Here is a very special family that believes in ministering to widows( I consider a wife abandoned by her husband to be a widow too) and fatherless children. This is what true religion is.

They sponsor single mothers and their children in homeschooling . Great site and what generous wonderful people ! Check it out and see if you can get assistance and/or support,

I could have used this one ! Even when I was married , my husband had already abandoned my daughter and I , so I was a single  homeschooling mom for years before and after marrage. Anyway , enough about me. This site is for single parents who homeschool ! A much needed resource and support page.

For me , part of the fun of a field trip is interacting with family , friends and the public. However , if  you are homebound for any reason , this is an alternative. Some of these on-line field trips look really interesting . If you are inside your house watching the snow swirl around and pile up outside , take a trip !

Looking for a low cost home schooling plan ? How about free ? This is a Charlotte Mason style program. The reviews that I read from people who use this plan are very positive.

"Welcome to Ambleside Online, a free homeschool curriculum designed to be as close as possible to the curriculum that Charlotte Mason used in her own private and correspondence schools. Our goal is to be true to Charlotte Mason's high literary standards. Ambleside Online uses the highest quality books and costs no more than the cost of texts. The curriculum uses as many free online books as possible, and there is no cost to use this information or join the support group."
