    First, you need to contact you local school district-they will be able to tell you the requirements for home-schooling in your state. Different states have different requirements-some require home schooled students to take the yearly assessment (standardized) tests for their grade level. Then you need to decide on a program to follow, preferably one that follows your state guidelines. Many states have an online school for home-schooled students (in Colorado, it's k12.com/Colorado), with instruction by state certified teachers.

    Which state do you live in? Try to google home schooling + your state, sure you'll get the website for homeschooling. My friend is doing that for her kindergarten daughter. They provide the school supplies and internet connection and you need to submit all the work on-line. She said it's really good. Good Luck!!
