There are many people that you may come in contact with as a part of your regular day that would be more than willing to take on a bit of homeschool instruction for you. If not to come by as a guest teacher, most will provide invaluable information for you to supplement your lesson plan. Itís a great experience! And what a feeling of accomplishment!
The key to remember donít panic. Resources are everywhere and many are right in your very neighborhood. Children are always learning. If you donít feel like you can effectively teach a particular subject, set up a field trip, or do a project together. Many outside home resources are delighted to have a young person who is genuinely excited and interested come by for a visit. And are more than willing to assist you with teaching a subject you don't know!
And youíll learn something too!
