Are you new to homeschooling?
Then I recommend How to Homeschool 101 as your first stop.
Are you trying to work out what to teach?
Here are some curriculum ideas and outcome lists for Australian homeschoolers.
We use Australian literature for copywork and dictation, Australian living books for Australian History, and a collection of Australian authors wrote our geography book. Our two Australian nature journals, A Bush Calendar and The Wonderland of Nature are reprinted classics.
I could go on but I’ll let you look around our bookstore.

"I just want to tell you that I have spent not hours, but DAYS on your website. Yes, DAYS!!!! I have read and reread and reread every single word you have to say, and I've checked out ALL of your sample files, probably every single link ..I want to tell you that your website is achieving exactly what you have set out to achieve. You certainly are a blessing to the newly starting homeschooler. –Tanya D, New Homeschool Mum, NSW
Hi Michelle, THANK YOU for the amazing resources you make available to others. I've just begun homeschooling this year, and into this coming term plan to embrace more of Charlotte Mason's style with my kids (8,6,4,1). It was a little daunting to do this from the outset, but after a term together, I feel ready to relax into it more. Thanks for you time. –Rachel Batterham
