WHAT CURRICULUM DO I CHOOSE???
A great place to start looking for curriculum is Cathy Duffy's 102 Top Picks. The book actually has a quiz to help you decide what style of programs may fit you best as a family. Another great resource for homeschooling ideas is the book, The Well Trained Mind (Wise/Bauer).
