    Five years ago I began a homeschool journey for my two children while working full time in early intervention. I have also taught in special education, trained teachers and day care providers and developed curriculum for special group activities. Since joining the homeschool community I have found many friends, some of whom are educating their children with special needs. Common concerns I have heard from friends and from responses in this group were “How do I find/adapt/teach my child who learns differently?” and “How do I have time to give everyone the attention they need, not just my child with special needs?”.

    It's Spring! What does that mean in many schools? Picture Day. You know...lining up in your (hopefully) clean duds to sit under the bright lights and shine your best Shirley Temple grin at the cameraman for all posterity. 

    WHAT A JOKE!!! Not in OUR school!!!

    We know what homeschool pics REALLY look like.  Pajama-clad feet sneaking out to the garage to see if the chickens have hatched yet.  Furrowed brows bent over the cereal bowl and the latest Beyonders book. Sisters building their history project out of Legos. Little brother waiting by the mailbox to see if Flat Stanley will come today. Your teen proudly holding her Homeschool Debate trophy. THESE are the images that crowd our cameras and smartphones until they are at the bursting point.

    Well now, it's time to share!!   SecularHomeschool.com is proud to introduce...

    We used Saxon math from about 3rd grade through 8th grade. It does seem like a lot, so here's how we approached it:

    Wondering What Other Homeschoolers Feel About "Wonder"?
