    I'm not really sure how to answer your question. If my son seems to be struggling with a concept I have him do the worksheets for that lesson. If there isn't a worksheet or he did the worksheet and still doesn't understand I will sit down with him and slowly go over the lesson again talking about each step as we go along. That usually is enough for him. But there have been times when I have brought in extra books and resources. Multiplication is one of those areas. He just is not interested in it so I have brought in lots of extra material.

    Pennsylvania law is a bit complicated in the way it is written. It is not so complicated when you actually do it. You need to send a notarized affidavite to the superintendent of the school district you live in. The items required to be included are spelled out in this document. I strongly suggest that you join a local homeschool support group. They will be able to give you specific help with the school district that you will be working with. This group may help you there. If after you read the law you still have questions, please come back and ask away. We're here to help.
