Could we provide a thread where folks write down the full terms for acronyms that are used here commonly? I am a new homeschooler, and don't know what people are talking about a lot of the time. I have seen this done on another forum, and thought it might be a good idea for us here.

Here's one: http://www.secularhomeschool.com/feedback/4871-homeschool-abbreviations-acronyms-revisited.html

There have been others, but this is the most recent.

HTH!

This is the page here at SHS that has them:
The Secular Homeschool Community - Homeschooling Abbreviations and Acronyms (http://www.secularhomeschool.com/content/275-homeschooling-abbreviations-acronyms/)

But I see a couple that are wrong (BFSU, not BFSI) and several that aren't there like...
BW = Bravewriter
TWJ = The Writer's Jungle
SWS = Soaring with Spelling
WWS = Writing with Style
RS = can also be Right Start
CHOW = Child's History of the World
LHOTW = A Little History of the World
RS4K = Real Science 4 Kids
AAR = All About Reading
HoE= Hands on Equations
MiF = Math in Focus
MOTL = Math on the Level

... Some things people abbreviate a lot more than others though.

Thanks for piping in, everyone. And Farrar, thanks for those updated ones. We'll try to get those added.
