For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Homeschool essentials

There is a very interesting thread going on at the Homeschool Lounge about the top things needed for homeschooling. So, I thought I would post here the things that I think are essential for homeschooling:

Character traits:

Patience

Love

Determination

Endurance

Wisdom and discernment

Humor

Flexibility

Honesty

Tools:

Library card

Compute (with a printer and paper), with internet, if at all possible

Timer

Schedule

Organization system

A white board or chalk board

School supplies: pencil, pens, tapes, glue . . .

Craft supplies: crayons, markers, hole puncher, clay or play dough, paint . . .

Posters

Science and/or zoo membership

Educational games

A support system

And  last but not least we need a willingness to do what it takes and to stay committed to  our goals (assuming they are worthy ones), and above all lots and lots of prayer.
