Homeschooling in New Mexico

Hi, my name is Carol, and I homeschool in New Mexico! I am a mom of two sensational daughters ages 11 and 9. I have homeschooled them all their schooling years so far. We have evolved so much and continue to when needed.

My Favorite Sources for Support and Resources

We are involved in both local and state homeschool support groups. Usually, local groups ask for new members to attend at least one activity per month for the first two months. They encourage all new members to get actively involved from the beginning, so new members are welcome to arrange activities, classes and outings. I, of course, plan something that my girls will enjoy as every other parent does for their own children, that way there is something for every age. So there is a fruitful of activities to choose from.

Other sites that I recommend for local and state info are:

New Mexico is an Easy State to Homeschool In

New Mexico is probably the easiest state to homeschool in. Every year it seems that groups and events catering to homeschoolers grow.

To fulfill the basic legal requirements for NM, you must have at least a high school diploma or its equivalent. You must also notify the state superintendent of intent to homeschool within 30 days of the establishment of the homeschool and by April 1st of each year. There is a website and simple form to submit this.

I Love the Flexibility of Homeschooling

I definitely love the flexibility of homeschooling. I start my day of school between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. My daughters have a spreadsheet of what they need to do every day in Time4Learning (for an example: two lesson activities in math, two in social studies, etc.) This way, I don't have to be right there in order for them to start school. They work well independently, but I will sit down beside them on subjects I know they need extra help with. We have two computers in the household so they do work simultaneously. With my girls so close in age, we usually have them do science projects together. My husband or I will take them to the library to do their research. Their school day ends usually around lunch time. Both girls are in extracurriculars with other homeschoolers.

Choosing Homeschool Curriculum

Time4Learning's experience shows that there is no single, best homeschool material. Rather than feeling torn between homeschool resources, parents should select a diverse blend of materials and activities.

For families with more than one child, choosing a homeschool program can be more problematic. What works for one child may not work for another. What works for one subject may not work on the next. What works one year, may fall flat the very next year.

Some of the features that make Time4Learning so successful include:

  • Time4Learning appeals to a wide range of learning styles. Our online learning materials are especially well-suited to children who are visual or kinesthetic learners. These children can take advantage of Time4Learning's interactive, multi-media materials.
  • Children like using the computer to learn. It's a convenient, interactive homeschool resource that provides a welcome change each day to paper-and-pencil workbooks and textbook-based lessons.
  • Parents like that it tracks progress and helps children advance by clearly presenting and reinforcing each lesson.
  • Time4Learning's self-paced, modularized lesson plans allow you to move forward and back through the materials whenever you want. You can skip lessons that teach concepts your child has already mastered and repeat those he or she has not. The choice is yours. With Time4Learning, you are always in control.

Time4Learning is proven effective with homeschoolers, has a low monthly price, is easy-to-use, and provides a money-back guarantee so you can make sure that it works for your children!
