Supplementary materials

My two children go to school like the other children in the tiny island state I stay in. Since education is compulsory for about ten years here, it is an offence to any parent who do not send his child to school for no apparent reason as the child approaches his school going age.

However, I could not help but lament at the fact that too much is being covered in schools that merely doing schoolwork has indeed become inadequate. Supplementary materials is compulsory - kind of - unless your child is brilliant to ensure academic success.

To that end, I have sourced some interesting homeschooling resources to do my own reading up on the children education. Check out my personal favs:

- http://www.midnightbeach.com/hs/
- http://www.homeschoolmath.net/
- http://www.17minhomeschoolingsecrets.com/

Then there are of course the worksheet generator(s) which emphasise on drill and practice in subjects such as Maths, English and even science.
