Delaware Homeschooling

Homeschooling is easier and better when you have the right information and support. You also need a place to get your questions answered. This is that place. Here you'll find information about the laws regulating homeschooling in Delaware, how to find support groups, activities you can use to learn and have fun, and practical tips for making homeschooling run more smoothly.


Quote of the Day Back to Top
All schools, all colleges, have two great functions: to confer, and to conceal, valuable knowledge. The theological knowledge which they conceal cannot justly be regarded as less valuable than that which they reveal. That is, when a man is buying a basket of strawberries it can profit him to know that the bottom half of it is rotten.
Mark Twain

Does Homeschooling Research Help Homeschooling
Larry & Susan Kaseman
Homeschoolers sometimes feel uncertain when faced with a request that they participate in a research study being done on homeschooling. On one hand, they are pleased with the growing interest in homeschooling, glad that the value and importance of homeschooling is finally being recognized and acknowledged. They want to do anything they can to help homeschooling. But something makes them uneasy. How will this research affect homeschooling, they wonder? What are the potential pitfalls and problems? This article discusses research that is based on gathering and manipulation of information about homeschoolers' behavior, values, personal data (age, income, educational background, etc.), history, use of curriculum, test scores, opinions, attitudes, beliefs, needs, and desires with the intent of making generalizations about homeschooling and homeschoolers. The focus is on this kind of research since it poses risks for homeschoolers.
African-American Single Parent Homeschoolers
African-American Single Parent Homeschoolers is a discussion group designed to lend support and resources to parents who are home schooling alone.
Organizing a Book Club
Book clubs all of a sudden have become hot stuff--which makes perfect sense, since the joys of reading a great (or even not-so-great) book is the opportunity to hash it over with interested friends afterwards. Book clubs vary widely in character and activity, depending on the goals, ages, and reading choices of the participants. If the range of available choices doesn't suit you (mother/daughter clubs, for example, don't do much for our three-boy household), the obvious solution is to start one of your own.
Developmental Milestones for Preschool Mathematics
E. Geist
Children’s ability to understand mathematics takes a big leap forward in the preschool years. Their strengthening ability to represent using manipulatives, symbols, and signs opens up many new possibilities. Children also make strides in algebra and patterning. They can sequence events in time by age three. By age four, they can re-create patterns or make their own repeating pattern. During the preschool years, the child’s ability to problem solve takes on a new zeal. Children’s ability to classify objects is more developed; they can sort and organize objects into different categories and tell which pile has more. This chart details the skills that children can exhibit at different ages.
Alternatives for 18-Year Old Homeschoolers
Larry and Susan Kaseman
Increasing numbers of homeschoolers (and conventionally-schooled young people) are choosing alternative ways of living and learning after they reach age 18. They are moving beyond the widespread assumption that high school graduates should either go to college, get a full-time job and live on their own, or join the military. Instead, many homeschoolers choose to build on and expand what they have been doing: learning through life experience; pursuing their passions; interacting with people of many different ages; and doing real work that contributes to their own growth and development and strengthens them, their families, and their communities.
