If you are an experienced home school instructor, one thing you have learned is to always be on the lookout for the most updated home schooling resources available. The good news is that updated information and materials can easily be found at literally thousands of locations on the Internet, alone.

A quick search on Google using the keyword phrase "homeschooling resources" will result in 1,290,000 available pages of information. Information on every home schooling related topic imaginable, for every age group and grade level.

Whatever your needs may be, there will be no problem finding the exact teaching aids to meet your requirements. There are an abundance of websites offering low-cost, and in some cases, free lesson planning materials and worksheets. You will find online schools, and private vendors offering high-quality curriculum packages that can fit any budget.

If you are new to home schooling, and even if you're not, pay a visit your local library. There have been a great many very informative books written on homeschooling. Combine the information and guidance of these books with the available materials on the subjects you plan to teach, and you will find yourself well on your way to putting together an excellent curriculum package. Some of the publications in your library will include worksheets, blank maps and other home teaching resources that are easily duplicated at your local copy store.

Online and off line home school discussion groups or forums will introduce you to other families who are new to homeschooling and who are veterans of home schooling. These groups are a great place to get first-hand answers to your home schooling questions. It is also worth spending a little time searching through some online auction sites. You can find just about every home teaching resource you'll ever need for a fraction of the original cost.

Extra-curricular activities are also a valuable resource when schooling at home. Check with your local school district. By law, homeschooled children are allowed to participate in activities such as joining the school band, possibly participating in sports, and even many of the school clubs such as drama. While you may have to provide the transportation, it's well worth it to your home schooled student.

Do a little research, compare and check for quality, and you will have no trouble finding all the homeschooling resources you will need.
