When we started, I checked out books about homeschooling from the library and read forums and websites like this one. It was ALOT of reading, but when we did make the switch I felt very prepared.
Best wishes!

The first thing you need to do is read about the homeschooling laws for your state. You can do that at this link.

http://www.hslda.org/laws/

There will be information about what to do as far as withdrawing your child from public school on there too.

Once you've met the legal requirements, then you can choose a curriculum. Here are some links where you can read reviews.

There are many places to buy homeschool curriculm but my favorite place is Rainbow Resource. They have a huge selection and low prices. They also have reviews of many products too.
