Anyone have any suggestions on easy to read and interesting books on the subject of HS? I have found a lot out there but I am still unsure of what and how I am going to teach. Just need something to get me going in the right direction.

as far as knowing what to teach thats easy! reading riteing rithmatic!! the 3 r's!!!hahah
how old are the kids?if preschool just do some art and crafts they will learn, have fun,play, sing,
if ready to learn to read start with phonics and some art and crafts and maybe handwriting (if ready) , little math
if older and know how to read then go for
reading( literture, books) ,
language arts(grammar, writing, )
handwriting can be part of all of it or you can make some copybooks.
also theres health, a foriegn language, art and crafts,
I'm just guessing and honestly I think some of these other ladies are more knowledgable, so I'd listen to them. I think I would look up the laws for VA and follow them for as long as you are there, then if you come back to NC before the school year would be out, file your with them then. Mainly I'm just posting to give you a bump :) Good Luck!!!

Rebecca Rupp's Home Learning Year by Year is an EXCELLENT resource. Guidelines for each grade, living book titles, tips, etc.
The Well-Trained Mind by Susan Wise Bauer has tons of info.
Homeschooling For Dummies by Jennifer Kaufeld is another good book.
