bake sale and if food is good money is too.
