If you live in Louisiana ? K12 is a very good online FREE homeschool curriculum.

K12 has online virtual charter schools in CA also.  CAVA is the main one:


K12's math is awesome.  I don't like their Spanish as well (but did middle school, not elementary).

If you don't want to use a virtual school, you could just purchase access to the two courses as an independent homeschooler.

I used K12 for K-8 as a homeschooler.  (No virtual school option at the time.)

You could try www.lessonpathways.com  We have not tried their math, but my children liked the history and science links.

With K-12 do I get o pick my kids subject choices and do I have to do all the classes or can I just say , I want my child enrolled in a foreign language class. What time of day   are the classes? Like public school 8 -3 or so , or do I choose when class starts. I don't know anyone who uses it so wanted to know more how it worked and is there freedom as if I was homeschooling or does he have to do the same coursework books that public schools use, because I use Christ centered based curriculum. Thanks for any info.

If you're interested in your children mastering multiplication in a really fun way, for a rather small price you can buy "Timez Attack. It's a really cool, VERY reinforcing way to learn. I homeschooled my grandson in second grade. We used the program every day for about fifteen to twenty minutes. After he mastered the multiplication tables, he still enjoyed the program. I've never seen a child beg to do his tables like my grandson did. Every day he would come to my house and go straight to the computer to do the program. He's in fourth grade now and still remembers the tables. He plays the game one in a while. Check out the site. It has a video, but there is also curriculum based material you might want to look at.
