I've never been in this forum, but was advised to come here to request help.  Not only do I need the books, I need help deciding what books to select.  If any members have the books, I would love to get them.  I know my grandson will take English, science, algebra, perhaps health.  He has had problems doing book reports and sticking to the guidelines when writing a paper.  He has a very vivid imagination and strays.  All the help I can get, is appreciated.

Thanks so much,

Irene

Well, there are probably hundreds of options! Do you have any idea of what you are looking for? Is this your first year or do you have experience with some that you liked/disliked? Are you looking for complete curriculum? Literature for reading?...

I will look through and see if I have anything, but I am sure you could find some appropriate literature, such as My Brother Sam is Dead. I will let you know if I come up with some actual courses that I have.

My son has done the home schooling for all these years until this Oct when I retired and I have taken over.  He has stuck with the general subjects.    I wouldn't mind a whole curriculum and need some workbooks as well as the text.  I know I need pre-algebra and algebra I as well as 9th grade English and US history.  Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
